Ahl Al-Bayt – the family of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)

We are living in troubled times.

According to hadith the first thing that will destroyed is presence of heart in prayer and the last is prayer.

One of those things that has been destroyed a long time ago is the respect for Ahl Al-Bayt.

Allah states in the Quran, “Allah was to remove filth from the Ahl Al-Bayt and purify you.”

Not one single member of Ahl Al-Bayt will enter the hellfire according to a hadith that states so; this was because of the piety of Fatimah (Allah be pleased with her). Tabarani

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said to Ali (may Allah be pleased with him) , “Are you not happy that you will be with your sons their descendants, their partners and those who follow us on our right and left.” Imam Ahmed

The Ahl Al-Bayt is similar to the ark of Nuh (upon him peace) according to another hadith. Mustaraq Al-Hakim.

The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “The stars are the security of the skies and if the stars go so do the inhabitants of the sky; The Ahl Al-Bayt are the security of the earth and if they go so will the inhabitants of the earth.” Imam Ahmed

So many Ahl Al-Bayt are not married or do not have children and if this happens then await the day of judgement.

Anyone who hates Ahl Al-Bayt will thrown into the hellfire.

In Surah Kahf (18) the treasure was given to the descendants of a righteous man to his great grandchildren and he was either seven or eight generations away.

Who is the grandfather of Ahl Al-Bayt?

There is no one better than him.

Look at his descendants and you will see so many perfect people.

The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “What is wrong with some people who hurt my family; whoever hurts them hurts me and whoever hurts me hurts Allah.” He said this after Sabiah ibn Abu Lahab daughter came to him said that people were calling her daughter of the wood of hellfire. Tabarani

We are strange people - we claim to love Ahl Al-Bayt but what we mean are those who are famous or on television.

What about the poor Ahl al-Bayt?

Are they not Ahl Al-Bayt?

Some of them are sinful but are they not Ahl Al-Bayt?

As long they are alive then there is small piece of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) in them.

This does not decrease.

There is a hadith state states six categories of people are cursed by The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) all the prophets and the angels and one of those is someone who does something haram/prohibited to one of the Ahl Al-Bayt. Reported by Al-Hakim who stated it is authentic according to Muslims stipulations.

Backbiting a normal Muslim is haram but to backbite a member of Ahl Al-Bayt means that you have are cursed by all the Prophets as well as the major sin.

Do you think that you'll accept someone that you cursed? Never.

Unless they leave what made them curse them.

If the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) curses you then is there any hope for you?

To visit any member of Ahl Al-Bayt when they are ill is highly desired.

Abdullah ibn Mubarak (may Allah be pleased with him) used to Hajj every year and he was travelling in Kufa and saw a woman (she was one of the descendants of Ali) slicing a dead dog and taking the meat. He saw it and was shocked then followed her home. He heard her calling her children to eat the meat. He knocked the door and spoke to her to find out what was wrong. He found out that her husband had died and she had four starving daughters at home. He had six thousand golden coins with him and gave it all to her. Then said that he wasn’t going to hajj and said when the money runs out ask about me. (so she could get some more) When the people came back from hajj he asked Allah to accept their pilgrimage. They said may Allah accept your hajj and thanked him for narrating hadith, at every station. It was said and angel took his form and performed hajj for him.

This is the great reward for helping Ahl Al-Bayt.
