That which Separates…

الحمد لله رب العالمين وصلى الله وسلم على رسول الله وعلى آله وأصحابه ومن اهتدى بهديه إلى يوم الدين أما بعد

I Dislike Fitnah Upon You

.

That which separates the people of truth and the people of falsehood is the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم

Al Haakim said: I heard ar-Rabee’ say: I heard (Imam) ash-Shaafi’i, and indeed he was narrating a hadeeth. So a man said to him: Will you implement this O’ Abaa Abdullaah? So he replied: “If I narrate an authentic hadeeth from the Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم and I don’t implement it, then you can testify that my intellect has left!”

[Reported by Ibn Abi Haatim in ‘Adaab ash-Shaafi’ee wa Munaaqibuhu’, p. 93; and by Imaam adh-Dhahabi in ‘Mukhtasir al-Uloow’, no. 197 – Authenticated in ‘Sifatus Salaah’ (fifth edition, p. 33)]

.

A man came to Imaam Maalik رحمه الله تعالى and asked: “From where should I put on the ihraam? So he said: From the place where the Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم stopped and put on ihraam. So the man said: So what if I put on ihraam from farther than that? So Maalik said: I do not advise that. So he said: What do you dislike about that? He said: I dislike the Fitnah upon you. He said: And what is the Fitnah (when I am) increasing the good? So he said: Verily, Allaah the Exalted says:

“And let those who oppose the Messenger’s commandment (i.e. his Sunnah) beware, lest some Fitnah befall them or a painful torment be inflicted on them.” [An-Noor, 63]

And which Fitnah is greater than you specifying an action with virtue which was not specified by the Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم?

[Related Abu Shaamah in his book ‘Baa’ith ‘ala Inkaarul Bid’ah wal-Hawaadith’; quoted by Abi Bakr Al Khallaal]

May Allaah make us amongst those who stay within the limits of the Sunnah!
