أبى رحمه الله قال: حدثنى احمد بن ادريس قال: حدثنا احمد بن محمد ابن عيسى، عن احمد بن محمد بن أبى نصر، عن عبد الرحمان بن سالم، عن المفضل ابن عمر قال: قلت لابي عبد الله " ع " جعلت فداك من غسل فاطمة عليها السلام قال ذاك أمير المؤمنين " ع " قال فكأني استعظمت ذلك من قوله فقال كأنك ضقت مما اخبرتك به قلت قد كان ذلك جعلت فداك قال: لا تضيقن فانها صديقة لا يغسلها إلا صديق أما علمت ان مريم لم يغسلها إلا عيسى عليه السلام.

1. My father said, ‘Ahmad Bin Idrees narrated to me, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Ibn Isa, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Bin Abu Nasr, from Abdul Rahman Bin Salim, from Al Mufazzal Ibn Umar who said, ‘I said to Abu Abdullah (a.s.), ‘May I be sacrificed for you (a.s.)! Who washed Fatima (a.s.)’. He (a.s.) said: ‘That was Amir Al-Momineen (a.s.)’. He (the narrator) said, ‘I was aggrieved by that, from his (a.s.) words’. So he (a.s.) said: ‘It is as if you are constricted from what I (a.s.) have informed you with’. I said, ‘It was like that, may I be sacrificed for you (a.s.)’. He (a.s.) said: ‘Do not be constricted, for she (a.s.) was a Truthful, none could wash her (a.s.) except for a Truthful. But, do you know that Maryam (as), none washed her (a.s.) except for Isa (as)?’
