Ahle Bayt

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: In the books of ahadeeth, there are numerous instance like Hadeeth e Kisa or the incident of Mubahala where there is only the presence of Hazrat Fatima recorded. Whereas Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) had 3 more daughters, and during these two incidences at least 2 daughters apart from Hazrat Fatima were alive. Apart from these two incidences, there are many hadeeths in which the position of Hazrat Fatima is extolled and there is hardly any reference of Ruqayyah bint Muhammad, Umm Kulthum bint Muhammad, Zainab bint Muhammad. They also don’t feature among the Ahle Bayt, wherever that reference is found in the books of hadeeth.


A: The other daughters being ahle bayt is obvious. There is no need to add any additional virtue, for their virtue is very close to Hadhrat Faatimah (radhiyallahu anha).

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
