Why Revive A Sunnah?

1. The Prophet’s way is the best way.

“Truly, in the Messenger of Allah [SAWS] you have a good example to follow for the one who hopes for the Meeting with Allah and the Last Day and remembers Allah much.” [Quran-33:21]

2. The Sunnah of the Prophet [SAWS] is THE way to get Allah’s love.

“Say: If you (really) love Allah then follow me [SAWS], Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” [Al-e-Imran:31]

3. Following the Sunnah will help us increase in good deeds.

“…Help you one another in Al-Birr and At-Taqwa (virtue, righteousness and piety); but do not help one another in sin and transgression. And fear Allah. Verily, Allah is Severe in punishment.” [AlMaidah:2]

4. The AJR! Large amounts of ajr (reward) is up for grabs!

“Whoever revives an aspect of my Sunnah that is forgotten after my death, he will have a reward equivalent to that of the people who follow him, without it detracting in the least from their reward.” [Reported by al-Tirmidhi]

5. The Revival of the Ummah can only come by following the Sunnah of the Prophet [SAWS]

The last of this Ummah will not be corrected except by which the first of this Ummah was corrected by and that is the Book and the Sunnah. [Imam Darul Hijra, Malik ibn Anas {r} d. 179]
