Respect for the Ahlul Bayt

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I’ve been taught to follow the Quran and Sunnah. Many hadiths I’ve read say to follow Quran and Ahlul Bayt. Are those weak hadith or are there hadiths that say follow the Sunnah as well?


A: The teaching of deen is to follow the sunnat. Since we are taught to appreciate and respect, hence we respect and appreciate the Ahlul Bayt, being the family of Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam). Just as we will respect the children of the Sahaabah-e-Kiraam. We appreciate them, respect them and love them as well.

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