leave a comment »

The Aider of the Sunnah and Destroyer of Innovations, Imaam Ahmad (d.241 H) (may Allaah have mercy on him) said,

“The fundamental principles of the Sunnah with us are:

(i) Holding fast to what the Companions of Allaah’s Messenger (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) were upon.

(ii) Seeking them (and their way) as a model of guidance.

(iii) Abandoning innovation, for every innovation is misguidance.

(iv) Abandoning controversies and abandoning sitting with the People of Desires.

(v) And abandoning quarrelling, argumentation and controversies in the religion.”

[Reported by al-Laalikaa’ee in his Sharh Usoolul-I’tiqaad (1/152)].
