Quran and several sahi narrations explicitly shows that wives of prophet(Saw) are ahlebayt


Quran and several sahi narrations explicitly shows  that wives of prophet(Saw) are Ahlelbayt.

In The Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Merciful.

We read in Quran:

يَا نِسَاءَ النَّبِيِّ لَسْتُنَّ كَأَحَدٍ مِّنَ النِّسَاءِ إِنِ اتَّقَيْتُنَّ فَلَا تَخْضَعْنَ بِالْقَوْلِ فَيَطْمَعَ الَّذِي فِي قَلْبِهِ مَرَضٌ وَقُلْنَ قَوْلًا مَّعْرُوفًا وَقَرْنَ فِي بُيُوتِكُنَّ وَلَا تَبَرَّجْنَ تَبَرُّجَ الْجَاهِلِيَّةِ الْأُولَى وَأَقِمْنَ الصَّلَاةَ وَآتِينَ الزَّكَاةَ وَأَطِعْنَ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ إِنَّمَا يُرِيدُ اللَّهُ لِيُذْهِبَ عَنكُمُ الرِّجْسَ أَهْلَ الْبَيْتِ وَيُطَهِّرَكُمْ تَطْهِيرًا

O Consorts of the Prophet! Ye are not like any of the (other) women: if ye do fear (Allah), be not too complacent of speech, lest one in whose heart is a disease should be moved with desire: but speak ye a speech (that is) just. And stay quietly in your houses, and make not a dazzling display, like that of the former Times of Ignorance; and establish regular Prayer, and give regular Charity; and obey Allah and His Messenger. Allah only wishes to remove all abomination from you, ye members of the Family(ahlebayt), and to make you pure and spotless. And recite what is rehearsed to you in your homes, of the Signs of Allah and His Wisdom: for Allah understands the finest mysteries and is well-acquainted (with them) (33: 32-34)

Allah Almighty clearly addresses the wives of the Prophet(saw) in this verse with the term ahlebayt, we base this on the simple fact that the context of the verse starts with “O wives of the Prophet”,  How can we say that this verse refers to Ali(ra) and the Infallible Imams when none of them are mentioned here, but only the wives are addressed, in the initial and the later verses(i.e 33:32-34) where the term “ahlebayt” was used.

This verse from surah ahzaab is  so clear and explicit in declaring wives of prophet(Saw) as “ahlebayt” that a person with unbiased approach will never deny this crystal clear proof as it is apparent from the whole passage(33:32-34) right from the beginning to the end that addressees are wives of prophet(Saw). But those who love their self made beliefs and concepts made by their fathers more than the word of Allah they cling to those farfetched arguments and interpretations which the quran(3:7) warned against.

 

Now let us quote some authentic narrations which are in agreement with quran and backup the explicit verses of quran which shows us that wives of prophet(Saw) are ahlebayt.

قال أنس: وشهدت وليمة زينب. فأشبع الناس خبزا ولحما. وكان يبعثني فأدعوا الناس. فلما فرغ قام وتبعته. فتخلف رجلان استأنس بهما الحديث. لم يخرجا. فجعل يمر على نسائه. فيسلم على كل واحدة منهن “سلام عليكم. كيف أنتم يا أهل البيت؟” فيقولون: بخير. يا رسول الله ! كيف وجدت أهلك ؟ فيقول “بخير

1. Anas(ra) said: I also saw the wedding feast of Zainab, and he (the Holy Prophet) served bread and meat to the people, and made them eat to their heart’s content, and he (the Holy Prophet) sent me to call people, and as he was free (from the ceremony) he stood up and I followed him. Two persons were left and they were busy in talking and did not get out (of the apartment). He (the Holy Prophet) then proceeded towards (the apartments of) his wives. He greeted with as−Salamu ‘alaikum to every one of them and said: Members of the household, how are you? They said: Messenger of Allah, we are in good state ‘How do you find your family? He would say: In good state. (sahi muslim Bk 8, Number 3328)

(Similar narration is present in Sahih Bukhari, Volume 6, Book 60, Number 316)

Comment: In the above narration prophet(saw) terms his wives as ahlebayt as Prophet [saw] greeted his wives as  “Assalamu’alaikum. Kaifa antum ya Ahlal Bayt“

2.

