Is the basis of the Muslim Sunnah or Bid’ah?

السؤال:
هل الأصل في المسلم السنة؟

الإجابة:
الأصل في المسلم المستور السلامة حتى يظهر منه سوء، والأصل في السني حسن الظن، وأنه سني حتى ينقله عن ذلك ناقل صحيح، والأصل في المبتدع البدعة وسوء الظن، والأصل في الكافر الكفر وأنه كافر حتى يعلم إسلامه فهذه أصول واضحة يؤيدها أثر عمر رضي الله عنه أنه قال: من أظهر لنا خيرًا أمناه وقبلناه، ومن أظهر لنا غير ذلك لم نأمنه ولم نقبله، وإن قال سريرته حسنة. وغير ذلك من الأدلة على وجوب معاملة الناس بما ظهر من أحوالهم.

Shaikh Yahya Al Haajuri was asked: Is the basis of the Muslim the Sunnah?

Answer: The basis of the Muslim whose condition is hidden is good until evil comes from him, and the basis of the Sunnah is having good opinions about him, and that he is Sunni until there is something that takes him out of being Sunni. And the basis of the innovator is innovation and having bad opinions about him. And the basis of the disbeliever is disbelief until his Islam is known. For these are clear principles which is evidenced by a narration from Umar when he said: “Whomsoever shows good to us we trust him and accept him and whomsoever shows other than that we don’t trust him or accept him even if his secret life is good.” And other than that from evidences which shows that one operates with the people with what is apparant of their condition.
