Upholding the Sunnah

Imam Sa’id ibn al-Musayyib {May Allah have mercy upon him} once saw a man praying more than two rak’ah after the beginning of Fajr, he was making many bows and prostrations, and so he forbade him from doing that.

The man {May Allah have mercy upon him} said,

“O Abu Muhammad, is Allah going to punish me for praying?” Imam Sa’id ibn al-Musayyib said, “No, but He will punish you for contradicting the Sunnah.”