وهو على المنبر: (يامعشر المسلمين، من يعذرني من رجل قد بلغني أذاه في أهل بيتي، فوالله ما علمت على أهلي إلا خيرا، ولقد ذكروا رجلا ما علمت عليه إلا خيرا، وما كان يدخل على أهلي إلا معي

2. Sahi bukhari (Volume 6 hadith 274)…“So Allah’s Apostle got up (and addressed) the people an asked for somebody who would take revenge on ‘Abdullah bin Ubai bin Salul then. Allah’s Apostle, while on the pulpit, said, “O Muslims! Who will help me against a man who has hurt me by slandering my family(ahli bayti)? By Allah, I know nothing except good about my family, and people have blamed a man of whom I know nothing except good, and he never used to visit my family except with me,”…

Comment: In the above narration prophet(saw) terms one of his wife as ahlebayt. Prophet (S.A.W.)  said to one of his wife  “Ahli Baytee” (my family) on pulpit, during the incident of Ifk.

3.

وحدثنا زهير بن حرب وإسحاق بن إبراهيم. كلاهما عن جرير. قال زهير: حدثنا جرير عن منصور، عن إبراهيم. قال:

قلت للأسود: هل سألت أم المؤمنين عما يكره أن ينتبذ فيه؟ قال: نعم. قلت: يا أم المؤمنين! أخبريني عما نهى عنه رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم أن ينتبذ فيه. قالت: نهانا، أهل البيت، أن ننتبذ في الدباء والمزفت

3. Sahi muslim (Bk 23, Number 4918) Ibrahim reported: I said to Aswad if he had asked the Mother of the Believers (in which utensils) he (the Holy Prophet) disapproved the preparation of Nabidh. He (Aswad) said: Yes. I said: Mother of the Believers, inform me about the utensils in which) Allah’s Apostle forbade to prepare Nabidh. She (Hadrat ‘A’isha) said: He forbade us, the members of his family [Ahlal Bayt], to prepare Nabidh in gourd, or varnished jar. I said to him: Do you remember green pitcher, and pitcher? He said: I narrated to you what I have heard; should I narrate to you which I did not hear?

Comment: In the above narration wife of prophet(saw) too considers herself to be ahlebayt.

الحكم المبدئي: إسناده حسن

Hadith number 4361, hadith marfu
Abu al Qasim Hisham bin Muhammad bin Qura bin Hameed bin Abi Khaleefah narrated: Abu Jafar Ahmed bin Muhammad bin Salamah bin Salmah Al Azadi said: Ahmed bin Dawood said: Abdul Rahman bin Saleh al Azadi al Koofi said: Yunus bin Bakeer said: Muhammad bin Is-haaq narrated from Ibrahim bin Muhammad bin Ali bin Abi Taleb (upon him be peace), from his father From his grandfather Ali bin Abi Taleb (upon him be peace) who said: Some people had been making advances towards Mariah the wife of the Prophet (pbuh) so the Prophet (pbuh) said to me: Go, for if you find him, kill him. I said: “O Prophet of God, I’m at your service like heated steel, and I’ll do what you’ve commanded and nothing will stop me. Does the witness see what the absent doesn’t see?” The Prophet (pbuh) said “The witness sees what the absent doesn’t see”. So I took my sword and I headed off, so I found him leaving Mariah’s house with a jar around his neck, when I saw him I brandished my sword, and when he saw me he threw away his jar and ran away, but he hit a palm tree and his robe blew away, revealing that he had no male genitalia, so I sheated my sword and said “What is this?” He said “It’s all good, I am from the same place as her, and the Prophet (pbuh) is her husband, I bring her firewood and water” So I went back to the Prophet (pbuh) and told him what happened so he said: “All praise is due to God who removed evil from us the Ahl al Bayt. [Good Isnad](Similar narration here in Ibn Kathir’s bidayah wal nihayah)
Comment: We see here that Prophet(Saw) considered his wife as Ahlebayt and  prayed to Allah to remove evil from Ahlebayt. Similar to what he did in Hadith e Kisa.

