Who killed Janabe Mohsin ibne Ali (a.s.)?

Aba Abdillah (a.s.) said: Janabe Fatima (a.s.) died on the 3rd of Jamadi al-Saani, in 11 AH. The reason for her demise was that Qunfudh, the slave of Umar, struck her with the handle of his sword – as per Umar’s order. So (as a cause) Mohsin (a.s.) was miscarried, and Fatemah (a.s.) became extremely sick. She did not allow anyone from those who hurt her to enter upon her. The two men (who hurt her) – who were the companions of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) – asked Ameer al-Momineen, Imam Ali (a.s.) to intercede on their behalf to her (a.s.), so he (a.s.) asked her (a.s.). When they (the ones who hurt her) entered upon her (a.s.), they said to her (audaciously): “How are you, O daughter of the Prophet?” She (a.s.) replied: “Well, Behamdil laah.” Then she (a.s.) said: “Have you not heard the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) say: “Fatemah is a part of me, so whoever hurts her has indeed hurt me, and whoever hurts me has indeed hurt Allah?” They replied: “Yes (we have heard it).” She said: “By Allah, you have both hurt me!”
He (Imam al-Sadiq (a.s.)) said: “So they left her (a.s.) while she was furious with them.”

(Behaar al-Anwaar, vol. 43, pp. 170-171, Hadith #11)

Unquestionably, the curse of Allah is upon the oppressors.

(Surah 11, Ayat 18)

Masjid-e-Quba

Shaykh Tabarsi and Ibn Shahr Ashob have narrated that three months after the allegiance of Aqbah, the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) fled to Madinah, which he  entered on Monday, the twelfth of Rabiul Awwal. Before his arrival, the Ansaris, used to go out everyday and gaze on the road in expectation of his arrival. The day he came, a party had been out with this view, most of whom, after waiting some time in vain returned home. At length he arrived at the site of the Masjid Shajarah, and inquired the way from the tribe of Bani Amr bin Auf and followed that road. A Jew, from the walls of his fort, saw three riders going in the direction of Bani Amr, and shouted, “O you Muslims, the man you desire has come, bringing great fortunes to you.” This announcement was echoed through Madinah, and men, women and children, filled with joy, ran out to meet the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.), who, by divine direction, proceeded to Quba, where he dismounted and was soon surrounded by the tribe of Bani Amr bin Auf. He became the guest of Kulsum, a worthy man. The tribe of Aws all met him, but as the fire of war and carnage still blazed between them and the Khazraj, the latter tribe, through fear, were to a man prevented from meeting him. As night came on, Abu Bakr left the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) and entered the city, but he remained at Quba, in the house of Kulsum. After the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) had performed evening and night prayers, Asad bin Zurarah, clad in armor, came in, and excused himself for not appearing sooner to pay his respects, on account of the hostility raging between his tribe and that of Aws. The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) then addressed the chiefs of Aws tribe, inquiring who of them would guarantee Asad’s safety. They replied, “O Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.a.), our own safety is in your keeping, do you then be his security.”
