On hearing this reply the man felt ashamed and straight away removed his hand from the Mataaf.
From this incident, my Ustadh, taught us that although religion is simple, easy and compromising as well as lenient, we cannot start doing our own actions and say that religion allows it because easiness lies in what we are doing. Instead, we are taught that whatever the Prophet of Allah صلي الله عليه و سلم has taught is easy and simple to act upon and carry out as he was the Prophet of Mercy.
Another point which my Ustadh pointed out was the love of such saints for the Prophet صلي الله عليه و سلم. Their love reached to such an extent that they were unable to see a person go against the Sunnah and they would not remain silent upon it. If this was the case, then we can imagine how punctual and dedicated they must be on their Sunan. Furthermore, if their dedication to the Sunan is as mentioned, then what would be the possibility of them committing a sin due to negligence?
May Allah increase our love for our Beloved Prophet صلي الله عليه و سلم and make this love reflect in our actions. May he give us the inclination to adopt all the Sunan and refrain from the Haram.
