^No matter how you interpret it, but the Quran is enough proof that the title of 'Ummul Momineen' belongs to all wives of Prophet (saw) and that includes Hadrat Ayesha.

w/s

well to me it does matter how one interpret it.

"His wives are their mothers" has been mentioned to say "you should not marry his widows after him at any time" in verse 53 of this surah. There is no significance in it other than the fact that whatever is associated with the Holy Prophet is to be respected and honoured even if the thing or person possesses no merits of his own just like the "black stone" which was fixed by Ibrahim and Ismail in the house of Allah by His command.

would you pls give us some reference (sunnis are prefered) thanx a million.

[Quran 33:23] Of the believers are men who are true to the covenant which they made with Allah: so of them is he who accomplished his vow, and of them is he who yet waits, and they have not changed in the least

Imam Muhammad bin Ali al Baqir said that among the believers who were true in their promise to Allah and had discharged their vow by martyrdom were Hamza bin Abdul Muttalib and Jafar bin Abu Talib, and he who was waiting was Ali ibn abi Talib.

Ali ibn abi Talib said:

"I, my uncle Hamza, my brother Jafar and my cousin Abu Obayda had made a voluntary promise to Allah to always stand our ground against the enemy in the battles fought in the cause of Allah. My comrades have completed their vow. I am waiting my turn."

The Holy Prophet said:

"O Lord, Obayda was martyred at Badr, Hamza at Uhad, Jafar at Muta, but Ali is still with me; let me not depart from this world without a heir to succeed me."

The best and the greatest example of voluntarily, willingly and readily sacrificing lives, property and children in the cause of Allah was shown, set and established in the battle of Karbala in 61 Hijra by Imam Husayn bin Ali. In Karbala every companion of Imam Husayn was vying with one another to give his life in the cause of Allah. At the time of giving permission to every aspirant for martyrdom the Imam said: "Go. We will follow you"; and recited this verse.

It is reported that Imam Ali recited this verse after the martyrdom of Ammar Yasir and Khuzayma ibn Thabit.

^ From the title of the thread: Hazrat Ali (as) Versus Shaikhain Before Quran, An open challenge to Sunni muslims. It is implied that this is some sort of challenge. The first post in the thread points out that:

this thread will continue while making many pages. At last we shall analyze than whose status was higher Hazrat Ali or "Shaikhain" . That also from both sources.

Are there any Sunnis here that are gullible enough to take up such a challenge?! Without even getting too deep into Qur'anic exegesis, it is obvious that Shia scholars have interpreted verses to imply infallibility to Ali (raa). That itself is higher than any sort of praise that Sunni scholars have attributed to the Shaikhain (raa).

In other words, the rules that you have set up yourself don't prove anything since we are both in agreement that Ali is superior to the Shaikhain when using both sources.

So, congratulations on wasting nineteen pages of internet space!

Al Gore would cry.

Why should I? You don't accept my sources. I'd be wasting my time.

Read the first post again. You can present your source and now stopping running away bring some virtue of the Shaikhain. Let us see what you bring...

Shia brothers and Sisters are requested to not to post anything unless Lord_bota bring some verses of Holy Quran in the praise of Shaikhain as per the saying of Prophet (pbuh). Let us all wait

have you ever heard about eysight problem. he of course did a better job than me that told you to read a single post. there were dozens of sunni refernces there and you have noticed only the shia ones? :!!!:

How bout helping me out here instead of having me go through all that?

if you dont care about knowing the truth written in your own books dont do that. although doing so may help you to know at least more about your own sect which has got no harm to you.

this is not a matter of satisfaction it is amtter of reality. like you, we do care about shafa'at from RasoulAllah saww while when we read sunni references we get that it wont go to those who did disservice and evil to Amiralmo'meniin A. that's guide.

[Quran 33:33] And stay in your houses and do not display your finery like the displaying of the ignorance of yore; and keep up prayer, and pay the poor-rate, and obey Allah and His Messenger. Allah only desires to keep away the uncleanness from you, O people of the House! and to purify you a (thorough) purifying.

