Who are the members of the Ahlul-Bayt?
Initially it ought to be clear that the term ‘’Ahlul-Bayt’’ is a Qur'anic, Hadith (tradition), and theological expression meaning the family of the Islam Prophet(s). Of course The term "Ahl" lexically means closeness and love, and the meaning of "Bayt" is place for living.
The names of Ahlul-Bayt members?
In Arabic language,
"Ahlu Al bayt" are the ones living in the bayt(house). Ahlu(people of)
"Ahlu al-Rajul" are the family of Rajul(man)
"Ahlu al Bayt" refers to the prophet Muhammed (PBUH)
scholars have differed on who are Ahlul-Bayt:
1- His wives and children ONLY, they used this aya from the quran as a proof
A Sunni view on the issue is that these are not accurate.
First, it is not established that the prophet gave Fadak to her.
Contrary to that there are hadith stating that she asked for it during the prophet's lifetime but the prophet refused her request. See e.g. [Sunnan Abi Dawood; Kitab Al-Kharaj, Wal-Fai' Wal-Imarah; hadith 2966].
Abu Bakr refused the ...
Actually It is so because at that time Zaid(May Allah be pleased with him) was known among people as Zaid bin Muhammad. If you know the history, you may know that Zaid was servant of Muhammad(SAW) given to Him as a gift by Hazrat Khadeeja(May Allah be pleased with her). Prophet(SAW) later said that Zaid is my son(begotten son) because Zaid preferred Muhammad(...
I have read this in Sahih Muslim, where Hussain bin Sabra asked the same question to the Prophet's companion, Zaid bin Arqam. Here is the answer to the same question.
Bk 31, Number 5920:
Yazid b. Hayyan reported, I went along with Husain b. Sabra
and 'Umar b. Muslim to Zaid b. Arqam and, as we sat by his
side, Husain said to him: Zaid. you have been ...
Zakat is forbidden for the Bani Hashim, rather their needs are to be met from khums:
إن هذه الصدقات إنما هي أوساخ الناس وإنها لا تحل لمحمد ولا لآل محمد
This charity is the dirt of the people, and it is not permissible for Muhammad
nor for the family of Muhammad
Some scholars have considered the above prohibition to be absolute ...
The following answer does not intend to hurt the feelings of our dear brothers and sisters of Ahle Sunna as we are all followers of the same religion.
Ayatollah Sayed Ali Sistani, the great Shia Marja in Iraq, said,
“Shiites should defend Sunnis’ social and political rights before
defending their own rights, and we call [everyone] for unity. As I
Well 1st i think there is a difference between sunni and shia view of ahl-ul-Bayt (beginning on who are included in ahl-ul-Bayt). And as far as i know most sunni people have a big respect for ahl-ul-Bayt and try their best to treat them well.
Now, if you mean by early days the time of the rightly guided Caliphs then at that time there was AFAIK no ...
The statement "Keep light and overtake" references two factors in relevance to one subject. In the prior sentence Imam Ali is informing you about the journey you're on. The aim of reward/punishment is ahead in this journey and there is no going backwards or any other direction because of the driving force that limits your choices of where ...
Ahlul Bayt of Prophet Muhammad are regarded as the same as cloak people, namely: Ali, Fatimah, Hassan and Hussain (a.s.). There are many hadiths (Islamic traditions) which have been narrated by both Shia and Sunni scholars, and prove the issue.
In order to elucidate the issue, it ought to be paid heed that the word/phrase Ahl al-Bayt is considered as a Qur'...
Generally speaking, when using the words ahl al-bayt (people of the house, Arabic: أهل البيت), the wives and daughters are included.
When Allah ﷻ sent the angels over to Ibrāhīm and they gave him and his wife the good tidings of a baby (Prophet Is'hāq), the angels set the mercy of Allah on the people of the house to mean Ibrāhīm and his wife, Sārah:
Banu Hashim are excluded from receiving Zakat based on:
... Verily these sadaqat are the impurities of people, and they are not permissible for Muhammad (may peace be upon him), and for the family of Muhammad. ... (See for example in Sahih Muslim)
Leave it, leave it, throw it; don't you know that we do not eat the sadaqa? (Sahih Muslim)
This ruling ...
Even if i do agree with @Rehan Ullah's answer.
I would like to add that indeed in some sahaba's -earlier- Quran copies the Verse (33/6)
was read "وأزواجه أمهاتهم وهو أب لهم" by Ubay ibn Ka'ab (May Allah be pleased with him) which means -be careful this is my own translation- (and his wife are their mothers and he's a father for them) and "النبي أولى ...
Imam ad-Dhahbi quoted in his short biography of Fatimah bint Rassuli Allah () فاطمة بنت رسول الله -in Siiyar a'laam an-Nubalaa' سير أعلام النبلاء the following:
In the following I'm translating from Arabic language. As these translations are of my own take them with the necessary care.
وقال ابن عبد البر : دخل بها بعد وقعة أحد . فولدت له الحسن ، والحسين ، ...
It is definitely wrong.
Shia believes After Fatima Al-Zahra (Salamullah Allayha) passed away, his husband Imam Ali (Allayhe Assalam) washed her body at night (gave her Ghusl) and buried her at night. In one narration Imam Ali (Allayhe Assalam) dug 40 graves for her so that no one discovers her grave and it remains unknown till now.
Since the Shi'a believe these 14 persons are chosen by Allah (t.) the answer to why is not trivial. You're asking: Why did Allah choose these individuals and not others. Allahu a'lam.
Shias believe these 13 individuals are the best human beings after the Prophet (s.). You could also ask why was Muhammad (s.) chosen to be the last prophet and not prophet Isa ...
Sadly the original post has been changed a few times and I wonder if the answer of @Noor would be the same by now.
I think all Muslims do agree that the first lady among ahl al-Bayt which accepted Islam is our prophets () wife Khadija bint Khuwaylid() one may differ on whom it was among men (even among the Sunni's there are three plausible options), maybe ...
He means make yourself light by keeping away from the "Burduns" of the human desires (Source). These attire sins and sinful acts however these are regarded to be "light" on the scale when compared to good deeds they can let you lose your aim or at least lose to track them (for a while)!
In this article which seems to contradict the major understanding of ...
All Praise to Allah Subhanahu wa Taala and blessings of Him be on Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him His family and companions,
Well it is known that all the wives of Rasulullah salAllahu alayhi wasallam were living in a separate house which were like simple individual room or chambers but separate from each other.
It is mentioned in this book that Ayesha ...
Quran says many Times.. ATEE-ULLAH-A WA ATEE-URRASOOL (Follow ALLAH and Follow Prophet Muhammad SAAW)
Quran Never said.. follow your aalims.
In Non Shiasm .. Muslims must follow only what Prophet Muhammad(SAAW) has told. if you are listening any Aalim or Imaam listen him carefully. But never apply all blindly upon yourself.
