Two shia SAHIH narrations based on their Sanad and the saying of their scholars of Hadith which confirm the marriage of umm Kalthoum bint Ali RAA to the second Caliph, Ameer al Mumineen Umar bin al Khattab RAA.
حُمَيْدُ بْنُ زِيَادٍ عَنِ ابْنِ سَمَاعَةَ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ زِيَادٍ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ سِنَانٍ وَ مُعَاوِيَةَ بْنِ عَمَّارٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ( عليه السلام ) قَالَ سَأَلْتُهُ عَنِ الْمَرْأَةِ الْمُتَوَفَّى عَنْهَا زَوْجُهَا أَ تَعْتَدُّ فِي بَيْتِهَا أَوْ حَيْثُ شَاءَتْ قَالَ بَلْ حَيْثُ شَاءَتْ إِنَّ عَلِيّاً ( عليه السلام ) لَمَّا تُوُفِّيَ عُمَرُ أَتَى أُمَّ كُلْثُومٍ فَانْطَلَقَ بِهَا إِلَى بَيْتِهِ .

Hameed bin Ziad from Ibn Sama’ah, from Muhamad bin Ziad from Abdullah bin Sinan and Muawiyah bin Ammar from Abu Abdullah PBUH: I asked him about the woman whose husband is died, Does she spend her iddat Period in her house or wherever she wants? Imam replied: Wherever She wants, For Ali PBUH when Umar had died he came to his house and took umm Kalthoum to his house.

Now Fatwas by three shia alims: one By Sistani, one by hussain fadlullah and another By Al Khoe’i :
By Al khoe’i:
هل صحيح أن الخليفة الثاني قد تزوج من بنت الامام علي عليه السلام ؟
هكذا ورد في التاريخ والروايات .
Is it true that the second Khalif married the daughter of Imam Ali aleyhi salam ?
It’s reported like that in history and narrations.
After posting this and while checking the links it turns out The THUGS & COWARDLY Scholars of the twelvers had removed these two fatwas from their websites,
NOW Some stupid question about what is the ruling regarding those who hate Muhammad PBUH and his family.
But one of the brother already took a print-screen of that question. See below: 😛
Question: Is it Sahih (authentic) that the second caliph (Umar) married the daughter of Imaam Ali?
It was supposed to be question (85) but now it’s about Seeing Allah in Jannah or whatever… It Could Be that they changed the number But I think they removed it completely.
But our brother also printed the screen as well. 😛
This is the reason: why we always take a screen print for this type of fatwas.
Question: Is it Sahih (authentic) that Sayyidah Umm Kulthoom, peace be upon her, married Umar bin Al-Khattab or are these allegations?
Answer: That is what is mentioned in Sahih narrations.
Now let proceed further:
Al Sayyid Ali al Shahrastani in his book “Tazweej um Kaltoum” he states that of those scholars who admitted to this marriage was for example Al Sayyid al Murtada (436 died) In Al Shafi and Tanzeeh al Anbiya’a (Also look Bihar 42:107 – Al Sawarem al muhriqa 201,202 – Al Sirat al mustaqeem 3:130).
Also he says some of Kulayni’s Narrations in his Kafi admit to this and Al kufi’s (352 died) Istighatha 80 – 82 and in the Mustadraq 14:433,444 – Also al Qadi al nu’uman(363 died) says this in Sharh al Akhbar 2:507 – Al tusi (460 died) also in Tamheed al usool 386,387 7 Al Iqtisad Fima Yata’allaq bil I’itiqad 340,341 – Al Tabrasi in I’ilam al Wara 1:397 & Bihar 42:93 – Also Al Majlisi Admits to this in Mira’at al uqool 20:42 & Bihar 42:109…
Amongst many others he mentioned like Ibn Shahr’Ashoob in Al Manaqib 3:162 – Al Arbeeli in Kashf al ghummah 10 – Al muqada al Ardabelee in Hadiqat al Shia 277 – Al Qadi noor allah al testeri in in Majalis al Mumineen 76,82,85 – Sheikh Abbas al Qummi in Muntaha al Amal 1:186…
He said all of those Admitted to this marriage however most of them said Ali RAA was forced and threatened and thus he gave her (Umm kalthoum) in marriage.
Some shiite scholars however had stupider arguments than others so some claimed that Since Ali RAA was able to talk to Jinn and order them so he told one to turn into the shape of his daughter and he married a jinni to umar RAA, This was by al Qutb al rawandi (573 died) in al Kharaa’ej wal Jara’eh 2:825,827 – Also bihar al Anwar 42:88,106 & mi’ra’at al uqool 21:198.
Also Al Majdee in Ansab al Talebeen 17 – Mustadraq Safinatal bihar 2:121 – Madinat al Ma’ajiz 3:203 – Al Bayada’s Al Sirat al mustaqim 3:130.
other Shii scholars used a different excuse and said “She was not the daughter of Fatima but that of Umm Walad” this is in Mawalid al A’imah 15 – Noor al Absar 103 – Nihayat al irab 20:223.
Some said He did marry her but never entered inside her because he died before she was of age:
Al Nawbakhti said this in Al Bihar 42:91 and Manaqib Aal Abi Talib 3:89.
Al Shaykh Ja’afar al Naqdi went even further to say that there was a force field between them and whenever Umar RAA approached he hit it thus he was content with being her husband Anwar al alawiyah 435.
