He continued: O people, he who has known me, so he did and he who hasn’t, let him know that I am al-Hasan son of Alee, I am the Prophet’s son, I am the Vice™s son, I am the Harbinger’s (bringer of good tidings) son, I am the Warner’s son, I am the son of the Caller unto Allah by His leave, I am the son of the Light-giving Lamp, I am from the household whom Gabriel used to descend to and ascend from, I am from the household whom Allah Has put away from them abomination and cleansed them, I am from a household whom Allah made loving them a duty upon every Moslem, thus His saying to His Prophet (PBUHH): { Say: I do not ask of you a wage for this, except love for the kinsfolk; and whosver gains a good deed, We shall give him increase of good in respect of it}; so the meaning of gaining of the good deed is loving us, the Prophet’s Household.

Al-Tabaranie related a Hadith based on Alee Ibn Abdulaziz who based it on abu-Naim, Abdulsalam Ibn Harb and Yazeed Ibn abi-Ziad as follows: After leaving Aysha’s place the Prophet (PBUHH) passed by Fatima’s (PBUH) house and heard Husayn crying, so he said: Didn’t you know that his crying hurts me?References: Siyar Alam al-Nobala Ch.4 p.284/Al-Mojam al-Kabeer Ch.3 H.284 p.116/Noor al-Absar p.139/Kifayat al-Talib p.433

Al-Khawarizmy related a Hadith by the Messenger (PBUHH) saying: I am the scale of knowledge, Alee is its pans, al-Hasan and al-Husayn are its strings, Fatima is its hook and the imams of my community are its column; in it the works of those who love us and those who hate us are weighed.Reference: Maqtal al-Husayn by al-Khawarizmy Ch.1 p.107

Alee son of abu-Talib (PBUT) quoted the Prophet (PBUHH) as saying: I swear by the One in whose Hand my life is! A man’s soul ds not leave his body until it eats from the fruits of Paradise or from the Tree of Zakkoum (a tree in Hell), he sees Death’s Angel, he sees me, Alee, Fatima, al-Hasan and al-Husayn; if he used to love us, I will say O Death’s Angel, treat him gently because he used to love me and my household; and if he used to hate me and my household, I will say, O Death’s Angel, be severe towards him because he used to hate me and my household. Only a believer loves us and only a wretched hates us.
