Ahlul Bayt – The Family of The Prophet (pbuh)

Allah Says in The Quran: And stay quietly in your houses, and make not a dazzling display, like that of the former Times of Ignorance; and establish regular Prayer, and give regular Charity; and obey Allah and His Messenger. And Allah only wishes to remove all abomination from you, ye members of the Family, and to make you pure and spotless. (Quran-33:33)

In Light of Quran

The Wives of the Prophet are Members of His Household (Ahl Al-Bayt)

Allah wishes only to remove Ar-Rijs from you, O members of the family, and to purify you with a thorough purification[33:33]

Ibn Kathir in his tafsir said – This is a clear statement that the wives of the Prophet are included among the members of his family (Ahl Al-Bayt) here, because they are the reason why this Ayah was revealed, and the scholars are unanimously agreed that they were the reason for revelation in this case, whether this was the only reason for revelation or there was also another reason, which is the correct view. Ibn Jarir recorded that `Ikrimah used to call out in the marketplace

Allah wishes only to remove Ar-Rijs from you, O members of the family, and to purify you with a thorough purification [Quran-33:33]

Ibn Abi Hatim recorded that Ibn `Abbas said this concerning the Ayah “This was revealed solely concerning the wives of the Prophet.”

Ibn Kathir also considered The Family of Fatimah as the Ahl-ul-bait (People of the House)

He said in his Tafsir”It was revealed solely concerning the wives of the Prophet .” `Ikrimah said: “Whoever disagrees with me that it was revealed solely concerning the wives of the Prophet , I am prepared to meet with him and pray and invoke the curse of Allah upon those who are lying.” So they alone were the reason for revelation, but others may be included by way of generalization. Ibn Jarir narrated that Safiyyah bint Shaybah said: “`A’ishah, may Allah be pleased with her, said, `The Prophet went out one morning wearing a striped cloak of black camel’s hair. Al-Hasan, may Allah be pleased with him, came and he wrapped him in the cloak with him. Then Al-Husayn, may Allah be pleased with him, came and he wrapped him in the cloak with him. Then Fatimah, may Allah be pleased with her, came and he wrapped her in the cloak with him. Then `Ali, may Allah be pleased with him, came and he wrapped him in the cloak with him, then he said:

Allah wishes only to remove Ar-Rijs from you, O members of the family, and to purify you with a thorough purification.) This was recorded by Muslim.

Imam Jalal ud din Suyuti (rah): writes in his magnificent Tafsir Dur ul Munthur

Imam Ibn Abi Hatim and Ibn Asakir narrate from the route of Akrama (ra) who narrated from Ibn Abbas (ra) that {Allah only wishes to remove all abomination from you, ye members of the Family} was revealed regarding the blessed wives of Prophet (Peace be upon him) [Tafsir Dur ul Munthur, Volume No. 5, Page No. 562]

Imam Suyuti (rah) further quotes this hadith: Imam Ibn S’ad (ra) narrates from Urwa (ra) who said: Ahlul Bayt refers to wives of Prophet (Peace be upon him). This verse was revealed regarding Hadrat Aisha (ra)

How it specifically refers to blood relatives of Prophet (i.e. Imam Ali, Fatima, Hassan and Hussain – Ridhwan Allaho Ajmain)

Imam Suyuti narrates: It is narrated by Imam Tirimdhi and he declared it “Sahih”.. Imam Ibn Jarir, Ibn Mundhir and Imam Hakim who also declared it “Sahih” plus Imam Ibn Murduya and Baihaqi in his Sunnan narrate from the route of Umm Salama (ra) who said:

This ayah was revealed in my house when in the house were present Fatima, Ali, Hassan and Hussain (Ridhwan Allaho Ajmain). The Prophet (Peace be upon him) covered them in his own cloak and then said: (O Allah) these are my Ahlul Bayt, remove all abomination from them and make them pure and spotless [Tafsir Dur ul Munthur, Volume No. 5, Page No. 563]

