“Do not perform any act of worship that was not practiced by the Companions of the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.), for the earlier generation did not leave any room for the latter to add anything (to the religion). Fear Allah, O’ readers, seekers of knowledge, and follow the path of those who came before you.”
Hudhayfah ibn al-Yamaan r.a.
[Narrated by Ibn Battah in Al-Ibaanah]
