Good or Bad bida

Is there any concept of Bidati Hasanah in Islam?


A bida means innovation, anything which is invented and added to the pure deen of Islam, after the deen of Islam was completed on our beloved prophet Mohammad (pbuh) is called bida.

Therefore if anyone starts any new thing in the complete and pure deen of Islam for the pleasure of Allah, then no doubt he is inventing a new thing in the deen of islam, which has been completed by Allah on our beloved prophet Mohammad(pbuh) as Allah says in the Quran:

"This day I have perfected for you your religion and completed my favour upon you and have approved for you Islam as a religion." Quran(5: 3).

If one brings, invents, adds or innovates any act or deed in religion which has not been specifically endorsed by Allah and His Messenger (pbuh), then it has to be a ‘bida’ or innovation & every innovation is an error.

Jabir b. Abdullah said: When Allah's Messenger (may peace he upon him) delivered the sermon, his eyes became red, his voice rose. and his anger increased so that he was like one giving a warning against the enemy and saying:" The enemy has made a morning attack on you and in the evening too." He would also say:" The last Hour and I have been sent like these two." and he would join his forefinger and middle finger; and would further say:" The best of the speech is embodied in the Book of Allah, and the beet of the guidance is the guidance given by Muhammad. And the most evil affairs are their innovations; and every innovation is error." SAHIH MUSLIM[Book 4: Hadith 1885]

The word “every” in “every innovation is error” includes every thing, irrespective of whether you label it ‘good’ or ‘bada’ bida. So there is nothing like good or bad bida, as every bida is a misguidance & every misguidance is error & every error led to hellfire.

If any one follows/trusts/obeys the guidance of Allah & his messenger(pbuh) then he can never be misled by any one. But if he obeys the guidance of any one else then he (with no doubt) is being led astray. And Allah knows the best.
