Bid'ah

Imām ibn al-Qayyim (d.751H) رحمه الله mentioned, 

“It is known that the sinner only harms himself, as for the innovator (one who introduces new matters into the religion), then he harms many and his tribulation and harm is in the foundations of (a person’s) religion, whereas the tribulation of the sinner is in regards to his desires. As for the innovator, he lies in wait in order to block the people from the straight path, however the sinner is not like that. The innovator rejects the attributes of the Lord and His perfection and the sinner is not like that. The innovator contradicts what the Messenger came with and the sinner is not like that. The innovator cuts off the path to the Hereafter (Paradise) from the people and the sinner (only) delays his journey to (Paradise) due to his sins.”

Imām ibn al-Qayyim (رحمه الله) stated,”The person who clings to the Sunnah has a living and illuminated heart, and the person of innovation has a dead and darkened heart.”

[[Ijtim’aa al-Juyush al-Islāmīyyah ‘alā harb Mu’attilah wal-Jahmīyah pg.11, Dār ‘Aalam al-Fawāid print, 2nd edition]

Imām ibn al-Qayyim (رحمه الله) stated,

“Indeed, the Sunnah (of Allāh’s Messenger ﷺ) is the fortified fortress of Allāh, which cannot be penetrated, and the one who enters it, will be from those who are safeguarded (from deviation).”

[Ijtim’aa al-Juyush al-Islāmīyyah ‘alā harb Mu’attilah wal-Jahmīyah pg.10, Dār ‘Aalam al-Fawāid print, 2nd edition]

Shaykh Sālih Ibn Fawzān al-Fawzān (حفظه الله) said,

“Indeed the Salafi Jamā’ah (group) is the one that is upon the truth and it is the one which it is an obligation to adhere to, work with and ascribe oneself to and all other groups besides it must not be considered from the groups of d’awah (call to Islām).” 

[Al-Ijābaat al-Muhimmah, pg.55] 

Imām ‘Abdur Rahmān As-S’adee (رحمه الله) mentioned,

“Whenever the (Muslims) establish eemaan (faith) and righteous deeds, they will undoubtedly find what Allāh has promised them (of safety and security in the lands). And He only empowers the disbelievers and hypocrites over them, and sometimes enables them to triumph due to the shortcomings of the Muslims in eemaan and righteous deeds.”

[Tayseer al-Kareem ar-Rahmān fee tafseer kalām al-Mannān pg.800, Surah an-Noor, verse 55, Dār al-Maiman print, 2nd edition]

 

Abdullāh ibn Muslim al-Marwazī narrates,

“I used to sit with Ibn Sīreen (in his circles of knowledge), and later abandoned doing so, and began to sit with the ‘Ibādeeyah (a deviated sect from the Khawārij). I then saw in a dream that I was with a people who were carrying the funeral of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم). I went to Ibn Sīreen and informed him (of the dream). He said,

“What is the matter with you, you sit with a people who wish to bury what the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) came with!””
