Status of the Ahla Bayt


1) AsSalamuAlaikum,

What is our view on the descendants of the Prophet(saw) who are not Muslim, or who are fasiq, or those from among the Shias etc?

2) I’ve been reading different things about Abu Talib. Some scholars point to a hadith that says he will be in hell and he will have the lowest punishment, and some scholars say he was definitely a Muslim and he will be in Jannah. Which is the correct view? I know this doesn’t concern me as much, but being from the Ahla bayt myself, it interests me. Thank you.


wa `alaykum salam,

These questions are both ma la ya`nee, what is not of concern to you, unless you belong to category 1, and asking can lead you into areas you are not prepared for, and this is danger.

See the Post “Abu Talib“.
