In the name of Allah the Most Gracious the Most Merciful
Following the Sunnah is better than preforming many actions
By Shaykh Muhammad bin Saalih al-’Uthaymeen may Allah have mercy on him
The shaykh mentions this benefit in his explanation of “Mumti'” 1/407:
If someone wanted to elongate the recitation, bowing, and prostration for the two sunnah units of Fajr, then we say that this opposes the sunnah of the Prophet (peace be upon him) because he would always shorten it.
