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).
They treated and raised the status of other as best
They say contrary and opposite to what Allah
said regarding Ahlel
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

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
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

REGARDING AHLEL BAIT (I)
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.
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.
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..
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
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
