Bite on to it (i.e. the Sunnah) with your back molar teeth ..

“Abu Najeeh al-Irbaad ibn Saariyah (radi Allahu anhu) said: The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) gave us a profound admonition that frightened the hearts and caused the eyes to shed tears. So we said, “O Messenger of Allah, it is as if it is a farewell admonition, so advise us.” He (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “I advise you with having fear of Allah, The Mighty, The Majestic, and hearing and obeying even if your ruler was a slave. For surely, he who lives from amongst you will see much differing, so it is upon you to be upon my Sunnah and the Sunnah of the Rightly Guided Caliphs. Bite on to it (i.e. the Sunnah) with your back molar teeth, and beware of newly invented matters for surely every innovation (Bid’ah) is misguidance.” [Abu Dawud and at-Tirmidhi – Classed as Hadith Hasan Sahih]”
