HOLY HOUSEHOLD

Project :: HOLY HOUSEHOLD


Holy Household (Ahl Bayt)


Ahl al-Bayt or ‘Sayyids’ are at the forefront of the Ummah in Divine favour because of their privileged connection of being the family of the Messenger of Allah, Sayyiduna Muhammad, upon him and them blessings and peace.

It is recorded in a hadith Prophet Muhammad (upon him and them blessings and peace): “I swear by the one who holds my soul in His Hand that these people cannot be believers unless they love you (Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) uncle of Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him)) and my relatives.” (Tirmidhi).

However, we cannot give any charity (zakah, sadaqa, etc.) to this blessed household and their descendants, as this is not befitting for them. We could present gifts to the members of the family as a mark of respect, honour and love. As the Hadith below clearly states:

‘The (charities) are not permissible for Prophet Muhammad (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) nor for the family of Muhammad (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him)’. (Malik Muwatta’).

There are many blessed descendent of the Prophet Muhammad (Peace and blessing be upon him) around the world, who are in difficult social, economic & financial situations and are unable to fulfil the needs. Dabbagh Welfare Trust are honoured to serve and offer gifts as a token of love and respect to these blessed descendants. Anyone wishing to participate in these noble cause to show a gesture of Love for these blessed descendants are invited to join us in this honoured effort.
