Sometimes I wonder what Rasulullah SAW would do if he was here with us right now. I wonder how much he'll cry seeing his ummah in the midst of moral destruction. Seeing how unity seems like a strange word to us. Seeing Muslims divided by political views, all the different mazhabs, nationality and etc.
But then, even though Rasulullah SAW is gone physically, he has left his sunnah for us.
Even though Rasulullah SAW is gone, he lives through his sunnah.
We have the Quran and sunnah to guide us. In Rasulullah's last sermon, he stated:
I am leaving you with the Book of God (the Quraan) and my Sunnah (the life style and the behavioral mode of the Prophet), if you follow them you will never go astray.
In life, conflicts and such are inevitable. Everyone goes through hard times. And sometimes we question ourselves, "What should I do?". You're lost and you don't know where to go, you don't know how to help yourself.
During those moments, you should ask yourself, What did Rasulullah do when inflicted with a problem?
The answer to all our problems are in the Quran and sunnah. Don't you fret nor give up.
Rasulullah has given guidance for almost all aspects of life; how to lead a healthy life, how to cool yourself down when angry, how to carry out business in a just manner, how to be a good leader and a lot more.
Everyone can use it. The leaders can use it to create a peaceful country, the businessmen can use it to have a successful business, teachers can use it to know how to handle their students.
MashaAllah, the Quran and sunnah are a complete guidance. If you think that they're 'ketinggalan zaman' or whatevs, then you are dead wrong.
Even though we now live in an era full of new technology, the Quran and sunnah are still applicable.
So yes, Rasulullah is no longer with us physically, but we can still refer to the Quran and hadith whenever we are inflicted with a problem. He still lives with us through his sunnah.
So next time you're sad or mad or anything, just ask yourself "What did Rasulullah do?"
Please correct me if I'm wrong anywhere or you have any additional information :3
Jazakallahu khairan :)
