We should be endeavouring to follow in the footsteps of the Prophet ﷺ and follow him in every aspect of our lives.
We should remember that his sunnah is not just in his worship. Sunnah is in our dealings with each other, in the softness of his words, his akhlāq, in the way he behaved with others, in the way he treated others, in the way he treated women and children, and even the way he treated his enemies. All of this is part of his sunnah. It was not just his salāh, zakāh and Hajj. His sunnah is in everything. This is what the ʿulamāʾ always try and adopt.