5. 
– حدثنا قيس بن حفص وموسى بن إسماعيل قالا: حدثنا عبد الواحد بن زياد: حدثنا أبو قرة
مسلم بن سالم الهمذاني قال: حدثني عبد الله ابن عيسى: سمع عبد الرحمن بن أبي ليلى قال:
لقيني كعب بن عجرة فقال: ألا أهدي لك هدية سمعتها من النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم؟ فقلت: بلى،
فأهدها لي، فقال: سألنا رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم فقلنا: يا رسول الله، كيف الصلاة عليكم أهل
البيت، فإن الله قد علمنا كيف نسلم عليكم؟ قال: (قولوا: اللهم صل على محمد وعلى آل محمد، كما
صليت على إبراهيم، وعلى آل إبراهيم، إنك حميد مجي، اللهم بارك على محمد وعلى آل محمد، كما
باركت على إبراهيم وعلى آل إبراهيم، إنك حميد مجيد).

(Sahi bukhari 4.589): Narrated `Abdur−Rahman bin Abi Laila: Ka`b bin Ujrah met me and said, “Shall I not give you a present I got from the Prophet?” `Abdur−Rahman said, “Yes, give it to me.” I said, “We asked Allah’s Apostle saying, ‘O Allah’s Apostle! How should one (ask Allah to) send blessings on you, the members of the family(Ahlebayt), for Allah has taught us how to salute you (in the prayer)?’ He said, ‘Say: O Allah! Send Your Mercy on Muhammad and on the family of Muhammad, as You sent Your Mercy on Abraham and on the family of Abraham, for You are the Most Praise−worthy, the Most Glorious. O Allah! Send Your Blessings on Muhammad and the family of Muhammad, as You sent your Blessings on Abraham and on the family of Abraham, for You are the Most Praise−worthy, the Most Glorious.’

Comment : In this narration we find that people asked prophet(Saw) that how should they bless prophet(Saw) and Ahlebayt. So in his response prophet(saw) just mentioned his “family(aal)” and showed how we should bless him and his “family”. However in the next narration you will notice that prophet(saw) explained that from whom his family was formed.

(Sahi muslim Bk 4, Number 0807) Abu Humaid as−Sa’idi reported: They (the Companions of the Holy Prophet) said: Apostle of Allah, how should we bless you? He (the Holy Prophet) observed: Say:” O Allah! bless Muhammad, his wives and his offspring as Thou didst bless Ibrahim, and grant favours to Muhammad, and his wives and his offspring as Thou didst grant favours to the family of Ibrahim; Thou art Praiseworthy and Glorious.”

Comment: In the above narration though he taught us how to send blessings on him and his family as in previous narration,But here prophet(saw) in a crystal clear manner teaches us that his wives and his progeny collectively forms his family. And they too are part of his family, because if he  wanted to include his wives in the blessings and they were not from his family(aal) , Then the wordings would have been “his wives and his family(aal)” which was not the case here and It seems that he knew that there will be some ignorants who will deny wives of prophet(saw) to be part of his blessed family, that is why prophet(saw) in an explicit manner in the above narration showed that his wives and his progeny collectively forms his family. That’s why instead of using “family” as in previous narration here prophet(Saw) elaborated that who his family were. Prophet(saw) here used family for hz ibrahim’s(as) family as he knew that there will be no dispute of his wives being from his family but for his own he had to clear that his wives and his progeny collectively forms his family because he didn’t want to leave people to be misguided by some deviants who might say that wives of prophet(Saw) were not from his family. Thus instead of using “family” like he used for hz ibrahim(as)’s family , he used wives and offspring.

6. We read in Sahih Bukhari:

حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عَرْعَرَةَ، حَدَّثَنَا شُعْبَةُ، عَنِ الْحَكَمِ بْنِ عُتَيْبَةَ، عَنْ إِبْرَاهِيمَ، عَنِ الأَسْوَدِ بْنِ يَزِيدَ، سَأَلْتُ عَائِشَةَ ـ رضى الله عنها ـ مَا كَانَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَصْنَعُ فِي الْبَيْتِ قَالَتْ كَانَ فِي مِهْنَةِ أَهْلِهِ، فَإِذَا سَمِعَ الأَذَانَ خَرَجَ

Narrated Al-Aswad bin Yazid: I asked `Aisha “What did the Prophet (saw) use to do at home?” She said, “He used to work for his family, and when he heard the Adhan (call for the prayer), he would go out.”(Sahih al-Bukhari #5363).

Comment: Here the word Ahli(family) was used for wives of Prophet(saw), as Prophet(saw) used to help his wives in the house.

