A Few Notes on the Evils of Innovation

   

A small article covering a few basic points that must be understood by every Muslim. In addition to establishing that Allāh commands us to follow the Sunnah, the article also focuses upon the fact that the Sunnah shall become corrupted, thus leaving a need for the religion to be purified from all innovations and additions.

A Noble Advice Concerning Clinging to the Manhaj of the Salaf

  al-ʿAllāmah Rabīʿ ibn Hādī al-Madkhalī

A short admonition on the importance of clinging to the correct manhaj. An exemplification of why this noble Salafī manhaj is the only way which will bring rectification and success to the ummah. The questions which follow underline the evils of Abū al-Fitan (al-Maʿribī) and his similitude to the methodology of Sayyid Qutb, the destruction of the manhaj of al-muwāzināt (counterbalancing the good and bad points of a person) and the mistake of carrying the mujmal upon the mufaṣṣal (the general over the specific), destruction upon the manhaj of salaf.

Being Balanced

   

How do we strike the balance in speaking out against the Muslims who innovate and deviate, yet stay merciful and kind with our Muslim brothers and sisters?

Benefit: "I Mix with the People of Bidʿah to Bring Them Close"

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

Nowadays, it is common to see some of the youth, impressed by themselves and what they perceive to have gathered of knowledge, to overrate themselves and believe that they can "bring the people of innovation close" by working with them or cooperating with them. They are heedless, not realising that they will be flattered with kindness, wealth and other forms of emotional blackmail. One of the major scholars of our time, may Allāh preserve him, comments on such a (innovated) notion in the name of 'cooperation and rectification': Shaykh Rabee Ibn Hadi al-Madkhali was asked, "When one of the brothers is advised not to walk with the people of innovation or sit with them, he responds, 'I am one who establishes principles for them?" The Shaykh answered, "If you were one who established principles, you would not have kept company with them, if you were one who established principles and knew the methodology of the Salaf and knew the dangers you were exposing yourself to, and knew those who have fallen victim from the likes of you, those who are deluded like you, by Allāh, if you were as you said, you would not have walked with the people of innovation. And many walk with the people of innovation with the argument that they are benefitting them! 'O my brother - they have not benefitted from the Scholars, so how will they be benefitted from you?!! They reject the statements of Ibn Baz (d.1420H) and the statements of al-Albani (d.1420H), al- 'Uthaymin (d.1421H) and others from the Imams of Islām and will take from you?!! This is delusion, and ninety-nine out of a hundred times, you will end up from their followers."1

Benefit: A Man Is from Amongst the People Whom He Loves and Praises

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

Shaykh Aḥmad al-Najmī (رحمه الله) stated: "Hence, if a man praises the people of the Sunnah and he loves them, then he is from them, and if he praises the people of innovation and he loves them, then he is from them.”
