Aba Abdillah (as) said: Janabe Fatima (as) died on the 3rd of Jamadi al-Thani, in 11 AH. The reason for her demise was that Qunfudh, the slave of Umar, struck her with the handle of his sword – as per Umar’s order. So (as a cause) Mohsin (as) was miscarried, and Fatima (as) became extremely sick. She did not allow anyone from those who hurt her to enter upon her.

The two men (who hurt her) – who were the companions of the Holy Prophet (sawa) – asked Ameer al-Mu’mineen, Imam Ali (as) to intercede on their behalf to her (as), so he (as) asked her (as). When they (the ones who hurt her) entered upon her (as), they said to her (audaciously): “How are you, oh daughter of the Prophet?” She (as) replied: “Well, Bihamdillah.” Then she (as) said: “Have you not heard the Prophet (sawa) say: “Fatima is a part of me, so whoever hurts her has indeed hurt me, and whoever hurts me has indeed hurt Allah?”

They replied: “Yes (we have heard it).” She said: “By Allah, you have both hurt me!

He (Imam al-Sadiq (as)) said: “so they left her (as) while she was furious with them.
