Tradition

Mamoon al-Rashid asked Imam Ali b. Moosa al-Reza (a.s.), ‘Did Allah give distinction to the Prophet’s (s.a.w.a.) progeny over other people?’
Imam (a.s.) said, ‘Allah gave distinction to the Prophet’s (s.a.w.a.) progeny over other people in the Book.’
Mamoon asked him, ‘Where is that in Allah’s Book?’
Imam (a.s.) informed, ‘Indeed Allah says – Surely Allah chose Adam and Nuh and the descendants of Ibrahim and the descendants of Imran above the nations. Offspring one of the other; and Allah is Hearing, Knowing.’ (Surah Ale Imraan (3): 33-34)
