  1. Masha’Allah tabarak’Allah (Allah has Willed it, with the blessings of Allah)

    This was a very helpful article… perfect timing I’m going to be starting university in a few weeks Insha’Allah, & this is just what I needed to get out of a bad sleeping routine which I currently have! May Allah reward you with goodness!

  2. Assalamualaikum! ma sha Allah! Simple yet beautiful!! May Allah swt help us to make Sunnah our way of life and develop the lov of Rasoolullah saw.

  3. Jazakalahu hairan Aisha May Allah Almighty richly bless you and give you more knowledge yo feed us.I have been practicing some of this sunnah but not all of it. Now,In Shaa Allah,I’ll try to emulate the noble prophet by practicing at least more of this beautiful and wonderful qualities.

  4. Salaam,
    Ma shaa Allah nice work by yourself. Indeed, following on the Sunnah can be greatly beneficial.
    I find it particularly hard to wake up. I was very pleased to hear about the hadith that Shaitaan ties three knots.
    I will try to remember it.
    Jazakallah khair!

  5. Jazak Allah khaera. May Allah reward the author for refreshing our memory with the Sunnah of our noble Prophet (SAW).

  6. SubhanAllah

    Its amazing when you were just thinking about the importance of following more Sunnah’s , and then you receive an email by Productive Muslim titled “12 Super Sunnahs We Should Seriously Begin To Follow”
    An excellent reminder!
    I often struggle with getting out of bed early, but from reading this, I have received the motivation I need – Just remind yourself its a sunnah!
    JazakAllah Khair !

  7. Allah our Creator knows what is best for us. So it is highly beneficial if we could obey Allah and our role model by implanting these simple actions in our day to day life.

  8. MashaAllahu la quwata illa billa! Great job in compilation of these sunnah! May Allah(SWT) but baraka in our knowledge and make it easy for all of us to implement it with sincerity in our lives and may Allah(SWT) accepts all of our efforts. JazakAllahukhairun, dear sister.

  9. Assalamun alaykum,

    May Allah reward you for reminding us about these important practices.

    I was wondering about the practice of “oiling the hair” – what sort of oil is used? I assume olive oil but can someone please explain this? Also, what about “hair gel” that some people use these days? can that be compared to “oiling”?

    Jazakallahu khayran

    • Walaikum asalaam

      I believe it would be olive oil as this is found in a hadith where the Prophet saw advises to use it as an ointment. I wouldn’t think hair gel would be the same thing as it is made of different components and is not oil – though I am not sure on that.

  10. Dear Sister,
    Well done. This is great contribution and the practice must be continued.
    One of my fellow objected on the title “Supper Sunnah” and requested that titles such as “supper” must not be given.

  11. Assalam alaikum..SubhanAllah, very amazing reminder. Whenever we learn anything from seerah it’s so humbling. Sallallahu ala Muhammad Sallallahu alaihi wa Sallam.

    JazakAllah Khair!

  12. Mash Allah what a beautiful well-written article that is totally needed and appreciated in these tough times.
    May Allah give us all the tawfeeq to carry out these beautiful sunnahs. Ameen.

  13. Jazaka Allahu Khiran. These are the duties we owe on to ourselves as muslims by doing this we are protecting our selves from evils and we are earning enormous reward because we are following the sunnah of rosulullahi SAW. Mothers let teach this to our children.

  14. Asalamualikum.. May allah’s peace and blessings be on all of us.. I am really thankful to the productive muslim coordinators., coz i have been searching for this sorta community to get involved in to lead my life in the way of allah subhanah wata’ala.. Jazakallah khair..

  15. Jazakallah kher for the bful article. .may Allah swt guves hidayah. .though we used to perform these things. But we didn know d importance..Thanks for letting us know…

  16. Jazak Allah khair for explaining the sunnahs in a simple and beautiful way. May Allah give us the tawfeeq to implement all the sunnahs. Ameen. May Allah bless you for your efforts. Ameen.

  17. Jazaakkillaah khair sister for this wonderful reminder. The article is short and sweet and can be easily followed. Barakkallaahu feekum.

  18. Masha’Allah a very informative article indeed. Its so very true that to finish our task we keep on sleeping late. I havent been able to finish my chapter today n being a medical student its hard to skip reading tonight hoping to get up early for fajr b’cz im quite sure i’ll be unsuccessful in doing so. But then also i’ll try. Plz pray that i am able to fulfill my islamic duties too.