Obedience to Allah's law sums up all duties. Regular prayer (seeking nearness to Allah) and regular charity (doing good to fellow-creatures) are mentioned as specially symbolical of the religion of Allah, Islam.

The first command in this verse "stay in your houses" was violated by A-isha when she went to Iraq to organise a mischievous campaign against Ali about whom the Holy Prophet said:

"O Ali, you are to me as Harun was to Musa. You are my brother in this world and the hereafter. Your flesh is my flesh, your blood is my blood. You and me are from one and the same light."

In his sermon at Ghadir Khum he invoked Allah to be a friend of those who loved Ali and be an enemy of those who opposed Ali.

Bukhari has recorded in the chapter "What happened in the houses of the Prophet's wives" in the book "Jihad and Travel" of his Sahih, vol. 2, p. 125, that while delivering an address from the pulpit, the Holy Prophet pointed towards A-isha's house and said: "Here lies the scandal; here lies the scandal; here lies the scandal, where the horn of Shaytan would be rising." In the words of Sahih Muslim: "The Prophet came out of the house of A-isha and remarked: "Here is the head of infidelity where the horn of Shaytan will rise." Refer to Sahih Muslim, vol. 2,0.502.

"Verily Allah intends to keep off from you uncleanness, O you Ahl ul Bayt and purify you with a thorough purification" is a separate verse revealed on a particular occasion but placed here. Please refer to Aqa Mahdi Puya's note in the commentary of verses 28 to 32.

The time, occasion and people concerned in connection with the revelation of the above noted verse have been discussed and made known in many authentic books of the Muslim scholars.

The one and only reference available to the commentators is the event of the blanket (Hadith al Kisa).

The "event of the blanket" has been written by the following authors whom the Muslim Ummah acclaim with one voice.

(1) Ahmad bin Muhammad bin Hanbal (241 H) "Musnad" (Egypt: 131 H) pages 259, 285, 292.

(2) Muslim bin Hajjaj Nayshapuri (261 H) Sahih Muslim" (Egypt: 1349) vol. 4, page 116.

(3) Abi Isa Muhammad Tirmidhi (275 or 279 H) "Sahih Tirmidhi" (Sharah ibnul Arabi) (Egypt: 1352 H) vol. 13 pages 200, 248.

(4) Ahmed ibn Shu-ayb Nisa-i (303 H) "Khasa-is" (Egypt: 1348 H) page 4.

(5) Ibn Jarir Tabari (310 H) "Tafsir Tabari" (Jama ul Bayan fi Tafsir il Quran) (Egypt: 1331 H) vol.22, page 5.

(6) Sulayman bin Ahmad Al Tibrani (360 H) "Al Mu-jam Al Saghir" (Dehli: 1311 H), page 34, 75.

(7) Hakim Nayshapuri (405 H) "Al Mustadrak" (Hyderabad Deccan: 1334 H), pages 146, 147, 148.

(8) Yusuf bin Abdullah ibni Abdul Birr (463 H) "Al Isti-ab" (Hyderabad Deccan: 1346 H),

vol. 2, page 460.

9. Ali bin Ahmad Al Wahidi (468 H) "Asbab ul Nuzul" (Egypt: 1315 H) pages 266, 267.

Tirmidhi, Ibn Jarir Tabari, Hakim and Tibrani have related from Ummi Salima that when this verse was revealed the Holy Prophet was under a blanket or mantle along with Ali, Fatimah, Hasan and Husayn, and he declared that his family consisted of only these persons. Ummi Salima, his wife, within whose quarters the revelation came, asked permission to be included in the group under the blanket, but she was politely refused permission. The group is known ever since with the epithet "panjtan pak" or "the holy group of five". These are the persons who were compared by the Holy Prophet with the ark of Nuh wherein those who embarked were saved, while those who sought shelter elsewhere were drowned. Refer to Tafsir Azizi by Shah Abdul Aziz and Tafsir Durr al Manthur by Jalal al Din al Suyuti. In Yanabi al Mawaddat, page 87, Shaykh al Islam writes that A-isha said: "Ayah al Tat-hir refers only to the Holy Prophet, Ali, Fatimah, Hasan and Husayn. No wife of his is included." On page 280 of volume two of Sharah Nuwi of Sahih Muslim it is written that when Zayd bin Arqam was asked whether the wives of the Holy Prophet are included in the Ahl ul Bayt, he said: "By Allah the wives of the Holy Prophet cannot be included in the Ahl ul Bayt at all, because after the pronouncement of divorce the wives are reverted to their parent; and, moreover, sadqah (charity) is prohibited to be given to the Ahl ul Bayt." Also please refer to the commentary of Shura: 42 and Ali Imran : 61 for further confirmation and proofs.

