The Qu'ran clearly includes the Prophet 's wives as part of Ahlul Bayt. However, the shia hate several of The Prophet 's wives. Also, there are dozens of members of Ahlul Bayt that the shia choose to ignore, such as Imam Zaid and The Prophet's daughters. The shia chose 11 successors of The Prophet - who were great Ulemaa. However, there is no evidence as to why these specific 11 were 'the chosen Imams'. The shia even attack the brother of Hasan Al-Askari , Jafar and call him 'kathab' = liar (astaghfirullah).
The shia should take note: nobody disagrees with hadith al-thaqilain. However, if you really want to follow Ahlul Bayt and revere them, as we all do, then you must revere ALL Ahlul Bayt, not just a chosen few to suit your preferences. You are neglecting many other great members of Ahlul Bayt.. and even attack some in a similar way that you attack the sahaba (see above).
