Cursing People Of Bid'ah

Sheikh Al-Kulayni:

Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Muhammad ibn Al-Hussain from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Aboo Nasr from Dawood ibn Sarhan from Imam Ja'far Al-Sadiq (a.s), who has said the following: "The Messenger of Allah (saw) has said, 'When you after me find people of Bid'ah (innovation) and skepticism, express your disapproval of them. Do Bara'ah (disassociation) from them and increase in your insults (sabihim) to them, and bring evidence against them so they may not become greedy to bring destruction to Al-Islam. You must warn people against them and against learning their heretic ideas. Allah (swt) will reward you for this and will raise your position in the next life.'"