7. In Musnad Ahmad (Hadith no. 18464), Zaid ibn Arqam(ra) said: His wives are the members of his family(ahlebayt) but here the members of his family are those for whom acceptance of Zakat is forbidden.” (Ahmad, Hadith no. 18464)

Comment: hz zaid(ra) clearly said that wives of prophet(Saw) are his ahlebayt. And regarding that zakat is forbidden for ahlebayt, then this rule even applies to wives of prophet(Saw) as we see in the next narration.

8. Musannaf ibn abi shaybah (chapter Laa tahillu al-sadqa ala bani hashim)

ابن أبي مليكة أن خالد بن سعيد بعث إلى عائشة ببقرة من الصدقة فردتها وقالت إنا آل محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم لا تحل لنا الصدقة

Narrated with sahi sanad From Ibn Abu Malika [narrated] that: Khaled Ibn Saeed sent a cow from the Sadaqah to Aisha, so she sent it back and said: We are the Aal (the family) of Muhammad Salah Allah ‘Alaihi wa Salam the sadaqah is not permissible for us

Comment : This narration from musannaf ibn abi shaybah also proves that the wives of prophet(Saw) did consider themselves to be not eligible to receive sadaqa and they were from aal e muhammed(Saw).

P.S: AAL and AHL both implies the same meaning and can be called as synonyms.

9. In the following hadeeth, a group of women came to ‘Aishah to ask her some questions, and in this hadeeth we find that Aishah(ra) refered to herself as AAL Muhammad.

حدثتني تميمةُ بنتُ سلمةَ : أنها أتتْ عائشةَ في نسوةٍ من الكوفةِ فقلنا : يا أمّ المؤمنينَ ، نسأَلكَ عن مواقيتِ الصلواتِ . قالت : اجلسنَ . فجلسنا ، فلما كانتِ الساعةُ التي يدعونها نصفَ النهارِ قامتْ فصلتْ بنا – وهي قائمةُ وسطَنَا – فلما انصرفَتْ قلتُ لها : يا أمّ المؤمنينَ ، إنا ندعو هذهِ في بلادِنَا نصفَ النهارِ . قالت : هذهِ صلاتنا آل محمدٍ صلى الله عليه وسلم ، ثم جلسنا ، فلما كانتِ الساعةُ التي تدعونها بين الصلاتينِ صلتْ بنا العصرَ ، فقلنا لها : إنا نَدْعو هذهِ في بلادنا بين الصَلاتَينِ . قالت : هذه صلاتنا آل محمد ، إنا آل محمدٍ لا نُصلّي الصفراءَ . قالت : ثم جلسنا فلو كان غيرُ عائشةَ لظننّا أنها قد صلّتِ المغرِبَ قبل أن تَجِبَ ، ولكن قد عرفْتُ أن عائشةَ لا تُصَلّي إلا عندَ الوقتِ حين وجَبَتْ ، وجهرت بالقراءةِ في المغرِبِ واستأذنَ عليها نِسْوَةٌ من أهلِ الشامِ فقالت : لا تأذنِي لهنّ صواحبَ الحمّاماتِ.

Umm Salmah said: In my House it was revealed “Allah intends only to remove from you the impurity [of sin], O people of the [Prophet’s] household, and to purify you with [extensive] purification.” So the Prophet PBUH sent after Fatima, Ali, Hassan, Hussein and said: “They are my ahluLBayt” and in another narration by Al Qadi and al Summy: “They are My Ahel” She then said: O prophet of Allah! Arn’t I from ahlulbayt? He said: inshallah yes.

Narrator Umm Salamah
Sunan al kubrah
Rank: Sahih.

Note: In this narration prophet (pbuh) clearly links a wife to inshallah because it is contingent upon her staying his wife. Whereas the others will remain his family. So, the wife is ahl bayt as long as she is wife and she stops being so when and if you are divorced. Moreover, Saying inshallah does not have to mean doubt. There is an occurrence in the Qur’an of this term where clearly it is not doubt.

