20. عن المسور بن مخرمة: رضي الله عنه: أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: فاطمة بضعة مني، فمن أغضبها أغضبني.

Miswar bin Makhramah (ra) narrates that the Messenger of Allah (saw) said, “Fatimah is a part of me. Therefore, whosoever angers her angers me.”

21. عن محمد بن علي قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: إنما فاطمة بضعة مني، فمن أغضبها أغضبني.

Muhammad bin Ali narrates that the Messenger of Allah (saw) said, “Indeed Fatimah is a part of me. Hence, whosoever angers her angers me.”

22. عن علي رضي الله عنه أنه كان عند رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم، فقال: أي شيء خير للمرأة؟ فسكتوا، فلما رجعت قلت لفاطمة: أي شيء خير للنساء؟ قالت ألا يراهن الرجال. فذكرت ذلك للنبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فقال: إنما فاطمة بضعة مني.

Ali (as) narrates, “He was present in the company of the Messenger of Allah (saw) when the Holy Prophet (saw) asked, ‘What is best for a woman’ on this the companions remained quiet. When I returned home I asked Fatimah, ‘Tell me what is best for a woman?’ Fatimah (sa) replied, ‘It is best for a woman that no men (i.e. outside of one’s immediate family: brothers, father, uncle, husband, sons) see her.’ I mentioned this to the Holy Prophet (saw) and he (saw) said, ‘Indeed Fatimah is a part of me.’”
