Those who think that there is no love in Islam they are wrong. the biggest love story of all the time belongs to Islam ,love story of a 56 year , stinky old man to a 6 year old baby girl !!! That left a legacy and the pattern from a perfect role model for generations to come.
Umar Ibn al Khattab( عمر بن الخطاب ) the famous second Caliph after Muhammad was about 50 years old when he fell in love with ” Umme Kulthum” ( أم كلثوم ) who was about 5/6 years old ,This child was his most favorite wife (just like Mohammad and Ayesha) .
According to many Ahadith , and historical evidence scholars believe that she was the daughter of Ali and Fatima. [There are some scholars who claim that Umme Kulthum was the posthumous daughter of Abu Bakar and Habiba. Abu Bakar died (13 A.H.) a few months before Umme Kulthum was born,if that claim is correct it makes her the half sister of Aisha ]
Here are the details of the story:
=()Asad al Ghaybah ( الغيبة أسد ) Volume 5 page 367:
“Abu Umar narrates on the authority of Zubayr Bakri, ‘Umar asked for the hand of Ali’s daughter, who replied that she was too young. ‘Umar asked twice more. ‘Ali said ‘I shall send the girl to you, if you like her than say ‘I accept”. ‘Ali then sent the girl with a cloth and told her to say [to ‘Umar] ‘This is the scarf that I was talking about’. She conveyed these words to ‘Umar, who said ‘Tell your father that I accept’. Umar then touched the girl’s calf. She exclaimed ‘You have done this to me? If it hadn’t been for the fact that you are Khalifa of the Muslims I would have broken your nose’. The girl went home and repeated the episode to her father, stating ‘You sent me to a foul man’, with that ‘Ali said ‘He is your husband’.”
=() Al Isaba Volume 4 page 492 reports the text similarly with difference being the comment of Umme Kalthum (as) namely:
“If it hadn’t been the fact that you were Khalifa of the Muslims I would have spat in your face”.
=() Al Istiab Volume 4 page 467:
“‘Umar asked Ali for the hand of Umme Kalthum. ‘Ali replied that she was too young. ‘Umar said ‘Marry her to me and do as I say for I wish to attain to that position which no one else has attained. ‘Ali then said, ‘I shall send Umme Kalthum to you. If you like her then I shall marry her to you.’ ‘Ali then sent the girl with a cloth and told her to say [to ‘Umar] ‘This is the scarf that I was talking about’. She conveyed these words to Umar, who said ‘Tell your father that I accept’. Umar then touched the girl’s calf. She exclaimed, ‘You have done this to me? If it had not been the fact that you were Khalifa of the Muslims I would have broken your nose’. The girl went home and repeated the episode to her father, stating ‘You sent me to a foul man’, with that ‘Ali said ‘He is your husband’. Umar then attended a gathering of the Muhajireen and said ‘Congratulate me’. They said ‘Why?’ He said ‘I have married Umme Kalthum binte ‘Ali ‘ . ”
