Can you please explain if the objector’s claims are correct?
There is no question that the precondition of validity in all excellent innovations is that they do not, must not and cannot contradict the Shari`a as spelled out by Imam al-Shafi`i in his famous saying. See my Sunna Notes, Volume II which illustrates how this is understood in the practice of the Salaf and Khalaf (including Ibn al-Jawzi), and save your
valuable time the nit-picking of those who were born yesterday.