Some commentators report this tradition through A-isha who says that this event took place in her house. So two wives of the Holy Prophet have confirmed that they both were not given permission by the Holy Prophet to come under the blanket, so they could never be described as Ahl ul Bayt.

Thalabi reports that when A-isha was asked as to why she violated the command of Allah "to stay in your houses" by going to the battle of Jamal against Ali, she said:

"It was my fate. I saw the Holy Prophet taking Ali, Fatima, Hasan and Husain under his mantle and heard him saying: 'O Allah, these are my Ahl ul Bayt. Keep off impurity from them.' I asked him: 'Am I not of your Ahl ul Bayt?' He said: 'Go away from here. You are not of my Ahlul Bayt.'"

Abu Dawud and Malik relate from Anas that for six months after the revelation of this verse every morning, while going for fajr salat, the Holy Prophet used to recite this verse at the door of Fatimah's house.

In verse 73 of Hud Sara is addressed as Ahli Bayt, not as the wife of Ibrahim but as the mother of prophet Is-haq, because the state of being a wife of a prophet gives no privilege to a woman as stated above and clearly indicated by the Holy Prophet himself, and decisively proved by the condemnation of the wives of Nuh and Lut.

Innama implies the determined decision or will of Allah. Although the decision of a created being may not take effect at all, but the will of Allah takes immediate effect. There cannot be a slightest gap of time or space in the will of Allah taking effect. When He commands: "Be"; it becomes. Refer to Baqarah: 117; Nahl: 40 Maryolm: 35; Ya Sin 83; Mumin: 68 and Qamar 50. It is not only the will of Allah but the declaration of its effect. Since the Ahl ul Bayt have been thoroughly purified, they remain thoroughly purified for ever. The prayer of Ibrahim in Baqarah: 127 to 129 is prayed to continue the excellence in themselves and in their descendants mentioned in Baqarah: 124. When a quality or attribute is described or mentioned in indefinite sense it refers to the perfect possibility. The purity in this verse is absolute purity. Polytheism (shirk) is described in the Quran as impurity and also the greatest iniquity (refer to Luqman : 13). Refer to the commentary of Baqarah: 124 for the condition that imamah is not bestowed on those who have ever (even once in their lives) worshipped any ghayrallah. All the companions of the Holy Prophet and his wives were polytheists before embracing Islam. Only the Holy Prophet, Ali, Fatimah, Hasan and Husayn were at that time free from the dirt of shirk, therefore they alone could be throughly purified.

Aqa Mahdi Puya says:

(i) Innama (verily or only) signifies exclusive distinction. To emphasise this exclusiveness, the second object of the verb yudh-hiba (keep off)-the phrase ankum (from you)-has been put before the first object rijs (uncleanness); and for further emphasis, the phrase Ahl ul Bayt has been mentioned to explain the pronoun ankum (from you). The grammatical structure of the whole clause indicates that this a unique privilege or distinction granted to the Ahl ul Bayt only, excluding all others.

(ii) The verb yuridu implies that the continuous will or intention of Allah is His creative will or intention, not legislative. To interpret the will as the legislative will as in Ma-idah: 6, distorts the whole fabric of the verse and renders meaningless the exclusive particle and the constructional arrangement. Even then it means that only the Ahl ul Bayt exclusively achieved the standard.

