The Sunnah

The Importance of Preserving the Sunnah

  Imam al-Awza’i {May Allah have mercy on him} said: “Patiently restrict yourself to the Sunnah and pause where the people paused, say what they said and avoid what they avoided. Take to the path of your righteous {Muslim} ancestors, for indeed, what was sufficient for them, is sufficient for you.” {al-Bayhaqi, Madhkal ilas~Sunan}
