  1. This thread is meant to explore the numerical relationship between the quran and ahl alabayt AS. The basis of research is formed as per Hadith thqalayn as both of them are inseparable. 1. The calculations regarding names of the prophet and Ahl al-Bayt (p) ie 5 personalities are mentioned below: محمد = 4 حروف (م ح م د) Jafr Number =92, Jafr prime = 2 , Jafr sum =4278, Jafr sum prime = 21 -> 3 علي = 3 حروف (ع ل ی) Jafr Number =110 Jafr prime = 2 Jafr sum = 6105, Jafr sum prime = 12 -> 3 ) فاطمة = 5 حروف ف ا ط م ہ Jafr Number =135 Jafr prime = 9 Jafr sum =9180 , Jafr sum prime = 18 -> 9 حسن = 3 حروف (ح س ن) Jafr Number =118 Jafr prime = 1 Jafr sum =7021, Jafr sum prime = 10 -> 1 حسين = 4 حروف (ح س ی ن) Jafr Number =128 Jafr prime = 2 Jafr sum =8256, Jafr sum prime = 21 -> 3 Example: Name Muhammad , Jafr Number based on Jafr numerals is 92. (Jafr numerals can be seen from the given link https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abjad_numerals) Jafr prime = 92 -> 9+2 =11 -> 1+1 = 2 Jafr sum = 1+2+3+…..+91+92 = 4278 Jafr sum prime = 4+2+7+8 = 21-> 2+1=3 Total Jafr sum prime = 3+3+9+1+3 = 19 for 5 personalities Total letters in names of 5 personalities = 4+3+5+3+4 = 19 for 5 personalities This is an important indication that the names of 5 have been placed in numerical balance by Allah swt Further 19 is reduced as prime = 1+9 =10 ->1+0=1 Also Total Jafr prime = 2+2+9+1+2 =16 ->1+6 = 7 If we see in the Quran, first Sura (sr No. 1) is Sura Al-Fateha and it consists of exactly 7 number of verses. The first verse out of these 7 verses is Bismillah. The numerical analysis of its letters is carried out and given below: بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمَٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ ب س م ا ل ل ہ ا ل ر ح م ن ا ل ر ح ی م The total letters used in this important verse of Quran is equal to 19 which is the same numbers of letters used in the names of 5 personalities. Surprising. 2. Al Qadr Sura No. 97, verses 5 Al Feel Sura No.105, verses 5 Al Masad Sura No. 111, verses 5 Al Falaq Sura No. 113, verses 5 Al Maeda Sura No. 5, verses 120 There are 4 Sura in the quran that have exactly 5 verses. There is one Sura placed at Sr, No. 5 as given above. This is the indication that 1 out of 5 is different or 4 are similar. This is exactly comes true for 5 personalities that 4 are male and one is Female in appearance in Panjtan. 3. Al Fateha No. 01, verses 7 Al Baqra Sura No. 02, verses 286 Ale Imran Sura No. 03, verses 200 Al Nissa Sura No. 04, verses 176 Al Maeda Sura No. 05, verses 120 First five Sura of the quran are taken and their verses are mentioned above. There is only 1 Sura that has name as “Al-Nissa” (woman). The name Fatima SA is the only female in appearance out of 5 personalities and 4 others are male in appearance. 4. From the first Sura of Quran named as “Al Fateha” the verse number 5 is given below: إِيَّاكَ نَعْبُدُ وَإِيَّاكَ نَسْتَعِينُ ا ی ا ک ن ع ب د و ا ی ا ک ن س ت ع ی ن This verse contains exactly 19 letters. “Thee do we serve and Thee do we beseech for help.” The basis of the worship and help from Allah swt is the love and following the prophet and his Ahl albaayt. There are 12 dots in this verse used for conveying its meaning of the text which is the same count as per number of imams from the pure progeny of the prophet Muhamamd saww.. 5. The Suras numerically resembling the 5 personalities are mentioned below: محمد = 4 حروف (م ح م د) Jafr Number =92 The Sura at sr. no. 92 is named as Al Layl and it has 21 verses. 92+21 = 113 ->1+1+3 = 5 علي = 3 حروف (ع ل ی) Jafr Number =110 The Sura at sr Number 18 is named as Al Kahef with 110 verses. 18+110 ->128 which is jafr Number for name Hussain AS. The Sura at sr. no. 110 is named as Al Nasr and it has exactly 3 verses. فاطمة = 5 حروف ف ا ط م ہ) ( Jafr Number =135 The Sura at sr. no. 20 is named as Taha (طہ) and it has exactly 135 verses. حسن = 3 حروف (ح س ن) Jafr Number =118 The Sura at sr. no. 23 is named as Al Mominoon and it has exactly 118 verses. حسين = 4 حروف (ح س ی ن) Jafr Number =128 The Sura at sr. no. 16 is named as Al Nehal and it has exactly 128 verses.

