Acceptability Of Worship Of One Who Innovates
Following is a hadeeth of ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib (may Allah be pleased with him), according to which the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said concerning one who introduces innovation in Madeenah: “Allah will not accept any obligatory or nafil act of worship from him.” Narrated by al-Bukhari (7300) and Muslim (1370).
People say that only acts in which innovation is introduced will not be accepted. However, the hadith says that any obligatory or nafil act of worship will be rejected. How should one understand this hadith?
