When it is told to them, “Come towards what Allah has revealed and towards the messenger” they say, “What we found our forefathers practicing is sufficient for us.” (Will they follow their forefathers) even though their forefathers never understood anything,nor were they rightly guided? (Surah Al-Maidah: 104)
                   
During the period of ignorance, people invented their own beliefs that had no relation to Allah. When asked asked why they practiced as they did, they argued that they were following their forefathers and did not required any other guidance.
They refused to follow Allah’s messenger and ignorantly claimed, “What are found our forefathers practicing is sufficient for us.” Allah replies to their ignorance by saying, “(Will they follow their forefathers) even though their forefathers never understood anything, nor were they rightly guided?” This makes it clear that if their forefathers were rightly guided, then only should they be followed.
