كتاب الطرف للسيد علي بن طاووس نقلا من كتاب الوصية للشيخ عيسى بن المستفاد الضرير، عن موسى بن جعفر، عن أبيه (عليهما السلام) قال: لما حضرت رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله) الوفاة دعا الانصار وقال … ألا إن فاطمة بابها بابي وبيتها بيتي، فمن هتكه فقد هتك حجاب الله "، قال عيسى: فبكى أبو الحسن (عليه السلام) طويلا، وقطع بقية كلامه وقال: هتك والله حجاب الله، هتك والله حجاب الله، هتك والله حجاب الله يا امه صلوات الله عليها
From" Kitab al-Turf" of Sayed ibn Taoos quoting from Kitab al-Wassiyah of Shaikh Isa bin al-Mustafaad al-Zareer from Imam Musa bin Jafar al-Kazim (as) from his Father (as):
"When Prophet Mohammad (saww) was about to die, He called the Ansaar's and said, ... "Indeed the door of Fatema (sa) is My door, and Her house is My house. So whoever disgraces it has disgraced the Hijaab (veil/covering) of Allah (swt)."
The narrator Isa then says, "Abu al-Hasan Imam Kazim (as) then cried for long and cut of rest of his speech and said, "By Allah (swt) the Hijaab of Allah (swt) was disgraced, By Allah (swt) the Hijaab of Allah (swt) was disgraced, By Allah (swt) the Hijaab of Allah (swt) was disgraced, O My Mother (sa)..."

Mufazzal b. Umar (r.a.) in a lengthy tradition from Imam Jafar Sadiq (a.s.) relates -
وَ يَأْتِي مُحَسِّنٌ تَحْمِلُهُ خَدِيجَةُ بِنْتُ خُوَيْلِدٍ وَ فَاطِمَةُ بِنْتُ أَسَدٍ أُمُّ أَمِيرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ ع وَ هُنَّ صَارِخَاتٌ وَ أُمُّهُ فَاطِمَةُ تَقُولُ هذا يَوْمُكُمُ الَّذِي كُنْتُمْ تُوعَدُونَ الْيَوْمَ تَجِدُ كُلُّ نَفْسٍ ما عَمِلَتْ مِنْ خَيْرٍ مُحْضَراً وَ ما عَمِلَتْ مِنْ سُوءٍ تَوَدُّ لَوْ أَنَّ بَيْنَها وَ بَيْنَهُ أَمَداً بَعِيداً
On the Day of Resurrection, Khadijah b. Khuwailid and Fatima b. Asad, the mother of Ameerul Momineen (a.s.) will come forth carrying Muhassin (Mohsin). They will be shrieking while his (Mohsin’s) mother – Fatima (s.a.), will be reciting the verse, “This is your Day, which you were promised.”- Ambiya (21): 103 (and the verse) (Remember) The Day (of Judgement) when every soul shall find present whatever it has wrought of good; and whatever it has wrought of evil, it will wish that the distance between it and himself was wide.” Ale Imran (2): 30).
قَالَ فَبَكَى الصَّادِقُ ع حَتَّى اخْضَلَّتْ لِحْيَتُهُ بِالدُّمُوعِ ثُمَّ قَالَ لَا قَرَّتْ عَيْنٌ لَا تَبْكِي عِنْدَ هَذَا الذِّكْرِ قَالَ وَ بَكَى الْمُفَضَّلُ بُكَاءً طَوِيلًا
He (Mufazzal) said: At this Imam Sadiq (a.s.) wept till his beard was soaked with his tears.
Then he (a.s.) said: May the eye not be cool that does not cry over this remembrance (of Mohsin).
And Mufazzal wept for long.
ثُمَّ قَالَ يَا مَوْلَايَ مَا فِي الدُّمُوعِ يَا مَوْلَايَ فَقَالَ مَا لَا يُحْصَى إِذَا كَانَ مِنْ مُحِقٍّ ثُمَّ قَالَ الْمُفَضَّلُ يَا مَوْلَايَ مَا تَقُولُ فِي قَوْلِهِ تَعَالَى وَ إِذَا الْمَوْؤُدَةُ سُئِلَتْ بِأَيِّ ذَنْبٍ قُتِلَتْ قَالَ يَا مُفَضَّلُ وَ الْمَوْؤُدَةُ وَ اللَّهِ مُحَسِّنٌ لِأَنَّهُ مِنَّا لَا غَيْرُ فَمَنْ قَالَ غَيْرَ هَذَا فَكَذِّبُوهُ
Then he (Mufazzal) said: O my master how many tears O my master? Then he (a.s.) said: They cannot be numbered for the one worthy of them.
Then Mufazzal said: O my master what do you say about the verse – “And when the female infant buried alive is asked, for what sin she was killed.” (Takweer (81):8-9).
He (a.s.) said: O Mufazzal the female infant buried alive is Mohsin, by Allah, because he is from us and he is none other, if someone claims he is someone else then he has denied him.
