“One should have such love for the Sunnah that he wishes to emulate all of them, even those actions which may not be within his capacity to enact.

For example, to remain hungry for days on end is a sunnah, but not everybody has the capacity to perform this. However, despite not being able to observe such actions, a person should still have love and admiration for them.

Shaykh-al-Ḥadīth, Shaykh Mawlānā Muḥammad Zakariyyā rahmatullahi alayh explains this with a beautiful example. He says,

‘The likeness of such people is like that of a diabetic. The diabetic will still have lots of love for sweet things, but because of his condition he will not be able to fulfil his desire.

Similarly, one should have love for every action of Sunnah even though his current capacity may not allow him to observe them.’”
