عَنِ النَّبِيِّ ﷺ اَنَّهُ قَالَ مَنْ مَاتَ عَلٰى حُبِّ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ مَاتَ شَهِيداً اَلَا وَ مَنْ مَاتَ عَلٰى حُبِّ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ مَاتَ مَغْفُوراً لَهُ اَلَا وَ مَنْ مَاتَ عَلٰى حُبِّ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ مَاتَ تَائِباً اَلَا وَ مَنْ مَاتَ عَلٰى حُبِّ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ مَاتَ مُؤْمِناً مُسْتَكْمِلَ الْاِيمَانِ اَلَا وَ مَنْ مَاتَ عَلٰى حُبِّ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ بَشَّرَهُ مَلَكُ الْمَوْتِ بِالْجَنَّةِ ثُمَّ مُنْكَرٌ وَ نَكِيرٌ اَلَا وَ مَنْ مَاتَ عَلٰى حُبِّ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ يُزَفُّ اِلَى الْجَنَّةِ كَمَا تُزَفُّ الْعَرُوسُ اِلَى بَيْتِ زَوْجِهَا اَلَا وَ مَنْ مَاتَ عَلٰى حُبِّ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ ﷺ فُتِحَ لَهُ فِي قَبْرِهِ بَابَانِ اِلَى الْجَنَّةِ اَلَا وَ مَنْ مَاتَ عَلٰى حُبِّ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ جَعَلَ اللَّهُ قَبْرَهُ مَزَارَ مَلَائِكَةِ الرَّحْمَةِ اَلَا وَ مَنْ مَاتَ عَلٰى حُبِّ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ مَاتَ عَلَى السُّنَّةِ وَ الْجَمَاعَةِ اَلَا وَ مَنْ مَاتَ عَلٰى بُغْضِ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ جَاءَ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ مَكْتُوبٌ بَيْنَ عَيْنَيْهِ آيِسٌ مِنْ رَحْمَةِ اللّهِ اَلَا وَ مَنْ مَاتَ عَلٰى بُغْضِ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ مَاتَ كَافِراً اَلَا وَ مَنْ مَاتَ عَلٰى بُغْضِ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ لَمْ يَشَمَّ رَائِحَةَ الْجَنَّة

The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him and his holy progeny) said, “Whoever dies on the love of the progeny of Muhammad dies a martyr; know that whoever dies on the love of the progeny of Muhammad dies a forgiven one; know that whoever dies on the love of the progeny of Muhammad dies a repentant one; know that whoever dies on the love of the progeny of Muhammad dies a believer whose faith is complete; know that whoever dies on the love of the progeny of Muhammad the angel of death will give him glad-tidings of paradise, followed by Munkar and Nakeer (in giving glad-tidings); know that whoever dies on the love of the progeny of Muhammad he will be carried to Paradise like a bride is carried to the house of her groom; know that whoever dies on the love of the progeny of Muhammad two doors to Paradise are opened for him in his grave; know that whoever dies on the love of the progeny of Muhammad Allah will make his grave as a place of visitation for the angels of mercy; and know that whoever dies on the love of the progeny of Muhammad dies on the Sunnah and the Jam’ah; know that whoever dies on the hatred of the progeny of Muhammad will come on the Day of Judgment while it is written on his forehead ‘He has despaired from the mercy of Allah’; know that whoever dies on the hatred of the progeny of Muhammad dies an unbeliever; know that whoever dies on the hatred of the progeny of Muhammad will not even smell the fragrance of Paradise.”

Note:

To understand the meaning of the above narration, one must read the importance of a martyr in the books of traditions, like Baab Fazl al-Shahaadah in Kaafi.

His faith will become perfect in one flash, even if he was not having proper faith. Obviously, such narrations are difficult to digest but they are as they are.

Zaffa – yazuffu means the angels will take him in congregation with a lot of care.

Sunnah implies the word, act or silence of infallible guides (peace be upon him).

Human co-operation, congregation and large numbers help only in wordly matters but not in divine affairs. If all humans gather together on a false matter, will it be correct? No. In Islam, the criterion for consensus is truth.

“Repeat a lie so many times that it becomes more reliable than the truth” goes a famous proverb. Some Ahle Tasannun scholars – in their attempt to glorify their leaders – have fabricated and spread such lies that these have become like “famous truths” today. One of them is the canard that Abu Bakr was
