Ahl al-Bayt's (A.S.) Status on the Day of Resurrection
The Messenger of Allah (S.A.W.) said: The first who will join me by the Hawd of Kawthar are my Ahl al-Bayt and those of my Ummah who love me.
Al-Imam Ali (A.S.): The Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) informed me that among the first who will enter the Paradise are me along with Fatima (A.S.) al-Hasan (A.S.), and al-Husayn(A.S.). I asked, O Rasul Allah! How about my followers and lovers? He replied: They will follow you into the Paradise.
The Messenger of Allah (S.A.W.) said: There is a place in the Paradise called Wasilah (means); whenever you ask Allah for something ask for Wasilah for me too. He was asked: O Rasu Allah! Who will be with you there? He replied: Ali (A.S.), Fatima (A.S.), al-Hasan (A.S.), and al-Husayn (A.S.)
The Messenger of Allah (S.A.W.) said: The center of Paradise will belong to me and to my Ahl al-Bayt.
71. Hudayfah said: My mother asked me: How long is it that you have not seen the Hoy Prophet (S.A.W.)? I told her from such and such a time. She reproached me and called me names.
I said: Let me go to the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) to perform the evening prayer with him, and I will not leave him until he ask Allah forgiveness for you and me. Hudayfah goes on saying: I took audience with his Holiness (S.A.W.) and performed evening prayer with him, and the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) performed the night prayer too. The Holy Prophet (S.A.W), then, returned and on his way someone ran into him, whispered something to him and went away. I followed His Holiness (S.A.W.) and when he heard me he asked: Who are you? I said: Hudayfah. He asked: What do you want? I told him the story. Then His Holiness (S.A.W.) said: May Allah forgive you and your mother. Then added: Did you see the one who ran into me a while ago? I said: Yes. He said: He was an angel who had not descended on earth before tonight, and who had asked Allah to send greetings to me and give me the glad tidings that al-Hasan (A.S.)and al-Husayn (A.S.) are the princes of the youth of Paradise and Fatima (A.S.) is the lady of the ladies of Paradise; May Allah be pleased with them.
