The love of the household of the prophet is necessary, as the Quran orders. As it has been
proved that the Verse of purity was revealed for the holy 5, the household of prophet of
Muhammad, The Ahl-e-Bait. These include Hz Ali, Hz Fatima, Hz Hassan and Hz
Hussain.

Abu Talib: The Staunch Believer

"Finally the Prophet's Waris (Executors) are of three types, those that possess Hikmah
(Sagacity, wisdom), Ismah (Infallibility) and Qutbiyat Batiniyah (are Spiritual Pivots)
they are his Ahl'ul bayt". - At-Tafhimatu l-Iahiyah Volume 2 page 14

Leaving aside these arguments, the wives of the Holy Prophet are not included in the
Ahle Bait. It is narrated in Sahih Muslim and Jam'u'l-Usul that Hasan Ibn Samra asked
Zaid Ibn Arqam whether the wives of the Holy Prophet were included in his Ahle Bait.
Zaid said: "By Allah, no. A wife remains with her husband for a certain period, but when
he divorces her, she goes to her father's home, joins her mother's family, and is
completely cut off from her husband. The Ahle Bait are those members of the family of
the Holy Prophet for whom charity is forbidden. They will not be separated from the
Ahle Bait wherever they go."

Apart from the unanimity of views among the Ithna' Ashari Shias about the holy progeny,
there are many hadith recorded in your own books, which disprove the assumption that
the wives of the Prophet are included in his Ahle Bait.

During Mubahila, the prophet took none other than these 4 holy personalities with him
for the mubahila with the Christians.

Ahlul Bayt (AS) who must be followed by all people are niether his wives,nor the whole
Muslim Ummah, but the Prophet`s closest family members who were explained by him,
in many Prophetic Hadeeths narrated by Sunni and Shia scholars

Some of the Sunni Narrations are:- From Aeysha, daughter of Abu Bakr, and a wife of
the Prophet, that the Prophet (SAWA) had a black cover under which he put Hasan and
Hussain, and Fatema, and Ali, then recited (Surely Allah wants to kep away from you all
impurities O` Ahlul Bayt, and purify you best purifying). 33:33

This Hadeeth explains who are Ahlul Bayt (AS), and is narrated in : Saheeh Muslim
vol.7, p130. And Mustadrak Al-Saheehayn by Al-Haakim Al-Neesabori vol.3, p. 147.
And Al-Sunan Al-Kubra by Al-Bayhaqi vol.2, p. 149. And Tafseer Al-Tabari vol. 22, p.
5. And Tafseer Ibn Katheer vol.3, p.485. And Tafseer Al-Durr Al-Manthoor by Al-
Soyooti vol.5, p. 198 & 199.

There are many Hadeeths in this regard stating that this Quranic verse (33:33) was
revealed on the Prophet (SAWA) when he was at the house of his wife Um Salamah, and
he called Ali, Fatemah, Hasan, and Hussain and put them under a cover and said :-
O`Allah, these are my Ahlul Bayt, O`Allah, keep from them all impurities, and purify
them best purifying). Um Salamah wished to be with them, but the Prophet (SAWA) did
not include her, but told her: you are on good.Yet again we see Ali is also menchoned in
Ahl al bait(AS)

Abu Talib: The Staunch Believer

The following of Quran and (Ahlul Bayt) is - No Doubt - the only way to be on the
straight path of Real Islam, the Islam of the Prophet (SAWA) and his holy progeny
(Ahlul Bayt).

1-The Prophet Ebrahim (AS) was ordered by Allah (SWT) to guide people to following
his progeny, as was our last Prophet Mohammed (SAWA) ordered by Allah (SWT) to do
the same. Allah (SWT) says in Quran:- ..Surely Allah has chosen Adam, Noah,
Ebrahim’s Progeny and Imran’s Progeny above everyone else. 3:33.

2-Ahlul Bayt (AS) who must be followed by all people are niether his wives,nor the
whole Muslim Ummah,but the Prophet`s closest family members who were explained by
him, in many Prophetic Hadeeths narrated by Sunni and Shia scholars. Some of the Sunni
Narrations are:-

From Aeysha, daughter of Abu Bakr,and a wife of the Prophet, that the Prophet (SAWA)
had a black cover under which he put Hasan and Hussain, and Fatema, and Ali, then
recited (Surely Allah wants to kep away from you all impurities O` Ahlul Bayt, and
purify you best purifying). 33:33

This Hadeeth explains who are Ahlul Bayt (AS), and is narrated in : Saheeh Muslim
vol.7, p130. And Mustadrak Al-Saheehayn by Al-Haakim Al-Neesabori vol.3, p. 147.
And Al-Sunan Al-Kubra by Al-Bayhaqi vol.2, p. 149. And Tafseer Al-Tabari vol. 22, p.
5. And Tafseer Ibn Katheer vol.3, p.485. And Tafseer Al-Durr Al-Manthoor by Al-
Soyooti vol.5, p. 198 & 199.

From Um Salamah,a wife of the prophet(SAWA) that when the verse ( Surely Allah
wants to keep away from you O`Ahlul Bayt all impurities, and purify you best purifying)
was revealed, then the Prophet (SAWA) called Ali, Fatema, Hasan, and Hussain, and
covered them with a cover and said (O`Allah these are my Ahlul Bayt…..).

This Hadeeth was narrated by Abu Sa`eed Al- Khidri fom Um Salamah, Tafseer Al-
Tabari vol.22, p. 6. And Tafseer Al-Durr Al-Manthoor by Al-Soyooti vol.5, p. 198.

This Hadeeth shows that even the wives of the Prophet (SAWA) were not included in
(Ahlul Bayt) as Um Salamah wished to be included and that Ali(as) was part of Ahl al
bait(AS), but was told by the Prophet (SAWA):- You be at your place, and you are on
good.

You may refer to find some of these Hadeeths to:- Al-Sunan Al-Kubra by Al-Bayhaqi ;
vol. 2, p. 150, Tafseer Ibn Katheer; vol. 3, p. 483. Al-Durr Al-Manthoor by Al-Sayooti;
vol.5, p.198. Al-Mustadrak by Al-Hakim Al-Nisabori; vol. 2, p. 416. Tareekh Baghdad
by Al-Khateeb Al-Baghdadi; vol. 9, p. 126. Tafseer Al- Tha`alibi; vol.1 , p. 334. Saheeh
Al-Tirmithi; vol. 13, p. 248 &249. Musnad Ahmad Bin Hanbal; vol.6, p. 292. And
Tahtheeb Al-Tahtheeb; vol. 2, p. 297.

Abu Talib: The Staunch Believer

3-The prophet (SAWA) ordered all Muslims to keep following Quran, and Ahlul Bayt, so
that they will never go astray if they keep following both of them. (Saheeh Muslim vol.4
p.1874,Sunan Al-Tirmithi vol.5 p.662,Munad Ahmad Ibn Hanbal vol.3 p.14,and many
other sources), So how can you accept the claim that (Ahlul Bayt) are all the Muslims?.

Can the Prophet order the Muslims to keep following themselves?. What about the great
differences which happened among the Muslims,and obviously had right and wrong?
Whom to follow from the different groups amongst the Ummah ? Does it make sense for
the greatest leader in the history to order his followers to follow anyone or any group
among themselves,without guiding them to the proper and pious leadership?. No doubt,
this is a baseless claim from people who try to degrade the proper leadership of (Ahlul
Bayt), and empty it from its meaning.

The Ahlul Bayt are infallibles, as Quran testifies in At-Tahera, pure from all rijs. But his
wives did disobey the prophet and Allah was angry at his wives, namely Hafsa and
Ayesha. Disobeyance to Allah is Ar-rijs and the Ahlul Bayt are free from it, but the wives
are not. Thus the wives are not included in the AhlulBayt.

As the Quran says: “O (Our) Prophet! Why dost thou forbid (unto thyself) what God hath
made lawful unto thee? Thou seekest to please thy wives; and God is Oft-Forgiving, the
Most Merciful.” (66:1) “Indeed, hath God made lawful for you the dissolution of your
oaths (in such cases), and God (alone) is your Lord, and He is the All-Knowing, the All
Wise.” (66:2) “When the Prophet confided unto one of his wives a matter, but when she
divulged it (unto others) and God apprised him therefore, he made known a part of it and
avoided a part; so when he informed her of it, said she: ‘Who informed thee of this?’ He
said: ‘Informed, me, the All-Knowing, the All-Aware’.” (66:3) “If ye two turn (in
repentance) unto Him, then indeed your hearts are inclined (to this) but if ye two back up
each other against him, then verily God it is Who is his Protector, and Gabriel, and the
(most) Virtuous one among the believers, and the angels thereafter will back (him) up.”
(66:4) “Happily his Lord if he divorceth you, will give him in your place wives better
than you, submissive, faithful, obedient, repentant, prayerful, observers of fast, widows
and virgins.” (66:5)

Thus God threatened to substitute Prophet's wives with better ones. This clearly explains
that the wives were not included in the AhlulBayt, they were not even the best women of
their own times save the whole world.

Allah SWT is showing the Muslims that Aisha and Hafsa contrived behind the Prophet's
back, causing him (s.) to make an oath, restricting himself from something for their sake.
Allah SWT is telling our beloved Messenger (s.) that he need not do this, that such oaths
hold no weight and therefore he did not have to keep it.

Allah is further letting us know that these two should repent and if they are inclined then
Allah will forgive them. BUT He, the Most High, warns them that if they persist in their
wretched deed, then, "verily God it is Who is his Protector, and Gabriel, and the (most)
Virtuous one among the believers, and the angels thereafter will back (him) up."

Abu Talib: The Staunch Believer

Such a statement by the Lord of the Worlds is not a vain statement. Allah is very serious
about Aisha and Hafas's wrong deed towards His Messenger. Further Allah warns that
"Happily his Lord if he divorceth you, will give him in your place wives better than you,
submissive, faithful, obedient, repentant, prayerful, observers of fast, widows and
virgins."

Obviously by this statement Aisha and Hafsa were not the best Muslimat out there. And
the fact that they committed sins shows that they are not infallible, therefore, they and the
rest of the wives are not of the Ahlul Bayt which Allah (SWT) speaks of so reverently in
the Qur’an; those whom He purified and those whom He said can only touch the Hidden
Book.

The following of Quran and (Ahlul Bayt) is - No Doubt - the only way to be on the
straight path of Real Islam, the Islam of the Prophet (SAWA) and his holy progeny
(Ahlul Bayt).
