Completing That Which Had Been Completed?

The completeness of Islaam1 obviously means that it cannot be completed further. Believing otherwise would imply one or more of the following dangerous conclusions:
  1. That Allaah (SWT) was not truthful in declaring this completeness.
     
  2. That Allaah (SWT) has forgotten or missed some details needed to complete the Deen.
     
  3. That Muhammad saws has neglected or forgotten to convey some matters needed to complete the Deen.

      This explains why Islaam warns strongly against introducing bid`ahs into the Deen. Imaam Maalik (r) said:
"Whoever innovates in Islaam what he believes to be a good bid`ah would be claiming that Muhammad saws has betrayed the trust (of delivering the full Message)..."

     He then recited aayah 5:3 from al-Maa`idah2.
