The Ruined

Ibn Mas’ud (radi Allahu anhu) reported that the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “Ruined are those who insist on hardship in matters of the Faith.” He repeated this three times.

[Sahih Muslim]

Commentary:

This Hadith shows disgust against exercises which many Sufis have introduced in religion which deviate from the conduct of the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) and encourage self-violence.

Similarly, such people who are hypocritical and make unnecessary probe into religious matters also fall in this category and are usually far from the teachings and practice of the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam).

And Allah Knows Best!
