Whoever does not warn against Bida is not a Da’ee! Explained by Shaykh Fawzan حفظه الله تعالى

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

هَلْ يَسْتَوِي الَّذِينَ يَعْلَمُونَ وَالَّذِينَ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ

“Are those who know equal to those who know not?” 39:9


Whoever does not warn against Bida is not a Da’ee!

Explained by Shaykh Fawzan حفظه الله تعالى

Question :

Some of the writers and callers to Islam have innovations in their Aqeedah, thus some people began to warn against this; but others hindered them from this and said: Verily this (warning against innovation) is a cause for the weakness of Islam and the weakness of the Muslims uniting against the disbelievers. Thus it is better to abandon speaking against this innovation because it does not affect the strength of the disbelievers.

Shaykh Fawzan حفظه الله تعالى :

This speech is false. The Da’ee himself must be upright, and an example. He should be a good example himself. As for him calling to Allah while he is not an example, and he has with him Bida and newly invented matters, this is not permissible. It is necessary that he is the first to comply. Allah the Exalted says : O you who believe! Why do you say that which you do not do? (Soorah As Saf 61:2) He will warn against Bida or he is not a Da’ee. if he is silent about bida and he does not warn against it, then he is not a Da’ee. And he is not going to warn against it while he is doing it. It is a must that he distance himself from it first; for the sake of Allah the Exalted. Then he calls to Allah.
