The House of Fatema Zahra (sa) .... The Hijaab of Allah (swt)

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)..."

Hazrat Mohsin Ibn Ali (a.s.): A Victim of Oppression and Terrorism


The demise of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) triggered a chain of events that caught the Muslims unawares. They accepted these events as if that was the most natural thing to do and remained unmindful of the far-reaching consequences of their submission.
One such incident that stands out in the aftermath of the Holy Prophet’s (s.a.w.a.) demise is the siege on Fatimah’s (s.a.) house and the eventual attack that claimed two lives in its wake, one of them being Fatimah (s.a.) herself. The other one being the martyrdom of Mohsin b. Ali (a.s.), which is the subject of this article.

Unbelievably true

Mohsin b. Ali’s (a.s.) martyrdom is so unsettling and even incredible that it has been denied by many Muslims.
When one comes to think of it, indeed the incident is unbelievably true. Not just the martyrdom of Mohsin b. Ali (a.s.), the entire chain of incidents, the oppressors and oppressed ones, everything about the attack on Fatimah’s (s.a.) house is unbelievable.
It is unbelievable that a hair on Fatimah’s (s.a.) would be harmed let alone being inflicted with a fatal body blow. Especially when the Muslims were served a crystal clear warning by the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) in this regard when he informed them that Fatimah’s displeasure was the cause of his displeasure and his displeasure was the cause of Allah’s displeasure and incurring Allah’s displeasure would drive one to Hell.
It is unbelievable that Ali b. Abi Talib (a.s.) who was anointed Ameerul Momineen (a.s.) publicly by the Prophet (s.a.w.a.) on divine command less than three months before his (s.a.w.a.) demise in Ghadeer-e-Khumm and was the unanimous choice of Allah and His Messenger (s.a.w.a.) as highlighted by every notable incident in Islam’s history should be subjugated by individuals who could not even compare to the dust of his horse’s hooves which incidentally Allah swears by in Surah Aadiyaat.
It is unbelievable that the perpetrators of this crime were none other than the so-called companions of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) and his so-called successors who claimed proximity and brotherhood with the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) and after whose names the Muslims invoke Allah’s satisfaction and mercy.
It is unbelievable that the atrocities meted out to Fatimah (s.a.) would eventually claim her life inducing Ali (a.s.) to declare that she was like a flower nipped in the bud and confessing to the Prophet (s.a.w.a.) his helplessness in safeguarding the Prophet’s (s.a.w.a.) trust. All this within a few days of the Prophet’s (s.a.w.a.) demise and revelation of the Verse of Purification (Surah Ahzaab (33): 33) and Incident of the Cloak testified to by all the Muslims as being related to Fatimah (s.a.) along with her husband and sons.
It is unbelievable that Fatimah (s.a.) willed her burial to be carried out in the dead of the night deeming the companions in question unfit to attend her funeral and in this way categorically refuting their claim to caliphate and so-called proximity to her father (s.a.w.a.) and inflicting a slap so hard on her oppressors that its reverberations will always be felt by her oppressors and their partisans.
Finally it is unbelievable that the struggle launched by a few individuals for worldly power and status would mercilessly uproot the existence of a six-month unborn infant from the comfort of his mother’s womb.
Over here, the martyrdom of Mohsin b. Ali (a.s.), the third son of Ali b. Abi Talib (a.s.) and Fatimah (s.a.) after Hasan (a.s.) and Husain (a.s.), has been analyzed in detail. Other events before and after the martyrdom, although very significant from the viewpoint of Ali b. Abi Talib (a.s.) and Fatimah (s.a.) in particular and Muslims in general, are referred to in lesser detail.
Despite claims to the contrary by misinformed and uninformed Muslims, it is well-documented by scores of scholars from both the sects – Ahle Sunnah and Shias, that there was a full-scale attack on Fatimah’s (s.a.) house only a few days after the Prophet’s (s.a.w.a.) demise. The objective of the companions who assaulted Fatimah (s.a.) and Ali b. Abi Talib (a.s.) was to extract Ali’s (a.s.) allegiance for Abu Bakr, without which they knew Abu Bakr’s caliphate would lack any form of legitimacy.

'May the eye not be cool that does not cry over Mohsin b. Ali'

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”.

Umar's (la) letter to Muawiya (la) regarding the attack on the house of Janabe Zahra (sa)

Umar b. Khattab l.a. wrote a letter to Muaiyah l.a., the contents of which were as follows:  

‘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.’”
