Status of Imam Husayn (a.s.) in the Verse of Purification (Tathir)
- :Al-Balagh Foundation
"Allah only wishes to keep away uncleanness from you (Household of the Prophet) and purify you thoroughly."
Holy Qur'an (33:33)
Traditionists say, regarding the reason this verse was revealed, that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) called for a shawl. With it he covered Ali, Fatimah, Hassan and Hussein (a.s.). "O my Lord," he said, "these are the members of my family. Remove uncleanness from them and purely purify them." 3 and so this noble verse was revealed on this occasion. It is a testimony by Allah, the Blessed and Exalted, on the purity of the Prophetic house (Ahlul Bait (a.s.)) and their great stature.
