Miswar (ra) narrates that the Messenger of Allah (saw) said, “Fatimah is my fruitful branch, I am pleased with what pleases her and I am troubled by whatever troubles her.”

60. عن ابن عباس رضي الله عنهما رفعه: أنا شجرة، و فاطمة حملها، و علي لقاحها، و الحسن و الحسين ثمرها، و المحبون أهل البيت ورقها من الجنة حقـاً حقـاً.

Abdullah bin Abbas (ra) narrates this marfu tradition in which the Holy Prophet (saw) said, “I am a tree, Fatimah is its branch, Ali is its flower, Hasan and Husain are its fruit and the lovers of the ‘people of the house’ are its leaves. All of them will be in Paradise. This is the truth, this is the truth.”
