Observing the Sunnah and the manners of its obedience
Allah, the Exalted, says:
"And whatsoever the Messenger (Muhammad (PBUH)) gives you, take it; and whatsoever he forbids you,
abstain (from it)".
"Nor does he speak of (his own) desire. It is only a Revelation that is revealed.''
"Say (O Muhammad (PBUH) to mankind): `If you (really) love Allah then follow me (i.e., accept Islamic
Monotheism, follow the Qur'an and the Sunnah), Allah will love you and forgive you of your sins".
"Indeed in the Messenger of Allah (Muhammad (PBUH)) you have a good example to follow for him who
hopes for (the Meeting with) Allah and the Last Day...''
"But no, by your Rubb, they can have no Faith, until they make you (O Muhammad (PBUH)) judge in all
disputes between them, and find in themselves no resistance against your decisions, and accept (them) with
full submission".
"(And) if you differ in anything amongst yourselves, refer it to Allah and His Messenger (PBUH)".
"He who obeys the Messenger (Muhammad (PBUH)), has indeed obeyed Allah.''
"And verily, you (O Muhammad (PBUH)) are indeed guiding (mankind) to the Straight Path (i.e., Allah's
Deen of Islamic Monotheism):.
"And let those who oppose the Messenger's (Muhammad (PBUH)) commandment (i.e., his Sunnah -- legal
ways, orders, acts of worship, statements) (among the sects), beware, lest some Fitnah (disbelief, trials,
afflictions, earthquakes, killing, overpowered by a tyrant) should befall them or a painful torment be inflicted
on them.''
"And remember (O you the members of the Prophet's family, the Graces of your Rubb), that which is recited
in your houses of the Verses of Allah and Al-Hikmah (i.e., Prophet's Sunnah -- legal ways, so give your thanks
to Allah and glorify His Praises for this Qur'an and the Sunnah).''

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said,
"Do not ask me
unnecessarily about the details of the things which I do not mention to you. Verily, the people before you were
doomed because they were used to putting many questions to their Prophets and had differences about their
Prophets. Refrain from what I forbid you and do what I command you to the best of your ability and capacity".
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim]
To be unnecessarily inquisitive and create differences and confusion in the Injunctions of Allah and
His Prophet (PBUH) leads to destruction. The safest course lies only in following the Orders of Allah and His
Prophet (PBUH) without `ifs' and `buts.' Hairsplitting in religious issues falls in this category. It opens the door for
chaos and conflict and paves the way for disunity and separation. May Allah give sense to the Muslim Ummah to
abandon this road and take the Right Path which ensures peace and security. Let it be absolutely clear that the Right
Path is one and one alone. There cannot be multiple right paths, it is one and singular. Once a community leaves the
Straight Path, it is sure to go astray.

`Irbad bin Sariyah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: One day Messenger of Allah (PBUH) delivered
us a very eloquent Khutbah on account of which eyes shed tears and hearts were full of tears. A man said: "O
Prophet of Allah, this is as if it were a parting advice. So advise us". He (PBUH) said,
"I admonish you to fear
