[Holy Qur'aan 33:53]
Narrated Uthman Ibn Umar from Yoonus Ibn Yazid from Al-Zahri from Sa’eed Ibn Mosayyib who said: When Aboo Bakr died, A'isha held a mourning gathering in which eulogies had been read for him, Umar was informed of it, so he forbid them [the mourners] from doing so. They refused, so he said to Hisham Ibn Al-Walid: "Bring out for me the daughter of Abi Qohafa (sister of Abi Bakr)!" Then he lashed her, and when the mourners heard this they escaped, and he said: "Do they want to punish Aboo Bakr by their weeping?" The Messenger of Allah (saw) said: "The dead man suffers when his family weep for him."
Narrated Younis from Ibn Wahab from Younis Ibn Yazid from Al-Zahri from Sa’eed Ibn Mosayyib who said: 'When Aboo Bakr died, A'isha held a mourning gathering for him in which eulogies had been read, Umar was informed of it, so he came to her door and forbade them from mourning on Aboo Bakr. They (the women) refused, so he (Umar) said to Hisham Ibn Al-Walid: "Enter and bring out for me the daughter of Abi Qohafa sister of Abi Bakr," when A'isha heard this she said to Hisham: "I forbid you from entering into my house!" Umar said to Hisham: "Enter, I allow you to do that!" So Hisham entered and brought out Umme Farwa sister of Abi Bakr to Umar, whereupon Umar started beating her with his whip for a while, when the mourners heard this they escaped.
The status of these five narrators in the books of Rijal:
4 - Ibn Shahab Al-Zahri
Muhammad Ibn Muslim Ibn Obaidallah Ibn Abdullah Ibn Shahab Ibn Zohra Ibn Kilaab Al-Qorashi Al-Zahri, Aboo Bakr, Al-Faqih 'Narrator of Hadeeth' Al-Hafiz 'Jurist': All agreed upon his superiority and Truthfulness narrated in the Saheeh Sittah.
... (after narrating this hadeeth) I say: "Daughter of Abi Qohafa is Umme Farwa sister of Abi Bakr, because Umar couldn’t rebuke A'isha due to fear and respect for her, so he punished sister of Aboo Bakr!"
2 - Ibn Oyaina
- What kind of respect did Umar exhibit when breaking in to the house of A'isha despite the fact this mob were prohibited from entering therein?
- What form of Sharia were Umar and his cohorts seeking to implement by breaking in to the house of A'isha frightening the women residing therein and whipping the daughter of Aboo Bakr and thus hurting and humiliating her?
- What kind of respect did Umar show when ordering Abbas to enter the home of Maymoona (r.a) who allowed her home to be used for a mourning gathering and requested her to bring out the women so they be punished?