  2. Following the Prophet: The following verses describe the instruction to follow the Prophet saaw. لَقَدْ كَانَ لَكُمْ فِي رَسُولِ اللَّهِ أُسْوَةٌ حَسَنَةٌ لِمَنْ كَانَ يَرْجُو اللَّهَ وَالْيَوْمَ الْآخِرَ وَذَكَرَ اللَّهَ كَثِيرًا Ye have indeed in the Apostle of Allah a beautiful pattern of (conduct) for anyone whose hope is in Allah and the Final Day and who engages much in the praise of Allah. (33:21) يُحْبِبْكُمُ ٱللَّهُ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ ۗ وَٱللَّهُ غَفُورٌۭ رَّحِيمٌۭ َ فَٱتَّبِعُونِى قُلْ إِن كُنتُمْ تُحِبُّونَ ٱللَّه : Say: "If ye do love Allah follow me: Allah will love you and forgive you your sins for Allah is Oft-Forgiving Most Merciful." (3:31) قُلْ أَطِيعُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَٱلرَّسُولَ ۖ فَإِن تَوَلَّوْا۟ فَإِنَّ ٱللَّهَ لَا يُحِبُّ ٱلْكَٰفِرِينَ {٣٢} 003:032 Say, ‘Obey Allah and the Messenger.’ But if they turn away, indeed Allah does not like the faithless. يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوٓا۟ أَطِيعُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُۥ وَلَا تَوَلَّوْا۟ عَنْهُ وَأَنتُمْ تَسْمَعُونَ {٢٠} 008:020 O you who have faith! Obey Allah and His Messenger, and do not turn away from him while you hear [him]. قُلْ أَطِيعُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُوا۟ ٱلرَّسُولَ ۖ فَإِن تَوَلَّوْا۟ فَإِنَّمَا عَلَيْهِ مَا حُمِّلَ وَعَلَيْكُم مَّا حُمِّلْتُمْ ۖ وَإِن تُطِيعُوهُ تَهْتَدُوا۟ ۚ وَمَا عَلَى ٱلرَّسُولِ إِلَّا ٱلْبَلَٰغُ ٱلْمُبِينُ {٥٤} 024:054 Say, ‘Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger.’ But if you turn your backs, [you should know that] he is only responsible for his burden and you are responsible for your own burden, and if you obey him, you will be guided, and the Messenger’s duty is only to communicate in clear terms. ۞ يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوٓا۟ أَطِيعُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُوا۟ ٱلرَّسُولَ وَلَا تُبْطِلُوٓا۟ أَعْمَٰلَكُمْ {٣٣} 047:033 O you who have faith!

