Objection 5: If Fatima (s) was attacked why Ali Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã did not defend her? 


One who has raised the above doubt and said: Why Ali Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã did not stage an uprising? Or how his modesty permitted him to watch such a treatment being meted out to his wife; should reply to the same objection regarding Prophet Lut Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã:
The wife of Prophet Lut Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã was a disbeliever, the community of Lut Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã was sinful; the disbelievers forced themselves into the house of Lut Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã and saw handsome youths there. They expressed their satantic desires with regard to those youths. Prophet Lut Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã said: Fear Allah; if you refrain from this vile deed, I will marry my daughters to you.
Now, a number of questions arise at this point, which the doubt raisers should reply:
Why Prophet Lut Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã was not ashamed of the evil behavior of his disbelieving community, why he did not take to arms and attack them? On the contrary, he suggested to them that he was ready to give his daughters in marriage to them. Can – God forbid – Prophet Lut Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã be blamed from shamelessness?
Pay attention to the translation of the verse of Quran in this regard:
وَلَمَّا جَاءتْ رُسُلُنَا لُوطًا سِيءَ بِهِمْ وَضَاقَ بِهِمْ ذَرْعًا وَقَالَ هَـذَا يَوْمٌ عَصِيبٌ {77} وَجَاءهُ قَوْمُهُ يُهْرَعُونَ إِلَيْهِ وَمِن قَبْلُ كَانُواْ يَعْمَلُونَ السَّيِّئَاتِ قَالَ يَا قَوْمِ هَـؤُلاء بَنَاتِي هُنَّ أَطْهَرُ لَكُمْ فَاتَّقُواْ اللّهَ
“And when Our messengers came to Lut, he was grieved for them, and he lacked strength to protect them, and said: This is a hard day. And his people came to him, (as if) rushed on towards him, and already they did evil deeds. He said: O my people! these are my daughters- they are purer for you, so guard against (the punishment of) Allah…” (Surah Hud 77-78)
If not staging an uprising by Amirul Momineen Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã is an occasion for some questions, why with regard to not staging an uprising by the Holy Prophet (s) inMecca for thirteen years is not having any objection?
Did the Messenger of Allah (s) not witness tortures and unlimited oppressions on Muslims in Mecca? Amirul Momineen Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã, by this same argument did not show any reaction that the Messenger of Allah (s) at the time of killing of Sumayyah, mother of Ammar Yasir at the hands of the idolaters and his confrontation with them did not show any reaction.
Ibne Hajar Asqalani has written in Isabah:
Sumayyah binte Khabbat…mother of Ammar Yasir is the seventh to embrace Islam. Abu Jahl harassed her and stabbed her in the lower abdomen with a spear till she achieved martyrdom. She was the first female martyr in Islam and since she had embraced Islam and did not give it up, the family of Bani Mughira tortured and harassed her till she was martyred. The Messenger of Allah (s) witnessed the scene of torture of Ammar and his parents in Mecca and said: O family of Yasir, be patient, as Paradise is promised to you.[1]
Since the Messenger of Allah (s) was seeing that idolaters like Abu Jahl were harassing Muslim ladies, he did not display any reaction to it and also ordered them to be absolute patient in all this.
Was the Messenger of Allah (s) not the most modest and valiant person of the world? Thus, why he did not defend the Muslim ladies? Why he did not take up the sword to strike off the head of Abu Jahl?
Whatever replies the Wahabis give with regard to the absence of staging uprising by the Holy Prophet (s), we will give the same reply to the topic of Amirul Momineen Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã not staging an uprising.


Umme Jamil was well known for her wantonness and was the target of accusations by one and all; and that Mughira bin Shoba had committed fornication with her was a well known historical fact.
Among the instances about which the Wahabi objection makers should reply is that:
On the basis of Wahabis claims, Umme Kulthum, daughter of Amirul Momineen Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã was the wife of Umar. If we believe that this was nothing more than fiction, and the fact is something else; and that except casting numerous doubts on its fabricators it will achieve nothing; that if Allah wills we would also reply to the continuation of this objection – but in case we accept the supposition, the same objection is applicable to why Umar did not defend his wife, Umme Kulthum, which the Wahabis should reply?
