Rasoolullah Sallallaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam said, “He who holds firm to my Sunnah when corruption is rampant in my Ummah will attain the reward of a hundred martyrs.” (al-Bayhaqi )
In another Hadith, Sayyiduna Anas Radhiyallaahu Anhu reports that Rasoolullah Sallallaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam advised, “Whoever cherishes my Sunnah, indeed he cherishes me and whoever loves me will be with me in Jannah.” (Tirmidhi)
As Muslims, it is our belief that every Sunnah of our beloved Nabi Sallallaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam is filled with noor (divine light) and blessings of Allah Ta’aala. It was for this very reason that Allah Ta’aala granted the Sahaabah Radhiyallaahu Anhum and Muhadditheen capabilities required to preserve the Sunnah. Alhamdulillah a large amount of authentic literature is available in which the blessed Sunnah of Rasoolullah Sallallaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam is preserved to this day for the Ummati (follower) to adopt and implement in his life.
The Sunnah of Rasoolullah Sallallaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam is not restricted to acts or places of worship only. Instead, it is comprehensive and covers all aspects and situations of life such as one’s social and moral conduct, business dealings, his dressing, etc. It also applies to all places whether the Musjid, business place, the home or even while one is on a journey to any far off land. In every situation, one should draw guidance from the lifestyle of Rasoolullah Sallallaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam thereby turning habits into acts of worship.
Let us make a firm resolution to learn the Sunnah, practise and propagate it.
