`Ali (ra) tells his children to call `Umar (ra) their “Uncle”


al-Salamu `Aleykum,

in al-Sunan al-Kubra we read:

أبو الحسين بن بشران ، أنبأ دعلج بن أحمد ، ثنا موسى بن هارون ، ثنا سفيان بن وكيع بن الجراح ، أنبأ روح بن عبادة ، ثنا ابن جريج ، أخبرني ابن أبي مليكة ، أخبرني حسن بن حسن ، عن أبيه : أن عمر بن الخطاب – رضي الله عنه – خطب إلى علي – رضي الله عنه – أم كلثوم ، فقال له علي – رضي الله عنه: إنها تصغر عن ذلك ، فقال عمر : سمعت رسول الله – صلى الله عليه وسلم – يقول: كل سبب ونسب منقطع يوم القيامة إلا سببي ونسبي ، فأحببت أن يكون لي من رسول الله – صلى الله عليه وسلم – سبب ونسب ، فقال علي – رضي الله عنه – لحسن وحسين : زوجا عمكما ، فقالا: هي امرأة من النساء تختار لنفسها ، فقام علي – رضي الله عنه – مغضبا ، فأمسك الحسن – رضي الله عنه – بثوبه وقال: لا صبر على هجرانك يا أبتاه ، قال: فزوجاه .

[…al-Hasan bin al-Hasan bin `Ali bin abi Talib narrated: from his father al-Hasan ibn `Ali: that `Umar ibn al-Khattab (ra) asked `Ali (ra) for the hand of Umm Kulthoum, so `Ali (ra) said: “She is too young for this.” so `Umar (ra) said: I heard the messenger of Allah say: “every cause and relation will be cut on the day of judgement except for my cause and relation” So I liked to have a relation to the Prophet (SAWS). So `Ali (ra) said to Hasan and Husayn: “Get your uncle married.” they said (jokingly): “She is a woman from among the women now, she can pick for herself.” so `Ali (ra) stood up angrily (and wanted to leave) but al-Hasan (ra) grabbed his clothes and said: “O dear father, we cannot bear your anger.” so they married her to him.]