(iii) This verse is a preface to verses 77 to 79 of al Waqi-ah: "Verily this is an honourable (Karim) Quran, in a hidden (preserved) book, which no one can touch save the purified."

(iv) The excellences of Ahl ul Bayt have been openly demonstrated in the event of mubahilah (refer to the commentary of Ali Imran : 61).

(v) The Ahl ul Bayt had only been thoroughly purified by Allah because of their total submission to Allah's will and their state of being always in communion with Allah.

The event of revelation of this verse as reported by Jabir bin Abdullah Ansari, one of the most reliable companions of the Holy Prophet has been mentioned in "Awalim al Ulum" by Shaykh Abdullah bin Nurullah Al-Bahrayni and is reproduced here:-

In the name of Allah, the beneficent, the merciful. It is reported by Jabir bin Abdullah Ansari that Fatimah Zahra said;

One day my father, the messenger of Allah, came into (my house),

and said "Fatimah! Peace be on you." "Peace be on you too." I replied.

"I am not feeling well." He said.

"May Allah keep you safe from weakness, O my father." I prayed.

"Fatimah! Please bring the Yamani blanket and cover me with it." He said.

So I brought the Yamani blanket and covered him with it. I turned my eyes upon his face. It was shining bright like a full moon in its full glory and splendour.

Then, not a moment passed before my son, Hasan, walked in and said:

"Peace be on you, mother."

"Peace be on you too, my dearest darling" I answered.

"I breathe the pure aroma of the messenger of Allah, my grandfather, coming from you!" He observed.

"True; your grandfather is under the blanket." I confirmed.

Hasan went near his grandfather (covered with the blanket) and said:

"Peace be on you, grandfather, the messenger of Allah, may I join you under the blanket?"

"Peace be on you, my son, my companion at the spring of Kawthar, come in."

He went inside the blanket.

Then, not a moment passed, before my son, Husayn, walked in and said: "Peace be on you, mother." "Peace be on you too, my dearest darling" I answered .

"I breathe the pure aroma of the messenger of Allah, my grandfather, coming from you!" He observed .

"True, your grandfather and your brother are under the blanket." I confirmed.

Husayn went near the blanket (under which his grandfather was resting with his brother) and said:

"Peace be on you grandfather, the choice of Allah, may I join you both under the blanket ?"

"Peace be on you, my son, the saviour of my people, come in."

He went inside the blanket.

In that instant Abul Hasan. Amir al Muminin, Ali ibn abi Talib, stepped in and said:

"Peace be on you, O the daughter of the messenger of Allah!"

"Peace be on you too, Abul Hasan, Amir al Muminin." I answered.

"Fatimah, I breathe the pure aroma of my brother, the son of my uncle, the messenger of Allah, coming from you!" He observed.

"True, he is under the blanket with your sons" I confirmed.

Ali went near the blanket and said:

"Peace be on you, the messenger of Allah, may I join you (all) under the blanket?"

"Peace be on you, my brother, the executor of my will, my successor, my standard bearer, come in."

Ali went inside the blanket.

Then I went near the blanket and said:

"Peace be on you, my father, the messenger of Allah, may I join you (all), under the blanket?"

"Peace be on you; my daughter my darling, come in."

I went inside the blanket.

As soon as all of us united under the blanket, my father, the messenger of Allah, held the two ends of the blanket and raised his right hand toward the heaven and said:

"O Allah! These are my Ahl ul Bayt, very special to me, my near and dear ones, my own flesh and blood; whoso annoys them disturbs me; whoso makes them sad makes me unhappy. I make war on those who carry on hostilities against them; I am well disposed towards those who make their peace with them; I oppose those who run counter to them; I favour those who love them. They are from me and I am from them. So send Thy blessings, benefits, mercy, protection and favours on me and on them, and keep off from them uncleanliness, and purify them with a thorough purification."

Thereupon The Almighty and the Glorious Allah said: "O My angels and the dwellers of the heavens, verily I have not created the indeclinable sky, the levelled earth, the bright moon, the resplendent sun, the rotating cosmic system, the flowing seas, and the sailing ship, but for the sake of and in the love of the five souls lying underneath the blanket."

