Does a person get thawab (reward) when he does something that is sunnah without being aware of it?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

Intention is important in worshipping. A person who acts in accordance with sunnah without being aware of it gets thawab for his deed but he does not get as much thawab as a person who acts with the intention of sunnah.

However, a person who always acts in accordance with sunnah does not have to think that what he is doing is sunnah all the time; he gets the reward of sunnah when he does it.