 

Some other narrations to prove that wives of prophet(Saw) are his ahlebayt

حدثنا أبو كريب، قال: ثنا خالد بن مخـلد، قال: ثنا موسى بن يعقوب، قال: ثنـي هاشم بن هاشم بن عتبة بن أبـي وقاص، عن عبد الله بن وهب بن زمعة، قال: أخبرتنـي أمّ سلـمة أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم جمع علـياً والـحَسنـين، ثم أدخـلهم تـحت ثوبه، ثم جأر إلـى الله، ثم قال: ” هؤلاء أهل بـيتـي ” ، فقالت أمّ سلـمة: يا رسول الله أدخـلنـي معهم، قال: ” إنَّكِ مِنْ أهْلِـي

1. On authority of Abd Allah bin Wahb bin Zam’ah, Umm Salamah informed me that the Messenger of Allah SAWS assembled Alii and the two Hasan’s (Husayn and Hasan), he brought them under his thawb, then supplicated to Allah and said: “These are the people of my household”. Then Umm Salamah said: ‘Oh Messenger of Allah, bring me in with them’. He said: “Indeed you are from my household”. (Tabari in “Tafsir”)

2. Tabarani in “al-Kabir”:

حدثنا بكر بن سهل الدمياطي ثنا جعفر بن مسافر التنيسي ثنا ابن أبي فديك ثنا موسى بن يعقوب الزمعي عن هشام بن هاشم عن وهب بن عبد الله بن زمعة : عن أم سلمة أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم جمع فاطمة و حسنا و حسينا رضي الله عنهما ثم أدخلهم تحت ثوبه ثم قال : اللهم هؤلاء أهل بيتي قالت أم سلمة : قلت يا رسول الله أدخلني معهم قال : إنك من أهلي

2663 On authority of Wahb bin Abd Allah bin Zam’ah (this name is flipped from the previous chain), on authority of Umm Salamah that the Messenger of Allah SAWS assembled Faatimah, Hasan, and Husayn, then brought them under his thawb, and said: “Oh Allah, these are the people of my household”. Then Umm Salamah said: ‘Oh Messenger of Allah, bring me in with them’. He said: “Indeed you are from my household”.

3.
ومن حديث هاشم بن هاشم بن عتبة بن أبي وقاص ، عن عبد الله بن وهب ابن زمعة قال : أخبرتني أم سلمة رضي الله عنها ، أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم جمع وفاطمة ، والحسن ، والحسين ، رضي الله عنهم ، ثم أدخلهم تحت ثوبه ، ثم جأر إلى الله تعالى وقال : « « هؤلاء أهل بيتي . فقالت أم سلمة : يا رسول الله أدخلني معهم ، قال : إنك من أهلي »

Umm Salamah رضي الله عنها reported to me that the Messenger of Allâh (صلى الله عليه وسلم) collected Fâtimah, al-Hasan, al-Husayn رضي الله عنهم then he entered them under his cloak, then he called upon Allâh Most High and said: “These are the members of my household”. Then Umm Salamah رضي الله عنها said: O Messenger of Allâh enter me with them, he said: Verily, you are form my family”. [Maqrizi Fadail ahlalbayt p 26]

4 . حدثنا عبد الله حدثني أبي حدثنا أبو النضر هاشم بن القاسم حدثنا عبد الحميد يعني ابن بهرام قال حدثني شهر بن حوشب قال سمعت أم سلمة زوج النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم حين جاء نعي الحسين بن علي لعنت أهل العراق فقالت: قتلوه قتلهم الله غروه وذلوه لعنهم الله فإني رأيت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم جاءته فاطمة غدية ببرمة قد صنعت له فيها عصيدة تحمله في طبق لها حتى وضعتها بين يديه فقال لها: أين ابن عمك قالت: هو في البيت قال: فاذهبي فادعيه وائتني بابنيه قالت: فجاءت تقود ابنيها كل واحد منهما بيد وعلي يمشي في أثرهما حتى دخلوا على رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم فأجلسهما في حجره وجلس علي عن يمينه وجلست فاطمة عن يساره قالت: أم سلمة فاجتبذ من تحتي كساء خيبريا كان بساطا لنا على المنامة في المدينة فلفه النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم عليهم جميعا فأخذ بشماله طرفي الكساء وألوى بيده اليمنى إلى ربه عز وجل وقال: اللهم أهلي اذهب عنهم الرجس وطهرهم تطهيرا اللهم أهل بيتي اذهب عنهم الرجس وطهرهم تطهيرا اللهم أهل بيتي أذهب عنهم الرجس وطهرهم تطهيرا. قلت يا رسول الله ألست من أهلك قال بلى فادخلي في الكساء قالت: فدخلت في الكساء بعد ما قضى دعاءه لابن عمه علي وابنيه وابنته فاطمة رضي الله عنهم.

