Is this (virtue) for the family of Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) alone, for they are indeed worthy of virtue which is bestowed to them alone, or is it for all Muslims in general?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “For the family of Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) especially and for all Muslims in general (as well).” (At-Targheeb wat Tarheeb vol. 2 pg. 154)
