Dealing With Innovation


Dealing With Innovation

Whoever innovates or accommodates an innovator…

The Messenger of Allaah (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) said:

((Whoever innovates or accommodates an innovator then upon him is the curse of Allaah, His Angels and the whole of mankind)).

al-Bukhaaree (12/41) and Muslim (9/140)

 

Indeed the most detestable of things to Allaah are…

Ibn ‘Abbaas (radhi-yallaahu ‘anhumaa) said:

Every innovation is misguidance, even if…

Ibn ‘Umar (radhi-yallaahu ‘anhumaa) said:

((Every innovation is misguidance, even if the people see it as something good)).

Abu Shaamah (no. 39)

Innovation is more beloved to Iblees…

Sufyaan ath-Thowree (rahima-hullaah) mentions:

((Innovation is more beloved to Iblees than sin, since a sin may be repented from but innovation is not repented from)).

al-Laalikaa’ee – Sharh Usool I’tiqaad Ahlis-Sunnah wal-Jamaa’ah (no. 238)

 

…and they used to forbid from accompanying the people of innovation

al-Fudayl bin ‘Iyaad (rahima-hullaah) mentions:

((I met the best of people, all of them people of the Sunnah and they used to forbid from accompanying the people of innovation)).

al-Laalikaa’ee – Sharh Usool I’tiqaad Ahlis-Sunnah wal-Jamaa’ah (no.267)

 

Do not sit with the people of innovation and desires…

al-Hasan al-Basree (rahima-hullaah) mentions:

((Do not sit with the people of innovation and desires, nor argue with them, nor listen to them)).

Sunan ad-Daarimee (1/121)

 

Whoever honours an innovator…

Ibraaheem ibn Maysarah (rahima-hullaah) mentions:

((Whoever honours an innovator has aided in the destruction of Islaam)).

al-Laalikaa’ee – Sharh Usool I’tiqaad Ahlis-Sunnah wal-Jamaa’ah (1/139)

 

Whoever listens to an innovator…

Sufyaan ath-Thowree (rahima-hullaah) mentions:

((Whoever listens to an innovator has left the protection of Allaah and is entrusted with the innovation)).

Abu Nu’aym in al-Hilyah (7/26) and Ibn Battah (no.444)

 

The innovators are like scorpions…

Imaam al-Barbahaaree (rahima-hullaah) mentions:

((The innovators are like scorpions. They bury their heads and bodies in the sand and leave their tails out. When they get the chance they sting; the same with the innovators who conceal themselves amongst the people, when they are able, they do what they desire)).

Reported in ((Tabaqaatul-Hanaabilah)) – Volume 2, Page 44 and ((Manhajul-Ahmad))

Sharhus-Sunnah – Imaam al-Barbahaaree

 

A sign of the people of innovation is…

Abu Haatim (rahima-hullaah) said:

((A sign of the people of innovation is their battling against the people of Narrations)).

Sharh Usool I’tiqaad Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jamaa’ah – al-Laalikaa’ee – Volume 1, Page 179

 

Whoever belittles the Ahlul-Hadeeth…

as-Saffaareenee (rahima-hullaah) said:

((And we are not focusing on mentioning the virtues of the people of Hadeeth, for indeed their virtues are well known and their merits are many. So whoever belittles them, then he is despicable and lowly. And whoever hates them, then he is from the backward party of the Devil)).

Lawaa.ihul-Anwaar – Volume 2, Page 355

 

The signs of the people of innovation are clear and obvious…

Imaam Abu ‘Uthmaan as-Saaboonee (rahima-hullaah) said:

((The signs of the people of innovation are clear and obvious. The most apparent of their signs is their severe enmity for those who carry the reports of the Prophet)).

The ‘Aqeedah of the (Pious) Predecessors – Page 101

 

Whoever listens to a person of innovation…

Muhammad ibn Ahmad ibn al-Qaasim related to us, saying: Ahmad ibn al-Hasan narrated to us saying: Sulaymaan ibn al-Ash’ath narrated to us, saying: ‘Abdullaah ibn Chubbi al-Anteeq narrated to us, saying: Yaws ibn Asbaat narrated to us, saying: I heard Muhammad ibn an-Nadr al-Haarithee say:

((Whoever listens to a person of innovation – and knows that he is a person of innovation – then protection is taken away from him, and he is left to himself)).

al-Imaam al-Haafiz Abul-Qaasim Habatullaah ibn al-Hasan ibn Mansoor at-Tabaree al-Laalikaa’ee (d.418 A.H.) reports in his “Sharh Usool I’tiqaad Ahlis-Sunnah wal-Jamaa’ah” – Volume 1 Pages 135-136 No. 252
