Allama Baqir Sharif al-Qurashi famous shia writer, author of many books regarding history.
In his book “The life of imam Ali ibn Musa” in chapter “The Imām’s Debate Concerning the Prophet’s Family”, this shia scholar said:
The Imām recited to him a group of the verses which lauded the excellence of the Household, peace be on them, saying: “Surely Allah chose Adam and Nūh and the descendants of Ibrāhim and the descendants of ‘Umrān above the nations, offspring, one of the other; and Allah is Hearing, Knowing.[3, 32.] And Allah said in another place: Or do they envy the people for what Allah has given them of His grace? But indeed We have given to Ibrāhim’s family the Book and the wisdom, and We have given them a grand kingdom.[4, 54.] Then after this Allah addressed the rest of the Muslims, saying: O you who believe, obey Allah and obey the Apostle and those in authority from among you.[4, 59.] He meant those whom He made inherit the Book and wisdom, and they were envied for them, according to these words of Him: Or do they envy the people for what Allah has given them of His grace? But indeed We have given to Ibrāhim’s family the Book and the wisdom, and We have given them a grand kingdom. He meant obedience to those chosen and pure, and ‘kingdom’ here means obedience to them.”
“Did Allah, the Most High, interpret ‘choice’ in the Book?” asked the scholars.
The Imām answered them: “He interpreted ‘choice’ in outward apart from the inward in twelve places:
“The first of that is the words of Allah: And warn your nearest relations [26, 214.], and your loyal family in this manner it is in the recitation of Ubay b. Ka‘b, and it has been established in the copy of the Qur’ān of ‘Abd Allah b. Mas‘ūd. However, when ‘Uthmān ordered Zayd b. Thābit to collect the Qur’ān, he omitted this verse. And this is an exalted position, great excellence, and lofty honor when Allah, the Great and Almighty, meant the family (āl) by that. This is one (verse).
