Narrated Aisha

The wives of Allah's Apostle (peace be upon him) sent Fatimah, the daughter of Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him), to Allah's Apostle (peace be upon him). She sought permission to come in as he had been lying with me in my mantle. He gave her permission and she said: Allah's Messenger, verily your wives have sent me to you in order to ask you to observe equity in the case of the daughter of AbuQuhafah. She (Aisha) said: I kept quiet. Thereupon Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) said to her (Fatimah): O daughter, don't you love whom I love? She said: Yes, (I do). Thereupon he said: I love this one. Fatimah then stood up as she heard this from Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) and went to the wives of Allah's Apostle (peace be upon him). She informed them of what she had said to him and what Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) 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 Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) and tell him that his wives seek equity in the case of the daughter of AbuQuhafah. Fatimah said: By Allah, I shall never talk to him about this matter. Aisha (further) reported: The wives of Allah's Apostle (peace be upon him) then sent Zaynab bint Jahsh, the wife of Allah's Apostle (peace be upon him), and she was one who was somewhat equal in rank with me in the eyes of Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him). I have never seen a woman more advanced in religious piety than Zaynab, more God-conscious, more truthful, more alive to the ties of blood, more generous, having more sense of self-sacrifice in practical life and having a more charitable disposition and thus being closer to God, the Exalted. She, however, lost her temper very easily but was soon calm. Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) permitted her to enter as she (Aisha) was there with Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) in her mantle, in the same very state as when Fatimah had entered. She said: Allah's Messenger, your wives have sent me to you, seeking equity in the case of the daughter of AbuQuhafah. She then came to me and showed harshness to me I looked at the eyes of Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) to see if he would permit me (to reply). Zaynab continued until I realized that Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) would not disapprove if I retorted. Then I exchanged hot words until I made her quiet. Thereupon Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) smiled and said: She is the daughter of AbuBakr. This hadith has been narrated on the authority of Zuhri with the same chain of transmitters, but with a slight variation of wording.
