They shall tell you things you never will have heard before, nor will your forebears have heard them. Save yourself from their influence and let them keep away from you lest they should mislead you into wrongdoing. Saheeh Muslim

Abu Sa’id, may Allah be pleased with him, related that the Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said: "You shall imitate your predecessor in every way; you shall follow in their footsteps step by step. It shall come to pass that if they had entered the hole of a lizard, you will do the same." Someone asked the Prophet, "O prophet of Allah, do you mean the Jews and the Christians when you said that we shall follow our predecessor ?" The Prophet replied "Yes, who else?"
