It has been narrated in the two ‘Saheeh’ collections of al-Bukhaaree and Muslim that the Prophet, may Allah’s praise and His salutations be upon him, said,"
The one whom Allah intends good for He gives him understanding of his religion".
As Muslims, each of us wants to have a good understanding so that we can properly practice Islaam, as best as we are able. However, one challenge is the presence of different voices, claims, and calls, all with different ideas, practices, and opposing priorities, yet all saying [This is Islam!] One of the scholars of the early centuries, who stood firm upon the guidance of the Sunnah was Imam as-Sizjee. He advised us that,"It is upon every Muslim who wants to be saved from misguidance, that they do not turn and rely upon each and every individual, nor depend and trust every book available, and that they do not give controlling influence over his affairs except for the one who clearly stands upon guidance. Speaking about how we can learn to test the correctness of the person who makes claims that something is truly part of this religion, he, may Allah have mercy upon him said,"
The one who seek safety and deliverance from the harm of these people, and to be protected from following deceptive desires as a Muslim, then his scale and measure must be the Book of Allah, and the transmitted reports of the Sunnah, applied to every single matter he hears about or sees. If he has knowledge of these two sources they he must weigh matters against the guidance of both of them, and how it was followed by the first three generations. He should not accept from anyone, any statement, without first requesting from that person the support which clearly establishes its soundness and correctness in Islam, in the form of a clear verse of the Qur'an, or a narration of a verified matter from the Sunnah, or to the statement of one of the Companions authentically transmitted.
