What is the opposite of SUNNAH?

17 December 2014, 18:27

Abuja - The opposite of sunnah is ''bidi'a'' [innovation]that is to make, as law, what Allah has not permitted to be made law, or to bring something in religion which is not among.

It is what the Holy Prophet S.A.W referred to saying ''Whosoever adds to our religion is to be rejected'' The Holy Prophet S.A.W said: '' Follow my SUNNAH and the SUNNAH of the well guided Caliphs after me.

Take firm hold of it with hands and teeth [molars]. Beware of innovations [bidi'a]for every innovation in religion is ''DHALALAH'' [an act of going astray]. The Messenger of Allah S.A.W referred to its happening saying ''My Ummah will be divided into seventy three [73] sects all of which will be thrown to hell fire except one". HE S.A.W specified this sect saying ''They are those who follow the way I and my Companions follow."

Allah cleansed the Prophet S.A.W of the people of bidi'a in the following verse: Allah the Most High said: Verily, those who divide their religion and break in to sects [all kind of religious sects] You [O Muhammad S.A.W] have no concern in them in the least. Their affair is only with Allah. [QUR'AN 6:159]
