One should strive to emulate every Sunnat of Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) in one’s life. Similarly, one should endeavour to practise the Mustahab acts of Deen to the best of one’s ability. This is my advice to all my friends and associates. If one emulates the way of Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam), practising the Sunnats and Mustahab acts of Deen, one will receive the promise of Allah Ta’ala in becoming the beloved of Allah Ta’ala.
