Hadith on Tawhid: The Prophet cannot protect his relatives from Allah

Aisha reported: When the verse was revealed, “Warn your tribe and nearest kindred,” (26:214), the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, stood upon mount Safa and he said, “O Fatima, daughter of Muhammad! O Safiya, daughter of Abdul Muttalib! O sons of Abdul Muttalib! I have no power at all to protect you from Allah, but you may ask me for some of my property as you wish.”

عَنْ عَائِشَةَ قَالَتْ لَمَّا نَزَلَتْ وَأَنْذِرْ عَشِيرَتَكَ الْأَقْرَبِينَ قَامَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ عَلَى الصَّفَا فَقَالَ يَا فَاطِمَةُ بِنْتَ مُحَمَّدٍ يَا صَفِيَّةُ بِنْتَ عَبْدِ الْمُطَّلِبِ يَا بَنِي عَبْدِ الْمُطَّلِبِ لَا أَمْلِكُ لَكُمْ مِنْ اللَّهِ شَيْئًا سَلُونِي مِنْ مَالِي مَا شِئْتُمْ
