[11] Advice for the seekers of knowledge–beware of [التنَطُّع]; [التعمُّق] and [ بدع ]

Abdullaah Ibn Mas’ood (radiyallaahu-anhu) said:

Acquire knowledge before it is taken away and it being taken away is the departure of its people (i.e. the death of the scholars). Indeed, beware of [التنَطُّع  (i.e. going beyond what Allaah has legislated with regards to one’s practice of the religion); التعمُّق (i.e. looking too deeply into affairs in a manner that leads a person to overstep the boundaries of the legislation) and  بدع  (innovation in religion). And upon you is (to hold onto the) ancient affair (i.e. the way of the Salaf).
