Unfortunately for many of us the understanding of the sunnah of the noble prophet is limited to an image sketched out in our minds in the form of clothing and physical features. For some the limitation extends further and they act upon particular sunnahs such as the manner of prayer, fasting, Hajj etc. Of course all these acts of sunnah are undisputed and are highly virtuous and many people are zealous in there observance. This talk however, elaborates on how equally, if not more important, is to adopt the sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam in ones character and to follow his example in our social, financial, family and personal interactions. Many ahadeeth are related which describe his noble character in detail, including his emotions and mental thoughts when confronted with either joyous or sorrowful news.
