‘Abdullaah ibn ‘Umar (a Companion) narrated that the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, came to Faatimah and he found a curtain on her door, so he did not enter and he would rarely return from a journey without starting with visiting her. When ‘Ali came and saw her concerned, he asked her what the problem was. She replied, “The Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, came to my house but he did not enter.” ‘Ali went to him and said: “O Messenger of Allah, Faatimah is concerned because you came to her but did not enter the house.” So the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: “What do I have to do with this life and what do I have to do with its ornaments? I saw a colored striped curtain on her door [so I did not enter].” So ‘Ali went back to her and told her what he said. At this, she said: “Tell him to order me to dispense with it as he wishes.” So he went and said that the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: “Tell her to give it in charity to the children of so-and-so [a family that was in need].”

Ibn Hajar (a scholar) said: “Al-Muhallab and others said: “The Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, hated for his daughter what he hated for himself, that the good things would be their reward in this life only and not in the next. He did not intend that putting a curtain on the door is forbidden.”
