Sharhus-Sunnah – Imaam al-Barbahaaree

Imaam al-Barbahaaree (rahima-hullaah) mentions:

The innovators are like scorpions.

They bury their heads and bodies in the sand and leave their tails out.

When they get the chance they sting; the same with the innovators who conceal themselves amongst the people, when they are able, they do what they desire.
