Prophet(saws) HIMSELF Named All 12 successors, the Imams by name. 3 Part series

Ahlulbayt(as) in the Quran
1."Verily,Allah has decreed to purify you, O ' Ahlul Bayt, and sanctify you in a perfect way” Sura Ahzab no.33:33 Sunni refrences
إنَّمَا يُرِيدُ اللَّهُ لِيُذْهِبَ عَنكُمُ الرِّجْسَ أَهْلَ الْبَيْتِ وَيُطَهِّرَكُمْ تَطْهِيرًا

2.Love (Mawaddat) of the Prophets Family ( Qurba) is the mandatory recompense ( Ajr)for his efforts/services Quran 42:23 ;Declare [O' Muhammad]: “I ask you of no recompense for my toil except the love for my kin (family).”There is no ambiguity in this.
قُل لا أَسْأَلُكُمْ عَلَيْهِ أَجْرًا إِلا الْمَوَدَّةَ فِي الْقُرْبَى وَمَن يَقْتَرِفْ حَسَنَةً نَّزِدْ لَهُ فِيهَا حُسْنًا إِنَّ اللَّهَ غَفُورٌ شَكُورٌ

Further Quran 25:56 clearly explains that this reward is for us & is the ONLY way to our lord.
Say, ‘I do not ask you any reward for it, except that anyone who wishes should take the way to his Lord.’
قُلْ مَا أَسْأَلُكُمْ عَلَيْهِ مِنْ أَجْرٍ إِلَّا مَن شَاءَ أَن يَتَّخِذَ إِلَىٰ رَبِّهِ سَبِيلًا ﴿٥٧﴾
It can be noted both sentences begin with "I do not ask you any reward" The clear conclusion from putting both these verses together is that; the Love of Ahlulbayt(as)( Ajr sought) IS because its for our benefit& puts us on the ONLY way to our lord.

3) "Wali" (overlord ) along with Allah (swt) and the Prophet(saw),who gives zakat whilst bowing in Rukoo.- Q 5:55
referring to Imam Ali(as) who gave his ring in charity whilst in rukoo.
4) 'Ul ul-'amr " (those vested with Authority) whose obedience along with Allah (swt) and HIS Prophet(saws) is compulsory- Q 4:59
5) "Abna, Nisa and Anfos" (sons, women, self) who accompanied Prophet(saw) in the Mubahila victory.- Q 3:61
6) "Ahlul Dhikr" (Folks of the Quran)- to whom we are commanded to ask what we do not know. - Q 16:43.
7) "Rasikhoon fil I'lm" (erudite in knowledge of the Divine) who know the inner meaning of Quran-Q 3: 7.
8) "Aal" (Family) who must be compulsorily saluted in tashahud for the obligatory prayer to be valid.- Q 33:56
