yes, Awan belong to family of Hazrat Ali(a.w.s). Hazrat Ali married a woman named Ume-ul-baneen(means mother of sons) , Hazrat Ali had 4 sons from um-ul baneen, four of them were martyred in kerbala. They were in troop of Hazrat Hussain(a.w.s). Awan are basicallyfamily of Hazrat Abbass( son of Ali from um-ul-baneen). hazrat Abbass was also called "Qamr-e-bani hashim" becoz he was very smart and brave. Um-ul baneen belonged to Bani hashim tribe. hazrat Abbass called him self as slave of Hazrat Imam Hussan and hazrat Imam Hussain. I am also awan , even today in my family, many people has atleast 3 sons and maximum 6 sons, this is from um-ul baneen, she also had 6 sons ( 4 her own childern and 2 Hazrat Fatima's childern). Um-ul baneengave love to Hazrat hassan and Hussain more then her own childern. All were martyred in Kerbala by yazeedi soldiers. after their death she requested people not to call her um-ul baneen anymore. Sultan Mehmood Ghaznavi invaded in Indo Pak sub continent through the Afghanistan gateway 17 times. Awan also helped them to spread islam as Awans belonged to great islamic soldiers ( Hazrat Abbass s/o hazrat Ali ). They came upto peshawar and then proceeded to Attock and Mahansera.
