Hazrat 'Ali (radhiyallahu 'anhu) (21)

On the occasion of Khaibar, after Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) handed the banner of Islam to Hazrat Ali (radhiyallahu anhu), Hazrat Ali (radhiyallahu anhu) led the army of the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu anhu) to the fortress of Qamoos.

In the 7th year after hijrah, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) marched against the Jews of Khaibar.

When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) arrived in Khaibar, the Jews immediately sought refuge within their various fortresses in Khaibar. The first fortress which the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) conquered was the Fortress of Naa‘im. Thereafter, the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) came to the Fortress of Qamoos, which was one of the strongest fortresses in Khaibar, and laid siege to it.

On the occasion of the Battle of Ahzaab (also known as the Battle of Khandaq – the Trench), a group of disbelievers managed to cross over a narrow portion of the trench with their horses. Observing this, a group of Muslims, including Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), came forward to combat these disbelievers and defend Madinah Munawwarah.

Among this group of disbelievers was the famous warrior of Makkah, ‘Amr bin ‘Abd-e-Wudd. He had been injured during the Battle of Badr, and hence he was unable to participate in the Battle of Uhud. Thus, on this occasion, he came forward in order to boast and demonstrate his bravery and strength.

Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was a brave warrior who fought many battles for the cause of Islam. Allah Ta‘ala had blessed him with great strength and prowess in battle on account of which he was able to easily defeat the enemy.

On the occasion of the Battle of Tabook, when Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was departing from Madinah Munawwarah, he said to Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), “It is necessary for either me to remain in Madinah Munawwarah, or for you to remain behind (to oversee the affairs of Madinah Munawwarah while the army is away).”

Accordingly, on the instruction of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) did not go out with the army, but remained in Madinah Munawwarah.

At the time of the nikaah of Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) to Hazrat Faatimah (radhiyallahu ‘anha), Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) instructed Hazrat Faatimah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) to fulfill the responsibilities within the home, and instructed Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) to fulfill the responsibilities out of the home. (Musannaf Ibni Abi Shaibah #29677)

Thus, after her nikaah, Hazrat Faatimah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) would always attend to all the domestic responsibilities and household chores herself. She would grind the flour and bake the bread herself. Likewise, she would carry the water skin and fetch water for the house, and she would also sweep the house herself. As a result, her hands developed calluses from rolling the grind stone, her chest developed marks from carrying the water skin, and her clothes would become dusty due to the sweeping.

After the marriage of Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and Hazrat Faatimah (radhiyallahu ‘anha), Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said to Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), “O ‘Ali! The groom should host a waleemah.” Hearing this, Hazrat Sa’d (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) immediately gave Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) a sheep to prepare for the waleemah, as Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) did not possess any wealth.

Other Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) of the Ansaar also gathered some maize and gave it to Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) to prepare for his waleemah.

According to the narration of Hazrat Jaabir (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) also ate dates and raisins at the waleemah of Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu).

(Majma‘uz Zawaa’id #15214 and 15215)

After Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) performed the nikaah of Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) to Hazrat Faatimah (radhiyallahu ‘anha), Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) told Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and Hazrat Faatimah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) to both wait for him at their home.

The nikaah of Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and Hazrat Faatimah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) occurred in the second year after Hijrah.

Regarding this nikaah, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) had mentioned, “Indeed Allah Ta‘ala had instructed me to marry Hazrat Faatimah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) to Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu).”

When Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) proposed for Hazrat Faatimah (radhiyallahu ‘anha), then he did so via his daughter, Hazrat ‘Aa’ishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha). Likewise, when Hazrat ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) proposed for Hazrat Faatimah (radhiyallahu ‘anha), he sent the proposal via his daughter, Hazrat Hafsah (radhiyallahu ‘anha).

As for Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), then when he intended to propose for Hazrat Faatimah (radhiyallahu ‘anha), he did not have a close female relative living in the home of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) via whom he could send his proposal. Hence, he personally came to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) to propose for Hazrat Faatimah (radhiyallahu ‘anha).
