Did Ali Anger Fatima

There is a famous ḥadīth of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) about Fāṭimah (عليها السلام) in which he says, “Whoever angers Fāṭimah has angered me”. Recently, Sunnīs have attempted to take out narrations from the Shī`ah books which alludes to Imām `Alī (عليه السلام) angering Fāṭimah (عليها السلام)

There are two narrations that allude to this, both of the narrations are from al-Ṣadūq’s `Ilal al-Sharā’i`. These narrations are fairly lengthy, so I will only translate the pertinent portions of the matn (content of the ḥadīth), and then I will analyze each ḥadīth individually. I will not only analyze each ḥadīth’s sanad via Shī`ah books of Rijāl, but I will also delve into the Sunnī books of Rijāl for many of the narrators, in order to get a holistic perspective on certain narrators.

After my analysis, inshā’Allāh, you will see that these narrations are a pure fabrication against Imām `Alī (عليه السلام), in order to lower his status.

    أبو العباس، قال: حدثنا أبو الفضل بن يوسف الجعفي، قال: حدثنا محمد بن عكاشة، قال: حدثنا أبو المغرا حميد بن المثنى، عن يحيى بن طلحة النهدي، عن أيوب بن الحر، عن أبي إسحاق السبيعي، عن الحارث، عن علي (صلوات الله عليه) قال: إن فاطمة شكت إلى رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله) فقال: ألا ترضين أني زوجتك أقدم أمتي سلما، وأحلمهم حلما، وأكثرهم علما، أما ترضين أن تكوني سيدة نساء أهل الجنة، إلا ما جعل الله لمريم بنت عمران، وأن ابنيك سيدا شباب أهل الجنة.

    1. Assalāmu `Alaykum ShiaofAhlulbait,

      I do not see how this hadīth relates to the topic at hand. It just says that Fātimah complained to the Prophet, and the Prophet started saying are you not please with you being married to the best of my ummah, etc. it doesn't state why she was complaining.

      If you have a question regarding the authenticity of this hadeeth, contact me through the Contact Us form of my blog, and I will be able to grade this hadīth for you within the day you email me.
