Sunnah is the method of the last Prophet Muhammad. As Muslims, we were not only ordered to follow the teachings of the Qur’an, but also the Prophet. We were asked to follow everything the Prophet said or accepted. Ammar once told Ayesha: “Oh mother of believers, tell me about the role of the prophet, peace be upon him.” Ayesha said: “Have you not read the Koran?” The character of Race Messenger is the Koran.

If we also want the Koran to be our character, we must follow the Prophet (sa). Today it can be a challenge, but we must strive to follow the example of the Prophet, because this will surely lead us to Jannah, that’s what we are here to win in this world.
Here are 5 ways to help you follow the Sunnah!
1- Make sure you are following authentic information.
One of the main problems of today’s ummah is the flood of unauthenticated information. We have started relying so much on online learning that we do not stop to check that the information we read is correct or not.
As Muslims, it is essential to ensure that we do not attribute anything that the Prophet did not say, as he said: “Lying about me is not like telling lies about others. Those who deliberately lie about me should take their place in hell.” al-Bukhaari, 1229.
Although one can follow a false hadith or tell others involuntarily, we must be responsible Muslims and always review our sources.
One of the best online resources to find authentic Ahadeth is www.sunnah.com. You can check what you have heard or learned here to make sure nothing bad has happened. Alternatively, you can learn from teachers and academics. At www.qutor.com you can search for Koran hours for children and adults.
2- “We hear and we obey”
Do not choose your Sunnah. If you hear something that the Prophet (sa) did and confirmed to be true, follow him immediately. Do not let your Naf (ego) stop you and do not let Shaytan or other people stop you.
The Messenger believed in what had been revealed to him by his Lord and also by the faithful. Everyone believed in Allah, His angels, His books, and His messengers, saying, “We make no distinction between His messengers.” And they say, “Let us listen and obey. [Let us seek] Your forgiveness, our Lord, and for you it is the [ultimate] goal.” (2: 285.)
3- Make good friends
A human being is known for his friends. Meet people who love the Prophet (sa) as much as you. Having this support and the associated memories is a great treasure for all Muslims. The Prophet (sa) said, “Man depends on his friend’s religion, so each of you asks who a friend is.” (Tirmidhi, reliable)
