6th Imam Walks Through Fire Without Being Harmed

According to the Dozeners Umar (ra) killed Fatima (sa) by burning her house. Yet a tradition ascribed to Imam Sadeq (as) says when  his house was burned down, and he walked through fire demonstrating his Imamate. With this miracle in  the Dozeners  conclude that he was the living proof (hujjah).

al-Mansar sent Hasan b. Zayd (d. 168/784-85), the governor of Mecca and Medina, to burn down al-Sadiq's house. The fire spread through the house and al-Sadiq came out, walking
among the flames saying, "I am the son of A'raq al-tura,I am the son of Ibrahim the friend of God (Khalil Allah). (Ibn Sahrasub, Mandqib, vol. 3, p. 362, cited in Maglisi, Bihar, vol. 47, p. 136, no. 186.")
