By Mawlana Sulayman Kindi

عَنْ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ الْخُدْرِيِّ، قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ الله صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏”‏ لَتَتَّبِعُنَّ سَنَنَ الَّذِينَ مِنْ قَبْلِكُمْ شِبْرًا بِشِبْرٍ وَذِرَاعًا بِذِرَاعٍ حَتَّى لَوْ دَخَلُوا فِي جُحْرِ ضَبٍّ لاَتَّبَعْتُمُوهُمْ ‏”‏ ‏.‏ قُلْنَا يَا رَسُولَ الله آلْيَهُودَ وَالنَّصَارَى قَالَ ‏”‏ فَمَنْ

ʾAbū Saʿīd ʾal-Khudrī (may Allāh be pleased with him) narrated:

Allāh’s Messenger ﷺ said, “You will most certainly follow theSunan(ways) of those before you, handspan by handspan, armlength by armlength until if they should enter a lizard hole you would definitely follow them.”

“O Messenger of Allāh,” we asked, “The Jews and the Christians?”

“Who else,” he replied.
