Applying What You Know

In ‘Siyar A’lam an-Nubala” (7/184), Sufyan ath-Thawri said:

ما بلغنى عن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم حديث قط إلا عملت به ولو مرة

“There isn’t a single hadith of the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) that has reached me except that I acted upon it, even if only once.”

ِAnd in ‘as-Siyar’ (9/457), it’s mentioned that al-Imam Ahmad bin Hambal said:

ما كتبت عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم حديث إلا وقد عملت به حتى مر بي في الحديث أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم احتجم وأعطى أبا طيبه ديناراً فأعطيت الحجام ديناراً حين احتجمت

“I never wrote down a hadith of the Prophet (peace be upon him) except that I acted upon it, to the point that I came across a report that the Prophet (peace be upon him) got cupped and gave Abu Taybah (his cupper) a dinar. So, I got cupped and gave the cupper a dinar.”
