Mu’aadh bin Jabal – may Allaah be pleased with him – used to say:
Ahead of you are times of trials in which there will be much wealth and in which the Qur’aan will be opened and taken (read) by believers and hypocrites, men and women, young and old and freemen and slaves. At that time it is likely that there will be people who will say, “Why aren’t the people following me when I have read the Qur’aan? They will not follow me until I invent something else.” So, beware of everything that is innovated (in religion), for those things that are innovated are misguidance.”
– Ibn Waddaah, Al-Bida’ p62; Al-Laalakaa’i, Sharh Usool I’tiqaad Ahl As-Sunnah wal-Jamaa’ah 1/125, and others.
