Clarification on the Hadith of 'loving the Ahlul Bayt'

Question

I am confused about the hadith found in Sahih Muslim where Rasullulah (peace be upon him) says I am leaving two things the Quran and sunnah and the ahlul bayt. I heard from someone that the descendants of the Prophet(Peace be upon him) are always right at all time periods. I am confused on this matter.

Answer

This Hadith emphasizes the need to have love and care for the Ahlul Bayt (Family of Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam).

Loving the Ahlul Bayt is indeed an act of reward and is a part of loving Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) himself.
I haven’t seen any commentator stating that they will always be right at all times.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