قَالَ الْمُفَضَّلُ يَا مَوْلَايَ ثُمَّ مَا ذَا قَالَ الصَّادِقُ ع تَقُومُ فَاطِمَةُ بِنْتُ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ ص فَتَقُولُ اللَّهُمَّ أَنْجِزْ وَعْدَكَ وَ مَوْعِدَكَ لِي فِيمَنْ ظَلَمَنِي وَ غَصَبَنِي وَ ضَرَبَنِي و جَزَعَنِي بِكُلِّ أَوْلَادِي فَتَبْكِيهَا مَلَائِكَةُ السَّمَاوَاتِ السَّبْعِ وَ حَمَلَةُ الْعَرْشِ وَ سُكَّانُ الْهَوَاءِ وَ مَنْ فِي الدُّنْيَا وَ مَنْ تَحْتَ أَطْبَاقِ الثَّرَى صَائِحِينَ صَارِخِينَ إِلَى اللَّهِ تَعَالَى فَلَا يَبْقَى أَحَدٌ مِمَّنْ قَاتَلَنَا وَ ظَلَمَنَا وَ رَضِيَ بِمَا جَرَى عَلَيْنَا إِلَّا قُتِلَ فِي ذَلِكَ الْيَوْمِ أَلْفَ قَتْلَة
Mufazzal said: O my master then what?
Imam Sadiq (a.s.): Fatima (s.a.), daughter of the Prophet (s.a.w.a.) will rise and she will say: O Allah fulfill Your Promise and Undertaking concerning me regarding the one who oppressed me, usurped from me, struck me, made me restless regarding all my children.
Then all angels of the seven heavens and carriers of the Arsh, residents of the atmosphere and all in the world and under the layers of the soil will weep for her with their wailing and shrieking addressed to Allah, the High. Then none will survive from our killers and oppressors and those who were satisfied with what transpired with us except that he will be killed on that day a thousand killings.
Allamah Majlisi (r.a.) in the footnote of the aforementioned tradition: The author estimates that the thousand killings will be more severe than the Fire of Jaheem, we seek refuge in Allah from it. Allah, the High, says: And (as for) those who disbelieve, for them is the fire of hell; it shall not be finished with them entirely (Faatir (35): 36 and it is said they will say - And they shall call out: O Malik! let your Lord make an end of us. (Zukhruf (43): 77). And from what has been narrated there is no way out after Hashr from death. Then it is surprising that these oppressors have been singled out (with a thousand deaths for oppressing those) who were killed in Allah’s Way about whom Allah says – “nay, they are alive” while regarding the oppressors Allah, the High says – “surely the unjust will not be successful”.

‘I went to the house of Ali, after having decided with others to bring him out of the house. Fatima came out and I told her, ‘Tell Ali to come out and swear the oath of allegiance to Abu Bakr l.a. for all Muslims have done so.’
Fatima replied that Ali was busy in arranging the Quran.
I said, ’Keep this talk aside, tell Ali to come out or else we will forcefully enter the house and bring him out!’
At that moment, Fatima came and stood with her back towards the door and said, ‘O misled liars! What do you say and what do you want from us?’
I addressed her and she said, ‘What do you want O Umar?’
I replied, ‘Why has your cousin sent you here to reply while he remains seated behind veils?’
Fatima said, ‘Your rebellion has brought me out O Umar and I have ended my proof upon you, and every misled is erroneous.’
I said, ‘Keep these vain and womanish words aside and tell Ali to come out of the house.’
She replied, ‘You are not worthy of love and generosity. Do you make us fear the ‘Party of the Devil’ O Umar? Verily the Party of the Devil are the losers!’ (Surah Mujadilah (58): 19)
Hearing this I said, ‘If Ali does not come out of the house, I will bring fuel and kindle a fire and burn down the house along with its dwellers or I will take Ali to the Masjid for (the oath of) allegiance.’
Then I took the whip (of Qunfudh) and struck Fatima with it and told Khalid b. Walid, ‘Bring firewood’, then again I told her, ‘I will burn down the house!’
Fatima said, ‘O enemy of Allah and enemy of the Prophet of Allah s.a.w.a. and the enemy of the Commander of the Faithful!’
Two hands came out from behind the door to stop me from entering the house, however I pushed back the hands and then pushed the door with force, while striking at her hands with the whip, so that she would let go of the door. She wailed and wept due to the intense pain of the whip and her weeping was such a heart-rendering scream that it was as if my heart was going to melt and I almost retreated. Suddenly, I recalled the envy and avarice which I had towards Ali because he was the one that had shed the blood of the eminent Quraish apostates and thus, I kicked at the door, however she had grasped the door such that it would not open. When I kicked at the door, I heard the cry of Fatima and thought that this cry would topple the entire city of Medina.
In this state Fatima called out, ‘O Father! O Prophet of Allah! How do they treat your beloved and your daughter! O Fizza! Hasten to my aid, for by Allah, the child in my womb has been killed.’
I presumed that Fatima had stood with her back to the wall due to the extreme pain of labour and at this point, I pushed at the door with intense force and the door opened. When I entered therein, Fatima came and stood in front of me (even though she was in immense pain), but my intense anger had overwhelmed me as if a veil was cast before my eyes. In this state, I slapped her on her face, striking her veil, and she fell down to the ground.’”
(This letter is quoted by Allamah Majlisi r.a. in Behaar al-Anwaar in which he says - I have related this letter from Dalail al-Imamah vol. 2 of Emaad al-Deen Tabari r.a. that after the martyrdom of Imam Husain a.s. at Karbala, Abdullah b. Umar l.a. along with a group of people from Medina came to Syria. They protested in front of Yazid l.a. regarding his atrocities at Karbala and in this gathering, Yazid l.a. told Abdullah b. Umar l.a., “Do you wish to see the letter of your father”, saying this he brought forth the letter (quoted in the text) of Umar l.a. which was kept in a case and then he gave it to Abdullah l.a..)
