رسولُ اللهِ (صَلَّيَ اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَ آلِهِ) : إيّاكَ أنْ تَسُنَّ سُنّةَ بدعةٍ ؛ فإنَّ العبدَ إذا سَنَّ سُنّةً سيّئةً لَحِقَهُ وِزْرُها ووِزْرُ مَن عَمِلَ بها.

الإمامُ عليٌّ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) : ما اُحْدِثَتْ بِدعةٌ إلّا تُرِكَ بها سُنّةٌ ، فاتّقوا البِدعَ والْزَموا المَهْيَعَ ، إنّ عَوازِمَ الاُمورِ أفضَلُها ، وإنَّ مُحْدَثاتِها شِرارُها.

No sooner is an innovation initiated than it leaves behind a common practice. So eschew innovations and adhere to the clear path. Verily the established traditions are the best, while innovated ones are the worst.
