Some Research With Sunni References

Umar Ibn al-Khattab came to the house of Ali. Talha and Zubair and
some of the immigrants were also in the house. Umar cried out:
"By God, either you come out to render the oath of allegiance, or
I will set the house on fire."
al-Zubair came out with his sword
drawn. As he stumbled (upon something), the sword fell from his hand
so they jumped over him and seized him."

Sunni Reference: History of Tabari, English version, v9, pp 186-187

In The Footnotes Of The Same Page (p187) In the English Version Of The

History Of al-Tabari The Translator Has Commented:

Although the timing is not clear, it seems that Ali and his group
came to know about Saqifa after what had happened there. At this
point, his supporters gathered in Fatimah's house. Abu Bakr and
Umar, fully aware of Ali's claims and fearing a serious threat from
his supporters, summoned him to the mosque to swear the oath of
allegiance. Ali refused, and so the house was surrounded by an armed
band led by Abu Bakr and Umar, who threatened to set it on fire if
Ali and his supporters refused to come out and swear allegiance to
Abu Bakr.
The scene grew violent and Fatimah was furious.
al-Imamah wa al-Siyasah by Ibn Qutaybah, v1, pp 3,19-20

Umar said to Fatimah (who was behind the door of her house): "I know

will not stop me to carry out my decision. If these people stay in
your house, I will burn the door in front of you."

Abu bakr Regret's !

Abu Bakr said (on his death bed): "I wish I had not searched for

Ali and Abbas were sitting inside the house of Fatimah, Abu Bakr told
Umar: "Go and bring them; if they refuse, kill them." Umar brought
fire to burn the house. Fatimah came near the door and said: "O son of
Khattab, have you come to burn our house on me and my children?" Umar
replied: "Yes I will, by Allah, until they come out and pay allegiance
to the Prophet's Caliph."

Iqd al-Fareed, by Ibn Abd Rabb, Part 3, Pg. 63

Anger of Syeda (sa) for Abubakr & Umer

During her last days, when Abu Bakr and Umar sought the mediation of Imam
Ali to visit the ailing Hadhrat Fatimah , as quoted by Ibn
Qutaybah, she tured her face to the wall when they greeted her and in
response to their plea for appeasement reminded them of the prophetic
declaration that one who displeases Fatimah has displeased the Prophet
and finally said: "I take Allah and the angels to be my witness that you
have not pleased me; on the other hand, you have angered me. When I shall
meet the Prophet (PBUH&HF) I will complain about you two."

al-Imamah wa al-Siyasah, by Ibn Qutaybah, v1, p14

When Umar came to the door of the house of Fatimah, he said:
"By Allah, I shall burn down (the house) over you unless you come out and give the oath of allegiance (to Abu Bakr)."

Abu Mohammad Abdullah Ibn Muslim Ibn Qutaybah
Daynuri in his history of Caliphs known as "al-Imamah wa al- Siyasah"

Umar asked for wood, and told those people inside the house: "I swear
by Allah who has my soul in his hand, that if you do not come out, I
will burn the house." Someone told Umar that Fatimah was inside the
house. Umar said: "So what! It doesn't matter to me who is in the

al-Imamah wa al-Siyasah by Ibn Qutaybah, v1, pp 3,19-20
Sunni historian, al-Baladhuri, reported that:

Abu Bakr asked Ali to support him, but Ali refused, then Umar went
toward the Ali's house with a burning torch. At the door he met
Fatimah who said to him: "Do you intend to burn the door of my house?"
Umar said: "Yes, because this act will strengthen the faith brought to
us by your father."

al Imama wa al Siyasa pages 18-28 states as follows
Abu Bakr was after group of people who failed to give bayya and gathered with Ali, he sent Umar in their direction. He (Umar) called them to come out from the house of Ali, but they refused to come out. Thus (Umar) asked (his men) to bring wood, then he said: 'I swear by He who controls the life of Umar, if you people do not come out of the house I shall set fire to it, and everyone inside shall perish. Some people said: 'O Abu Hafs (Umar), Fatima is also in this house'. Umar replied, 'I do not care' Then the people came out from the house and gave bayya except Ali.

ثم إن أبا بكر بعث عمر بن الخطاب إِلى علي ومن معه ليخرجهم من بيت فاطمة رضي الله عنها وقال : إِن أبوا عليك فقاتلهم .فأقبل عمر بشيء من نار على أن يضرم الدار فلقيته فاطمة رضي الله عنها وقالت : إِلى أين يا ابن الخطاب أجئت لتحرق دارنا قال : نعم أو تدخلوا فيما دخل فيه الأمة
Then Abu Bakr sent Umar bin Khattab to Ali and his companions with the objective that those 'people gathered in the house of Fatima come out, and that if anyone objects to coming out then you should fight them'. Then Umar approached with fire in his hands to set the house ablaze. At this point Fatima approached and said: ' O son of Khattab, would do you dare?’ Do you wish to set my home on fire?' Umar said: 'Yes, unless if you give bayya to Abu Bakr and enter into that which the majority of the Ummah have agreed to.'

Tareekh Abul Fida [Arabic], page 235,

الذين تخلفوا عن بيعة أبي بكر - في والعباس والزبير وسعد بن عُبادة. فأما عليّ والعباس والزبير، فقعدوا في بيت فاطمة حتى بَعث إليهم أبو بكر عمرَ ابن الخطاب ليُخرِجهم من بيت فاطمة، وقال له: إِن أبوا فقاتِلْهم. فأقبل بقَبس من نار على أن يُضرم عليهم الدار، فلقيته فاطمةُ، فقالت: يا بن الخطاب، أجئت لتُحرق دارنا؟ قال: نعم، أو تدخلوا فيما دخلتْ فيه الأمة.
Those who fell behind giving the bayya of Abu Bakr were Abbas, Zubayr and Sa'd bin Ubada, amongst whom Ali, Abbas and Zubayr were sitting in the house of Fatima. At that time Abu Bakr sent Umar ibn al-Khattab with the order 'that you remove those gathered in the house of Fatima, and if they refuse to come out then fight them'. Umar brought fire to the house of Fatima, then Fatima met him and said: 'O Ibn Khattab have you arrived in order to set my home on fire?'. He (Umar) replied: 'Yes, unless if you people give bayya to Abu Bakr as others have done’.
