Not every statement of innovation makes one an innovator!!! -Shaykh Muhammad bin Sa’eed Raslaan

In the name of Allah the Most Gracious the Most Merciful

Not every statement of innovation makes one an innovator!!!

By Shaykh Muhammad ibn Sa’eed Raslaan may Allah preserve him

The shaykh mentions this point in his book “Dawaabit at-Tabdee'” under the 18th chapter, “Muraa’atu al-Khata’i alladhi Ya’tari al-Bashar”. He says,

If a knowledgeable person is diligent in searching for the truth from the Book and Sunnah, makes every effort in seeking it, but makes a mistake in some issues of aqeedah, then he is not deemed to be an innovator and abandoned because of his mistake or mistakes. And if it is said that his statement was a statement of innovation then it does not mean that he is an innovator. Just as (if someone) made a statement of disbelief; it does not necessitate that he becomes a disbeliever. Likewise, if someone makes a statement of innovation then it does not necessitate that he becomes an innovator.

Making specific takfeer (calling someone a disbeliever) requires fulfilling conditions and mawaani’ and the same goes for making tabdee’ (calling someone an innovator); it also needs to fulfill conditions and mawaani’.
