خرج النبي صلى الله عليه و آله و سلم غداة و عليه مرط مرحل من شعر اسود فجاء الحسن بن على فادخله ثم جاء الحسين فدخل معه ثم جاءت فاطمة فادخلها ثم جاء على فادخله ثم قال إِنَّمَا یُرِيْدُ اللهُ لِیُذْهِبَ عَنْكُمُ الرِّجْسَ أَهْلَ الْبَيْتِ وَ یُطَهِّرَكُمْ تَطْهِيْرًا
Rasulullah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam left in the morning wearing a striped cloak made from black (camel’s) hair. Hassan ibn ‘Ali came and Rasulullah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam wrapped him under it, followed by Hussain who entered with him. Then Fatimah came and he took her under it, then came ‘Ali and he also took him under it. He thereafter recited:
The Shia dupe people into believing that this hadith is the reason behind the revelation of this verse. This is a mistake, if not a lie. Rasulullah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam mentioned this verse to clarify that these four personalities are also included in the verse. How can the sons be the reason behind the revelation of the verse when the context clearly shows that the addressees are the wives of Rasulullah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam?
Moreover, the hadith does not contain any wording to show restriction to them, to the exclusion of all others.
Furthermore, Rasulullah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said to Sayyidah ‘Aisha radiya Llahu ‘anha:
السلام عليكم أهل البيت
Peace be upon you, O Ahlul Bayt!
And he taught us to supplicate:
اللهم صل على محمد و آل محمد
O Allah, send salutations upon Muhammad and the family of Muhammad.
In another narration the words appear:
اللهم صل على محمد و آله و ذريته
O Allah, send salutations upon Muhammad, his family, and progeny.
Hafiz Ibn Kathir has related from Sayyidina Jabir radiya Llahu ‘anhu that the verse of tathir:
was revealed concerning them.
He attributed this wording to al Hakim. However, I have not found it like this.