And be patient; indeed Allah is with the patient. وَأَطِيعُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُوا۟ ٱلرَّسُولَ ۚ فَإِن تَوَلَّيْتُمْ فَإِنَّمَا عَلَىٰ رَسُولِنَا ٱلْبَلَٰغُ ٱلْمُبِينُ {١٢} 064:012 Obey Allah and obey the Messenger; but if you turn away, then Our Messenger’s duty is only to communicate in clear terms. يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ لَا تُقَدِّمُوا۟ بَيْنَ يَدَىِ ٱللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِۦ ۖ وَٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ ۚ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ سَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌۭ {١} 049:001 O you who have faith! Do not venture ahead of Allah and His Messenger, and be wary of Allah. Indeed Allah is all-hearing, all-knowing. How to Follow the Prophet?: First Example: Mubahila The Verse of Malediction (Mubahala). فَمَنْ حَاجَّكَ فِيهِ مِن بَعْدِ مَا جَاءَكَ مِنَ الْعِلْمِ فَقُلْ تَعَالَوْا نَدْعُ أَبْنَاءَنَا وَأَبْنَاءَكُمْ وَنِسَاءَنَا وَنِسَاءَكُمْ وَأَنفُسَنَا وَأَنفُسَكُمْ ثُمَّ نَبْتَهِلْ فَنَجْعَل لَّعْنَتَ اللَّهِ عَلَى الْكَاذِبِينَ "But whoever disputes with you (O' Muhammad) in this matter after what has come to you of knowledge, then say: Come let us call our sons and your sons and our women and your women and our selves (anfus) and your selves, then let us beseech Allah and invoke His curse upon the liars" Our'an(3:61) This verse points towards an epoch-making event, narrated by all historians and commentators; an event which revealed to the Muslims how near and dear the progeny of the Prophet are to Allah the Exalted. This event which clearly marked out the distinct status of the AhIul-Bait, is known in the annals of Islamic history as Mubahala, that is invoking Allah's malediction on the liars. Historians and exegists have narrated the event as follows: A deputation (5) from the Christians of Najran came to the Prophet of Islam to argue the merits of their faith. The Holy Prophet advanced to them arguments showing that Jesus the son of Mary was a human-being and a Prophet, and it was blasphemy to regard him as a son of God, because Allah the Exalted is high above all such human characteristics. It was, when the Prophet having argued to the point fully and convincingly, found them still deliberately persisting in their false belief in the deity of Prophet Jesus. that Allah revealed this verse. It was a challenge to the Christians, to pray and invoke Allah that the curse may overtake the party that insisted upon falsehood. Early the next morning on the 24th of the lunar month of Dhilhijja, the Prophet in accordance with Allah's command came out to the meeting grounds, carrying Husain in his arms and leading Hasan (our sons) by his hand, followed by his beloved daughter Fatima (our women), behind whom came Ali (our selves) carrying the banner of Islam. Seeing the Prophet was accompanied by his immediate family and convinced that Muhammad (s.a.w.) was truthful, otherwise he would not have dared to bring his dearest of kin along, the Christians hacked away from the maledictory confrontation and agreed to pay Jizya instead. Zamakhshari says in his book Al-Kashshaf: That (when this verse was revealed) the Prophet asked the Christians to a Mubahala (malediction) to invoke the curse of Allah on the liars. The Christians held a discourse among themselves that night. in which their leader Abdul Massih stated his views as follows: "By God, O Christians, you know that Muhammad is a God-sent Prophet, who has brought to you the final message from your Lord. By God, no nation ever dared to challenge a Prophet for malediction, but woe befell them. Not only will they perish hut their children will also be afflicted with the curse". Saying that it is better to reach a compromise with the Prophet. rather than challenge his truth and perish, Abdul Massih advised his party to stop hostilities and retain their religion, by submitting to the Prophet's terms. "So if you persist (for a confrontation), we will all perish. But if you want to keep your faith you should refuse (to have a showdown) and remain as you are. Therefore make peace with the man (the Prophet) and return to your land'. Zamakhshari continues: "the next day the Prophet. carrying Husain in his arms, leading Hasan by the hand; followed by his