Ask and You Shall Receive

I get the feeling that for many young and new Muslims, the Sunnah still remains elusive. How does one capture it? How does one digest it? How does one implement it? How? Ask, and you shall receive.

‘Abdullah Bin ‘Amru, may God be pleased with him and his father, said:

“O’ Messenger of God!, please advise me,’ to which the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said, ‘Be upright and refine your character towards people’.”

يا رسول الله, أوصني فقال صلى الله عليه وسلم, استقم وليحسن خلقك للناس

What remains hidden is not often some great secret but a lack of curiosity, a tenacity for learning, and cognizance on our parts that prevents us from benefiting from what the Messenger of God was sent to instruct us in. This means that even after his death, may God shower him with Mercy, we can still ask, and we shall still receive, صلى الله عليه وسلم.
