Upon every person is to follow the narrations. We should be firm upon this and not waver, even if the people oppose or abandon us. Because the Sunnah is more beloved to the Muslim than any worldly gain and praise – because within it lies salvation from the hell-fire. And bid’ah is the door toward shirk, and the cause of many to fall into the hell fire. So no matter how many people abandon and oppose you, then it is important to stick to narrations of the sahaabah, and the salaf. So that your end is the best end with Allah.
