Abu Darda on Bid’ah: Anger at seeing innovations in the religion

Umm Darda reported: Abu Darda, may Allah be pleased with him, entered upon me while he was furious. I said, “Why are you angry?” Abu Darda said, “By Allah, I do not recognize any of the affairs of Muhammad among them except that they pray in congregation.”

عَنْ أُمِّ الدَّرْدَاءِ قَالَتْ دَخَلَ عَلَيَّ أَبُو الدَّرْدَاءِ رضي الله عنه وَهُوَ غَضْبَانُ فَقُلْتُ لَهُ مَا أَغْضَبَكَ فَقَالَ وَاللَّهِ مَا أَعْرِفُ فِيهِمْ مِنْ أَمْرِ مُحَمَّدٍ شَيْئًا إِلَّا أَنَّهُمْ يُصَلُّونَ جَمِيعًا