The matter was that Mughira bin Shoba committed fornication with Umme Jamil and three persons testified as eye-witnesses and if the fourth testimony had been obtained, Mughira would have become eligible for penalty of fornication. During the journey of Hajj, Umar asked Mughira about Umme Jamil, who at that time was his partner in fornication: Are you familiar with her? Mughira with all impudence compared Umme Jamil to Umme Kulthum. And said: Yes, she is Umme Kulthum, your wife. In fact Mughira was extremely insulting to the wife of Umar in this reply and he made allegation of fornication on Umme Kulthum. However Umar did not display any shame at this and he did not show any reaction and defense.
Ibne Khallikan in Wafayatul Ayan and Abul Faraj Isfahani in Aghani have written that:
During Hajj, Umme Jamil (about whom three persons testified that Mughira has committed fornication with her and because the testimony of the fourth person could not be obtained, she was saved from the penalty of fornication) was in the company of Umar and Mughira was also present in Mecca at that time. Umar asked Mughira: Do you know who this woman is? Mughira replied: Yes, this is Umme Kulthum, the daughter of Ali. Umar said: Are you pretending to be ignorant? By Allah, I think that Abu Bakra didn’t lie about you and whenever I see you, I fear that a stone will drop on my head from the sky.[2]
It was when Mughira bin Shoba was an old friend and an official of Umar and was under his control at that time, but despite that Umar did not argue with him at all.
Now, with numerous contradictions, which exist on this occasion, whatever justification Wahabis offer, we will give the same reply to the absence of defense of Amirul Momineen Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã for his wife.
Wahabis should also reply to this subject:
When the companions of the Messenger of Allah (s) attacked the house of Uthman and cut off the fingers of his wife, Uthman did not defend his wife.
Whatever justification Wahabis offer here, we will give the same reply to this matter.
Tabari has written in his history:
Sawdan bin Humran came forward to attack Uthman, Naila binte Farafisa (Uthman’s wife) threw herself upon him. Sawdan took the sword and cut off her fingers and then hit at the teeth of Uthman’s wife and said: What a great bodyguard he is having! Then he hit Uthman and killed him.[3]
Ibne Athir has mentioned the same point in his Al-Kamil fit Tarikh[4] and Ibne Kathir Damishqi Wahabi in Al-Bidaya wan Nihaya.[5]
Why Uthman did not defend his wife when he was a man, having modesty and he should have defended his wife? Thus, why did he not show any reaction when he witnessed companions of the Messenger of Allah (s) insulting his wife and confronting her?
Amirul Momineen Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã was the most valiant person of his time, there is no doubt that he was so brave and daring that his name deprived Arab stalwarts of their sleep; so much so that Umar bin Khattab said:
By Allah, if the sword of Ali Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã had not been there, the foundation of Islam would not have become stable.[6]
So much so that when all the unfaithful companions of the Messenger of Allah (s) during the Battle of Uhad and Hunain deserted the Prophet and fled from the battlefield, Imam Ali Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã circled the Messenger of Allah (s) like a moth going around the flame, and he defended him, but why Imam Ali Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã did not participate in any of the battles of the Caliphs?
One, who during the time of the Messenger of Allah (s) had actively participated in all the battles of Muslims against infidels, Jews…and was at the forefront bearing the standard of Islam before all the stalwarts and crushed one enemy warrior after another, why he was not present in any of the battles during the time of Caliphs?
Had he lost his valor, or he did not regard fighting at the side of the Caliphs as Jihad? Or the Caliphs opposed the practice of the Messenger of Allah (s) did not choose to take his help?
With attention to the references and sources of the first part of the book in proving oppression and martyrdom of Lady Zahra (s) and also rational and polemical replies, which were given to reply to this objection, and supposing we accept that Amirul Momineen Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã did not defend his wife, does this statement imply that he overlooked oppression of others and was satisfied with it?
