Innovation, Innovation

This is the event from those days when the extension of the Prophetic Mosque had not taken place, it was only beginning. There were some people who were kissing the metallic lattice work (jaali). The guard discouraged them by shouting innovation-innovation (bid'at-bid'at). These people shouted back, "What innovation? We have come from so far and you are not allowing us to do this?" It was asked where they came from. India. Where from in India? UP. Where from in UP? Sultanpur. It was explained to them (by Hazrat Shaikh (DB)) softly that after coming here it is better to recite Darood. And it is not a good thing to do peeping inside the lattice work.