  19. Really? These are ‘super-sunnahs’? sitting while eating and using the siwak? With exception of waking up for Fajr (which is a Fardh in addition to being sunnah) and visiting the sick, these are normal small sunnat. I though it was gonna be like, praying Salat Ul Dhuha (which is equivalent in reward to doing a Umrah, How many busy mothers could benefit from a simple sunnah like this?) Fasting the middle days of the month and Mon/Thurs, giving a constant small stream of sadaqa, memorizing the dua before sleeping and after waking, qiyyam and dua in the last third of the night before fajr…these are super sunnahs with super rewards.

    • Asalamu alaikum
      MashAllah what a beautiful list of sunnahs you gave there.
      The aim of this article was to highlight small sunnahs that many people forget or are not aware off. We should not see any sunnah of our Prophet as small as these could be heavy on our deeds. This is by no means belittling the sunnahs you mentioned.
      May Allah bless you always


  21. Dua before entering home:
    سم الله ولجنا ، وبسم الله خرجنا ، وعلى الله ربنا توكلن
    Bismillahi Walajnaa, Wa Bismillahi Kharajnaa, Wa ‘AlaaRabblnaa Tawakkalnaa
    ‘In the Name of Allah we enter, in the Name of Allah we leave, and upon our Lord we depend.’

  22. The most difficult one is waking up for Fajr. I m trying to make it a regular habit. Starting my day with Fajr brings me amazing productivity.

  23. Ma shaa Allah…a very good article about the simple sunnahs of our beloved Prophet. …I ask Allah to make it easy for all of us to follow the sunnahs. .
    jazak Allahu khair for increasing our knowledge in deen….may Allah reward you in abundance. …aameen

  24. Mashallah may Allah reward you for reminding us. “The one who indicates towards good id like the one who has done it.” A hadeeth.

  25. Jazak Allah Khyr sister for such a wonderful article, each sunnah is supported with proper references of hadiths etc., ma sha Allah! May Allah Taála reward you for your hard-work and gives you the best in both the worlds, Ameen. Love you for the sake of Allah <3 <3

  26. jazzakallahu.khairan my Allah (SWT) give us wisdom 2 implement.this sunnah of Aur beloved prophet sallal Lahu Alaihi Wasallam

  27. Alhamdulillah, May Allah make it easy for us.
    In addition to sitting while drinking, it is also recommend we drink in three breath.
    Jazàkunmllahu khairah

  28. mashallah an informative article and a reminder.We do many things but reading such articles make us doing and infirming ourselves in accordance to Sunnah..
    may Allah bless you

  29. Asalaam Aleykum Warahmatullah,
    Mashallah what an article, a step closer to a productive Muslim. All has been said and i would like to add more Barakah by saying Bismillah in everything i and all of us Muslims do. We might not have the same life span as the brothers and sisters before us but we Do have the means to reach their standards and more… This is one way of ensuring Allah’SWT ‘s ‘hand’ in all that you do plus, you get bonus points for just saying so. So start now, and in shaa Allah by His Will, all your activities will be full of His Blessings and Bounties, no matter how small, or huge

  30. As Salaam Alaikum. ..Jazakum Allahu Khairn for these beautiful reminders. Yesterday I decided to revive the sunnah of eating on the floor with my family InShAllah. We enjoyed it Alhamdulillah ?

  31. A really good reminder we tend to allow other issue to cloud our minds and over look the small things that will benefit us the most in our lives. so thank u and may the blessings of ALLAH be with us always.

  32. Assalam alaikum warahmatullah wabarakatuh! May Allah subhanahu wata’ala grant us the ability to put all these sunnahs to practice! Please advice me on how to share my knowledge to people across the globe! Jazakallahu khair!

  33. Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu
    ALHAMDULILLAAH very informative article In Shaa ALLAH we need to make intention before sleeping to wake up to pray Tahajjud or we could pray Isha in jamaat at the masjid and Fajr at the masjid where the reward is like you prayed the entire night.
    Also fasting on Mondays & Thursdays along with the three white days of the Islamic month along with other voluntary fasting.
    May ALLAH guide us all to what is good and grant us the taufeeq to follow the sunnah of our beloved Prophet sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam aameen
    Abu Jamal

  34. Assalamualaikum wa Rahmatoollah.

    Please always remember that ALL our actions are judged by our intention.

