Shaikh Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him said, “Conforming to the Sunnah is better than an abundance of actions: [so] if, for example, someone were to say, ‘I want to lengthen the two Sunnah rak’ahs of the Fajr prayer due to the excellence of that time and to increase [my] actions.’ We would say to him, ‘You are not correct, because the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم used to keep them short.’”
