Allah says : “And make Mashwara (consult) with them in affairs (of importance). Then when you have firmly decided, have trust on Allah. Verily Allah loves those who have trust (in Him)” (Qur’an 3 : 159)
Abu Huraira reported: I never saw anyone consult his companions more often than the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him.

Hasan Al-Basri on Consultation: People are never consulted except that the best option is made available
Imam Hasan al-Basri is of the opinion that such an order was given to the Prophet ﷺ so that consulting each other will become an established sunnah (tradition) of the this Umma (community). This consultation, even in domestic affairs, is something we can do religiously, intending reward from Allah (swt), by adhering to this sunnah. This is significant as we often do not see such actions, e.g. consultation and holding a family meeting, as something ‘religious’ or something that is encouraged by our faith.
This was the Sunnah of the Nabi ﷺ he consulted the Companions when making very important decisions. For example, the location of the battle of Uhud was decided based on the opinion of the Companions.
The prophet (saw) said ““Whoever revives an aspect of my Sunnah that is forgotten after my death, he will have a reward equivalent to that of the people who follow him, without it detracting in the least from their reward.” [Reported by al-Tirmidhi]
