If a person were to [carefully] ponder over the Qur.aan, then therein is [sufficiency in] what will refute every innovator’s innovation.
It is said about the people of whims and desires, that no respect nor honour is to be extended to them.
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.
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.
Whoever listens to an innovator has left the protection of Allaah and is entrusted with the innovation.
