Hadith:the Ark of Noah.

Interesting to see, al-Hakim has many other traditions about necessity of following Ahlul-Bayt, among
which is the following tradition. This tradition is also narrated by many other Sunni scholars and is known as
the “Tradition of the Ship” in which the Prophet (PBUH&HF) 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.”
