Tags: Excellence of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.)
Imam Jafar Sadiq (a.s.) informed – Jibrail descended on Allah’s Messenger (s.a.w.a.) and said: O Muhammad, Allah sends greetings on you and says: Surely I have forbidden the Fire for one from whose loins you are born and in whose womb you were raised and the ones who supported you. Prophet (s.a.w.a.) said – O Jibrail, elaborate for me. Jibrail said – As for the loins from where you descended then it is Abdullah Ibn Abdil Muttalib (a.s.), as for the womb that raised you it is Amina Bint Wahab (s.a.) as for the ones who supported you they are Abu Talib Ibn Abdil Muttalib (a.s.) and Fatima Bint Asad (s.a.).
