Thaqalain Tradition

In the Name of God the Beneficent the Merciful

Jabir bin Abdullah Ansari quotes the Holy Prophet (s) as saying:

یا ایها الناس! انی ترکت فیکم ما ان اخذتم به لن تضلوا: کتاب هللا و عترتی أهل بیتی

O’ people! I have left something (among you) to which if you hold fast, you will never go astray: Allah’s Book and my progeny. 1
