‘A’isha, the wife of Allaah’s Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam), said: The wives of Allaah’s Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) sent Fatima, the daughter of Allaah’s Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam), to Allaah’s Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam). She ouaht permission to get in as he had been lying with me in my mantle. He gave her permission and she said: Allaah’s Messenger, verily, your wives have sent me to you in order to ask you to observe equity in case of the daughter of Abu Quhafa. She (‘A’isha) said: I kept quiet. Thereupon Allaah’s Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said to her (Fatima): 0 daughter, don’t you love whom I love? She said: Yes, (I do). Thereupon he said: I love this one. Fatima then stood up as she heard this from Allaah’s Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) and went to the wives of Allatt’s Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) and informed them of what she had said to him and what Allaah’s messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) had said to her. Thereupon they said to her: We think that you have been of no avail to us. You may again go to Allaah’s Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) and tell him that his wives seek equity in case of the daughter of Abu Quhafa. Fitima said: By Allaah, I will never talk to him about this matter. ‘A’isha (further) reported: The wives of Allaah’s Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) then sent Zainab b. jahsh, the wife of Allaah’s Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam), and she was one who was somewhat equal in rank with me in the eyes of Allaah’s Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) and I have never seen a woman more advanced in religious piety than Zainab, more God-conscious, more truthful, more alive to the ties of blood, more generous and having more. sense of self-sacrifice in practical life and having more charitable disposition and thus more close to God, the Exalted, than her. She, however, lost temper very soon but was soon calm. Allaah’s Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) permitted her to enter as she (‘A’isha) was along with Allaah’s Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) in her mantle, in the same very state when Fatima had entered.She said: Allaah’s Messenger, your wives have sent me to you seeking equity in case of the daughter of Abu Quhafa.She then came to me and showed harshness to me and I was seeing the eyes of Allaah’s Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) whether he would permit me. Zainab went on until I came to know that Allaah’s Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) would not disapprove if I retorted. Then I exchanged hot words until I made her quiet. Thereupon Allaah’s Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) smiled and said: She is the daughter of Abu Bakr. This hadith has been narrated on the authority of Zuhri with the same chain of transmitters, but with a slight variation of wording.