daughter Fatima, behind whom came Ali, entered the appointed place and was heard saying (to his AhluI-Bait): "When I invoke Allah, you all say: Amen. The pontiff of Najran on seeing the Prophet and his AhluI-Bait, addressed the Christians: "O' Christians, I am beholding such faces that if God wishes (for their sake), He would move mountains from their places. Do not accept their challenge for Mubahala for if you do you would all perish and there would remain no Christian on the face of the earth till the Day of Resurrection.' Heeding his advice the Christians said to the Prophet: "O Abul Qasim, we decided not to hold Mubahala with you. You keep your religion and we will keep ours. The Prophet told them: "If you refuse to hold (Mubahala), then submit, (accept Islam) and you will receive what the Muslims receive, and contribute what the Muslims contribute. . The Christians saying they had no desire to fight the Arabs. proposed a treaty asking for peace, and freedom from forced compulsion to make them forsake their religion. In return they agreed to pay the Muslims an annual tribute of two thousand suits; one thousand of which in the month of Safar and the remaining one thousand in Rajab, besides thirty coats of iron mail. Accepting the proposal the Prophet remarked: "By the One Who has my soul in His hand, death was looming large over the people of Najran. (Had they dared to accept the challenge of Mubahala'). They would have been transformed into apes and swines, and the valley would have been set ablaze. Allah would have destroyed Najran with its people, sparing not even the birds on the treetops, and before the passing of the year the Christians would have all been dead." Continuing his comments on the Mubahala verse', Zamakhshari lays emphasis on the position of the AhluI-Bait by quoting the following narration from the Prophet's wife Aa'isha: He mentioned them Ahllul -Bait before mentioning the word selves in order to highlight their position and their proximity (to Allah), and to stress their preference to selves', which could be sacrificed for them. ..There is no stronger evidence than this regarding the merits of the Ahl aI-Kisa(6). It is the proof of the truthfulness of the Prophet's mission, because nobody however biased has narrated that they(the Christians) dared to accept that (the challenge for Mubahala) . Fakhruddin Razi in his al-Tafsir al-Kabir', gives an identical narration and after having stated what Zamakhshari has said; adds: Mind, that all interpreters (of the Qur'an) and narrators (of the Prophet's traditions) are unanimous about the authenticity of this narration . Allama Muhammad Husain Tabataba'i the renowned modern day exegist, in his monumental commentary on the Holy Qur'an, Tafsir al-Mizan', referring to the verse those through whom Allah has cursed their enemies', says that these are none other than the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.) Ali, Fatima, Hasan and Husain. He adds ...this narration has been related by all traditionists and recorded by all compilers (of traditions) in their collections, such as Muslim in his Sahih' and Tirmidhi in his Sahih', besides historians have confirmed it as well. Ever since the interpreters have related it without any objection or doubt, including such famous traditionists and historians as Tabari, Abul Fida, Ibn Kathir, Suyuti and others.' Thus in the light of the above discussions it is clear that all interpreters have unanimously defined the Ahlul-Bait as Ali, Fatima, Hasan and Husain. The very mention of them in the Mubahala verse, which makes them the means for invoking Allah is a clear pointer to their lofty and sanctified stature. The fact that Allah asked His Messenger to bring these pure personalities along with him to the malediction grounds is once again a clear proof of their purity. The challenge for invoking Allah's curse on His enemies, discloses in what high esteem they were held by the Almighty. Since the confrontation was between truth and falsehood, two directly opposite currents, the situation demanded that faith be represented by its very best, upon whom the whole edifice of Islam stood. And no one was more qualified to accompany the Prophet to Mubahala, on whose outcome hung the fate of Islam, than his Ahlul-Bait: the torch of guidance and virtue. The Almighty -bearers Allah, Who Himself had bestowed on them the mantle of purity earlier in the Holy Qur'an, once again made them the cynosure of all eyes, proving the truth of Islam through them. In fact, He, the All-wise was indicating to the faint-hearted Muslims that the continuation of divine mission will not stop with the Seal of the Prophets, but will continue through his infallible progeny. No invocation of theirs would be ignored and no word of theirs could be belied; even mountains would move, by their mere utterances as was well understood by the Christians. This itself is sufficient to remove the last lingering doubts from the minds of certain segments about these immaculate personalities; the result of centuries of hypocrisy, which misled many simple souls. With the clearing of the mist, the picture gradually emerges all the more vivid that what we have received from the Ahlul-Bait; of teachings, thoughts, interpretations, narrations, jurisprudence etc... .is the pure unpolluted nectar of Islam, bequeathed by the Prophet and sincerely preserved and conveyed to the Muslims by his Household. Through them the Qur'an challenged the enemies of Islam, and made it clear for all time that those who oppose them are nothing but liars, deserving to be cursed and punished: ...invoke the curse of Allah upon those who lie.' Had it not been for their eternal truth and unwavering steadfastness, Allah would never have bestowed upon them such an honour, and the Qur'an would not have spoken of them in such glowing terms. There are some minute linguistic points in this verse which are worthy of note. This group (Ali, Fatima, Hasan and Husain) is used as the adjunct, and the Prophet as the possessor, in a genetive term, as is seen in our sons', our women' and ourselves'. Had not the Prophet taken Fatima along with him, people would have thought that our women' means the Prophet's wives and our sons' refers to Fatima though she was a female and ourselves' indicates his sacred self alone. But by taking along only these four and no one else besides the Prophet was showing the Muslims, that the best example for women is Fatima and the best example for boys are Hasan and Husain, according to the Qur'an's wordings, which also delicately used the word our selves for Ali, thereby pointing to his close proximity with the Prophet, and solving the question of succession once and for all. Verse of Mubahila فَمَنْ حَاجَّكَ فِيهِ مِن بَعْدِ مَا جَاءَكَ مِنَ الْعِلْمِ فَقُلْ تَعَالَوْا نَدْعُ أَبْنَاءَنَا وَأَبْنَاءَكُمْ وَنِسَاءَنَا وَنِسَاءَكُمْ وَأَنفُسَنَا وَأَنفُسَكُمْ 1. Prophet Muhammad SAWW 2. Imam Ali AS 3. Fatima Al Zahra SA 4. Imam Hassan AS 5. Imam Hussain Ahl albayat are true followers of the foot step of the prophet to declare the victory and truth of the religion. No one else including wives and Companions have this status. Second Example: Verse of Purification إِنَّمَا يُرِيدُ اللَّهُ لِيُذْهِبَ عَنْكُمُ الرِّجْسَ أَهْلَ الْبَيْتِ وَيُطَهِّرَكُمْ تَطْهِيرًا 1. Narrated Aisha: One day the Prophet (S) came out afternoon wearing a black cloak (upper garment or gown; long coat), then al-Hasan Ibn ‘Ali came and the Prophet accommodated him under the cloak, then al-Husayn came and entered the cloak, then Fatimah came and the Prophet entered her under the cloak, then ‘Ali came and the Prophet entered him to the cloak as well. Then the Prophet recited: "Verily Allah intends to keep off from you every kind of uncleanness O’ People of the House (Ahlul-Bayt), and purify you a perfect purification (the last sentence of Verse 33:33)." Sahih Muslim, Chapter of virtues of companions, section of the virtues of the Ahlul-Bayt of the Prophet (S), 1980 Edition Pub. in Saudi Arabia, Arabic version, v4, p1883, Tradition #61. 2- "The Tradition of Cloak”which is related to Safiyya who was another wife of the Prophet (S). Ja’far Ibn Abi Talib narrated: When the Messenger of Allah noticed that a blessing from Allah was to descent, he told Safiyya (one of his wives): "Call for me! Call for me!”Safiyya said: "Call who, O the Messenger of Allah?”He said: "Call for me my Ahlul-Bayt who are ‘Ali, Fatimah, al-Hasan, and al-Husayn.”Thus we sent for them and they came to him. Then the Prophet (S) spread his cloak over them, and raised his hand (toward sky) saying: "O Allah! These are my family (Aalee), so bless Muhammad and the family (Aal) of Muhammad.”And Allah, to whom belong Might and Majesty, revealed: "Verily Allah intends to keep off from you every kind of uncleanness O’ People of the House (Ahlul-Bayt), and purify you a thorough purification (Qur’an, the last sentence of Verse 33:33)". References: • al-Mustadrak by al-Hakim, Chapter of "Understanding (the virtues) of Companions, v3, p148. The author then wrote: "This tradition is authentic (Sahih) based on the criteria of the two Shaikhs (al-Bukhari and Muslim)." 