from the Sunnah
Here, in relevance with this topic, we wish to mention as to how Satan removes man from the Holy Prophet's methods and his auspicious Sunnahs, and what stratagems he uses for them. Since a man, by following the Holy Prophet and thus covering the path of Paradise, can enjoy the Holy Prophet's Company in Paradise.
Satan knows it for certain that he has to go to Hell but “since I have deserved Hell - Allah forbid - because of Adam, I will take a large number of Adam's progeny also to Hell with myself.” Hence, deflecting people from following and conforming to the Holy Prophet he calls them towards himself to follow him, and in place of the auspicious and holy prophetic ways and methods offers his own methods and ways, which, in the technical language of the Shari' ah are called "innovation" ("bidah"). Lexically, bid'ah means any new thing but in the language of the Shari'ah that new thing is called bid'ah of which there may be no basis in religion and yet may be ascribed to religion.