Imam Ibn Jarir, Ibn Abi Hatim and Imam Tabarani narrate from Hadrat Abu Sa’id al Khudri (ra) who narrates from the Prophet (Peace be upon him) who said: This ayah is revealed about 5 personalities (1) Myself (2) Ali (3) Fatima (4) Hassan and (5) Hussain (Allah’s Peace and blessings be upon them all) 

In Light of Hadith
The Family of Fatimah is the Ahl-ul-bait (People of the House)

1) Ans bin Malik (RA) narrates that when the Holy Prophet (SAW) used to come out for Fajr (dawn) prayer, as he passed the door of Fatimah, he used to say, “O ‘people of the house’, perform your prayer” and then he used to recite the following verse from the Holy Quran: “Allah only desires to keep away (all kinds of) impurity from you, O ‘people of the house’! (the Prophet’s family) and to totally purify you,”

[Tirmidhi, al-Jami-us-sahih (5:352#3206), Ahmad bin Hambal, al-Musnad (3:259,285), Bukhari related it from Abul Hamra in al-Kuna (p.25# 205). In the tradition this routine of the Prophet (A) was carried out for a period of nine months.]

[al-Ahzab 33:33] He (pbuh) did this for six months

2) Safiyyah the daughter of Shaybah narrates that Ayeshah said, “The Holy Prophet (SAW) came out one morning wearing a cloak which had camel saddles woven on to it with black wool. Then Hasan bin Ali (RA) came and the Holy Prophet (SAW) took him under the cloak, then Husain (RA) came and entered beneath it with the Holy Prophet (SAW). Then Fatimah came and the Holy Prophet (SAW) took her under the cloak. Next Ali came and the Holy Prophet (SAW) also included him beneath it. Then the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW) recited the verse, ‘Allah only desires to keep away (all kinds of) impurity from you, O ‘people of the house!’ (the Prophet’s family) and to totally purify you,’ (al-Ahzab 33:33).”

[Muslim, as-Sahih (4:1883#2424), Ahmad bin Hambal, Fadail-us-sahabah (2:672#1149), Bayhaqi, as-Sunan-ul-kubra (2:149), Suyuti, ad-Durr-ul-manthur fit-tafsir-bil-mathur (6:605)]

3) Umar bin Abi Salamah (RA) who was brought up by the Prophet (SAW) narrates that when the verse, “Allah only desires to keep away (all kinds of) impurity from you, O ‘people of the house!’ (the Prophet’s family) and to totally purify you,” (al-Ahzab 33:33), was revealed to the Holy Prophet (SAW) at the home of Umm Salamah he (SAW) called Fatimah Hasan (RA) and Husain (RA) and covered them with a cloak. Ali was behind him (SAW), the Holy Prophet (SAW) also covered him under the same cloak and then said, “Oh Allah! These are my ahl-ul-bait (‘people of the house’) so keep impurity away from them and totally purify them.”

[Tirmidhi, al-Jami-us-sahih (5:351,663#3205,3787), Ahmad bin Hambal, al-Musnad (6:292), Bayhaqi related it with slightly different words in as-sunan-ul-kubra (2:150).]


4) Abu Saeed Khudri (RA) has said about the verse, “Allah only desires to keep away (all kinds of) impurity from you, O ‘people of the house’!…”, that it was revealed in honour of the following five personalities: the Messenger of Allah (SAW), Ali Fatimah Hasan (RA) and Husain (RA).

[Tabarani, al-Mujam-ul-awsat (3:380#3456), Ibn Hayyan, Tabaqat-ul-muhadditheen bi Asbhan (3# 384), Khateeb Baghdadi, Tareekh Baghdad (10:278)]


5) Narrated by Jabir ibn Abdullah: Jabir saw Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) when performing the hajj seated on his she-camel al-Qaswa’ on the day of Arafah giving an address, and he heard him saying, “O people, I have left among you something of such a nature that if you adhere to it you will not go astray: Allah’s Book and my close relatives who belong to my household.”

