A Clear Warning by Rasulallah Sallallahu alayhi wasalam

 

Jabir ibn Abdullah reported that:

Rasulallah Sallallahu alayhi wasalam would praise Allah in his sermon, as He deserves to be praised, and then he would say,

“Whomever Allah guides, no one can lead him astray.

Whomever Allah sends astray, no one can guide him.

The truest word is the Book of Allah and

the best guidance is the guidance of Muhammad.

The most-evil matters are those that are newly invented,

for every newly-invented matter is an innovation.

Every innovation is misguidance, and

every misguidance is in the Hellfire.

عَنْ جَابِرِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ قَالَ كَانَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَقُولُ فِي خُطْبَتِهِ يَحْمَدُ اللَّهَ وَيُثْنِي عَلَيْهِ بِمَا هُوَ أَهْلُهُ ثُمَّ يَقُولُ مَنْ يَهْدِهِ اللَّهُ فَلَا مُضِلَّ لَهُ وَمَنْ يُضْلِلْهُ فَلَا هَادِيَ لَهُ إِنَّ أَصْدَقَ الْحَدِيثِ كِتَابُ اللَّهِ وَأَحْسَنَ الْهَدْيِ هَدْيُ مُحَمَّدٍ وَشَرُّ الْأُمُورِ مُحْدَثَاتُهَا وَكُلُّ مُحْدَثَةٍ بِدْعَةٌ وَكُلُّ بِدْعَةٍ ضَلَالَةٌ وَكُلُّ ضَلَالَةٍ فِي النَّارِ
