There are “five” personalities for me through whose mediation I can extinguish the burning difficulties. Those are “Prophet Muhammad (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), Hazrat Ali, Hazrat Fatimah and Hasan and Husain”
The Glorious Qur’an says: انما یرید اﷲ لیذ ھب عنکم الرجس اھل البیت ویطھرکم تطھیرا
Allah only wishes to remove all abomination from you, ye members of the Family, and to make you pure and spotless. (Surah Ahzaab, verse 44)
Allama Abi Ja’far Muhammad bin Jareer Tabri (Allah’s mercy be upon him) (died in 310 Hijri) quotes a Hadith:
محمد بن المثنی قال ثنابکر بن یحییٰ بن زبان العنزی قال ثنا مندل عن الاعمش عن عطیۃ عن ابی سعید الخدری قال قال رسول اﷲ ﷺ نزلت ھذہ الاٰیۃ فی خمسۃ فیّ وفی علی رضی اﷲ عنہ وحسن رضی اﷲ عنہ وحسین رضی اﷲ عنہ وفاطمہ رضی اﷲ عنہا انما یرید اﷲ لیذھب عنکم الرجس اھل البیت ویطہرکم تطھیرا
that the The Holy Prophet (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said “This verse is revealed about the ‘Panjtan’. For me and Ali and Hasan and Hussain and Hazrat Fatimah (May Allah be pleased with them all), Verily Almighty Allah wants, O family of Prophet, that (He) keeps the impurity away from you and makes you pure and further very pure” (Jama al-Bayaan Fee Tafseer-ul-Qur’an, Volume 22, page 5, Published in Beirut in 1398 Hijri/1978)
The meaning of the word “Panjtan” is “five people”, and those are meant to be Hazrat Muhammad-ur-Rasoolullah (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), Hasnain Kareemain, Saiyidah Fatimah Zahrah and Hazrat Ali (May Allah be pleased with them all). And the verse of purification (of Qur’an) was revealed about these sacred personality in which the “purify and further purify” is present. Meaning Almighty Allah purifies you, purifying (‘paak’) which is very clear proof that the ‘Panjtan’ is really ‘Paak’.