The trusted Jibrail asked:

"O Lord! Who are underneath the blanket?" The Almighty and the Glorious replied:

"They are the 'Ahl ul Bayt' of the Prophet, the custodians of the message; they are-Fatimah, her father, her husband and her sons."

Jibrail (submissively) asked:

"O Lord! May I descend on the earth and be the sixth with them?"

"Yes. I give you permission," said Allah.

The trusted angel, Jibrail, came down (on the earth), and said:

"Peace be on you, O the messenger of Allah. The Highest High says: "Peace be on you. And distinguishes you with greetings and blessings.

He tells you:

'In the name of My majesty and glory, verily, I have not created the indeclinable sky, the levelled earth, the bright moon, the resplendent sun, the rotating cosmic system, the flowing seas, and the sailing ship, but for your sake and in your love.'

And He has also given me permission to be with you. So may I have your permission O the messenger of Allah."

The messenger of Allah replied: "Peace be on you, O the custodian of Allah's revelation, come in and join (us)."

Jibrail came in and joined us under the blanket.

He told my father: "Verily, Allah has sent a revelation to you. He said:

'Verily Allah's wish is but to keep off from you uncleanness, O Ahl ul Bayt, and to purify you (with) a thorough purification.'"

Ali asked my father: "O messenger of Allah, tell us that which makes our assembly under this blanket an event of surpassing excellence before Allah."

The Prophet replied:

"In the name of He who sent me as a truthful prophet, and chose me as a redeemer to convey His message, I declare that no assembly of our followers and devotees, on the earth, where this event is narrated shall spend a single moment but the mercy of Allah will envelop them, then and there; and countless angels of Allah shall pray for the remission of their sins till the group of the faithful disperse."

Ali declared:

"Well then, by the Lord of the Ka-bah, we have attained our end, and have been rendered successful, so also our followers!"

The Holy Prophet said again:

"O Ali! In the name of He who sent me as a truthful Prophet, and chose me as a redeemer to convey His message, I declare that in any of the assemblies of our followers and devotees, on the earth, where this event is narrated, there would not be a grief-stricken among them, but Allah dispels his worries; nor there would be a downcast, among them, but Allah disperses his sorrows; nor would there be a needy, among them, but Allah meets his demands."

Then Ali observed:

"In this case then, by Allah, we have attained our end, and found our happiness; and likewise our followers have attained their end and found their happiness in this world and in the hereafter, in the name of the Lord of the Ka-bah."

In view of the concluding discourse of the Holy Prophet and the conclusive declaration of Imam Ali ibn abi Talib, quoted in the "event of the blanket", it is but natural that the "followers and devotees of Muhammad and ali Muhammad", recite the text of the tradition every day, or at least, once in a week, on the night preceding every Friday.

^ ...but why? I've already agreed with you that Ali is superior to the Shaikhain when we include Shias sources. There is no logical reason to include Sunni sources when we have established this fact.

so every body (including brother Khuram) go on posting your great posts

Thanx for accepting the defeat of Shaikhain. I shall continue my work :)

äøó Çááøóåó æóãóáóÇÆößóÊóåõ íõÕóáøõæäó Úóáóì ÇáäøóÈöíøö íóÇ ÃóíøõåóÇ ÇáøóÐöíäó ÂãóäõæÇ ÕóáøõæÇ Úóáóíúåö æóÓóáøöãõæÇ ÊóÓúáöíãðÇ {56}

[Quran 33:56] Surely Allah and His angels bless the Prophet; O you who believe! call for (Divine) blessings on him and salute him with a (becoming) salutation.

Allah sends His blessings (salawat) on the Holy Prophet. The angels invoke Allah to send His blessings on him. The believers are also commanded to invoke Allah to send His blessings on him. The Muslims asked the Holy Prophet: "How are we to seek blessings on you?" He said: "Say: 'O Allah, send blessings on Muhammad and on the al (children) of Muhammad."

