[the Prophet’s] practices does something good it is accepted from him, and even if he makes a mistake, he is forgiven for it”.

2- الإمامُ زينُ العابدينَ عليه السلام: إنَّ أفضَلَ الأعمالِ عندَ اللّه ما عُمِلَ بِالسُّنَّةِ وإن قَلَّ.

3- رسولُ اللّه صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيه وَ آلِهِ: مَن سَنَّ سُنَّةً حَسَنةً عُمِلَ بها مِن بَعدِهِ كانَ لَهُ أجرُهُ ومِثلُ اُجُورِهِم مِن غَيرِ أن يَنقُصَ مِن اُجُورِهم شيئا، ومَن سَنَّ سُنَّةً سَيِّئَةً فَعُمِلَ بها بَعدَهُ كانَ علَيهِ وِزرُهُ ومِثلُ أوزارِهِم مِن غَيرِ أن يَنقُصَ مِن أوزارِهِم شيئا. (كنز العمّال: 43079).
3. The Prophet (SAWA) said, “Whoever astablishes a good habitual practice that people follow even after him, he will get his own reward for it as well as the like of their reward for performing it, without any decrease in their reward thereof. And whoever establishes an evil habitual practice that is followed by people after him, he will be responsible for the burden of their sins, without and decrease in their burdens thereof.”

النَّهيُ عن نَقضِ السُّنَّةِ الصالِحةِ /Prohibition of Discontinuing a Good Practice

4- الإمامُ عليٌّ عليه السلام في كتابٍ لَهُ إلى الأشتَرِ لَمّا وَلاّهُ مِصرَ: لا تَنقُضْ سُنَّةً صالِحَةً عَمِلَ بها صُدورُ هذهِ الاُمَّةِ، واجتَمَعَت بها الاُلفَةُ، وصَلَحَت علَيها الرَّعِيَّةُ، ولا تُحدِثَنَّ سُنَّةً تُضِرُّ بِشَيءٍ مِن ماضِي تِلكَ السُّنَنِ، فيكونَ الأجرُ لِمَن سَنَّها، والوِزرُ علَيكَ بما نَقَضتَ مِنها. (نهج البلاغة: الكتاب 53).
4. Imam Ali (AS) wrote in one of his letters to al-Ashtar, when he appointed him governor of Egypt, “Do not discontinue a good practice that the pioneers of this community acted upon, by virtue of which there was general unity and through which the subjects prospered. Do not innovate a practice that will infringe on these earlier practices in any way, for then the reward of those who had laid them down will continue , whereas you will be the one to bear the burden of breaching them.”
[Nahj al-Balagha: Letter 53]