[Sunan Tirmidhi Volume 005, Book 162, Hadith Number 3718, Imam Tirmidhi (rah) said: It is Hassan]

16) Translation:”Barā’ bin ‘Āzib (RA) narrates: We performed hajj with Allāh’s Messenger (SAW). On the way he stayed at a place and commanded us (to establish) the prayer in congregation. After this, he held ‘Alī’s hand, and said: Am I not nearer than the lives of the believers? They replied: Why not! He said: Am I not nearer than the life of every believer? They replied: Why not! He said:
One who has me as his master has this (‘Alī) as his guardian. O Allāh! Befriend the one who befriends him and be the enemy of one who is his enemy.”

[Ibn Mājah narrated this sound hadīth (tradition) in preface (al-muqaddimah) to his Sunan (1:88 # 116), Ibn Kathīr, al-Bidāyah wan-nihāyah (4:168), Ibn ‘Asākir, Tārīkh Dimashq al-kabīr (45:167, 168)]

17) Most of the hadīth-scholars have described the tradition given below in the mode of revelation of the verse:

[Quran, al-Mā’idah 5:55]

(Surely your (helping) friend is Allāh and His Messenger and (along with them) are the believers who establish prayers, pay zakāh and bow down (in humility before Allāh (SWT))

“It is narrated by ‘Ammār bin Yāsir (RA) that a beggar came up to ‘Alī (RA) and stood beside him. He was kneeling in prayer. He (the beggar) pulled out his ring and he gave the ring to the beggar. Then ‘Alī (RA) called on the Prophet (SAW) and told him the news.At this occasion, this verse was revealed to him: (Surely your (helping) friend is Allāh and His Messenger and (along with them) are the believers who establish prayers, pay zakāh and bow down (in humility before Allāh (SWT)). Allāh’s Messenger (SAW) read out the verse and said: One who has me as his master has ‘Alī as his master. O Allāh! Be his friend who befriends him (‘Alī) and be his enemy who is his enemy.”

[Tabarānī related it in al-Mu’jam-ul-awsat (7:129, 130 # 6228), al-Mu’jam-ul-kabīr (4:174 # 4053; 5:195, 203, 204 # 5068, 5069, 5092, 5097), and in al-Mu’jam-us-saghīr (1:65), Ahmad bin Hambal narrated it in al-Musnad (1:119; 4:372), Hākim, al-Mustadrak (3:119, 371 # 4576, 5594)]

18) Translation:”It is narrated by Barā’ bin ‘Āzib (RA): We were on a journey with Allāh’s Messenger (SAW). (On the way) we stayed at Ghadīr Khum. There it was announced that the prayer was about to be offered. The space under two trees was cleaned for Allāh’s Messenger (SAW). Then he offered the zuhr (noon) prayer, and, holding ‘Alī’s hand, he said: Don’t you know that I am even nearer than the lives of the believers? They said: Why not! He said: Don’t you know that I am even nearer than the life of every believer? They said: Why not! The narrator says that he said while holding ‘Alī’s hand: One who has me as his master has ‘Alī as his master. O Allāh! Befriend the one who befriends him (‘Alī) and be the enemy of one who is his enemy. The narrator says that after this ‘Umar (bin al-Khattāb (RA)) met ‘Alī (RA) and said to him: O Ibn Abī Tālib! Congratulations, you have become the master of every male and female believer, morning and evening (for ever).”

[Ahmad bin Hambal related it from Barā’ bin ‘Āzib through two different chains of transmission in al-Musnad (4:281), Ibn Abī Shaybah, al-Musannaf (12:78 # 12167), Ibn Kathīr in al-Bidāyah wan-nihāyah (4:169; 5:464), Dhahabī has said in Siyar a’lām-in-nubalā’ (2:623, 624)]

What Ali Ibn Husain Zain Al Abidin Said to Yazid Ibn Muawiya when He Imprisoned Ahl al Bayt

Yazid asked one of his employed preachers to go on the ‘Mimber’ (pulpit) of the Mosque and abuse Imam Ali (a.s.) and his family. When the preacher finished his lecture, Imam Zain Al Abidin (a.s.) turned to him and said, “Be ashamed of yourself, you evil speaker. With your words you have displeased Allah so as to please people”. Then the Imam (a.s.) asked Yazid to let him talk to the people. Yazid refused to do so. The people of Syria, however, forced Yazid to allow the Imam to go on the Mimber.

