CONTENDING WITH WHAT THE PROPHET (ALLAH BLESS HIM AND GIVE HIM PEACE) HAS BROUGHT
p75.3 The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said,
“None of you believes until his inclinations conform to what I have brought.”
(Nawawi:) This means a person must examine his acts in light of the Koran and sunna, suspending his own inclinations and following what the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) has brought. The hadith resembles the word of Allah Most High,
“When Allah and His messenger have decided a matter, no believer, male or female, has a choice in their affair” (Koran 33:36).
