Benefit: Ibn ʿAbbās Subdued Innovation

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

On the authority of ʿIkrimah [d. 104 AH]1: "Ibn ʿAbbās [d. AH 68], said: 'By Allāh, I don't think there is anyone on the face of the earth whom Shayṭān would love to see destroyed more than me.' So someone said: 'What do you mean by this statement?' So Ibn ʿAbbās said: 'By Allāh, there isn't an innovation that occurs in the East or the West, then a man conveys it to me - so when it comes to my attention, I subdue it (i.e. that innovation) with the Sunnah, so it (i.e. that innovation) is returned back to [and confined to its originator].'"2 May Allāh make us from those who are given the knowledge and the ability to defend Allāh's religion by subduing innovation and false principles.1
 
1) TN: ʿAbdullāh Ibn ʿAbbās [d. 68 AH] was the cousin of the Messenger of Allāh, prayers and peace upon him. The Messenger of Allāh, prayers and peace upon him, supplicated for him that he be given understanding of the Qurʾān. As a result, Ibn ʿAbbās became known to the Muslim Nation as "The Explainer of the Qurʾān."
2) ʿIkrimah Abū ʿAbdullāh [d. 104 AH] was a scholar of Tafsīr and the freed slave of Ibn ʿAbbās. [al-Taqreeb: pg. 687/#4707]
