Sunnah Sports Academy

‘A strong believer is better and more beloved to Allah than a weak believer, though there is good in each.’

– The Prophet Muhammad (Allah bless him and grant him peace)

Sunnah Sports Academy

The Sunnah Sports Academy (SSA) is an initiative that is focused on the physical ‘sunnah sports’. They can be practised by everyone—male and female, young and old. Participation in these sports contributes towards spiritual and physical development, as well as reviving these precious sunnahs. 

Strength of body, spirit, and mind.

Strength for devotion

The physically strong believer has an advantage over the physically weak, as the strong believer is more able to complete physical acts of worship, such as prayer, fasting and the Hajj pilgrimage, with strength and consistency

The ability to serve

Physical strength and agility makes the believer better able to participate in the many spheres of life, including earning a living, supporting those around them, and fulfilling their obligations.

Fortitude and resilience in life

The physical discipline taught by sunnah sports translates into fortitude and resilience—physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.

The Sunnah Sports

as practised and encouraged by the Prophet Muhammad (God bless him and grant him peace)


Help us revive these Sunnah Sports, now and for generations to come! Be a part of this lasting legacy by supporting Al Ansaar.

Whoever revives a tradition (sunnah) of mine that had died after me, will receive the reward of everyone who practices it, without decreasing their reward at all.

The Prophet Muhammad (God bless him and grant him peace)
