The Virtues of The Family Of the Prophet Ahl Al Bait

 It has been authentically reported that the Prophet , loved‘Aa'ishah the most. It has also been reported that Abu Bakr and‘Umar were the most beloved men to the Prophet . ‘Amr ibn Al-‘Aasreported, “The Messenger of Allaah , entrusted me to head the Army of Thaat As-Salaasil. I came to him and said, 'Who is the most beloved person to you?' He said: '‘Aaishah." I asked, 'And among the men?' He said: 'Her father (i.e. Abu Bakr).' I said, 'Then who?' He said, '‘Umar.' He then named other men.” [Al-Bukhaari and Muslim]

It is incumbent upon a Muslim to love the household of the Prophet , because they are his family. Allaah, The Exalted, says (what means): {Say, [O Muhammad], “I do not ask you for this message any payment [but] only good will through kinship.”} [Quran 42:23]

Usaamah narrated that the Prophet , used to seat him and Al-Hasan ibn 'Ali and say: “O Allaah! I love them, so please love them.” [Al-Bukhaari]

‘Abdur-Rahmaan ibn Mas‘ood reported on the authority of Abu Hurayrah that: “The Messenger of Allaah , came once carrying Al-Hasan and Al-Husayn, each on one of his shoulders, kissing them alternately until he reached us and said: ‘He who loves them, has loved me, and he who hates them, has hated me.’

Hence, there is no harm in loving the household of the Prophet , more than other honorable Companions. What is impermissible is to have excess love to any person more than the love you have for Allaah, The Exalted, and the Messenger .
