Loving the Ahlul-Bayt

May 27, 2015 Comments Off on Loving the Ahlul-Bayt

We love the Ahlul-Bayt, Alayhimus Salam, because we are following the best example of the Messenger of Allah, ﷺ when he advises us:

“Love Allah for what He nourishes you with of His Blessings, and love me due to this love of Allah, and love my Ahlul-Bayt due to your having love of me.” [1]

Caliph Abu Bakr as-Siddiq said:

“Know that the way towards pleasing the Prophet ﷺ is by doing good/giving due rights to his family.” [2]

‘Abdullah ibn Abbas narrated that the Prophet ﷺ said,

“On the day of Judgment [Qiyamah] every relationship and kinship will come to an end except my relationship and kinship”. [3]
