All that i ask is that you love my family

  1. 1.  InThe Glorious Qur'an- the revealed word of Almighty Allah, to His last and greatest Prophet, Muhammad (s.a.w.)-there is a verse Which speaks of the Prophet’s family
  2. 2. ALLAH(swt) commands his  prophet to ask the people to love his family in return for all the hard work and suffering that he endured during his prophetic mission. BUT……………..   Who are the members of the Prophet’s family that this verse speaks of?
  3. 3. Also there is another verse which refers to the same blessed family of the holy Messenger -33:33
  4. 4.  ………Allah only desires to keep away the uncleanness from you, O people of the House! And to purify you a (thorough) purifying.quot; Holy Qur'an (33:33)
  5. 5.  Why did ALLAH (swt) in his infinite wisdom, want to purify this family in addition to asking the believers to Love and obey them?
  6. 6. Yet another verse talks of this family in the holy Quran………… VERSE 3:61
  7. 7. But whoever disputes with you 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 and your selves, then let us be earnest in prayer, and pray for the curse of Allah on the liars. Holy Quran 3:61 
  8. 8. Verse 3:61 is called the ayat of  Mubahela and it was revealed on the eve of a debate with the Christian scholars of Najran after prophet Muhammad and the Christians were unable to arrive on any mutual understanding.
  9. 9. The next morning, in obeying this commandment, MUHAMMAD emerged from his house with his closest family. He came and stood with this family in front of the Christian bishops who also came forward to perform the Mubahela.
  10. 10. held the hand of He HASSAN walking beside him, held HUSSAIN in his arms,
  11. 11. by followed his daughter FATIMA
  12. 12. finally by and his son-in-law and cousin ALI. 
  13. 13. Prophet came and The stood with this family in front of the Christian bishops who also came forward to perform the Mubahela.
  14. 14.  Thechief of the Christians was bishop Abul Harris. When he saw this small family of the Prophet he turned towards his fellow Christians and told them…..
  15. 15. , quot;do not indulge in Mubahela with  this family, for I am observing such pious faces that if they would order the mountain to come to them the mountain shall move towards them. It is therefore necessary to make treaty with them rather than confrontation of this spiritual imminence.quot;
  16. 16. They asked Muhammad for  peace and it was accepted. Muhammad extended the hand of friendship towards them, a treaty was signed and both parties left on friendly terms.
  17. 17. Therefore we can conclude from verse 3:61, that
  18. 18. sons refers Our TO HASSAN(as) HUSSEIN(as)
  19. 19. Women Our refers to FATIMA ZEHRA (as)
  20. 20. refers Ourselves to the Holy prophet (as) and ALI (as)
  21. 21. These are the holy  personalities that are referred in all the three verses mentioned  42:23  33:33  3:61
  22. 22.  This is the family whose members were purified so that they can be blessed with the knowledge to carry on the teachings of ISLAM after the Blessed Messenger.
  23. 23.  ALLAH (swt) knew a time would come when there would be a split within the Muslim community as to who to obey.
  24. 24.  False hadeeth and corrupted testimonies would be created to hide the truth,  which would split the Muslims
  25. 25.  Butthe message of ALLAH (swt) clearly commands us through his holy words where the truth lies- with those who have been blessed and purified
  26. 26. WHAT DID THE BUT MUSLIMS DO?
  27. 27.  May ALLAH(swt) guide us and keep us on the straight path….  The path of whom he has favored  And not the path of those who have gone astray and those who have earned his anger
  28. 28. ON HIS DEATH BED PROPHET  MUHAMMAD (as) ASKED FOR A PEN AND PAPER SO HE COULD WRITE DOWN THE WAY THAT WOULD PREVENT THE MUSLIMS FROM GOING ASTRAY……………. HE WAS DENIED THIS BY A COMPANION
