Beware of Ahlul Bidah [The People of Religious Innovations]- Soofi Figureheads and Other Deviants! They Transmit Narrations Via WhatsApp and Ask Common People to Circulate Them

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

The Prophet [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] said: It is enough sin for a person to speak of everything that he hears.” [Ref 1]

Abu Haatim [Imaam Ibn Hibbaan (rahimahullaah)] said: This narration contains a rebuke – that a person should not speak about [or narrate] everything he hears until he knows whether it is authentic or not, then he speaks about [or narrates] it. And he should not speak about [or narrate] that which is not authentic. [Ref 2]

The Prophet [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] said:

I command you fear Allaah [The Mighty and Majestic] and to listen to and obey your [leaders] even if a maimed [or disabled] Abyssinian slave is put in charge over you. Whoever lives among you will see a lot of differences, so it is obligated on you to adhere to my Sunnah and the Sunnah of the rightly guided Khulafaa- bite onto it with your molar teeth [i.e. adhere firmly to it]. And beware of newly invented matters [in the religion], for every newly invented matter [in the religion] is an innovation [in religion] and every innovation [in the religion] is misguidance. [Ref 3]

Abu Haatim [Imaam Ibn Hibbaan (rahimahullaah)] said regarding the statement of the Prophet [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam]: ‘’Whoever lives among you will see a lot of differences, so it is obligated on you to adhere to my Sunnah…’’

This is a sound proof [that shows that] the Prophet [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam] commanded his Ummah to know [and distinguish] the weak narrators from the reliable narrators- because it not possible for a person to adhere to the Sunnah if it is mixed with lies and falsehood, except when one can distinguish the weak narrators from the reliable narrators. [Ref 4]
