Abiding Sunnat


A'udhu billah-imin-esh-shaytan-ir-rajim Bi-s-mi-llah-ir-Rahman-ir-Rahim

Rasulullah 'sallallahu alaihi wasallam' stated, "When mischief becomes widespread among my Ummat (Muslims), a person who abides by my Sunnat [1] will acquire blessings equal to the amount deserved by a hundred martyrs." At a time when concocted tafsirs (explanations of the Qur'an al-karim) and heretical religious books written by irreligious people are on the increase, and when Muslims are misguided, people who follow the true religious books written by scholars of the right path called Ahl as-Sunnat [2] will be given the same blessings as those which would be given to a hundred martyrs. The scholars of any of the four madhhabs are called Scholars of Ahl as- Sunnat. The leader of the scholars of Ahl as- Sunnat is Imam-i-A'zam Abu Hanifa. These scholars recorded what they had heard from the As-hab-i-kiram [3], who, in their turn, had told them whatever they had heard from the Messenger of Allah.

[1] sunnat: i) act, thing that was, though not commanded by Allahu ta'ala, done and liked by the Prophet ('alaihi 's-salam) as an 'ibada (there is thawab if done, but no sin if omitted, yet it causes sin if continually omitted and disbelief if disliked; the Sunna; i) (with fard) all the sunnas as a whole; ii) (with the Book or Qur'an al-karim) the Hadith ash-sharif; iii) (alone) fiqh, Islam.
[2] Ahl as-Sunna (wa'l-Jama'a): the true pious Muslims who follow as-Sahabat al-kiram. These are called Sunni Muslims. A Sunni Muslim adapts himself to one of the four Madhhabs. These madhhabs are Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi'i and Hanbali.
