One cannot attain the Pleasure of Allah by means of self-invented methods-Refuting Sufis

Bismillah Ar Rahmaan Ar Raheem

We See Everyday New Methods of Adhkaar done by People  which have no Proof Either in Quraan or in Sunnah of Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihi wasallam. And when we stop them saying- this has no basis in Islam, they say its Bidah Hasanah while they fail to understand that there is no Bidah Hasanah in Islam( For detail click here). All we have is that Every Bidah is a Misguidance.

Imam Nawawi Comments in His Riyad us saaliheen under this hadith as follows:

Ibn `Abbas (RadiAllahu anhu) reported:

While the Prophet Muhammed (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) was delivering Khutbah (religious talk), he noticed a man who was standing, so he asked about him and was told that he was Abu Israel who had taken a vow to remain standing and not sit, or go into the shade, or speak while observing fasting. Thereupon Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam)  said, “Tell him to speak, to go into the shade, to sit and to complete his fast”.

[Al-Bukhari].

Commentary:

1. This Hadith makes it abundantly clear that one cannot attain the Pleasure of Allah by means of self-invented methods. It can only be achieved by ways and means prescribed in the Qur’an and Sunnah.

2. One should never vow for anything which is smeared with sin or which is not permitted by Deen. An instance of this is quoted in the above mentioned Hadith.

3. The majority of ‘Ulama’ (scholars) who do not think the expiation of such vows necessary, quote this Hadith in support of their view. They argue that the Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) has not prescribed expiation in such cases as is evident from this Hadith.
