Theme Three

Let us present a third aspect. According to Sayyidina ‘Umar radiya Llahu ‘anhu, honouring and respecting Sayyidah Fatimah radiya Llahu ‘anha due to her being the daughter of Rasulullah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam is necessary. This is a glaring evidence of passionate reverence for Rasulullah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam. Hakim al Nishapuri reports this narration in al Mustadrak:

 

إن عمر بن الخطاب دخل على فاطمة بنت رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم فقال يا فاطمة والله ما رأيت أحد أحب إلى رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم منك والله ما كان أحد من الناس بعد أبيك صلى الله عليه وسلم أحب إلي منك

‘Umar ibn al Khattab entered upon Fatimah bint Rasulillah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam and said, “O Fatimah, by Allah, I have never seen anyone more beloved to Rasulullah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam than you. By Allah, there is no one more beloved to me after your father salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam than you.”[1]
