Hopes for Others and Ourselves

Should we love the Ahl al-Bayt so much that we believe that not a single descendant of the Prophet will enter the Hellfire?

Answered by Sayyidi Habib Umar bin Hafiz (may Allah protect him and benefit us by him)

As far as others are concerned, we should hope and believe that every believer will enter Paradise, not to mention the pious, the Companions and the Ahl al-Bayt. As for ourselves, our hope and fear should be as Sayyiduna Umar said: “If a voice called out on the Day of Judgement, ‘Let everyone enter Paradise except one person,’ I would fear to be that person. And if a voice called out, ‘Let everyone enter the Hellfire except one person,’ I would hope to be that person.”
