1. We and all our Muslim brothers and sisters , believe that the best human being and best of all the creatures of Allah is the Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him and His Progeny). Allah he Glorious told the Prophet in Quran (We did not send you but as a Mercy for All the worlds) Sura 21, Verse 107. The status of the Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) is the Highest among all the prophets and great angles. This fact is mentioned in Hadeeths in Sunni and Shia books like Saheeh Muslim, number 4223, Al-Mussannaf by Abdul Razzaq 2/419,and other books.
2. Allah The Glorious mentioned in Quran about the Progeny of the Prophet (Offspring (of the Prophet), one from the other) (Aal Imran, 34). Which means that the Progeny of the Prophet is from him and he is from them.
3. This fact has been mentioned in many authentic Hadeeths from the Prophet (SAWA) stating that ( Ali is from me and I am from him)
- (Al-Bukhari, 2699),
- (Musnad Ahmad Bin Manbal 33/154),
- Al-Tirmithi, 3712
- Saheeh Ibn Hibbaan 15/374,
- Al-Albaani in al-Silsilah al-Saheeha 2223.
4. The Prophetic Hadeeth states : Husain is from me and I am from him, may Allah like any one who likes Husain.
- Al-Bukhari in Al-Adab Al-Mofrad, 364.
- Al-Tirmithi, Number 2775.
- Ibn Maajah 144.
-Al-Haakin in Al-Mustadrak 3/194
- Al-Tabaraani in Almajma' al-Kabeer, number 2486
- Al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami' , number 3146
5. Reading and understanding the Quran and authentic prophetic statements guide us to the fact that the status of the Infallible Ahlul Bayt AS) is from the status of the Prophet (SAWA) himself. When the Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) is the highest above all the prophets, his Infallible Ahlul Bayt AS) who are from him according to him, are next to him and higher than all others but him.
