Stick To The Sunnah and Connect With Allah.

Recommended Posts

As-Salaam alaikum,

The Sunnah is//refers to the Commands, prohibitions, sayings, actions and tacit approvals of the Noble Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam.  Allah Ta'ala, says in the Holy Qur'an, in clarifying the nature of the Beloved Prophet's behaviour:--

                ''Your companion does not err, nor does he go astray, nor does he speak out of

                    desire- it is naught but Revelation that is revealed.'' (Surah Najm 53:2-4)  and


                ''Certainly you have in the Messenger of Allah an excellent example for the one

                   who hopes in Allah and the Last Day and remembers Allah much.''  (Surah Ahzab 33:21)


Thus we, Muslims, should model ourselves upon this perfect exemplar, imitating him as much as we can, both in his character and his mode of action. And since the Prophet is ''CLOSER TO THE BELIEVERS THAN THEIR [OWN] SELVES'' (33:6), it can be said that he is indeed the believer's alter ego.

Sayyadi Abu Hamid al-Ghazzali (d. 1111), may Allah be Merciful to him, wrote of the true Muslim as one who ''imitates the Messenger of Allah in his goings out and his comings in, his movements and his times of rest, the manner of his eating, his deportment, his sleep and his speech. So a man should sit while putting on his trousers and stand while putting on his turban, start with the right foot when putting on his shoes and, when cutting his nails, begin with the forefinger of the right hand...''

Indee, the Sunnah of the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, provides not only a framework but also, as it were, a network of channels into which the believer's will enters and through which it flows smoothly... both guided and guarded. The Sunnah is the application of the Qur'anic blueprint to align oneself with Divine Order... Stick to it in all you do. it is the practical confirmation of proclamations of loving Allah:

                   ''Say: If you love Allah, then follow me. Allah will love you and forgive your sins, and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful'' (3:31)


Rejecting the Sunnah is a rejection of Allah, majestic is His Majesty:

             ''Say: Obey Allah and the Messenger, but if they turn back, then surely Allah does not love the unbelievers.'' (3:32)

Indeed, it is in acceptance and obedience of the Beloved Messenger, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, that one can hope to find salvation:

         ''And obey Allah and the Messenger, that you may be shown Mercy.''  (3:132).