3-Another version of the "Tradition of Cloak”is written in Sahih al-Tirmidhi, which is narrated in the authority of Umar Ibn Abi Salama, the son of Umm Salama (another wife of Prophet), which is as follows: The verse "Verily Allah intends to ... (33:33)" was revealed to the Prophet (S) in the house of Umm Salama. Upon that, the Prophet gathered Fatimah, al-Hasan, and al-Husayn, and covered them with a cloak, and he also covered ‘Ali who was behind him. Then the Prophet said: "O’ Allah! These are the Members of my House (Ahlul-Bayt). Keep them away from every impurity and purify them with a perfect purification.”Umm Salama (the wife of Prophet) asked: "Am I also included among them O Apostle of Allah?”the Prophet replied: "You remain in your position and you are toward a good ending." Reference: Sahih al-Tirmidhi, v5, pp 351,663 4. In the tradition of al-Hakim the wording the last question and answer is as follows: Umm Salama said: "O Prophet of Allah! Am I not one of the members of your family?”The Holy Prophet replied: "You have a good future but only these are the members of my family. O Lord! The members of my family are more deserving." Reference: al-Mustadrak, by al-Hakim, v2, p416 Also the wording reported by al-Suyuti and Ibn al-Athir is as follows: Umm Salama said to the Holy Prophet: "Am I also one of them?”He replied: "No.You have your own special position and your future is good." Reference: • Usdul Ghabah, by Ibn al-Athir, v2, p289 • Tafsir al-Durr al-Manthoor, by al-Suyuti, v5, p198 Thus confirming that the traditions narrated by the wives of the prophet indicate that Fatima, Ali, Hasan, and Hussain are ahl albayt of the prophet. Also it is confirmed that the wives are not covered under the scope of the verse of purification. Verse of Purification for Prophet and Ahl albayat إِنَّمَا يُرِيدُ اللَّهُ لِيُذْهِبَ عَنْكُمُ الرِّجْسَ أَهْلَ الْبَيْتِ وَيُطَهِّرَكُمْ تَطْهِيرًا 1. Prophet Muhammad Saww 2. Imam Ali AS 3. Fatima Al Zahra SA 4. Imam Hassan AS 5. Imam Hussain AS Ahl albayat are true Followers of the prophet as per verse of Mubahila. They followed the foot step of the prophet to declare the victory and truth of the religion. They also share the verse of Purification to declare their purification ie the same level of purification as that of the prophet himself covered in the verse of purification. No one else including wives and companions share this status. Third Eevnt: Verse of Muwadah: قُل لَّا أَسْأَلُكُمْ عَلَيْهِ أَجْرًا إِلَّا الْمَوَدَّةَ فِي الْقُرْبَىٰ It has been widely reported by the Sunni commentators of the Holy Qur’an that: Ibn Abbas narrated: When the above verse (42:23) was revealed, the companions asked: "O’ the Messenger of Allah! Who are those near kin whose love Allah has made obligatory for us?”Upon that the Prophet (S) said: "‘Ali, Fatimah, and their two sons.”He (S) repeated this sentence thrice. References: 1.

References: • Dhakha’ir al-Uqba, by Muhibbuddin al-Tabari, p26 • al-Sirah, by al-Mala The Messenger of Allah (S) said: "I advice you to be kind to my Ahlul-Bayt for verily I will dispute you about them on the day of Judgment, and whoever I dispute him shall enter the Fire.”He (S) also said: "One who regards me by regarding my Ahlul-Bayt, he has taken a promise from Allah (to enter the Paradise)." References: • al-Tabaqat, by Ibn Sa’d • al-Sirah, by al-Mala • al-Sawa’iq al-Muhriqah, by Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Ch. 11, section 1, p231 Furthermore, al-Kateeb and Ibn Hajar narrated on the authority of Anas Ibn Malik saying: The Prophet (S) said: "The title of the Book (Saheefah) of believer is love of ‘Ali Ibn Abi Talib." References: • Tarikh, by al-Khateeb al-Baghdadi • al-Sawa’iq al-Muhriqah, by Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Ch. 9, section 2, p193 Thus for