  35. Alhamdulillah…
    What a great job you have done on compiling all the little little sunnats together. Like whilst reading through it i pondered over the way i spend my life an how careless i am at not acting upon theses little sunnats . All the 12 points every single one of them were so beneficial.

  38. Assalamu Alaikum,

    Masha Allah!! very good article and informative it is.

    May Allah Bless you with success and send more good hadith.

  39. Assalam o Alikum Sister,

    I loved reading , and I appreciate Your efforts for awakening sunnah in US even after studying Medical which it self is time consuming and a difficult task.
    I wishh You good luck.


  40. Sunnah of Holy prophet Muhammad (PBUH) has whole educations in each feature of our lives. We just essential to find out the information of hadith in order to get spiritual direction which may lead to the method of jannah.

  41. Jazak allahu khair, this is very helpfull to lead our life
    as guided by our prophet ( peace b upon him)

  42. AssalamuAlaikum Sr. Aisha,
    I forgot to mention, What about the kohl (athmad) as mentioned in hadith; Prophet (ﷺ) said:
    “Use Ithmid for it clears the vision and grows the hair (eye-lashes).”
    (although we need to be aware of original ones in how to distinguish if they’re fake or original before they ruin our eye health)

    This might not sound relevant in this article, but I noticed a lot of us out there following trends that don’t really seem to match our Islamic lifestyle. I mean applying athmad, henna, etc also are good ways to revive the Sunnah. (I just hope to see more of that in an article someday :) btw J.A.K sister thank you for your share.

  49. this is the most important rules for mankind. In shillalah every all if maintain this shun nah rules, she/ he must good result for good at duniha and akerath. I maintain this rules inshallah as from heart & soul.

  50. assalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

    I am often intrigued that only hadith relating to Sitting while drinking water is narrated, as if standing and drinking is an act highly against Sunnah as well as detrimental to one’s health.

    While al Bukhari narrates from Hz Ali ibn Abi Talib rz. (may Allaah be pleased with him) that he drank whilst standing then he said: Some people say it is makrooh for one of you to drink whilst standing, but I saw the Prophet s.a.w. (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) doing what you have seen me do. (International Hadith numbering: 5615)

    Imam Al-Nawawi rh. (may Allaah have mercy on him), a leading Hanafi Hadith and Fiqh scholar has commented on this issue:

    “There is no contradiction in these ahaadeeth (of sitting or standing while drinking water), praise be to Allaah, and none of them are da’eef (weak). Rather they are all saheeh. The correct view is that the forbidding mentioned in them is to be understood as meaning that it is disliked. The fact that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) drank whilst standing indicates that it is permissible to do so. This is all that needs to be said on the matter.”

    Also, I have even learnt from reliable sources that Imam Shafi rh. used to drink while standing. And Imam Shafi is considered a weighty personality in the fields of both Hadith and deriving Fiqh thereof.

    Requesting moderators in all humility to acquaint themselves of the exact Sunnah of Prophet PBUH from the authentic narrations from him. And then the information should be made public, May you be guided by will of Allah.

    Please remember that people might take their learning of Religion from your posts, be sure to give them the complete picture of it so that they may be enlightened. JazakAllahu Khair.

  51. manshalaha i am muslim and happy to be muslim and olso happy to learn sunaha of the prophet muhamed scw

  53. Assalamualaikum. Masha’allah! This a great and informative article, especially the last Sunnah, which helped me a lot through my times of lethargy and laziness in prayer. May Allah shower blessings upon you for helping out your muslim brothers and sisters, and spreading the Sunnah of the Prophet (S.A.W.). Jazakallah khair!

  54. JazakAllah khair! I want to improve my relationship with Allah and the only way to do that is to follow the Qur’an and sunnah! Brothers and sisters don’t wait for everything to come to you, you have to put your part into your life and strive for success. You will turn back to Allah only if you turn sincere to him and look for success. Show Allah Subhanahuwata’aalah what great Muslim you are and be devout as much as you can be, and insha’Allaah with your sincerity in worship you will be rewarded with Jannah Insha’Allaah. JazakAllah Khair again for this post.
