Meaning of Sunnah in Islam
The first important thing about “why are cats sunnah?” what I will explain now is the meaning of sunnah in Islam. I want you to understand that first before you read more explanations in this article because that is one of the basic things in this discussion that must be well understood.
“Sunnah” is an Arabic word. The writing is السُنَّةُ. We can find an explanation of the literal meaning of sunnah in the sentences below:
السُنَّةُ لُغَةً هِيَ الطَّرِيْقُ أَوْ الْمَسْلَكُ أَوْ الْمَنْهَجُ
Sunnah in Arabic is ath-Thariq, al-Maslak, or al-Manhaj.
We can understand the words ath-Thariq, al-Maslak, al-Manhaj as a way, a method, and a way.
The meaning of sunnah in Islam is as follows:
السُنَّةُ اِصْطِلَاحًا هِيَ مَا نُسِبَ إِلَى النَّبِيِّ مُحَمَّدٍ عَلَيْهِ الصَّلَاةُ وَالسَّلَامُ مِنْ أَقْوَالٍ وَأَفْعَالٍ وَتَقَارِيْرَ أَوْ صِفَاتٍ خَلْقِيَّةٍ أَوْ خُلُقِيَّةٍ
Sunnah in sharia terms is something that is attributed to the Prophet Muhammad alaihi ash-Shalatu wa as-Salam, such as sayings, deeds, statutes, creative traits or ethics.
Another meaning of sunnah in Islam is as follows:
كُلُّ مَا نُقِلَ عَنْ رَسُوْلِ اللهِ – صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ – مِنْ أَقْوَالٍ وَأَفْعَالٍ وَتَقْرِيْرٍ ، وَصِفَاتٍ خَلْقِيَّةٍ وَخُلُقِيَّةٍ، سَوَاءً أَكَانَ ذَلِكَ قَبْلَ الْبِعْثَةِ أَمْ بَعْدَهَا
Everything that is narrated from the Messenger of Allah (Prophet Muhammad) sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, such as sayings, deeds, decisions, attributes of creation and ethics, either before he was sent as a Prophet and Messenger or after that.
You can find an explanation of sunnah in the hadith below:
مَنْ سَنَّ فِي الْإِسْلَامِ سُنَّةً حَسَنَةً فَلَهُ أَجْرُهَا وَأَجْرُ مَنْ عَمِلَ بِهَا بَعْدَهُ مِنْ غَيْرِ أَنْ يَنْقُصَ مِنْ أُجُورِهِمْ شَيْءٌ وَمَنْ سَنَّ فِي الْإِسْلَامِ سُنَّةً سَيِّئَةً كَانَ عَلَيْهِ وِزْرُهَا وَوِزْرُ مَنْ عَمِلَ بِهَا مِنْ بَعْدِهِ مِنْ غَيْرِ أَنْ يَنْقُصَ مِنْ أَوْزَارِهِمْ شَيْءٌ
Whoever sets an example of good habits in Islam, then he will get his reward and the reward of those who imitate it, without reducing their reward in the slightest. And whoever sets an example of a bad habit, then he will get his sin, and the sin of those who follow him without reducing their sin in the slightest.
That is a brief explanation of the meaning of sunnah in Islam. As Muslims, we must understand that.
