Pearl of Wisdom
when asked to explain the terms: sunnah [Prophetic practice], innovation, congregation and division, said, 'By Allah, the sunnah is the tradition of Muhammad (SAWA); innovation is anything that deviates from it; the congregation is the gathering of people who are with the truth, even if they are few in number; and division is the dissention of people who are with falsehood, even if they be many in number.'
Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib [as]
