Praise to Allah we have placed good article in refutation of shia claim that Umar hit Fatima.
In this article on one example we would show again how shia scholars tricked their readers in the attempt to misguide them.
Baqir Sharif al-Qurashi, shia writer in his book about Fatima, which was translated into english language said:
Ash-Shahristani mentioned from an-Nidham that Umar was shouting: ‘Set fire to her (Fatima) house with all those in it.’ There were no but Ali, Fatima, al-Hasan, and al-Husayn inside the house.
See: The Life of Fatima az-Zahra, chapter The attack on Imam Ali’s house
This claim in this or other form was repeated and recorded by other shia scholars and writers.
Let us see original book of Shahristani to see what important part was dropped of by them.
Scan from “Milal wa Nihal” 1/51, Darul Kutub al-Ilmiyah:
وزاد في الفرية فقال: إن عمر ضرب بطن فاطمة يوم البيعة حتى ألقت الجنين من بطنها وكان يصيح: أحرقوا دارها بمن فيها وما كان في الدار غير علي وفاطمة والحسن والحسين.
And he (Nadham) added to this FALSE CLAIM: Umar hit Fatima’s belly in the day of pledge in such way that embryo fell from her womb, and he was shouting: Set fire to her (Fatima) house with all those in it.’ There were no but Ali, Fatima, al-Hasan, and al-Husayn inside the house
1) First as it clear, in accordance to Shahristani this claim of Nadham was nothing but lie and false claim. But shia author didn’t mention this at all. That is same as if we would quote hadith from Mojam ar-Rijal of al-Khui, regarding which he said it is lie and fabrication, without mentioning his opinion. This is nothing but trick and clear lie.
2) Who is Nadham? That was Ibrahim ibn Sayyar ibn Hani, an-Nadham. Motazili, with many false beliefs. Shahristani quoted them one by one, and I would list some of them:
a) Nadham said: Allah have no power over evil deeds and sins, they are not under his authority.
b) He rejected idea that Allah has His own Will (Irada).
c) He rejected idea that Ijma of nation is a proof in any question.
d) He clearly supported shia idea of Imamate of Ali, and attacked companions.
