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. [33:33, Shakir]

That is of which Allah gives the good news to His servants, (to) those who believe and do good deeds. Say: I do not ask of you any reward for it but love for my near relatives; and whoever earns good, We give him more of good therein; surely Allah is Forgiving, Grateful. [42:23, Shakir]

Aside from that, there are many verses which make reference to the Ahlulbayt (as), and in particular about Imam Ali (as), or were revealed about them, even though they aren't explictly named.

you know the verse when the prophet didnt eat for three days because they gave there food away to a freed prisoner, homeless and orphan?

thank you so much..

And they give food out of love for Him to the poor and the orphan and the captive: [76:8, Shakir]

We only feed you for Allah's sake; we desire from you neither reward nor thanks: [76:9]

Surely we fear from our Lord a stern, distressful day. [76:10]

Therefore Allah win guard them from the evil of that day and cause them to meet with ease and happiness; [76:11]

Al‑Ahzaab, Surah 33, Ayah 33.

إِنَّمَا يُرِيدُ اللَّهُ لِيُذْهِبَ عَنكُمُ الرِّجْسَ

أَهْلَ الْبَيْتِ وَيُطَهِّرَكُمْ تَطْهِيرًا

“Verily, Allah has decreed to purify you, O' Ahlul Bayt, and sanctify you in a perfect way”

Ayah of Tat'heer (Purification) was revealed on behalf of Fatima s.a , Ali a.s , Al‑Hasan a.s , and Al‑Husain a.s.

Surah 5 (Maa'ida), Ayah 55.

إِنَّمَا وَلِيُّكُمُ اللّهُ وَرَسُولُهُ

وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ الَّذِينَ يُقِيمُونَ الصَّلاَةَ وَيُؤْتُونَ الزَّكَاةَ وَهُمْ رَاكِعُونَ

Verily, verily, Allah is your Wali (Overlord), and so is His Messenger, and those who believe and establish prayer, and give the poor‑rate while in State of Rukoo' [state of bowing down].

this verse refers to Ali a.s when he gave his ring to a beggar while bowing in Rukoo' (in the course of his prayer).

Surah 3 (Aali‑Imraan), Ayah 61: Muhammad (pbuh) chooses Ahlul Bayt.

فَمَنْ حَآجَّكَ فِيهِ مِن بَعْدِ مَا جَاءكَ مِنَ الْعِلْمِ فَقُلْ

تَعَالَوْاْ نَدْعُ أَبْنَاءنَا وَأَبْنَاءكُمْ وَنِسَاءنَا وَنِسَاءكُمْ وَأَنفُسَنَا وأَنفُسَكُمْ

ثُمَّ نَبْتَهِلْ فَنَجْعَل لَّعْنَةُ اللّهِ عَلَى الْكَاذِبِينَ

“....then reply [O' Muhammad]: Let us call upon our children and your children, our ladies and your ladies, ourselves and yourselves,

then we pray so that Allah's wrath be upon those who are false.”

Surah 4 (Nisaa'), Ayah 59 commands us to obey the Wali, (the one vested with authority)

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ أَطِيعُواْ اللّهَ وَأَطِيعُواْ الرَّسُولَ وَأُوْلِي الأَمْرِ مِنكُمْ فَإِن …تَنَازَعْتُمْ فِي شَيْءٍ فَرُدُّوهُ إِلَى اللهِ وَالرَّسُولِ

O' Men of faith! Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger and those vested with authority over you [from] among you; and then if you quarrel about something, refer it to Allah and the Messenger.....

Surah 16 (Nah'l), Ayah 43 commands us to seek answers from the knowledgeable in the Quran.

وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَا مِن قَبْلِكَ إِلاَّ رِجَالاً نُّوحِي إِلَيْهِمْ

فَاسْأَلُواْ أَهْلَ الذِّكْرِ إِن كُنتُمْ لاَ تَعْلَمُونَ

And before Thy time [O' Muhammad], We have sent men to whom We have revealed; —[O people] refer to the Folk of Dhik'r when you do not know.


Al‑Dhik'r refers to the Holy Quran itself; and it is also one of the names of the Holy Prophet. Since they are the seas of knowledge in Islam, Ahlul Bayt a.s are regarded as the Ahlul Dhik'r, as Imam Al‑Saadiq a.s and others have affirmed

Surah 3 (Aali‑Imraan), Ayah 7 designates Ahlul Bayt as the erudite (deeply rooted) in knowledge of the Divine.

هُوَ الَّذِيَ أَنزَلَ عَلَيْكَ الْكِتَابَ مِنْهُ آيَاتٌ مُّحْكَمَاتٌ هُنَّ أُمُّ الْكِتَابِ وَأُخَرُ مُتَشَابِهَاتٌ

فَأَمَّا الَّذِينَ في قُلُوبِهِمْ زَيْغٌ فَيَتَّبِعُونَ مَا تَشَابَهَ مِنْهُ ابْتِغَاء الْفِتْنَةِ وَابْتِغَاء تَأْوِيلِهِ

وَمَا يَعْلَمُ تَأْوِيلَهُ إِلاَّ اللّهُ وَالرَّاسِخُونَ فِي الْعِلْمِ

يَقُولُونَ آمَنَّا بِهِ كُلٌّ مِّنْ عِندِ رَبِّنَا وَمَا يَذَّكَّرُ إِلاَّ أُوْلُواْ الألْبَابِ

It is Allah who sent to you [O' Muhammad] the Book [Quran], wherein are some decisive verses —they are the basis of the Book—

and others having variable meanings. Men with perversity in their hearts emphasize the unclear therein (seeking to mislead);

while none knows the Quran's hidden meaning except Allah and the erudite (firmly rooted) in knowledge; who say

We believe in it, all is from our Lord.” Nevertheless, none heeds this save those endowed with wisdom.


The Holy Quran confirms that Ahlul Bayt a.s are the seas of knowledge الراسـخـون في الـعـلــم who knew the inmost meaning of the Quran as no one else. The Quran attests to them as the ones with deep and encyclopedic knowledge.

Surah 42 (Shoora), Ayah 23 demands the love of Ahlul Bayt.

قُل لا أَسْأَلُكُمْ عَلَيْهِ أَجْرًا إِلا الْمَوَدَّةَ فِي الْقُرْبَى

وَمَن يَقْتَرِفْ حَسَنَةً نَّزِدْ لَهُ فِيهَا حُسْنًا

إِنَّ اللَّهَ غَفُورٌ شَكُورٌ

Declare [O' Muhammad]: “I ask you of no recompense for my toil except the love for my kin (family).” And the one who earns good, We shall expand it for him. Verily Allah is oft‑forgiving and appreciates good works.


You reap as you sow, for those who believe and do good (to please Allah) are blessed in this life and especially in the Hereafter.

To know that Ali, Fatima, Al‑Hasan and Al‑Husain and their children are the closest kin “near relatives” of the Prophet (pbuh) is well known

Surah 8 (Al‑Anfaal), Ayah 75 signifies the blood relations.

…وَأُوْلُواْ الأَرْحَامِ بَعْضُهُمْ أَوْلَى بِبَعْضٍ فِي كِتَابِ اللّهِ

إِنَّ اللّهَ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمٌ

... and the blood relations are nearer to one another in the Book of Allah. Certainly Allah knows all.


In Al‑Nusoos, Al‑Siddooq quotes Imam Al-Husain a.s who said when Allah sent down this Ayah —the blood relations are nearer one to another in the Book of Allah— Husain a.s asked his grandfather (the Prophet) for explanation. The Prophet (pbuh) answered, “Grandson, when I die, your father, Ali a.s , who is nearest to me, has the Supreme Title over anybody else for succeeding me. When your father passes away then your brother Al‑Hasan a.s has the Supreme Title over others, and when Al‑Hasan a.s passes away, you have the Supreme Title for succeeding him.”

Surah 56 (Al‑Waaqi'a), Ayah 10 honors Ahlul Bayt even more.

وَالسَّابِقُونَ السَّابِقُونَ

أُوْلَئِكَ الْمُقَرَّبُونَ

فِي جَنَّاتِ النَّعِيمِ

ثُلَّةٌ مِّنَ الاَوَّلِينَ

وَقَلِيلٌ مِّنَ الاخِرِينَ

عَلَى سُرُرٍ مَّوْضُونَةٍ

مُتَّكِئِينَ عَلَيْهَا مُتَقَابِلِينَ ...

And the foremost in faith will be foremost [in receiving Allah's rewards]. They will be brought nearest [to Allah]: in gardens of bliss; they are a multitude from the early people [in Islam], and a few from the later ones [in Islam].


As the foremost in faith, the first male to embrace Islam was the 10 year old Ali a.s , who had never bowed to an idol. The very first to embrace Islam was a woman, the beloved wife of the Prophet (pbuh), Khadija. Therefore, Ali a.s and Khadija s.a were the initial (first of) Saabiqeen. According to Sahih Bukhari, the Prophet (pbuh) stated that “He who does not recognize the Imam of his age, he leaves this world dying in the manner of al-Jahiliya الجاهـلـيـه (as a heretic)”.

Surah 37 (Al‑Saffaat), Ayah 130 sends salutations to Ahlul Bayt:

سَلامٌ عَلَى ٌآلَْ يَاسِينَ

Peace unto Aali Yassin. Verily, thus We recompense those who do good.


Allah sends salutation to Aali Yassin. “Aali Yassin” means Aali Muhammad., in other words Ahlul Bayt a.s.
