Islaam is the Sunnah, and the Sunnah is Islaam – Shaykh Rabee’ bin Haadee al Madkhalee
Islaam is the Sunnah, and the Sunnah is Islaam
The author (Imaam al-Barabahaaree) may Allah have Mercy on him stated:
“Know that Islaam is the Sunnah and the Sunnah is Islaam and neither of them can be established without the other.”
Explanation (Shaykh Rabee’ bin Hadee al-Madkhalee, may Allah preserve him):
“So he (Imaam al-Barbahaaree), may Allah have Mercy on him, calls our attention to the Sunnah’s position, for verily Islaam is the call of all of the Anbiyyah (the Prophets). The Most High says:
‘Truly the Religion with Allah is al-Islaam’ [Surat ‘Ali Imraan: Ayah 19]
And the Most High says:
‘And whoever seeks a religion other than Islaam, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers.’ [Surat ‘Ali Imraan: Ayah 85]
And also the Sunnah is the path of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم), his methodology (manhaj) and his morals. So he who does not carry out this Sunnah, then he is a misguided innovator who did not carry out the religion of Islaam. And many from those who intentionally do these violations are disbelievers and hypocrites, we seek refuge with Allah from all of that.”
-From the Explanation of ‘Sharhu Sunnah’ by Imaam al-Barbahaaree, explained by Shaykh Rabee’ bin Hadee al-Madkhalee, may Allah preserve him upon goodness.
