Who belongs to Ahl-al-Bayt

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)



One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Who belongs to Ahlebayt?


(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)




Who belongs to Ahl-al-Bayt

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His  forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


The arabic meaning of the word Ahl-al-Bayt would simply be as follows: Ahl = family or people, and Bayt = house. Thus the word would imply family or people of the house.


Thus when one says Ďahle-baytí in Islam, they refer to the family of the Last Messenger of Allah (saws). And the Ďahle-baytí of Prophet Mohamed (saws) would include his wives, his children, his grand-children, and so on.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahís Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your Brother in Islam,
