Abu Bakr as-Siddeeq رضي الله عنه said:
“I have not left (off) anything that the Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم use to do. Indeed I fear that if I leave off anything from his commands that I will deviate” Agreed upon by Bukhaari and Muslim.
Shaykh Ali mentions: “How much have we abandoned from his (the prophet) commands while we laugh and play! Oh Allaah we ask you for your forgiveness. I ask Allaah, firmness for myself and for you.
Allaah the Most High says:
“So let those beware who oppose the Prophet’s order, lest some trial befall them or a painful punishment.” (24:63)
