Virtues of the Ahl ul Bayt: A Collection of 60 Ahadith
The Prophet ﷺ is so blessed and virtuous that anything and everything connected to him also becomes blessed and virtuous. The stronger the connection the greater the virtues and blessings, and who can have a stronger connection than those of his ﷺ household and family who follow in his footsteps. The Prophet’s ﷺ Ahl ul Bayt (Household) have many virtues, and these have been described in both the Quran and ahadith and recognition of them has been declared a part of our faith.
This short booklet defines the Ahl ul Bayt and then presents 60 prophetic sayings (ahadith) in the virtues, excellences and significance of them.
