Praise of ahlel-bait from ibn Taymiya


Salam alaikum

Sheikhul-islam Taqiad-deen Abul Abbas Ahmad ibn Abdulhaleem ibn Taymiya said:

وأما من قتل ” الحسين ” أو أعان على قتله أو رضي بذلك فعليه لعنة الله والملائكة والناس أجمعين
“As for killers of Hussein, or those who helped to kill him, or those who were glad with his murder, may curse of Allah, angels and all human be upon them”.

And he also said:

من أبغضهم فعليه لعنة الله والملائكة والناس أجمعين
“May curse of Allah, angels and all human be upon the one who would hate them (ahlel-bayt)”.

See “Fatawa” 1/392.

And he said:

وأما علي رضي الله عنه فلا ريب أنه ممن يحب الله ويحبه الله
“And Ali, may Allah be pleased with him, without any doubt from people who loved Allah, and who were beloved by Allah”.

See: Minhaj us sunna 7 / 218

And he said:

وأما كون عليّ وغيره مولى كل مؤمن ، فهو وصف ثابت لعليّ في حياة النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم وبعد مماته، وبعد ممات عليّ، فعلي اليوم مولى كل مؤمن
“And Ali and others were mawla of all believers. That’s a description established for Ali during the life of prophet (sallalahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa salam), and after his death, and after the death of Ali (himself). And Ali today is a mawla of all believers”.

See: Minhaj us sunna 7 / 325

And he said:

لا ريب أن موالاة علي واجبة على كل مؤمن، كما يجب على كل مؤمن موالاة أمثاله من المؤمنين
“No doubt that mawlat (friendship) of Ali is obligatory for all believers, as it obligatory on all believers mawlat of believers like him”.

See: Minhaj us sunna 7 / 27

And he said:

لا ريب أن علياً رضي الله عنه كان من شجعان الصحابة، وممن نصر الله الإسلام بجهاده، ومن كبار السابقين الأوَّلين من المهاجرين والأنصار، ومن
سادات من آمن بالله واليوم الآخر وجاهد في سبيل الله، وممن قاتل بسيفه عدداً من الكفار

“No doubt that Ali from the bravest companions, and from those by whos jihad Allah granted victory to islam, and from the greatest who “first to lead the way, of the Muhajirin and the Ansar”.

See: Minhaj us sunna 8 / 76

And he said:

وأما زهد عليّ رضي الله عنه في المال فلا ريب فيه
“As for the zuhd of Ali, may Allah be pleased with him, to property, there is no doubt in it”.

See: Minhaj us sunna 7 / 489

And he said:

معلوم أن الذين كانوا مع علي من الصحابة مثل: عمار وسهل بن حنيف ونحوهما كانوا أفضل من الذين كانوا مع معاوية
“It’s known that companions that were around Ali, like Ammar, Sahl ibn Khunayf and others like them, were better that those who were around Moawiya”.
