Fatimah is a part of me; whoever angers her has definitely angered me

 

فاطمة بضعة مني فمن أغضبها فقد إغضبني

Fatimah is a part of me; whoever angers her has definitely angered me.

 

This hadith has been transmitted by al Bukhari[1].

It appears in a tradition not long thereafter that Fatimah complained to Nabi salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam when ‘Ali proposed to the daughter of Abu Jahl:

إن الناس يزعمون أنك لا تغضب لغضب ابنتك

People think that you do not get angry for the sake of your daughter’s anger.[2]

 

Sayyidah Fatimah radiya Llahu ‘anha was human, and was prone to error and correctness. Whoever denies this has denied her human nature. The Rawafid have rejected her human nature when they claimed that she is nur (celestial light) from Allah and that she was a divine omnipotent matter which manifested itself on earth in the form of a woman. Khomeini made this ludicrous claim in his book Manzilat al Mar’ah fi al Islam.

Allah subhanahu wa ta ‘ala will never be angry at Sayyidina Abu Bakr radiya Llahu ‘anhu for failing to give Fadak to Sayyidah Fatimah radiya Llahu ‘anha since Allah subhanahu wa ta ‘ala Himself had determined the law of a nabi not being inherited by his children.
