Authenticity of Hadith Al-Kisa’

Q: What is your opinion regarding Hadith Al-Kisa’? Have you had your doubts about it?

A: With regards to the incident of Al-Kisa’ and the revelation of the purification Ayah [whereby the Messenger identified who the Household Members are], they are established as true. However, the remaining part of the Hadith, in the way it is narrated in Mafatih Al-Jinan, is not proven as authentic, so it should be dealt with cautiously, because it may lead to what is not legitimate considering the wrong concepts it includes.
