رَسُولَ اللّهِ ﷺ يَقُولُ مَنْ اَحَبَّ اَنْ يَحْيَا حَيَاتِي وَ يَمُوتَ مِيتَتِي وَ يَدْخُلَ الْجَنَّةَ الَّتِي وَعَدَنِي رَبِّي فَلْيَتَوَلَّ عَلِيَّ بْنَ اَبِي طَالِبٍ وَ ذُرِّيَّتَهُ الطَّاهِرِينَ اَئِمَّةَ الْهُدَى وَ مَصَابِيحَ الدُّجَى مِنْ بَعْدِهِ فَاِنَّهُمْ لَنْ يُخْرِجُوكُمْ مِنْ بَابِ الْهُدَى اِلَى بَابِ الضَّلَالَةِ

The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him and his holy progeny) said,

‘Whoever loves that he should live my life, die my death and enter the Paradise that my Lord has promised me, then he must accept the mastership of Ali Ibn Abi Talib (peace be upon him) and his pure progeny, the Imams of guidance and the lamps in darkness after him. Surely, they will never bring you out from the door of guidance to the door of deviation and misguidance.’

Note:

It is very important for a person to die a proper death on belief and faith and not an apostate.

The fate of Zubair Ibn Awaamm

فأنفذه إلى أمير المؤمنينؑ فلما رأى رأس الزبير و سيفه قال ناولني السيف فناوله فهزه و قال سيف طالما قاتل به بين يدي رسول الله ﷺ و لكن الحين و مصارع السوء ثم تفرس في وجه الزبير و قال لقد كان لك برسول الله ﷺ صحبة و منة قرابة و لكن الشيطان دخل منخريك فأوردك هذا المورد

The real Khaareji were Talhah and Zubair. For, but for these two, the Battle of Siffeen wouldn’t have occurred and if there was no battle of Siffeen, the Khawaarej would not take place.

The Ahle Bait (peace be upon them) did not enjoy such a position only because of their relationship with the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him and his holy progeny) because there were many other close relatives who were deviated.

None except the Ahle Bait (peace be upon them) are the lamps in darkness. In the physical presence of infallible Imams (peace be upon them), it is prohibited to use one’s own jurisprudence. For example, Umar Ibn al-Khattaab issued an edict for the prohibition of temporary marriage (mut’ah al-nisaa) and Hajj tamattu, which were permissible during the time of the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him and his holy progeny). He even took pride in defying this order of the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him and his holy progeny) by saying, ‘There were two mut’ahs that were permissible during the time of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him and his holy progeny) but I prohibited them’. This quote is found in several books of all Muslims. Such defiance is unpardonable and beyond justification.
