They Make No Differentiation Between What Ahlus Sunnah Say and What Ahlul Bidah Say- Ibn Taymiyyah

Ibn Taymiyyah said:There are a people who know not Ahlus Sunnah’s creed as it should be; or they know some & are ignorant of some of it. They conceal what they know & do not clarify it for the people. They neither forbid innovations nor rebuke Ahlul Bidah. They would reject a statement in the Sunnah & make no differentiation between what Ahlus Sunnah say and what Ahlul Bidah say.
This path has overwhelmed many of the Murji’ah, the ascetics & philosophers, just as it has overwhelmed many people of desires & rhetoric.

Our Salaf: Hafs Bin Humaid asked Ibnul Mubaarak about the deviant sects

Hafs Bin Humaid (rahimahullaah) said: I said to Abdullaah Ibnul Mubaarak (rahimahullaah), “How many sects has this Ummah spilt into?” So he said, “The foundation of the sects are four: The shia, the hurooriyyah (i.e. khawaarij), the qadariyyah and the murji’ah. The shia (further) split into twenty-two sects; the hurooriyyah (further) split into twenty-one sects; the qadariyyah (further) split into sixteen sects and the murji’ah (further) split into thirteen sects.
