الدعوة السلفيه عقيدة ومنهج علي فهم السلف الصالح

Moderation in Sunnah is better than Striving in Bid’ah

leave a comment »

The practice of the salaf with regard to matters of Sunnah and bid’ah was always to err on the side of caution and to adhere to the narrated Sunnah for fear of falling into bid’ah (innovations in the religion).

Ibn Mas’ood (may Allaah be pleased with him) said:

{{ اقْتِصَادٌ فِي سَنَةٍ خَيْرٌ مِنِ اجْتِهَادٍ فِي بِدْعَةٍ }}

“Moderation in applying Sunnah is better than striving hard in following bid’ah.”

[Source: Recorded by at-Tabaraani in al-Mu’jam al-Kabeer (10/208), al-Laalikaee in Sharh al-‘Usool al-‘Itiqaad (no. 115) and also by way of Abu ad-Darda in (no. 116), ad-Daarimee 1/72, al-Bayhaqi recorded it in Sunan al-Kubra 3/19,

Shaykh al-Albani (rahimahullaah) said that this Athar (narration/report) is Saheeh (Authentic). Recorded in Salaat at-Taraweeh, page 6]
