"Certainly, after the demise of the Messenger of Allah (saws), when they were extracting allegiance for Abu Bakr, Ali (as) and Zubair were with Fatemah (sa), the daughter of the Messenger of Allah (saws), consulting her and taking her view on the issue. The moment Umar heard of this, immediately he left for the house of Fatemah (sa) and said, "O daughter of Allah's Messenger (saws) By Allah! None is dearer to me than your father and none after him is more important for me than you. But by Allah! This love and affection will not stop me from ordering to set ablaze your house due to these persons who have gathered in it." As soon as Umar left, Fatemah (sa) came to Ali (as) and Zubair and said, "Do you know what Umar said to me? He swore by Allah that if you don't come out of the house, he will set my house on fire and by Allah, he will certainly do it."

Come out, otherwise I will burn down the house along with its inmates." Somebody asked, "O Aba Hafs! Are you aware that Fatemah (sa) is present in this house?" Umar shot back, "(I dont care) even if Fatemah (sa) is present in the house!"

Those three things that I committed and wished I had not committed them were as follows:
 
How I wish I had not worn the leash of caliphate!
 
How I wish I had not raided the house of Fatemah (sa) and ordered to attack its inmates, even if they had declared a war against me!"

And I am as much insistent, firm and steadfast on this task as your father was on the religion which he had brought'

I dont regret anything from my life but for three acts that I committed. How I wished I had not committed them. How I wish I had left alone the house of Ali (as) even if they had declared a war against me'

'When Ali (as) declined paying allegiance to Abu Bakr and opted for isolation in his house, Abu Bakr dispatched Umar to Ali (as) with the command, Present Ali before me in the worst possible manner. When Umar came to Ali (as), there was a heated exchange of words between the two. Ali (as) remarked, O Umar! Carry on your shoulders half of which is your wealth. By Allah Nothing has made you greedy for the government and rule of Abu Bakr except for the fact that tomorrow, he will hand it over to you

IBN ABI AL-HADEED Ibn Abi al-Hadeed Motazeli in his commentary on the Nahjul Balaagha, v 20, pg 16,17, under the chapter Narration of Abu al-Maali al-Juwainis objections concerning the affairs of the companions and their refutation, while narrating from Abu al-Maali al-Juwaini writes : 
 
The house of Fatemah (sa) was attacked and its sanctity wrecked for the sake of the PROTECTION of the ISLAMIC SYSTEM and for preventing dissension and factionalism amongst the Muslims because the Muslims of that time had turned away from religion and stopped obeying (those in authority). In response, it can be said that: Use the same argument when in the Battle of Jamal, Ayeshas she camel was attacked (because she took up arms against the official caliph of the Muslims) so that the rope of obedience is not broken, Muslim unity is not done away with and the blood of the Muslims (martyrs) is not squandered" So if it permissible to attack the house of Fatemah (sa) for an issue that has not yet occurred, it is definitely allowable to attack the she camel of Ayesha for a matter that has taken place by all means

Have you come to burn our house down?' Umar replied, Yes, I will relent only if those who are within the house pay allegiance to Abu Bakr like the Ummah has done'

IBN QUTAYBAH DAINOORI Abu Muhammad Abdullah Ibn Muslim Ibn Qutaybah Dainoori (expired 276 AH) in his book, 'Al-Imaamah wa al-Siyaasah', 3rd edition, Egypt, circa 1382 AH, (two volumes in a single binding), v 1, pg 13, after mentioning the chain of narrators, writes :
 
"..After some time had passed, Umar said to Abu Bakr, "Come let us go to Fatemah (sa) as we have angered her. Agreeing to the suggestion, both went to the house of Fatemah (sa), who refused them leave to enter. Helplessly, they went to Ali (as), talked with him so that he may request Fatemah (sa) on their behalf to meet them. Finally, when these two sat in front of Fatemah (sa), she turned her face away from these two and sat facing the wall. At this moment, both of them greeted (salaam) Fatemah (sa) but she refused to reply. Thus, Abu Bakr initiated the conversation with her and said, 'O beloved of Allah's Messenger (saws) Have we angered you concerning the inheritance of the Messenger of Allah (saws) and that of your husband?' Fatemah (sa) replied, 'What's the matter with you? Your family members inherit from you while we cannot inherit from Muhammad (saws) ?" Thereafter Fatemah (sa) said, 'If I cite a tradition from the Messenger of Allah (saws), will you accept and believe in it?" Umar and Abu Bakr replied, 'Yes.' Fatemah (sa) informed, "Take oath on Allah and state, did you not hear the Messenger of Allah (saws) say, 'Fatemah's (sa) satisfaction is my satisfaction and Fatemah's (s wrath is my wrath. Thus, whosoever loves my daughter Fatemah (sa), loves me and whoever makes her happy has made me happy. Whoever makes Fatemah (sa) angry has made me angry.' Both of them said, 'Yes, of course, we have indeed heard this from the Messenger of Allah (saws). Fatemah (sa) retorted, 'Then, verily, I hold Allah and the angels as witnesses that you two have angered me and have not been the cause of joy for me. Whenever I meet the Messenger of Allah (saws), I will complain to him about you two...' Hearing this, Abu Bakr started crying, while Fatemah (sa) was saying, "By Allah! I curse you (Abu Bakr) after every prayer that I perform."
