Some Differences Between Ahlus-Sunnah (The People of Sunnah) & Ahlul-Bid’ah (The People of Innovation) – Al-‘Allaamah Rabee bin Haadee Al-Madkhali


من الفروق بين أهل السنة وأهل البدعة

قال العلامة ربيع بن هادي المدخلي حفظه الله:

فأهل البدعة إذا سمعوا نصاً إما أن يردوه علانية هكذا ويدفعوه، وإما أن يتحايلوا عليه فيتأولونه، أما أهل السنة فبعكس ذلك وبخلاف ذلك؛ فإنهم يقبلون هذا النص ويسلِّمون به ويعتقدون ما دل عليه، بخلاف أهل البدع!!
فلا تأويل عند أهل السنة ولا رد لما جاء به الرسول عليه الصلاة والسلام بل يؤمنون به ويسلمون به تسليما دون أي حرج، فهذا منهج أهل السنة والجماعة وذاك مذهب أهل البدع والضلال.

Al Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadee Al makhdali- Allah preserve him said:

So the people of bid’ah (innovators: those that invent new matters into the religion), when they hear a text (I.e an ayah from the Quran or an authentic hadeeth). It is either they reject it openly like that and refuse it or they are deceptive regarding it so they falsely interpret it ( in opposition to its true meaning). And as for the people of Sunnah, then it is contrary to that (way of the innovators) and different to that. For verily they accept the text and submit to it and they have faith in what it indicates contrary to the innovators. So there is no Taweel ( false interpretation ) with the people of Sunnah and no rejection of what The Messenger-peace and blessings of Allah be upon him- came with. Rather, they have faith in it and they submit to it in totality without any resistance. So this is the path of Ahlu Sunnah wal jama’ah (The people of sunnah). And the other methodology (falsely interpreting text from the Quran and Sunnah) is that of the innovators.
