Are we following the Sunnah ? If not then why not ?

I see people here who are like Shah se zeyada Shah ke wafadar, more chatholic then Pope itself !! Not to discoformt anybody, but when these people come out and give other people lecture to follow the exact Sunnah, then one might ask them, are they following the sunnah of Prophet pbuh ? Following is the fact which is mentioned clearly, I ask all of you, are you following it or not ?

"Ablutions (Wudu') Bukhari :: Book 1 :: Volume 4 :: Hadith 147

Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Umar:

People say, "Whenever you sit for answering the call of nature, you should not face the Qibla or Bait-ulMaqdis (Jerusalem)." I told them. "Once I went up the roof of our house and I saw Allah's Apostle answering the call of nature while sitting on two bricks facing Bait-ul-Maqdis (Jerusalem) (but there was a screen covering him. ' (FatehAl-Bari, Page 258, Vol. 1).
"


And if not then are you asking for forgiveness ?

"The Book of Purification (Kitab Al-Taharah) Muslim :: Book 2 : Hadith 507

Abu Ayyub reported: The Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: Whenever you go to the desert, neither turn your face nor turn your back towards the Qibla while answering the call of nature, but face towards the east or the west. Abu Ayyub said: When we came to Syria we found that the latrines already built there were facing towards the Qibla. We turned our faces away from them and begged forgiveness of the Lord. He said: Yes.
"


And how many who will buy a home or going for rent aprt or house, would consider this in their decisions ? Think about it !

Sunnah is important and unfortunately we Muslims are not following Islam even, we are following our desires or what we want Islam to be. We have our own version of Islam, some think only praying, fasting, performing Hajj and giving zakat will save us from hellfire but there are many other things which we don't do and now even don't feel bad even if that is happening in our societies.

We have decided to use Ribba as Halal way of doing business (Islamic Banking), we have decided not to have Caliphate or Sharia Law.

Reason for this is Muslims of today or I should say people who thinks that they are Muslims or who claim to be Muslims are Hypocrites and when I am saying that I include all the Muslims including myself.

We are the burden on this world as we are the chosen people of Allah who are supposed to implement Allah's will on earth but we have decided that we know more then Allah and we are better planner then Allah (Naoozbillah)

May Allah forgive all humans and Muslims in particular as we have all committed grave sins. We should pray to Allah for his mercy on al of us.

Change is inevitable. The only constant in the entire universe. Islam HAS to change and WE are the change as our ancestors had been the change in their time and so forth. Nothing stays the same in this reality.

Change is the fundamental Law of the Universe. Nothing returns to what it was. Have you ever seen a dying star return to its former glory? Have you ever seen a dead planet come back to life?

Till the time we don't return to what we had and who we were....we can't move ahead....I am not against technology but Allah has given us a system and chosen a system for us...till the time we don't implement it and we don't return to it we will get no where...only thing that will happen is we will be lost like we are today.

Fundamental law can't change....new laws under the divine guidance can be created.

Regarding dead plant...I have seen dead earth which is giving rise to plants and that's the same example quoted in Quran....One day we will rise from the same earth when the divine King (Allah) will be ruling the day...May Allah grant me and every Muslim Jannat on the same day.

Following the sunnah is optional not compulsory...From riding camels to eating pumpkins to eating with right hand to keeping beard all are sunnah which is not farz and therefore not compulsory. All the compulsory rules are listed in Quran...

Whole Quran did not say any word about the physical personality of prophet(PBUH) but we instead follow Quran ....we try to follow imaginary things......to follow sunnah mean become long bearded, green/white/black.....turban, surma in eyes...etc etc.....HAQEEQAT KHURAFAAT MAIN KHO GHAI UMMAT RAWAYAT MEIN HKO GHAI......well said by Iqbal.
