For other people named Fidda, see Fidda (disambiguation).

Fiḍḍa Balāghī (فضه بلاغی) (d. 1280/1863-4) was a female Shiite scholar who had permissions for the transmission of hadiths. Mulla Fidda was the daughter of Ahmad Balaghi, the wife of Hasan Balaghi, and the mother of Muhammad Jawad Balaghi. She learned the Qur'an and Arabic from her father, and jurisprudence and principles of jurisprudence from scholars of her family, from who she received permissions for the transmission of hadiths as well. Fidda taught jurisprudence and principles of jurisprudence as well as hadiths. Some seminary students attended her lectures. Some scholars proofread their versions of the book, al-Qawanin, by reciting the book to her, because she had a permission from the author of al-Qawanin.

In his Takmila, al-Sayyid al-Hasan al-Sadr says,

"Fidda was a knowledgeable woman who transcribed books in exchange for money, and this was how she made a living. Some of the books she has transcribed are still available, such as Kashf al-ghita' the transcription of which was finished on Friday, Dhu l-Qa'da 3, 1249 (March 14, 1834). Fidda Balaghi passed away in 1280/1863-4."
