To proceed: Verily, the most truthful speech is the Speech of Allah and the best guidance is the guidance of Muhammad 'alayi was salaat was salaam. The worst of affairs are the newly invented matters. Every newly invented matter is an innovation, every innovation is misguidance, and all misguidance is in the Hellfire.