Fakh al Din al Razi writes that the Ahl ul Bayt are at par with the Holy Prophet in five things (one of which is) in invoking the blessings of Allah during prayers, after each tashahud which, if not recited, renders the salat null and void. Bukhari writes in his Sahih, page 127, volume 3 (Egypt edition) that the Holy Prophet said: "Say: 'O Allah send blessings on Muhammad and on ali Muhammad (Ah ul Bayt) just as You blessed Ibrahim and ali Ibrahim'."

Ibn Hajar Makki writes in his Sawa-iq al Muhriqah, on page 87, that the Holy Prophet warned the people not to send batar salawat (salawat which has lost the tail i.e. curtailed). When asked what a batar salawat was he replied: "If you stop at 'Allahumma salli ala Muhammad' You should say: 'Allahumma salli ala Muhammad wa ali Muhammad'"

In religious meetings and gatherings it has become a "fashion" to say in melodious accent: SALLALLAHU ALA YKA YA RASULLILLAH WA SALLAM ALA YKA YA HABIBALLAH which in the light of the abovenoted authentic traditions is deviation from the right path shown by Allah in this verse. When Allah Himself sends blessings (salawat) on the Holy Prophet as made clear by him in various traditions, if some one selects words not approved by the Holy Prophet, it can be described as hypocrisy, punishment of which is eternal damnation in the fire of hell.

Ahmad bin Hanbal writes in his Musnad, volume 6 page 323, that the Holy Prophet covered Ali, Fatimah, Hasan and Husayn with a blanket and said: "O Allah these are my Abl ul Bayt so I invoke You to send Your blessings on Muhammad and ali Muhammad."

Muslim has also related this in his Sahih, in part I of "the book of prayers."

Also refer to Mushkil al Athar by Tahawi (volume 1, page 334), Kanz al Ummal by Ali Muttaqi (volume 7, page 103) and Tafsir Durr al Manthur by Jalaluddin al Suyuti in his interpretation of ayah al tat-hir. He has also quoted the well-known verse composed by Al Shafi-i:

"O Ahl ul Bayt of Allah's messenger, your love is a duty made obligatory upon us in the Quran. It is enough among your great privileges that whoever does not invoke Allah's blessings on you, his prayer (salat) is void."

Ibn Hajar also quoted these lines of Shafi-i on page 88 of his Sawa-iq al Muhriqah, in connection with his interpretation of verse 33 of Ahzab.

It is compulsory to recite salawat whenever the name of the Holy Prophet is mentioned.

If a believer really desires fulfilment of his or her supplication, salawat must be recited before and also at the end of the prayer because in that case whatever the prayer contains in the beginning, in the middle, and in the end will be accepted by Allah as the salawat has covered and encircled the whole supplication, and as salawat is always accepted by Allah (because He Himself recites salawat on the Holy Prophet) the entire prayer is accepted by Him.

Aqa Mahdi Puya says:

The recitation of salawat implies that the believers should not worship the Holy Prophet as a deity. He is the most honoured servant of Allah for whom Allah sends His highest blessings, because he is the first and the foremost in submission and devotion to Allah. The Ahl ul Bayt have been included with him, by his command, because they are also equal to him in submission and devotion to Allah.

In the whole six narration books of the Sunnites there are some narrations indicating that once the Prophet (p.b.u.h.) was asked: "How should we send blessings?" He answered: "Say: 'O' Allah! Bless Muhammad and his descendents'." Sahīh-i-Bukhārī, Tradition No. 5880

It is important to recite Salawāt beside the name of the Prophet (p.b.u.h.). The Messenger of Allah said: "Whoever sends blessing on me in his book and his writing(s), he will be rewarded as long as that Salawāt exists in that writing."

Some Islamic narrations indicate: whoever once sends blessings on Muhammad, Allah will send blessings on him ten times and (also) his ten faults will be concealed.

After the statements mentioned in the previous holy verses, about the protection of the Prophet's respect and that he should not be annoyed, the verses under discussion at first speak about the special love of Allah and His angels to the Prophet (p.b.u.h.) and then He commands the believers in this regard. Then, the Holy Qur'ān explains the evil and painful sequels for those who annoy the Prophet (p.b.u.h.) and finally it mentions the great sin of those who hurt the believers by means of slander. At first, it says:

"Verily Allah and His angels send blessings

on the Prophet, …"

The rank of the Prophet (p.b.u.h.) is so high that Allah, the Creator of the world, and all His angels, who are divinely ordered to manage this world, send blessings on him (p.b.u.h.). Now that it is so, you may come into agreement with this message of the world of existence, as the verse continues saying:

"… O you who believe! Send you also blessings on him,

and you salute him with submission.

The Prophet (p.b.u.h.) is an excellent being of the world of creation. Now that, by the grace of Allah, he is available for you, be careful not to count him cheap. Behold not to forget his rank before Allah and with the angels of all heavens. He is a human being. He has come out from among you, but he is not an ordinary man, he is one in whose entity a world can be found.

[Quran 34:6] And those to whom the knowledge has been given see that which has been revealed to you from your Lord, that is the truth, and it guides into the path of the Mighty, the Praised.

Refer to Ali Imran: 7 and 18; Nisa: 162, Ankabut: 49 and Rad: 43.

The Holy Prophet and his daughter Fatimah and the twelve holy Imams of the Ahl ul Bayt are those who never learnt anything from any mortal in this world, and yet were the fountainheads of knowledge and wisdom, given to them directly by Allah.

[Quran 35:32] Then We gave the Book for an inheritance to those whom We chose from among Our servants; but of them is he who makes his soul to suffer a loss, and of them is he who takes a middle course, and of them is he who is foremost in deeds of goodness by Allah's permission; this is the great excellence.

The opening words say that Allah has bequeathed the holy book, the Quran, to His chosen servants. The chosen servants of Allah could be only those who are rightly guided by their knowledge of the word of Allah. The correct knowledge could be only that which has been given by Allah Himself. Thus it would mean those who are described in the Quran as rasikhunafil ilm, firmly rooted in knowledge. The knowledge of the Quran is given to the thoroughly purified only and verse 33 of Ahzab clearly defines the thoroughly purified, who are none but the Ahl ul Bayt of the Holy Prophet (Quran 33:33). It is to be noted that the honour of being chosen by Allah applies to the whole group, that is, to all the holy Imams of the Ahl ul Bayt to whom the Quran was entrusted This inference is in complete harmony with the well-known declaration of the Holy Prophet commonly known as hadith al thaqalayn.

According to the interpretation of Imam Muhammad bin Ali al Baqir and Imam Jafar bin Muhammad as Sadiq the reference in this verse is to the progeny of Ali and Fatimah, which is the progeny of the Holy Prophet.

(i) There are those who do not recognise Allah's chosen Imam of the age. They are those "who make their souls suffer."

(ii) There are those who although recognise the Imam of the age but are not fully aware of the laws ordained by Allah and its proper application in day to day life.

(iii) The Imams of the Ahl ul Bayt are Allah's chosen guides who live a godly life governed by perfect knowledge and practical application of all the Quranic injunctions. By their inherent example they stand as guides to humanity, constantly calling the people towards truth and godliness, and forbidding evil in every form.

In a tradition related from the Holy Prophet, those in the third category, the foremost in goodness would enter paradise without any demand of their account. Those in the second category, following, the middle course, would have to render account, and then they will be admitted to paradise. Those in the third category, who make their souls suffer will also be admitted to paradise, but later. This tradition was transmitted through Abu Durda.

(Minhaj al Sadiqin and Umdat al Bayan).

Aqa Mahdi Puya says:

Some are unjust to themselves, some are the foremost in all that is good, by Allah's permission.

From this it is obvious that the last book of Allah is inherited in the same lineage, but only by those of the third category who have been identified as the Ahl ul Bayt in Ahzab: 33, and further identified in Ali Imran : 61 and confirmed by Waqi-ah: 77 to 79.

Surely We give life to the dead, and We write down what they have sent before and their footprints, and We have recorded everything in a clear writing.

[surah Yaseen Ayat 12]

On the day of judgment every individual, man or woman, will be brought to account for his or her deeds.

Some of the effects and consequences of the good or evil done by an individual continue to exist in the society, which usually affect the conduct of other people, therefore the primary cause of such evil or good will have to be dealt with (punished or rewarded) in view of the influence it exercised on others, in addition to its own recompense.

Once the people of Bani Salim told the Holy Prophet that their houses were far from the masjid and they would like to build homes near the masjid of the Holy Prophet. The Holy Prophet said: "Be you where you are now, for every step you take toward the masjid is also counted in your account of righteousness."

Imam Muhammad bin Ali al Baqir said that when this verse was revealed, Abu Bakr and Umar asked the Holy Prophet: "Is imamum mubin the Tawrat given to Musa?" The answer was: "No". Again they asked: "Is it Injil, given to Isa?" The answer was: "No". Then they asked: "Is it the Holy Quran?" "No", was the answer. Then turning towards Ali ibn abi Talib, the Holy Prophet said: "Verily this is the Imam in whom Allah has deposited the knowledge of everything." Then, addressing the people present there, the Holy Prophet said: "O people, there is no branch of knowledge Allah did not teach me and I have not conveyed it to Ali. Verily Allah has given me wisdom and I have given it to Ali. I am the city of knowledge and Ali is its gate."

Aqa Mahdi Puya says:

Whatever man does is recorded. The record of the deeds of every individual, and the records pertaining to creation and legislation (which includes knowledge of everything that has been created since the beginning, its progress and the laws governing it) have been made known to "the manifesting Imam", therefore he is the repository of all knowledge. The manifesting Imams have been clearly identified in Ahzab: 33; Waqi-ah: 77 to 79; Ali Imran: 61 and hadith al thaqalayn.

Bukhari has recorded in the chapter "What happened in the houses of the Prophet's wives" in the book "Jihad and Travel" of his Sahih, vol. 2, p. 125, that while delivering an address from the pulpit, the Holy Prophet pointed towards A-isha's house and said: "Here lies the scandal; here lies the scandal; here lies the scandal, where the horn of Shaytan would be rising." In the words of Sahih Muslim: "The Prophet came out of the house of A-isha and remarked: "Here is the head of infidelity where the horn of Shaytan will rise." Refer to Sahih Muslim, vol. 2,0.502.

Aisha was Kaafir? why on earth people call a kaafir 'Ommolmo'menin?

Thalabi reports that when A-isha was asked as to why she violated the command of Allah "to stay in your houses" by going to the battle of Jamal against Ali, she said:

"It was my fate. I saw the Holy Prophet taking Ali, Fatima, Hasan and Husain under his mantle and heard him saying: 'O Allah, these are my Ahl ul Bayt. Keep off impurity from them.' I asked him: 'Am I not of your Ahl ul Bayt?' He said: 'Go away from here. You are not of my Ahlul Bayt.'"

but some dirty infidles called he the ahlolbayt of prophet, while she herself said the reverse. shame on them all.

All the companions of the Holy Prophet and his wives were polytheists before embracing Islam. Only the Holy Prophet, Ali, Fatimah, Hasan and Husayn were at that time free from the dirt of shirk, therefore they alone could be throughly purified.
As soon as all of us united under the blanket, my father, the messenger of Allah, held the two ends of the blanket and raised his right hand toward the heaven and said:

"O Allah! These are my Ahl ul Bayt, very special to me, my near and dear ones, my own flesh and blood; whoso annoys them disturbs me; whoso makes them sad makes me unhappy. I make war on those who carry on hostilities against them; I am well disposed towards those who make their peace with them; I oppose those who run counter to them; I favour those who love them. They are from me and I am from them. So send Thy blessings, benefits, mercy, protection and favours on me and on them, and keep off from them uncleanliness, and purify them with a thorough purification."

and how well, his companions followed this. :squeez:

Ali declared:

"Well then, by the Lord of the Ka-bah, we have attained our end, and have been rendered successful, so also our followers!"

:yaali:

The Holy Prophet said again:
