Sinners From Ahlus Sunnah Are Better Than Ascetics From Ahlu Bid’ah

Abdullâh, the son of Al-Imâm Ahmad reports that his father, Al-Imâm Ahmad, said:

“The graves of Ahl Al-Sunnah who committed major sins are gardens (from Paradise) whilst the graves of the heretics (adherents of Bid’ah) who were ascetics are pits (from the Fire).

The sinners from Ahl Al-Sunnah are the beloved (awliyâ’) of Allâh, whereas the ascetics of Ahl Al-Bid’ah are the enemies of Allâh.”

[Ibn Abî Ya’lâ, Tabaqât Al-Hanâbilah Vol. 1 p182]
