Hadeeth #5 (Removing Evils & Innovations)

On the authority of the Mother of the Believers, Umm 'Abdillaah 'Aa'ishah (radhiAllahu 'anha), who said: The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu 'allayhee wassallam) said, "Whoever innovates into this affair of ours that which is not from it shall have it rejected." 1

In another narration of Muslim, "Whoever does an action that is not from this affair of ours shall have it rejected." 2

1 (Al-Bukhari #2697; Muslim # 1718; Aboo Daawood #4607; Imaam Ahmad in al-Musnad #5911: Ibn Majah #14)

2 (Muslim #1718 in the Book of Legal Rulings under the Chapter: Rejectingof False Rulings and Refuting the Innovative Matters ( Imaam an-Nawwawi); Imaam Ahmad in al-Musnad #25348)
