Following the Jews and Christians

Bismihi Ta'ala

Rasulullah (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said: “You will certainly follow the actions of those before you in everything (inch by inch) to the extent that if they entered the hole of a lizard, you will follow them”.

The Sahabah (Radhiyallaahu ‘anhum) asked: “O Rasul of Allah (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam), are you referring to the Jews and the Christians?”

Rasulullah (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) replied: “Then who else?”

[Sahih Bukhari]
