Al-Haakim al-Haskaani narrates vide his chain of narrators that when the verse, โ€œSay I donโ€™t ask you any reward for my prophethood except the love of my closest relativesโ€ Ibn Abbas reports, โ€œThe people asked, โ€˜O Messenger of Allah! Who are these we are ordered to love them?โ€™ He (peace be upon him and his holy progeny) replied, โ€œAli, Fatima and their progeny.โ€


  • In other traditions, in the same reference, the names Imam Hasan (peace be upon him) and Imam Husain (peace be upon him) have also come.
  • Hakim Haskani is a well-known scholar of Ahl Tasannun. He is from Haskaan which is in Neshapour in Iran. The narrator is Ibn Abbas, which shows the importance of the narration.
  • It is obvious that Allah has not ordered to love the relatives who were sinners, transgressors and disbelievers. He also did not order to love the relatives who were ordinary believers. The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him and his holy progeny) clearly specified those who ought to be loved.

One of them is the canard that Abu Bakr was
