Many deny the incidents of the door, claiming that Mola Ali (as) would not stay quiet and allow this to happen.

In Kitab Sulaym bin Qays Al-Hilali, we find Imam Ali (as) was on the brink of killing the man responisble – but remembered the promise of the Prophet (sawa).

“Ali (as) rushed, grabbed by the collar of his neck and pushed him away and he (Umar) fell down and hurt his neck and nose. Ali (as) intended to kill him, then he remembered what the Holy Prophet (sawa) had said, and he said: “By Him, who gave Muhammad the status of Prophethood, O son of Sahak, if the Book from Allah had not been revealed and if the Holy Prophet (sawa) had not taken a promise from me before, then you would have known that you could have never entered my house.”

Note: Kitab Sulaym is one of the earliest (if not earliest) books of hadith that was compiled by the Muslims. Although there are doubts if the current copies available to us today is the same as what was initially compiled by Sulaym, it is one of the only books that our Imams (as) have apparently spoken about by name. It is reported that Imam Ja’far Al Sadiq (a.s) said: “If anyone from our Shia and devotees does not have the book of Sulaym ibn Qays al Hilali, then he does not have any of our things, and he does not know any of our matters. This is the first book of Shia and is one of the secrets of Ale-Muhammad (a.s)”
