In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.
We have a bone to pick with pseudo intellectuals and their path to rectification in Islam through other than the path of the Salafus Saalih [The Pious Predecessors]
Imaam Maalik [may Allaah have mercy upon him] said, “The latter part of this Ummah [i.e. those who will come after the first three generations of Islam] will not be rectified except by way of that which rectified its earlier part. Whoever innovates a bidah in Islam and considers it to be something good, then indeed he has claimed that Muhammad betrayed the Risaalah [i.e. the message he was entrusted with] because Allaah said: ٱلۡيَوۡمَ أَكۡمَلۡتُ لَكُمۡ دِينَكُمۡ – This day, I have perfected your religion for you]. Therefore, what was not part of the religion at that time (i.e. during the time of the Messenger) cannot be part of the religion today (i.e. after his departure from this world)”. [Al-Itisaam of Imaam Shaatibee 1/28]
