Al-Adhra

This is one of the names given to Fatima. This name declares that she was always a virgin, in the meaning that she was chaste.

Many traditions have already been mentioned, which attest to the fact that she was conceived of heavenly food, and that Fatima was a human huri. There is not exaggeration in this expression, rather, stating that Fatima was always virgin, is nothing but the absolute truth. Besides the narrations that verify this fact, the Holy Quran states:

(We have created (the huri) of special creation; and made them virgin pure (and undefiled).) (56: 35-36)

This clarifies that huris are always virgins. Majma al-Bayan explains this verse as follows: ((What is meant by virgin pure) is that whenever their husbands come near them (have sexual intercourse with them), they find them virgins.)

Imam Sadiq (A) was asked: "How can a huri always be a virgin (no matter how many times her husband comes near her)?"

The Imam (A) answered: "Because (huris) are created from pure goodness where no blight can alter them, nor does decrepitude inflict them... menstruation does not pollute them..."
