Benefit: Warning from the People of Deviation, Innovations and Desires Is from the Foundations of Our Dīn (Religion)
In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
Warning from the people of deviation, innovations and desires is a foundation from the foundations of our Dīn [religion], so as to preserve the honourable Sharīʿah [Islamic legislation] and to protect the Muslims from the incorrect ʿaqīdah [creed] and from desires which destroy.
‘And when you [Muḥammad] see those who engage in a false conversation about Our Verses [of the Qurʾān] by mocking at them, stay away from them till they turn to another topic. And if Shayṭān causes you to forget, then after the remembrance sit not you in the company of those people who are the Ẓalimūn [polytheists and wrongdoers, etc.]’.
[Sūrah al-Anʿām, 6:68]
