Humiliation For the Innovator
January 10, 2014 § 1 Comment
Sufyaan bin ‘Uyaynah rahimahullaah said: “There is not in the world a person of innovation except that he finds humiliation covering him. He said: It is in the Book of Allaah.
They said: And where is it in the Book of Allaah?
He said: Have you heard of the Speech of Allaah, the Exalted: “Indeed, those who took the calf [for worship] will obtain anger from their Lord and humiliation in the life of this world…” [Soorah Al-A’raaf (7): 152]
They said: Yaa Abaa Muhammad, that is specific to those who worshiped the calf.
He said: No, recite what comes after it: “..And thus do We recompense the inventors [of falsehood].” [Soorah Al-A’raaf (7): 152] So this is for every inventor of falsehood, and innovator until the Day of Resurrection.”
