Ahle Bayt (a.s.) in Quran (Surah Baqarah)

In The Name Of Allah, The Most Beneficent, The Most Merciful

There are 13 verses in Surah Baqarah that refer to Ahlul Byt (a.s.) as per Ahle Sunnah narrations. The first two are:

هُدًى لِّلْمُتَّقِينَ ﴿٢ الَّذِينَ يُؤْمِنُونَ بِالْغَيْبِ

… is a guide to those who guard (against evil). Those who believe in the unseen.

Ahlulbayt_by_hanisalamHafiz Sueliman Al Qundoozi al Hanafi narrates from a chain through Jaabir ibn Abdullah al Ansari (r.a.) that Jandal ibn Junadah (A Jew) came to Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.a.) and questioned him regarding a few things on Islam. He asked he Prophet (s.a.w.a.) who is successors would be. Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.a.) then told him the number of successors that would come after him.

….And after Hasan Al-Askari (a.s.) (11th Imam) there will be his son who will be called the ‘Mahdi’, ‘Al Qaem’ ‘Al Hujjah’. He will go into occultation (ghaibat). When he will reappear, he will the earth with justice and equality as it was fraught with injustice and oppression. Good news is for the one who keeps patience when he is in occultation. There is good news for those who guard against evil and love him. It is for this Allah says:

هُدًى لِّلْمُتَّقِينَ ﴿٢ الَّذِينَ يُؤْمِنُونَ بِالْغَيْبِ

is a guide to those who guard (against evil). Those who believe in the unseen

وَبَشِّرِ‌ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ أَنَّ لَهُمْ جَنَّاتٍ تَجْرِ‌ي مِن تَحْتِهَا الْأَنْهَارُ‌ ۖ كُلَّمَا رُ‌زِقُوا مِنْهَا مِن ثَمَرَ‌ةٍ رِّ‌زْقًا ۙ قَالُوا هَـٰذَا الَّذِي رُ‌زِقْنَا مِن قَبْلُ ۖ وَأُتُوا بِهِ مُتَشَابِهًا ۖ وَلَهُمْ فِيهَا أَزْوَاجٌ مُّطَهَّرَ‌ةٌ ۖ وَهُمْ فِيهَا خَالِدُونَ

And convey good news to those who believe and do good deeds, that they shall have gardens in which rivers flow; whenever they shall be given a portion of the fruit thereof, they shall say: This is what was given to us before; and they shall be given the like of it, and they shall have pure mates in them, and in them, they shall abide.

Allama Hanafi Haaqit Abdullah who is famous as Al-Haskani quotes a relaible chain before narrating from Ibn Abbas, who says the verse of quran which says and convey good news (Surah Baqarah 25) is specially for Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.a.), Imam Ali (a.s.) and Ahlul Bayt (a.s.).
