Following the sunnah

Question ID: 30364


Many a time we hear that if we follow the sunnah then Allah gives us goodness in both this life and the Akhirah. Is this correct?

The reason I ask you this is that I get confused when I read things like the following:

‘Whilst I was studying in Damascus, I started praying Salah and growing a beard due to my increasing love for the Sunnah. I was thus arrested, imprisoned and tortured for five years.’
