In this amazing video, Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi divulges details on the life and times of Abdullah Ibn Abbas RA – the Habr of the Ummah and Tarjuman Al Quran and the status of Ahl al Bayt for the Muslim Ummah.
Shaykh Yasir commences the talk by the analysing the term Ahl Al Bayt and what has been set as the most apt meaning of this term by the lexicons. We also gather information on the extreme love and care that the Prophet ﷺ had for his family.
Ahl Al Bayt has come to include the following:

Shaykh Yasir also goes on to divulge statements on the importance of the Ahl Al Bayt by quoting a Hadith narrated by at-Tirmidhi: “I am leaving among you that which, if you hold fast to it, you will never go astray after I am gone, and one of the two is greater than the other: the Book of Allah, which is a rope extended from heaven to earth, and my family, the people of my household (ahl bayti). These two will never be separated until they come to me at the Cistern, so watch how you deal with them after I am gone.”
We are also enlightened about the meanings of the words Nasl and Sharaf and how these are different from each other and how it plays a magnanimous role in the life of an individual. The difference between Ahl and Aal is next in the discussion and explicit information is shared to tell them apart.
It is also affirmed that Hassan and Hussain RA are the confirmed Nasl of the Prophet ﷺ although they are the progeny of his daughter, Fatima RA. this is elucidated with the help of a Hadith.
