Bid’ah has always been known by most to be something negative. Anything the Prophet (ﷺ) did not do or Allah (SWT) has not instructed us to do, we must not do any of it. However, scholars have discussed in regards to differentiating between a ‘good Bid’ah’ and a ‘bad Bid’ah.'
It's best to stick with what we know to be safe and to avoid any controversies and issues. The closer we are to the original message, the closer we are to the Prophet (SAW) and his sunnah.
