Ali (رضّى الله عنه) gave his daughter, Umm Kulthoom (رضّى الله عنها), in marriage to Umar (رضّى الله عنه). This is a fact which most Shia lay persons have no idea about. It is also a fact that topples the entire paradigm of Shi’ism. Because of this, many Shia nowadays will say that this marriage between Umar (رضّى الله عنه) and Umm Kulthoom (رضّى الله عنها) is a fairy-tale.
However, the record of this marriage is in the Shia’s most reliable book of Hadith, Al-Kafi. There are at at least four separate Hadiths attributed to the Imams which affirm the marriage of Umm Kulthoom (رضّى الله عنها) to Umar (رضّى الله عنه). In fact, the 23rd chapter in the Book of Marriage (Kitab an-Nikah) in Furoo Al-Kafi is dedicated to the marriage of Umm Kulthoom (رضّى الله عنها) and it is called “Bab Tazwig Umm Kulthoom.” Two of the four Hadith are in this chapter, while the other two are found in a related chapter on ’iddah after marriage.
