In the name of God the Beneficent the Merciful
SUB TOP : SAYING OF HOLY PROPHET AND Ahlal BAIT (A.S.) :-
After completing the introduction on the subject now we will discuss some ahadeeth and rewayaat concerning to Ahlal bait as a whole and see what the holy prophet said and how the Ummah in general did ?
1. Ref. ( In book Nayabe-ul-Mawadat Chapter No.3, )
Imam Ahmed ibn Hambal narrates from Ans bin Malik, Hamooni narrates from Salma bin Akwa and Abu Saeed Khizre , Hakem from Jabir bin Abdullah and Abdullah bin Abbas , Hamooni from Imam Mohammad Baqir (A.S.) and Imam from his forefathers up to hazrat Ali (A.S.) , Hassan Massana from his father hazrat Imam Hassan (A.S.) and Imam from his father hazrat Ali (A.S.) , Hasham bin Hassan from Imam Hussain (A.S.) , Ammash from Imam Jafar Sadeq (A.S.) and the Imam from his fore fathers .
In all the above mentioned series of references the Holy Prophet said, " The stars are protection for the inhabitants of sky when the star will finish the inhabitants of sky will also finish and the same way my Ahlal Bait are the protection for the inhabitants of earth, when my Ahlal Bait will pass away from the earth the earth along with its all being will collapse.
Further in the same rewayaat the holy prophet said that I am going to leave two precious things among you and they are the book of Allah ( Quran ) and my Ahlal - Bait. If you (the direct address is to Sahabah Karam ) keep yourself linked with both of them you will never be misguided from the right path of Allah . Still this rewayat is continuing, but here I will comment a bit. From the saying of holy prophet it is very clear that to be with Quran and Ahlal Bait is the guarantee of right path . They are the standard of right path Sahabah Karam and all other ummah have to be faithfully link themselves to them to insure that their are following the right path. The Quran and the Ahlal Bait are the standard and the whole ummah including Sahaba Karam are those who are to adapt the standard, and it is very clear to every sensible being that standard and those who are to adapt standard can never be of the same status. Further in the same Rewayat the Holy Prophet said learn from them and don't teach them because they are given a knowledge from God which you do not have. To Allah they are highly respectable beings.
2 :- Ref. (Mishkat ul Mesbayee, Chapter - 4,)
Hazrat Abu Zar Ghafari said by holding the door of Ka'ba that he heard the Holy Prophet saying " My Ahlal Bait are like the boat of Nuh, one who got in, got the success , and one who failed to do so has ended himself in vain and loss.
3: Ref. (Zakhair tul okba,)
From ibn Abbas the holy prophet said, " Do not imagine any one to be as my Ahlal Bait.
4:- Ref. ( Same above book )
In the same above referred book from Jabir ibn Abdullah " If some one does not recite Darood on Mohammed and Ale Mohammed during his prayer such a prayer is not accepted to God.
5:- Ref. Al Sumteen (referred by Neyabiul Mawadat ) p-685 ,
Narrated by ibn-a- Abbas one day, one jew of Medina name Nasal came to holy prophet and asked few questions, his first question was about Tauheed, the holy prophet replied in detail. His second question was that every prophet has his special descendent called "Wassi " as Haroon was the Wassi of our prophet Musa so who is your Wassi ,The Holy Prophet replied that Ali is my Wassi after that the two Sibt Hassan and Hussain and after them the nine from the generation of Hussain, then Nasal said , tell me their names also. The Holy Prophet said that after Hussain his son Zain-ul-Abideen and after him his son Mohammed Baqer, than after him his son Jafar-e-Sadeq, and then after him his son Mussa-e-Kazim and then his son Ali Raza and then his son Mohammad Taqi and after him his son Ali Naqi and after him his son Hassan Askari and lastly his son Mohammad Mehdi will be the Imam.
The next question of the Nasal was that how Ali, Hassan and Hussain will pass away from this world. The holy prophet said Ali will die with the result of hitting of sword, Hassan will be given poison and then Hussain will be slaughtered. Again he questioned what will be their status in the next world the Holy Prophet replied in the Heaven with me in my status. Upon this Jew Nasal said that I give the evidence that there is no God except that one and Mohammad (A.S.) is his prophet and all above mentioned people are your Ousia, I myself have gone through these facts in the books of former prophets and our prophet Mussa took the oath of all these facts from us. Further Hazrat Mussa told us that in the last era one prophet named Mohammed and Ahmed will come , he will be the last messenger of God. He will have twelve Ousia the first will be his cousin and then two brothers . The ummah will kill the first wasi with sword the second will be given poison and the third will be slaughtered with all his relatives and friends . Then there will be the nine Imams in the generation of third one and these are equal to the number of Usbate. The holy prophet asked that do you know the Usbate. He replied yes I know them they were twelve person the first of them was Ladhe bin Barchia who disappeared and again appeared the Holy Prophet said that my eleventh son will also disappear and such a time will come that only the name of Islam will be left , at a such a critical time God will permit him to reappear and to re-dominate Islam again, the good news of well be for those who will follow and help him and those will oppose him will face ultimate destruction .
6:- Ref :- Sawaeqe Mohrka Ibn Hajar Macci P- 105
The Holy Prophet said " Oh people High respect, The Fazal and The Sharaf is for the holy race of Prophet of God. therefore do not put yourselves in wrong and deceiving position. " Every one can now think and imagine that while Holy Prophet was saying " Oh People " To whom was he addressing?
7:- Ref :- Sawaeqe Mohrke Chpt. 11, P-79.
Addressing to the people ( Sahabah Karam ) Holy Prophet said " Look ! Do not get ahead and do not get back from my Ahlal Bait other wise you will put your- self in the state of destruction " It means that in every condition you have to follow them if you lead or quit them in both the condition you will be the looser, ( the history clearly indicates that the people adapted both the extremes.)
8:- Ref :- Sheik Yousf Nabahani in a book Saraf-n- Nabuwa P- 31.
A group of people narrated from Hazarat Abu Zar that Holy Prophet said " Take my Ahlal Bait as the head is for the body and eyes are for the head and head is only guided by the eyes to walk on the straight route "
9:- Ref:- Sauti ( Ahya e Mellat ) , Nabahai (Al-Arbaheen ) , Ibn Hajar (Sawaeke Mohrka)
Holy Prophet said " The love of Ahlal Bait is must for you because if any one who meets the God in a state that one's loves us the God will gift him Heaven due to our Shafa'at, I swear to God that no one will be benefited by his good deeds till he loves and cares of our status "
10 ________Ref :- With the above first two references Tibrani and Hakim narrated :
Holy Prophet said " If any one keeps standing between Hajre Aswad and Maqam-e-Ibraheem for his whole life and prays and fasts but has enmity with Ahlal Bait will be thrown in the Hell.