Once on the Mimber, Imam Zain al-Abideen (a.s.) first praised Allah(swt) and His Messenger (pbuh). After that the Imam gave a long and very powerful speech letting the Syrians know the great position of Imam Husain (a.s.) to Allah(swt), and how evil Yazid and his family were. Part of the speech is summarised below:

“O listeners Allah has given us (Ahle Bart) six things which no one else has. He has given us special Wisdom, Patience, Dignity, Power of speech, Courage and Respect. He gave us special benefit of belonging to the family of his Prophet. To us belong Hamza and Jafar. To us belong Asadullah (The lion of Allah, Imam Ali(a.s.)). To us belong the leader of the youths of paradise (Imam Hassan(a.s.) and Imam Hussain(a.s.)).

“Those who know me, know me. Those who do not, then know that I am the son of Mecca and Mina. I am the son of Zamzam and Safa. I am the son of he who gave Zakat to the poor. I am the son of the best of those who have ever put on Ihram and performed ceremonies of Hajj. I am the son of he who was taken on the night journey from house of Allah to the Mosque of Aqsa and then to Miraj. I am the son of he who was taken around by Gibrael to the Lote-tree of the boundary (Sidratul Muntaha).

“I am the son of Muhammad Mustafa(pbuh). I am the son of Ali Al-Murtaza(a.s.) who fought the polytheists in the battle till they submitted to Islam and fought in the presence of the Prophet until his sword was broken and to whom Zulfikar was given. I am the son of he who had the honour to migrate twice in Islam. I am the son of Fatima the best women of the world…”.

Imam Husain and the Fitnah in his life time

1) Imam Husain (AS) said: “Don’t you see that the truth is not followed and the falsehood is not discouraged? (The situation is so severe) so that a Believer wishes to meet Allah (i.e., to die). And today I don’t see death but prosperity, and living with tyrants is nothing but disgust and disgrace.”

[Hilyatul Awliyaa, by Abu Nu’aym, v2, p39]

2) Imam Husain (AS) said in the day of Ashura: “If you do not have any religion, then at least be free (open-minded) in your present life.”

3) Imam Husain (AS) said: “By Allah, I shall not give my oath to you like a humiliated one, and nor shall I flee like the captive.”

4) A person asked Abdullah Ibn Umar whether a Muslim could kill flies. I heard him saying (in reply): “The people of Iraq are asking about the killing of flies while they themselves murdered the son of the daughter of Allah’s Apostle . The Prophet said, They (i.e. Hasan and Husain) are my two sweet basils in this world.”

[Sahih al-Bukhari, Arabic-English, v5, Tradition #96]

5) Anas Ibn Malik said to Ubaidullah Ibn Ziyad in defiance “Al-Husain resembled the Prophet more than any other people.”

[Sahih al-Bukhari, Arabic-English, v5, Tradition #91]

6) Imam Husain said: “I revolted not for wickedness nor for fame. Verily I rose only to seek for rectification in the nation of my grandfather, The Messenger of Allah.”

7) Imam Husain said: “The true life is all having a strong idea and striving (for that idea).”

8) Imam Husain said: “People are the slaves of this world, and religion is just in their tong. They keep it as long as it meets their comfortable life. But when the test comes, religion holders become very few.”

He Also recited:

Peace, with sception and hope, I seek, (congruity’s scope I know is bleak)
To mend I crave (rather than kill)
To spill blood, abhor I will.
Intend I do, no force to use (If sense in you I can infuse)
But the rules, supreme, of the divine faith
Resolved I am, to defend till death.
Face your hostile moves I will.
Thought accord I covet, seek peace still.
A holy war it means indeed
If waged to crush the devil’s creed.
No rancor, `against you,’ I hold
But faith do cherish – as I told.
Islam I will resolutely shield
Burnt will stand and never yield.
Would welcome death (and make it tame)
Would rather die than live in shame.
Your Prophet’s scion I’m – you know
At least some regard to his name show.
His singular dictum is my creed:
“Universal good” I adore, indeed.
Ali, the paragon, the seraphic Imam
Cham of the faith, the shield of Islam
Inimitable, impeccable: I am his son
His peerless attributes I have won.
My heart is virtues’ abode and nest
Blessedness harbors in my breast.

