Abu Ja’far, Muhammad bin Ali (as), from Jabir bin Abdullah having said: ‘It was said, ‘O Rasool-Allah! You tend to kiss Fatima (as), and revere her, and be close to her, and deal with her with what you do not deal with any of your other daughters*?’ So he said: ‘Jibraeel came unto me with an apple from the apples of the Paradise. So I ate it, and it converted to the water in my back. Then I went to Khadeeja (as), so she was Blessed with Syeda Fatima. So I keep smelling the aroma of the Paradise from her’.
*Some suggest that “daughters” refer to step daughters.

‘Ayesha came over to Rasool-Allah (sawa) and he was kissing (his daughter Syeda) Fatima (as). So she said to him: ‘You seem to love her a lot, O Rasool-Allah?’ He said: ‘By Allah! If you knew my love for her, it would increase your love for her.
When I ascended to the fourth sky, Jibraeel called the call for Prayer (Azan) and Mikaeel for establishing of it (Iqama), then said to me: ‘O Muhammad, proceed (to lead the Prayer)’. So I said: ‘I proceed, and you are in my presence, O Jibraeel?’ He said: ‘Yes! Allah Preferred His Prophets (as) and the Rasools (as) over the Angels of Proximity, and Preferred you in particular’. So I approached, and Prayed with the inhabitants of the fourth sky. Then I turned to my right, and there I was with Ibrahim (as) in a Garden from the Gardens of the Paradise, and a group of the Angels had surrounded him.
Then I went to the fifth sky, and from it to the sixth. So, there was a Call: ‘O Muhammad! The best of the fathers is your father Ibrahim (as), and the best of the brothers is your brother Ali (as)’.
So when I went to the Veils, Jibraeel grabbed my hand and entered me into the Paradise. So there I was, by a tree whose roots were of Light, two Angels folding garments and ornaments. So I said: ‘My beloved Jibraeel! For whom is this tree?’ So he said: ‘This is for your brother Ali bin Abu Talib (as), and these are two Angels folding for him, the garments and the ornaments up to the Day of Judgement’.
Then I proceeded in front of me, so there I was by dates softer than the butter, and more aromatic in fragrance than musk, and sweeter than the honey. So I took a date and ate it. So the date transformed into a Gift within me. So when I descended to the earth, Khadeeja (as) was Blessed with Fatima (as). Thus, Fatima (as) is a human Hourie. So when I desire for the Paradise, I smell the fragrance of Fatima (as)’.

So and so, daughter of so and so had owned it, so she displayed it and I took something from her display’.
The Umm Ayman (ra) wept, so Rasool-Allah said to her: ‘What make you weep?’ So she said, ‘Fatima got her married, so she (the daughter of so and so) did not display (gift) upon her anything’.
So Rasool-Allah (sawa) said to her: ‘Do not weep! By the One Who Sent me with the Truth as a Giver of Good News and a Warner, the possession of Fatima (as) are witnessed by Jibraeel, and Mikaeel, and Israfeel among a thousand from the Angels. And Allah has Commanded Tooba, so it displayed to them from its garments, and its silk, and its brocade, and its gems, and its emeralds, and its sapphires, and its perfumes. So they took from it to the extent that they did not know what to do with it. And Allah has Made Tooba to be in the dowry of Fatima (as), and it is in the house of Ali bin Abu Talib (as)’.

The prophet (sawa) was kissing Fatima (as) frequently, and for this reason Aisha reproached him for doing so. She said: “O Messenger of Allah (sawa) you are kissing her too much!” He replied her: “Woe to you, when I was in ascension to the heavens, Gabriel passed me by the Tooba tree. Then he gave me one of its fruits and I ate it. Then Allah made that into my seed. Once I landed on earth, I approached Khadeeja (as) and she became pregnant with Fatima (as). Since then, whenever I kiss Fatima, I smell the tree of Tooba from her.

To which he (sawa) replied: when I was in ascension to heaven Gabriel finished the way to the Tooba tree. He picked out a fruit from the tree, rubbed it with his fingers and fed me the fruit. Then he wiped his hand between my shoulders and said: O Mohammed Allah the Blissful and Almighty bodes you of Fatima from Khadeeja bint Khuwailed (as). Once I landed on earth and we did what we did, Khadeeja (as) got pregnant with Fatima (as) and whenever I long for paradise I bring her close to me and smell the perfume of heaven because she is a Human Houri.
