The Thirteenth Spurious Argument: Loving the Prophet’s Family

Some people spuriously argue that the Shia love the Prophet's family more than Allah and His Messenger Muhammad (s), and they believe that their love for them is enough to get them into Paradise and save them from Hell.

The Answer

This is a great fabrication. The Shias love the Prophet’s family simply because they are the family of the Prophet (s) and for the sake of their love for the Prophet. Their love for the Prophet is simply because he is the Messenger of Allah. Therefore, it is irrational for the Shia to love the Prophet’s family more than they love the Prophet, and it is also irrational for them to love the Prophet more than they love Allah.
