Purity of Ahlul Bayt (A.S.)
He said: Abu Bakr Muhammad b. Umar al-Je'abi, may Allah bless him with mercy, reported to me from Ahmad b. Isa b. Abu Musa in Kufa, from Abdus b. Muhammad al-Hadhrami, who reported from Muhammad b. Furat, from Abu Ishaq, from al-Harith, from Ali b. Abi Talib, peace be upon him, who said:
The Prophet, peace be upon him and his progeny, used to come to us every early morning saying: "Time for prayers! May Allah have mercy on you. Verily! Allah intends to remove all abominations from you, O Ahlul Bait, and to purify you absolutely."
The fate of those who disown Ahlulbait
He said: Abu Bakr Muhammad b. Umar al-Je'abi, reported to me from Muhammad b. Abdillah ibn Abu Ayyub at the Syrian coast, who reported from Ja'far b. Harun al-Masisi, who reported from Khalid b. Yazid al-Qisri, who reported from Umay al-Sayrafi, who said:
I heard Abu Ja'far Muhammad b.Ali al-Baqir, peace be upon him, say: "Allah will disown those who disown us, and may Allah curse those who curse us; and may Allah destroy those who are our adversaries. O Allah! You know that we are the cause of their guidance, and yet they take us as their enemies. So You be the sole One to inflict punishment upon them."
The inmates of the Prophet's household
He said: Abu Bakr Muhammad b. Umar al-Je'abi reported to me from Muhammad b. Muhammad b. Sulaiman al-Baghandi, who reported from Harun b. Hatim, who reported from Ismail b. Tawbah, who reported from Mas'ab b. Sallam, from Abu Ishaq, from Rabee'ah al-Sa'd, who said:
I came to Hudhaifah b. al-Yaman, may Allah have mercy on him, and requested him to relate to me what he heard from the Prophet, peace be upon him and his progeny, or what he saw him do, so that I may follow it. He said: "Remain with the Qur'an." I said: "I have read the Qur'an, I have come to you to know of what I have neither seen or heard. O Allah! I make you my witness on Hudhaifah, that I have come to him so that he may narrate to me what I have not seen nor heard about the Prophet of Allah, peace be upon him and his progeny, but he is refusing me, and hiding it from me."
Hudhaifah said: "O brother, you are pressing me hard." Then he said: "Take this short one from a long list, which contains all, that matters to you. The sign of Paradise for this Ummah is (personified in) the Prophet, peace be upon him and his progeny, (though) he ate food (like us) and strolled in the markets."
Then I said to him: "Guide me to the sign of Paradise (now) so that I may follow it, and show me the sign of hell, so that I may guard myself against it." He said: "By Him Who controls my soul, the sign of Paradise and its true guides till the Day of Resurrection are the true Imams from the descendents of Muhammad, peace be upon him and his progeny. And the sign of hellfire and the leaders unto unbelief and hell, up to the Day of Resurrection, are other than them.
Sympathy for Ahlulbait
He said: Abul Qasim Ja'far b. Muhammad b. Qawlawayh, may Allah bless him with mercy, reported to me from his father, who reported from Sa'd b. Abdillah, from Ahmad b. Abu Abdillah al-Barqi, who reported from Sulaiman Ibn Salemah al-Kindi, from Muhammad b. Saeed b. Ghazwan, and Isa b. Abu Mansoor, from Aban b. Taghlib, who reported that:
Abu Abdillah Ja'far b. Muhammad, peace be upon him, said: "A person who sighs in grief over the wrongs meted out to us, that sigh is extolment of Allah, and his anxiety about us is an act of worship, and to conceal our secrets is a struggle in the way of Allah". Then Abu Abdillah, peace be upon him said: "This tradition ought to be written in gold."
Ahlul Bait: the most suppressed
He said:Abu Ubaidullah Muhammad b. Imran al-Marzbani reported to me from Ahmad b. Muhammad al-Jawhari, who reported from al-Hasan b. Aleel al-Anzi, who reported from Abdul Karim ibn Muhammad b. Ali, who reported from Muhammad b. Ali, who reported from Muhammad b. al-Manqar, who reported from Ziyad b. al-Munzir, who reported from Sharjeel, from Umm al-Fadhl b. al Abbas, who said:
When the messenger of Allah, peace be upon him and his progeny, fell seriously ill in his last days, he once woke up while we were crying around him. So he said: "What makes you cry?" We said: "O Prophet of Allah, we are crying helplessly, we cry because you will soon leave us behind, and the heavenly news will cease to come to us. And we cry over the fate of the Ummah after you have gone." The Prophet, peace upon him and his progeny said: "Be it clear to you that you will be suppressed and weakened after I have gone."