The Prophet Crying For Imam al-Husain

1) Narrated Salma: “I went to visit Umm Salamah and found her weeping. I asked her what was making her weep and she replied that she had seen Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) (meaning in a dream) with dust on his head and beard. She asked him what was the matter and he replied, `I have just been present at the slaying of al-Husayn.'”

[Sahih Tirmidhi, per:Mishkat al-Masabih, by Khatib al-Tabrizi, English Version, Tdadition #6157]

2) Narrated Abdullah Ibn Abbas: One day at midday he saw in a dream the Prophet (PBUH) dishevelled and dusty with a bottle containing blood in his hand and said, “You for whom I would give my father and mother as ransom, what is this?” He replied, “This is the blood of al-Husayn and his companions which I have been collecting today.” He told that he was reckoning that time and found that he had been killed at that time.

[Musnad Ahmad Hanbal, Dala’il an-Nubuwwah, by al-Bayhaqi; per:Mishkat al-Masabih, by Khatib al-Tabrizi, English Version, Tdadition #6172]

3) Aisha narrated: The Prophet (PBUH) said: “Gabriel informed me that my grandson al-Husain (AS) will be killed after me in the land of al-Taff and brought me this Turbah (mudd/soil) and informed me that this is the soil of the place he will be martyred.”

[Tabaqat, by Ibn Sa’d, al-Tabarani, as quoted in: al-Sawa’iq al-Muhriqah, by Ibn Hajar Haythami, Ch. 11, section 3, p292]

4) Um Salama (the wife of Prophet (S)) said: I heard the Jinns (the unseen creatures) mourning for al-Husain.”

[Tarikh al-Kabir, by al-Bukhari (the author of Sahih), v4, part 1, p26, Fada’il al-Sahaba, by Ahmad Ibn Hanbal, v2, p776, Tradition #1373, Tabarani, v3, pp 130-131, Tahdhib, v7, p404]

Sayyiduna Imam al-Hasan Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu Said

Good manners and disposition are ten:

1.    Truth in Speech
2.    Strongly opposing falsehood
3.    Charity
4.    To repay favours
5.    Kindness of kith and kin
6.    Protect your neighbour
7.    Right enjoined upon you on all creation
8.    Entertaining guests
9.    Etiquette and
10.    The most important is Shame and modesty.

The best characteristic regarded amongst the wise is wisdom of Taqwah (fear of Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala) and the worst characteristic is bad behaviour and bad manners.

Those who extend a hand of friendship towards you then become friends with them you will be regarded as just.

Your age continues to increase while your life span decreases therefore assist somebody while you can with anything you have.

Momin is he who provides for himself in the hereafter while a Kafir (rejecter of Faith) is he who is busy in providing for himself the comforts of the World.


Sayyiduna Imam al-Hussain Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu Said

  • Dishonoured is he, who is a Miser.
  • If you wish to become a leader then make action and movement, toil and labour your business.
  • You are seeing the different types of business dealings shows that the World is changing its colours (becoming more fickle), turning its face away, emptying itself of good, but we still have a little time, a contemptible life is left, danger and fearfulness has enclosed, Alas with regret, can’t you see that justice and truth have been placed behind, falsehood is being practised openly, whosoever hand you grab to rescue he does not want to be rescued towards the everlasting and Almighty creator, nor does he wish to fulfil his duties to his Eternal Lord. I prefer martyrdom, instead of living a life under these oppressors for such a life is also a crime.
  • The World has changed colours and it has been deprived of good, Is there nobody that would stop the oppressor from oppression, The time has come for the Mo’min to come forth and to sacrifice everything for the sake of Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala.
  • Do not fear that which you do not understand, not cannot attain.
  • Do not keep high hopes for any remuneration for work which is more than necessary.
  • If you know the results of a job will be difficult, then do not take its responsibilities upon your shoulders.
  • The highest status amongst the forgiving is of that person who has all the power to avenge himself yet he adopts to forgive.
  • All the people whom I loved have departed from this World and I am left amongst those whom I don’t like.
  • The best use of wealth is to modestly and honourably resolve it.
