The Noble Shaykh, Dr. Sālih Al-Fawzān (hafithahullah) was asked,

"It is narrated in a Hadeeth on the Messenger of Allah ﷺ,

Whoever innovates an innovation or shelters and supports an innovator will have upon them the curse of Allah.

This Hadeeth, is the meaning of it, that every innovator is cursed?"


Shaykh Fawzān (hafithahullah) responded by saying,

"Yes, he will be cursed according to the extent and degree of the innovation he has with him."