following the prophet we need to follow their true followers Ahl albayt kept pure by the verse of purification and they have been following the true footsteps of the prophet. The Prophet Declared to follow his Ahl albayat: The Holy Prophet (pbuh) said it at Arafat, in front of all the Muslims during his Farewell Sermon. . Imam Tirmidhi in his Sunan (Vol. 5, p. 662, no. 3786) records the following tradition: Jabir ibn `Abd Allah said: "I saw the Messenger of Allah - upon whom be God's peace and benedictions - in the course of his hajj pilgrimage on the day of `Arafah. The Prophet (S) was seated on his camel, alQaswa', and was delivering a sermon. I heard him say: 'O people, I am leaving among you that which if you hold on to you shall never go astray: the Book of Allah and my kindred, my household." Imam Tirmidhi states that the same tradition has been narrated by Abu Dharr, Abu Sa`id, Zayd ibn Arqam and Hudhayfah ibn Usayd. FIVE Companions have narrated it, and there is thus absolutely NO doubt about its authenticity. Mullah Ali al-Qari puts it nicely here: Holding firmly onto the Ahl al-Bayt (as in Hadith Thaqalayn) means loving them, defending their rights, acting by their narrations (of the Sunnah) and basing one’s religion upon their words. Mirqat al-Mafatih, Vol. 9, p. 3974 We all know who Mullah Ali al-Qari is of course! He is one of the highest ranking Sunni Imams ever! Shaykh al-Munawi states: The Holy Prophet (pbuh) made the Holy Qur’an and the Ahl al-Bayt his successors and instructed his Ummah to be kind to them both, to place their rights above their own and to hold onto them both in the religion. Fayd al-Qadeer, Vol. 3, p. 20 Shaykh Hasan al-Saqqaf writes: Holding firmly onto the Ahl al-Bayt (as in hadith Thaqalayn) means loving them, defending their rights, copying their manners, following their guidance and conduct, acting by their narrations (of the Sunnah), basing one’s religion upon their opinions, statements and jurisprudence and to prefer them above all others. Sahih Sharh al-Aqidat al-Tahawiyah, p. 653 Ibn al-Athir said: The two (i.e. Qur’an and Ahl al-Bayt) have been called Thaqalayn (i.e. the Two Weighty Things) because holding firmly onto them and acting by their instructions is a heavy (responsibility), and it is said that everything that is weighty is precious. The two have been called Thaqalayn in recognition of their authority and importance. Al-Nihayah fi Gharib al-Hadith, Vol. 1, p. 216 Al-Nawawi said: The scholars said: The two have been called Thaqalayn to show their ealtedness and the greatness of their importance. It has also been said that the word is used to show the heaviness of the (responsibility to) act by their instructions. Sharh Sahih al-Muslim, Vol. 15, p. 180 Al-Zamakhshari states: Jinn and man have been called the Two Weighty Things (i.e. Thaqalaan, as in Qur’an 55:31) because both of them dwell on the earth, and are actually the two most important beings on it. The Qur’an and the itrah have been likened to them because the good health and survival of the religion is dependent upon them, just as the survival of the earth is dependent upon the existence of jinn and man on it. Al-Faiq fi Gharib al-Hadith, Vol. 1, p. 150, Dar al-Kutub al-Alamiyah, Beirut http://www.shiachat.com/forum/topic/234958370-hadith-thaqalayn-genuine-sunni-view/ Narrated Umm Salama: The Messenger of Allah said: "‘Ali is with Qur’an, and Qur’an is with ‘Ali. They shall not separate from each other till they both return to me by the Pool (of Paradise)." References: • al-Mustadrak, by al-Hakim, v3, p124 on the authority of Umm Salama • al-Sawa’iq al-Muhriqah, by Ibn Hajar, Ch. 9, section 2, pp 191,194 • al-Awsat, by al-Tabarani; also in al-Saghir • Tarikh al-Khulafaa, by Jalaluddin al-Suyuti, p173 The above tradition gives evidence to the fact that Imam ‘Ali and Qur’an are non-separable. If we accept the "Qur’an and Sunnah” version to be authentic, then one can conclude that the one who carries the Sunnah of Prophet is Imam ‘Ali since he is the one who has been put beside Qur’an. "Tradition of the Ship”in which the Prophet (S) stated: "Behold! My Ahlul-Bayt are like the Ark of Noah. Whoever embarked in it was SAVED, and whoever turned away from it was PERISHED." إنَّما مثلُ أهلُ بيتي كَمَثل سَفينَةُ نوح مَنْ رَكَبها نَجى و مَنْ تَخَلَّفَ عنها هَلكْ.
