I just thought that it would be beneficial to share this information from Tareekh Nisapur by Al-Hakim (p. 232):
Al-Hussain bin Dawud bin Ali bin Eisa bin Mohammed bin Al-Qassim bin Al-Hasan bin Zaid bin Al-Hasan bin Ali bin Abi Talib, according to Ibn Khuzaimah was the Imam of the Muslims in his time. He died in 355 AH.
Al-Hakim Al-Nisapuri, often seen as one of the more objective Sunnis (by Shias) due to his tashayyu states:
He was the shaikh of the aal of the Prophet (pbuh) in his times in Khurasan, and he was one of the closest people emotionally to the companions of the Prophet (pbuh). I accompanied him for a period of time, and I prayed with him the Friday prayers for ten something years, and I never heard him say the name of Uthman without him saying, “Ameer Al-Mu’mineen,” and he would cry. Nor would he mention A’isha without saying, “The sideeqa the daughter of al-sideeq the habeeba of the habeeb of the Prophet (pbuh),” and he would cry.
This was a scholar of ahlul-bayt, since ahlulbayt include the children of Al-Hasan, and isn’t restricted to fourteen individuals.Written by Farid Posted by 13S2010
