There is a sect in the world that claim that they are unequaled and unsurpassed in their love and allegiance for the Ahlul Bayt. In fact, they attempt to give the impression that they are the only people who love the Ahlul Bayt. In the Month of Muharram, especially, they make a spectacle of themselves and do ridiculous things to try and dupe people into believing that they really have this so-called love and allegiance. They also paint a very negative picture regarding the relationship that Sayyiduna Abu Bakr, Sayyiduna ‘Umar and other Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) had with the Ahlul Bayt.
In reality, we, the Ahlus Sunnah are the ones who have true love for the Ahlul Bayt, since they only love and respect a few individuals of the Ahlul Bayt, viz. Sayyiduna ‘Ali, Sayyidah Faatimah, Sayyiduna Hasan, Sayyiduna Husain (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) and some of their progeny, whereas we love all the Ahlul Bayt without any exception.
If a person believes in a few chapters of the Quraan Majeed and disbelieves in the remainder, can we regard him as one who believes in the Quraan Majeed? Obviously not! Thus, by a person loving only a selected few members of the Ahlul Bayt and going to the extent of even reviling the remainder, can he be regarded as a lover of the Ahlul Bayt?
The Ahlus Sunnah do not confine their love to one daughter of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) only excluding the other three. Rather we love all the four respected daughters of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).
