Conspiracy against Ahle Bait of the Holy Prophet
- :Qurrat-ul-Ain Abidiy
"Moawiya will not take any open or secret action against (Imam) Hasan bin Ali (as) or against Ahle Bait of the Holy Prophet (saww) and he will not try to terrorize them anywhere." 27
If this condition was violated or anyone else would harm the progeny of the Holy Prophet (saww), then the blame would come to Moawiya as it was his rule. Due to the high status and the popularity of the progeny of the Holy Prophet (saww) among the Muslims, any such conspiracy was not in the interest of Moawiya. Through this condition, in a way, it had become the responsibility of Moawiya to protect the life and honour of the progeny of the Holy Prophet (saww) and the Holy Ahle Bait (as).
