We find Sheikh Sudooq mentioning a narration, a part of which says

والآية الخامسة قول الله عز وجل: (وآت ذا القربى حقه) (٢) خصوصية خصهم الله العزيز الجبار بها، واصطفاهم على الأمة، فلما نزلت هذه الآية على رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله) قال: ادعوا لي فاطمة. فدعيت له، فقال: يا فاطمة قالت: لبيك يا رسول الله. فقال (صلى الله عليه وآله): هذه فدك، هي مما لم يوجف عليه بخيل ولا ركاب، وهي لي خاصة دون المسلمين، وقد جعلتها لك لما أمرني الله به، فخذيها لك ولولدك، فهذه الخامسة.

The fifth verse regarding the choice is the Honorable the Exalted God’s words,

And render to the kindred their due rights…’

[bani israeel, 26]

The Honorable the Omnipotent has made them especial by this characteristic and has chosen them over the nation. When this verse was revealed to the Prophet (s), he summoned his daughter (the Blessed Lady) Fatima (s). Fatima (s) said, “O Prophet of God! Yes.” The Prophet (s) said,

“Fadak is one of the territories that we did not exhaust our horses or camels to seize. Therefore, it is exclusively mine and not the Muslims Now, I will donate it to you and your offspring as a gift according to God’s instructions.” This was the fifth.
