Scorpions Burying Their Heads And Bodies In The Sand And Leaving Their Tails Out!


In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.

Imaam Al-Barbahaari [rahimahullaah] said, “The likeness of the people of innovation is that of scorpions burying their heads and bodies in the sand and leaving their tails out; so when they are able they sting.  Likewise, the people of innovation hide themselves within the people and when they are able, they convey what they desire”. [Tabaqaat al-Hanaabilah: 2/44]

What Should We Do When The Evil Desires of Ahlul Bidah Increase?

Shaikh Rabee [may Allaah preserve him] said, “It is obligated on the people of truth to exercise patience and increase in adhering to this religion of truth. Whenever the desires become abundant, it becomes necessary to increase in acquainting (oneself) with the truth and adhering to it, as the Messenger (alayhis salaatu was-salaam) said: ‘The one who lives long amongst you will see a lot of differences, so upon you is that you follow my Sunnah and the Sunnah of the rightly guided khulafaa. Bite onto it with your molar teeth (i.e. hold onto it firmly) and beware of newly invented matters (in the religion), for every newly invented matter (in the religion) is a bidah and every bidah is misguidance.’” [Majmoo 14/294 (3rd paragraph)]
