Is it obligatory to follow the Sunnah?


Obeying Allaah is without doubt, obligatory. So when Allaah says: Whosoever obeys the Messenger, has indeed obeyed Allaah (Surah An-Nisa 4:80), it should be clear that one has obeyed Allaah by obeying the Messenger. Furthermore Muhammad said: whosoever disobeys me, disobeys Allaah[3]. Following the Sunnah is clearly an obligation upon every Muslim.

The obligation is stressed even more when Allaah says: But no, by your Lord, they can have no faith, until they make you (O Muhammad) judge in all disputes between them, and find in themselves no resistance against your decisions, and accept them with full submission (Sura An-Nisa 4:65) and :

It is not fitting for a believer, man or woman, when a matter has been decreed by Allaah and His Messenger to have any choice in the matter. If anyone disobeys Allaah and His Messenger he is clearly astray (Surah Al-Ahzab 33:36). As Muslims we know that when Allaah or His Messenger decree something for us, it will always benefit us, even if we do not realize it. Thus, submitting to the Messenger is only there for our benefit and not to oppress us, as some mistakenly believe.

It must also be remembered that besides being the Messenger of Allaah, Muhammad was an Arab man living in seventh century Arabia. This meant that he had his own personal tastes and preferences just like any other mortal. These preferences are clearly distinguished from the Islamic law which is binding upon everyone. Thus, his personal Sunnah is clearly distinct from the legal Sunnah which he brought. An example of this distinction is when the Prophet came to Madeenah[4] and found the inhabitants artificially pollinating the date palm trees. When he asked them why they did so, they replied that it was their habit. He suggested to them that maybe if they did not do it; it may be better. So they gave it up and the following year their crop was greatly diminished. When they told him of this he replied: I am only a human being. When I issue any command to you regarding your religion, then accept it, but when I issue any command to you based on my own opinion, I am merely a human being[5].

Islaam is a religion which singles out Allaah alone for worship. It is for this reason that the possibility of Muhammad being anything more than a man, is totally absurd. As him being the Messenger of Allaah we believe that his Sunnah is infallible, but at the same time we maintain a perfect balance by remembering the words of Allaah: Say (O Muhammad) : I am only a man like you (except that) it has been revealed to me that your God is one God (Surah Al-Kahf 18:110). True Muslims will follow Muhammad, not worship him. So


What are the benefits of the Sunnah?

One of the scholars of the past, Imam Malik[6], said: The Sunnah is like the ark of Noah. Whoever embarks upon it achieves salvation and whoever rejects it, is drowned[7].

This salvation is the admittance into Paradise and avoiding the fire of Hell. Regret is a terrible state. But regret on the Day of Judgment will be even worse for the one who did not follow the Sunnah: And remember the day when the wrongdoer will bite at his hand and say: Oh! Would that I had taken the path of the Messenger (Surah Al-Furqan 25:27). This regret will continue during the punishment: On the day the faces will be tossed about in the fire, they will say: Woe to us! Would that we had obeyed Allaah and his Messenger (Surah Az-Zukhruf 43:67).e On the other hand, the one who adhered to the Sunnah will attain the ultimate benefit: Whoever obeys Allaah and his Messenger will be admitted to gardens beneath which rivers flow to live there (forever), and that will be the great achievement (Surah An-Nisa 4:13). This is further confirmed by the Prophet himself when he said: He who obeys me enters paradise, and he who disobeys me refuses to enter paradise[8].
