Q: What are the regulations related to the people of innovation?
A: They are categorized as either propagators or non propagators (of innovation).
As for the propagators punitive measures are taken against them as is mentioned by the imams of Islam like ostracism, as is the case with Umar when he ostracized Sabigh and others. Also from punitive measures is capital punishment (the death sentence issued by an Islamic judge or head of state) just as Al-Jad ibn Dirham, Al-Hallaj, and others from the leaders of innovation and misguidance were killed.
As for the followers for them is direction and clarity. They are called to Allah with wisdom and good admonishment.
