Assalamun alaikum


Today we continue with the Thaqalain Part 4

In this month of Dhil Hajj many important events took place about Ahlel Bait, hence I take this opportunity to continue with my version of Thaqalain. The first of this month is the day the Prophet Muhammad (saw) has ordered Ali (as) to go to after Abu Bakr (ra) and take away from him chapter of Baqr and Ali (as) should go and read that chapter to the people of Mecca. On the eighteenth is the day of Idd Ghadir, this day the Prophet (saw) has chosen Imam Ali (as) to take his position after him. On nineteenth is the day of the wedding between Imam Ali (as) and Fatima (as). On the twenty fourth is the day of Mubahila the day of cursing between the Prophet (saw) and the Christians, whom he came along with Ali, Fatima, Hassan and Hussain. Additionally is the day as verse 5:55 Ayate Wilayat was revealed when Ali (as) gave charity to a poor while he was praying in the mosque. On twenty fifth is the day chapter Dahr was revealed "Hal Ata Alal Insani hinu Kunal Dahri Lam yakun Mazkuran Shaina .." in favor of Ahlel Bait Ali, Fatima, Hassan and Hussain, after fasting three days continuously and gave their breakfasts to poor, orphans and prisoner (Asira).


Moreover, I have seen in this forum there are people who keep alive tradition (Sunnah) of Bani Ummaya. They treated and raised the status of other as best than Ahlel Bait. They say contrary and opposite to what Allah and his Prophet (saw) said regarding Ahlel Bait. They are using traditions in favour of Ahle to their enemies.


Netters, I need a bit of your apology, sometimes you will find my articles are getting bit longer though I tried to shorten them. Before I continue with Thaqalain part 4 I would like to remind readers of two ways I used to write my articles as I mentioned in Thaqalain part 1 and 3.

First way of obtaining those traditions (hadith) I wrote in Thaqalain part 1 as follow:


Mashaallah, ahle Sunna have got plenty of traditions books for examples six Sahih, Musnad of Imam Hanbal, Kanzul Kamil, Tarikh Baghdad, Tirmizi, Tafsir Tabari, Abu Daud, Sha'abi, Tafsir Ibn Kathir, Shara-e-Aqaida, Yanabee ul-mawadat, Tafsir Qurtubi, Tafsir Razi, Addurrul Manthur, Nurul Absar Mustadarak of Imam Hakim and others.


In fact reading all of these books requires a great deal of time, and like us who we are at work from morning till evening is not easy. Then come home, today we want to visit relatives, or go somewhere or playing with children or go into the Internet. You'll find that no sufficient times available to read. I am a reader but I have many books waiting for me to read, till now I do not have enough time. We might have some or several traditions books but not necessary to have all of them. Therefore, this work of reading these traditions books of course is the work of religious scholar, we mostly can do is to extract and take references, and if we can get time it is better to read them.


Previously I mentioned before that my knowledge is little and is limited but I will attempt to my best ability. For this reason you will find mostly I extract from books the religious scholars wrote regarding one tradition from different sources. Further we will confirm regarding the mentioned tradition to be available from those mention sources before we started to doubt. For example, that 2 volumes books that collected all Thaqalain tradition from different books of Ahlel Sunnah.

So I've used the books such as Peshawar nights, Murajeat, Then I was Guided, Ask Those who know, Why I Chose the religion of Ahl ul Bayt, Status of Imam Sadiq (as) and others. Anyone interest to ensure about these traditions (hadith) is better to refer to the original books extracted and explained by those above mentioned books. Sometimes you'll find pages are different due to a new publication or books of another language.

The second way I used and wrote in Thaqalain part 3 through
evidence (Burhan), confirmation (Dalil) and proof (Hujjat). I proved using these verses from Quran as 16:125, 2:111, 21:24.


After discussing through logic, wisely and lecturing in the best way by bringing EVIDENCES (Burhan) and still the other side do not accept this, here Quran uses the second method. And I brought verses from Quran such as 109:1-6; 36:10; 2:171;  7:176


Inshallah I will try to continue with these two ways as I explained above. So we continue with Thaqalain Part 4 of the traditions (hadith) of Ahlel Bait brought by Holy Prophet Muhammad bin Abdullah (saw).









[Shakir 33:33] Allah only desires to keep away the uncleanness from you, O people of the House! and to purify you a (thorough) purifying.


Saheeh Muslim has related from Aesha that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w) came out of his honoured house wearing a blanket of hair. In the meanwhile Hassan (a.s) arrived. The Holy Prophet (s.a.w) took him under his blanket. Then came Hussain (a.s) who also was taken under the cover. Then came Fatimah (a.s) whom also he covered under the blanket. Then Ali (a.s) came he was also taken under the cover. The Holy Prophet (s.a.w) then recited the verse "Innama… Saheeh Muslim, Vol IV, page 127.


Abu Saeed Khudri has recorded from Umme Salmah that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w) had prayed to the effect; "O' Allah! Here are the members of my Household. May they be kept fee from all dirtiness and may they be purified completely." Tafseer Tabari Vol 22, page 22.


Khateb has narrated from Abu Saeed Khudri through Umme Salmah to the following effect: "At the time of the revelation of this verse there were in the house only Ali (a.s), Fatimah (a.s), and Hasanain (a.s). I was at the door. I went forward and asked the Holy Prophet (s.a.w) as to what my status was, and the Holy Prophet (s.a.w) said to me, "you have a good stand." Al Khateeb Vol IX, pate 127.  And in Saheeh Tirmizi is recorded, that Umme Salmah also had a mind to go under the cover but she was told to remain where she was, and that she was blessed with goodness.


Saheeh Tirmizi has recorded through Anas bin Malik that the Holy Prophet  (s.a.w) for six months after each days morning  prayer, when passing by the door of Fatimah (a.s) used to address them with a greeting as Ahlel Bait and to recite the Ayate Tat-heer. (Sharhe Tirmizi XIII, page 85, Isteeab Margin of Esabah IV, page 46). Suyuti in his Durre Mansoor  V, page 174 mentioned for eight months, and in Asadul Ghabah Vol V, page 174 it is reported to be nine months.


And some other verses of Quran about Ahlel Bait.






[Shakir 3:61] But whoever disputes with you in this matter after what has come to you of knowledge, then say: Come let us call our sons and your sons and our women and your women and our near people and your near people, then let us be earnest in prayer, and pray for the curse of Allah on the liars.

Mubahila is the day of cursing between the Prophet (saw) and the Christians, namely the Islamic religion and astrayed religion of the prophet Issa (as), the one is cursed is the one would be ruined. For this time supplication (Dua) is very important as it must be accepted by Allah, of course in order to be accepted require such type of people who are best, clean from all spiritual dirties and every sins. If such other companions had better characterized than Ahlu Bait then the Prophet (saw) would have brought them here in this Mubahila. We would have found the first, the second and the third Caliph, but to the surprise of Abdul masih he saw other people who were not companions. He saw faces who in his own words he has said that "By Allah, I saw faces if they would have prayed to Allah to remove rock from its position, then the rock would have move there." They are the ones whom Almighty Allah has cleaned them thoroughly in the verse 33:33 and they are Ali, Fatima, Hassan and Hussain. This is event of Mubahila is sufficient to show and prove how injustice has been done to Ahlel Bait, but for them to be praised or followed is something put aside and into corner.  I regarding the verse of Mubahila I described it in part 2 and because of the shortage of place I see it best I should not explain at length, if netters request I Inshallah I will bring it another time.




[Shakir 42:23] That is of which Allah gives the good news to His servants, (to) those who believe and do good deeds. Say: I do not ask of you any reward for it but love for my near relatives; and whoever earns good, We give him more of good therein; surely Allah is Forgiving, Grateful.

Ibne Hajar has quoted in chapter eleven, section one, of his book 'Sawaeqa Mohreqah' a tradition transmitted by Ahmed, Tabrani, Hakim and Ibne Abi Hatim from Ibne Abbas, that when this Ayat was revealed, the Prophet (s.a.w) was asked : "who are your relations?" In reply the  Prophet (s.a.w) said :


Ali (a.s), Fatimah (a.s), and their two sons (a.s).


Also can be found in Zamkhshari, on page 339 of the second volume of Kashshaf, Muhibbudin Tabari on page 25 of 'Dhakhair', Nayshapuri in his 'Tafseer'. Ibne Talha Shafei on page 8 of Matelbus Suool, Razi in his 'Tafseer', abu Masud on page 665 of the seven volume of his Tafseer, on the margin of Tafseer Razi, Nafsi on page 99 of the fourth volume of his Tafseer 'Hamisho Tafseer-il Khazin', Abu Hayan on page 516 of volume seven of his Tafseer, Ibne Sabbagh Maleki on page 12 of Fusulul Mohimmah, Hafiz Haythami on page 31 of Kifaytut Talib and Ostalani in Mawahb have quoted that Allah has made incumbent upon His subjects the knowledge love of the "Qurba" and has made the friendship of Ahlel Bait of the Prophet (s.a.w) an obligatory duty.


To be continued..





Mohammed Yusuf




Narrated Aisha:
 One day the Prophet (PBUH&HF) came out afternoon wearing a black cloak (upper garment or gown; long coat), then al-Hasan Ibn Ali came and the Prophet accommodated him under the cloak, then al-Husain came and entered the cloak, then Fatimah came and the Prophet entered her under the cloak, then Ali came and the Prophet entered him to the cloak as well. Then the Prophet recited: "Verily Allah intends to keep off from you every kind of uncleanness O' People of the House (Ahlul-Bayt), and purify you a perfect purification (the last sentence of Verse 33:33)."



In addition to what the Prophet (saw) said who are the real “Ahlul Bait”, he made the habit for six or nine months, every day after morning prayer he would passed by by the door of Fatima's house and address them with greeting as these are "MY AHLEL BAIT" and recite this verse of tat-hir 33.
