In The Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
When you pray, always pray for purification in all ramifications. Prophet Muhammad (SAW) specifically prayed for purification in his lifetime and for his household. Purification is very important as Muslims because, through it, we can get close to our Lord.
“When the Holy Prophet (S) observed that the Divine blessing was forthcoming, he said, ‘Call for me! Call for me!’ Safia asked ‘O Prophet of Allah! Whom should I call for you?’ He said, ‘Call for me the members of my family, namely, Ali, Fatima, Hasan, and Husain’ (May peace and benediction be upon them). They were thus called to come close to the Holy Prophet (S) and when all of them were gathered, the Holy Prophet (S) placed his cloak on them and thereafter raised his hands in supplication and said, ‘O Allah! These are the members of my family. Send your kind blessings on me and my progeny”. In the meantime Almighty Allah revealed the verse:
‘O people of the Prophet’s House! Allah intends but to remove all sorts of uncleanness and blemish from you and to purify you with a thorough purification.’ (Sura al-Ahzaab, 33:33)
After quoting this hadith Hakim says, ‘This hadith is authentic and correct as regards its sources.’
