It is necessary for the student of knowledge distinguish himself in his general affairs from the methods/ways of the laymen

Imam Khateeb al-Baghdadi rahimahullah said:

“It is necessary for the student of knowledge distinguish himself in his general affairs from the methods/ways of the laymen by using the narrations of the Messenger sallalahu alayhi wa salam as much as he can and by employing the Sunnah upon himself. For verily Allah, the Exalted said:

لَقَدْ كَانَ لَكُمْ فِي رَسُولِ اللَّهِ أُسْوَةٌ حَسَنَةٌ

Indeed in the Messenger of Allah (Muhammad) you have a good example to follow

[33:21]
