How to differentiate between Islamic and Non Islamic Activities

There is extremely fast developing polarization in the world in every sphere of our lives. And religions are no exception. The interpretation of religious matters and redefine these  according to one's own perceptions is on the rise. And Islam is no exception. Over a period of time many innovations and non Islamic interjections have been added to Islam, which seemingly seem convincing, yet when given a deeper thought, one finds these instead of add positivity to religious understanding lead to negativity and misunderstanding in religious understanding and followship.

This all is happening because we have forgotten the clear instructions and guidelines. The Prophet ﷺ mindful of the fact that by and by believers would interject customs and traditions of pre Islamic days and would get the religion tainted. We must remember that our culture may differ but Qur'an and sunnah remains unchanged throughout the world. For the sake of our values and culture, we cannot and should not redefine Islam.

Therefore he ﷺ stressed the believers to cling fast to Qur'an and his Sunnah so that Believers do not get astray. But we are doing exactly the opposite. Some scholars are in the forefronts to misinterpret Qur'an, sunnah and Hadiths of the Prophet ﷺ and making their own clans and fellowship. Other than many authentic hadiths, there are a large number of hadiths which have weak connectivity links, yet some scholars twist the sayings of Prophet ﷺ and mislead people.

So what should be the criterions to differentiate between Islamic and Non Islamic activities?
