Hadith al-Tatt-heer

Hadith al-Tatt-heer:

He is among the purified members of Ahlul Bayt and this fact has already been proved in the chapter about Ahlul Bay

The verse “Verily Allah intends to … (33:33)” was revealed to the Prophet (PBUH&HF) in the house of Umm Salama. Upon that, the Prophet gathered Fatimah, al-Hasan, and al-Husain, 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.

It is because of this purification that the door of Ali (looking into the masjid) was kept open while the doors of all the companions were ordered to be shut. This purification and cleansing (by Allah) from all forms of impurities puts Ali above all the companions. What more can a nation hope for when it can have a caliph that was purified (by Allah) under the cloak of the prophet and that can lead the people to guidance and rule them with the justice of the prophet.

al-Hakim (in al-Mustadrak) in connection with the attainments of Imam al-Hasan, and al-Haythami (in connection with the excellence of the Holy Family) have narrated that Imam al-Hasan (AS) addressed the people after the martyrdom of his father Imam Ali Ibn Abi Talib (AS) and said during his speech:

O People! Whoever knows me, knows me and whoever doesn’t know me should know that I am al-Hasan Ibn Ali; I am the son of the Holy Prophet and of his executor (Wasi). I am the son him who invited people to Allah and warned them of the torture of His Hellfire. I am the son of the luminous Lamp. I belong to the family upon whom Gabriel used to descend and from there ascend to heavens belong to the family from whom Allah has ward off all filth and made them pure.
