How to have the proper understanding of the position of Ahlul Bait (AS)?

SHAFAQNA – One day Hareth Hamedani went to see Imam Ali (AS), and Imam (AS) asked him about the purpose of his visit. Hareth replied: Your love brought me here. Confirming Hareth’s comment, Imam Ali (AS) said: Swear to Allah (SWT); this is true, no other motivation except our love made you to come here. Then, to thank Hareth for his kindness, Imam Ali (AS) said: Beware that no friend of ours, will die unless at the time of death, will see me the way that he/she likes; and also no enemy of ours will die unless at the time of his death, will see me whilst he/she does not want to see me, he/she sees me and he/she feels ashamed [1]. In another narration, Imam Ali (AS) said: Avoid exaggerating in your display of love and affection towards us (the Ahlul Bait (AS)), and believe that we (the Ahlul Bait (AS)) have been created and nurtured by Allah (SWT), and then say whatever you like to say about our virtues [2].
