Then some of the Sahabah of Muhammad built their houses around the Al-Masjid al-Nabawi. All of these houses had a door that was opened to the mosque. In the 3th year after Muhammad's first revolution, Allah ordered prophet to shut the doors of houses that could be opened to the mosque, except for Ali ibn Abi Talib’s house.[3] After this order, some of the people protested to prophet. He answered them: "I am ordered by Allah , to shut all the doors except for Ali ibn Abi Talib’s. I heard your words. By Allah, I did not order to shut or open any door of the mosque. Then I am compelled to do so."[4][5][6] In some sources are came that Hamza ibn Abdul-Muttalib, became sad and said to Muhammad: "Are you telling your uncle to leave, while you are keeping your cousin?" Muhammad answered: "I did not keep him, but it is Allah’s order."[7][8][9]
