LET US TREAD THE CLEAR PATH TOGETHER



By

Ibn Abdillah As-sudaisiy Al-Iloori

Let none of us tread the path of misguidance and think it is a path of guidance, and let's not abandon the path of guidance (the way of the salaf) thinking it is a wrong path. The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم had made everything so clear for us by telling us to stick to his Sunnah and the Sunnah of his Companions رضي الله عنهم. In a statement attributed to 'Umar ibn Al-khattaab رضي الله عنه, he said:


لا عذر لأحد في ضلالة ركبها حسبها هدى، ولا في هدى تركه حسبه ضلالة، فقد بينت الأمور، وثبتت الحجة، وانقطع العذر


"There is no excuse for anyone going astray, thinking he is upon guidance, nor abandoning guidance thinking it to be misguidance. Indeed, the affairs (of the religion) has been made clear and proof established and (any form of excuse) is cut off" [See pg25 of Sharh us Sunnah]


In addition to this, 'Irbaad ibn Saariyah رضي الله الله عنه reported that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said:


"....I have left you upon clear guidance, its night is like its day, no one deviates from it after me, except that he is destroyed.." [Reported by Ahmad, Ibn Maajah, and Al-Haakim. Considered sound and authentic by Al-albaani]


May Allah make it easy for us to abide by the Sunnah and die upon it.