Shahr narrated to us, he said: I heard Umm Salamah, when the news of the death of Al-Husien ibn Ali came to her, she said: They killed him, May Allah kill them, and they humilated him May Allah curse them. For I saw the Messenger of Allah [Salah Allah ‘Alaihi wa Salam] and Fatima had come to him one day with a Burmah (a pot, pan, or jar … was made from stone in the past) of hers from which she made a ‘Asida (a dish made by mixing flour with ghee, butter, etc and then cooked) carrying it in a plate of hers, until she placed it in front of him.
He told her: «Where is your cousin?» She said: He is at home. [So] he said: go and call him, and bring forth your sons.

She (i.e. Um Salama) said: she came leading her sons each one of them, and Ali walking on their trail, until they entered upon the Messenger of Allah [Salah Allah ‘Alaihi wa Salam]. He sat them (i.e Al-Hasan & Al-Husien) on his lap, and Ali sat on his right, and Fatima sat on his left.

Umm Salama said: he pulled a cloak (a Kisa) from under me … and then he [Salah Allah ‘Alaihi wa Salam] wrapped it around them all, taking the edges of the Cloak by his left hand, and pointing with his right hand towards his Lord [Exalted and Glorified is He] and said: “O Allah, remove from them the Rijs (evil deeds and sins, etc.), and purify them with a thorough purification”, three times.

She said: [So] I said: O Messenger of Allah, am I not [also] from your Ahl?

[So] he said: Yes, Indeed, [you are].

He said: So enter the Kisa (the cloak) [too].

She said: So I entered after he completed his supplication to his cousin Ali, his sons, and his daughter Fatima [‘Alaihim Al Salam]. (Musnad ibn Hanbal, v6,p298)

5 . Reported Ali ibn Harb Mausuli, from Zyed ibn Habab, Husayn ibn Vakad, Yazeed Nakhu, from Ikrima, from ibn Abbas, that he said about this verse: “O people of the House! and to purify you a (thorough) purifying” —“it was revealed concerning to wifes of prophet “. (see also “Siyar alamun nubala” by Zahabi 2/208) (Ibn Kasir in his commentary (6/410))

And the same was reported by Suyuti in “Durr al mansur” with refference to ibn Asakir and Abu Hatim.

Abu’l-Qasim ‘Abd al-Rahman ibn Muhammad al-Sarraj informed us> Muhammad ibn Ya‘qub> al-Hasan ibn ‘Ali ibn ‘Affan> Abu Yahya al-Hamani> Salih ibn Musa al-Qurashi> Khusayf> Sa‘id ibn Jubayr> Ibn ‘Abbas who said: “This verse was revealed about the wives of the Prophet, Allah bless him and give him peace (Allah’s wish is but to remove uncleanness far from you, O Folk of the Household, and cleanse you with a thorough cleansing)”.

7 . Aqil ibn Muhammad al-Jurjani informed us (through a verbal authorisation)> al-Mu‘afa ibn Zakariyya al-Qadi> Muhammad ibn Jarir> Ibn Humayd> Yahya ibn Wadih> al-Asbagh> ‘Alqamah> ‘Ikrimah who said, regarding the words of Allah, exalted is He (Allah’s wish is but to remove uncleanness far from you, O Folk of the Household): “This verse was not revealed about whom you think it was revealed. Rather, it is about the wives of the Prophet, Allah bless him and give him peace”. ‘Ikrimah used to proclaim this in the marketplace.

8.Imam Suyuti (rah) quotes this hadith:

وأخرج ابن سعد عن عروة رضي الله عنه { إنما يريد الله ليذهب عنكم الرجس أهل البيت } قال: يعني أزواج النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم نزلت في بيت عائشة رضي الله عنها

Imam Ibn S’ad (ra) narrates from Urwa (ra) who said: Ahlul Bayt refers to wives of Prophet (Peace be upon him). This verse was revealed regarding Hadrat Aisha (ra). (Tabaqat, Ibn Sad narrated in volume 8, p 199)

NOTE: We know that the shias who posses hatred for the complete ahlebayt of prophet(Saw) might try to reject all these narrations because of the obvious hatred they have for some of the wives of prophet(Saw), so for such shias we kindly request them to refer the basic rule we had set, before taking any nonsense step. Because the narrations we have brought forth are in accordance with the explicit verses of quran, so if you try to bring any narration to reject these proofs then beware you are going to violate the basic rule taught by your infallible imams.

An important rule taught by Ahlelbayt, which needs to be followed.
