Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala) has commanded us to love the Family of the Holy prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) i.e. through the Holy Quran – (Surah Shu'ra-23).

It is mentioned in the Hadith, "You instruct your children in 3 things: love of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam), love of His Ahle Bait and the recitation of the Holy Quran. As Allah's says in Surah Ahzaab
This verse of the Holy Quran establishes that the Ahle Bait are shielded from all kinds of blemishes, whether they are intellectual blemishes or blemishes of belief.

The background of the revelation of this verse, Hadhrat Umme Salma (May Allah SWT be well pleased with her) relates, "This verse was revealed when the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) was present in my house. After this verse was revealed, the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) summoned Hadhrat Fatima (May Allah SWT be well pleased with her), Hadhrat Ali (May Allah SWT be well pleased with him), Imam Hasan (May Allah SWT be well pleased with him) and Imam Hussain (May Allah SWT be well pleased with him). Then the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: These are my Ahle Bait. Hadhrat Umme Salma (May Allah SWT be well pleased with her) entreated: O Prophet of Allah (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam): Am I not from the Ahle Bait? He (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: Certainly, you are also from My Ahle Bait."

LOVE OF THE PROPHET'S AHLE BAIT AND HIS COMPANIONS IS A SIGN OF THE AHLE SUNNAH:
There is a Hadith in Jame Tirmidhi. It has been narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Abdullah bin Abbas (May Allah SWT be well pleased with them) that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: "Love Allah SWT as He grants you bounties (ni'mah). Love Me to love Allah SWT and love my Ahle Bait to love Me."
The grace and benevolence of Allah SWT demand that we should love Him. To be able to love Allah SWT, we should love the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) and to be able to love the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam), the Ahle Bait of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) should be loved.
It is as if the love of the Ahle Bait of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) is a step towards the love of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam). Whoever desires proximity (closeness) with Allah SWT and wants to be summoned unto His presence, the only way for this is to love the Prophet's Ahle Bait. This love will grant proximity with the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) and through the proximity of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam), the person will attain proximity of Allah.
There is a Hadith in Sunan Ibn Majah and Jame Tirmidhi.
The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: "By Him, who holds My life in His hands, Iman cannot even enter the heart of the person, who does not love you" (Ahle Bait).
In the Hadith of Ibn Majah, the words are "Until he loves them for the sake of Allah SWT and because of My relationship with them."

DEGREE OF LOVE:
The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) gave the command to love them and also described the degree of love.
Love makes a person blind and deaf i.e. the lover can neither see nor hear of any defect in his/her beloved.
The zenith of love is that the lover cannot notice any defect in the beloved even when it exists. These personalities whom Allah SWT and His Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) have commanded us to love, they themselves have vouched for their virtuousness and have negated the possibility of every blemish about them.
Even after this declaration by Allah SWT, if anyone attributes something inappropriate towards then, then that person is not raising objections against Imam Hussain (May Allah SWT be well pleased with him), instead that person is raising objections against the Holy Quran itself. Besides, that person is breaking the rules of love and is moving out of its pale.
The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) has not only commanded us to love His Ahle Bait, but has also given glad tidings of Jannah and intercession to those who love his Ahle Bait. My intercession is for those privileged people of the Ummah, who love My Ahle Bait.
There are 4 lucky people for whom I will intercede on the Day of Judgment.
1. One who respects My Ahle Bait
2. One who offers them what they need.
3. One who manages their affairs when they need it
4. One who loves them with his tongue and heart
There is a Hadith in Zujajatul Masabeeh on the authority of Musnad Ahmed.
Hadhrat Abuzar Ghifari says: "While I held the door of the Ka'aba, I heard the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) say: Behold! Verily, the example of My Ahle Bait among you is like the ark of Prophet Nooh (Alaihis salam). Whoever boards it, is saved and whoever stays back is destroyed."
