"...Allah desires only to keep away uncleanness from you O people of the House (Ahlul-Bait) and make you as pure as can be." Holy Qur'an (33:33)
Whoever studies the lives of the Ahlul-Bait (peace be upon them all) will at Once recognize the pivotal role they played and the great task they shouldered in shaping the destiny of Islam. Their glorious lives have always been a source of inspiration to the Muslims in every era and place, interacting with their consciousness, enriching their progress and upholding their Islamic heritage.
The Ahlul-Bait - (the Prophet's holy family) have formed a historical movement and impulsive force in the history of Islam and caused great social changes.
This is worth mentioning to understand the right path of the Imams of Ahlul-Bait (a.s.) and to comprehend the features of their school which contains the spirit of originality and motives. The Holy Qur'an singles out this term 'Ahlul-Bait' whereas the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.) specifies its confirmation. On one side, this entity is diagnosed after the disappearance of the period of prophethood which was led to grow ideological and political allegiance for the family members of the Holy Prophet and on the other side, some confrontations and conflicts from different fronts and coalitions, in the arena of political life of the Muslim society, started to appear against them. Consequently, ideological, political and bloody war was waged against them. Therefore, the Imams: Ali, Hasan and Husein and their grandsons became victims by such tragedies in which the Muslim nation lost the enlightened pioneers of its straight path and were forbidden from the gifts of truth and awareness.
Al-Balagh Foundation; a part of its mission, hopes, to present to its dear readers the holy family of the Prophet, to remove fiction from luminous facts in the history of our Muslim nation, to acquaint the ummah with their straight path and to make them choose the true guidance with its many features and principles.
We beseech Allah, the Most High, to aid and grant us success to accomplish this blessed duty. He is the best of helpers.
