Prophet Mohammad () was the last messenger of Allah. History shows that he was known to be truthful and trustworthy even before he received the divine inspiration and became the Messenger of Allah. His actions, decisions, relaying Allah’s Divine Revelation, method of inviting people to the straight path and implementing injunctions received from Allah, the Most Wise, are evidence of his absolute honesty, piety and spirituality.

As Muslims, our belief in Islam is not complete until we obey Allah and His Prophet (). Allah commands us to do so in the same verses in the Quran:“And obey Allah and the messenger (Mohammad ())… (Quran, Surah Al-Maeda:922)

 “And Verily. for you (Mohammad ()) are on an exalted (standard of) character” (Quran, Surah Al-Qalam:4).

Why to Follow Hadith and Sunnah?

The benefits and importance of following the sunnah are clearly outlined in this unequivocal verse of the Qur’an:

“Say, (O Muhammad, to mankind): If you (really) love Allah, follow me; Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” [Qur’an: Chapter 3, Verse 31]

If that isn’t enough to motivate us to follow our beloved Prophet’s ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) way of life, Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He) tells also us in a hadith qudsi:

“…My servant draws not near to Me with anything more loved by Me than the religious duties I have enjoined upon him. And My servant continues to draw near to Me with supererogatory works so that I shall love him. When I love him I am his hearing with which he hears, his seeing with which he sees, his hand with which he strikes and his foot with which he walks. Were he to ask [something] of Me, I would surely give it to him, and were he to ask Me for refuge, I would surely grant him it…” [Bukhari]
