During the incident of Hudaybiyyah, when Prophet Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, made a treaty between himself and the people of Makkah that he, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, would enter it the next year for three days, the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, went the next year to perform `Umrah (minor pilgrimage). When he, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, entered Makkah and stayed his due time, the people of Makkah went to `Ali and said: “Tell your companion to leave us, for he has stayed his due time.” At that, the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, left, and was followed by the daughter of Hamzah who was calling him, “O uncle, O uncle!”`Ali ibn Abu Taalib received her and took her by her hand and said to Faatimah (his wife and the Prophet’s daughter), “Take your uncle’s daughter.” `Ali said: “When we reached Madinah, myself, Ja`far and Zayd ibn Haarithah disputed regarding her.” `Ali continued,“Ja`far’s argument was, ‘She is my cousin, and her maternal aunt is my wife.’ Meaning, Asmaa’ bint `Umays; Zayd said: ‘She is my niece,’and I said: ‘I am the one who took her, and she is my cousin, and I am married to the daughter of the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, and she is most deserving of caring for her.’ The result was that the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, ruled that she be given to her maternal aunt3 , and said: ‘The maternal aunt has the status of the mother.’ ”Then he, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: “As for you, O Ja`far, you are the most similar to me in appearance and manners; as for you O `Ali, you are from me, and I am from you, and as for you O Zayd, you are our [my] brother and freed slave.”

Ibn Hajar said: “Thus, the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam,soothed all their hearts, even if he, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, ruled in favor of Ja`far in the end, but he clarified the reasoning behind this ruling
