Courage is not the absence of fear, courage is doing what is right despite the existence of fear.

Sunnah: Practices of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw)

Sunnah, literally means path. The Sunnah, in Islam, is the path which has been laid down by the character, manners, ritual habits, deeds, example and legislative actions of our beloved Prophet (saw).

The Sunnah of our Holy Prophet (saw) sets a perfect example for anyone who wishes to draw close to Allah (swt)

"Undoubtedly, you have the best in the following of the Messenger, for him who yearns for Allah" Quran (Surah 33: Verse 21)

It is for this very reason that all legitimate paths towards Allah (swt), embody the Sunnah of our beloved Prophet (saw). Because by following the Sunnah one eventually becomes a loved friend of Allah (swt).

"Say, If you love Allah, follow me, Allah will love you" Quran (Surah 3: Verse31)

We have outlined some of the most important and beloved Sunnats of our Prophet (saw), on this site, to present Muslims with the necessary information to help them establish the Sunnah with due care and attention.

It may initially be difficult to adopt the Sunnah, for fear of being ridiculed, but this is precisely why one will be greatly rewarded by Allah (swt). It has been narrated that our Holy Prophet (saw) said:

"At the time of corruption, if one revives the Sunnah, one will be rewarded to the equivalent of one hundred martyrs in Islam" (Baihiqi &Targhib)

1. Ghusl / Bath

5. Imamah Sharif
