  • The Significance Of Sunnah and Hadith.

    As-Salaam alaikum,
    The emulation of Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, lies at the heart of Islamic spirituality and piety... and it is based upon his Sunnah, or traditions and actions.

    While his inner being or prophetic substance, is the invisible fountainhead of spirituality and his life stands as a portrait whose details the Muslim contemplates throughout his/her life, the SUNNAH provides concrete examples and access to that Muhammadan model which the Qur'an commanded the faithful to imitate.

    The Sunnah is a commentary upon the Qur'an and the manner by which Muslims came to learn how the truths of the Sacred Text were lived by the most perfect of Allah's creation in a life that was human yet completely immersed in the Sacred.

    Any difference between the Sunnah and Hadith? Well, in the traditional Islamic sources, the difference between the two they show is that - the Hadith contains the words and actions and practices of which the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, approved among earlier Arab traditions, and so allowed to be continued by Muslims.

    In the case of the Sunnah, the Muslim sees the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, through his Sunnah - - how he acted, spoke, walked, ate, judged, loved and worshiped. The Sunnah is, therefore, in a sense the continuation of the life of the Prophet for later generations to the end of time on earth.
    Best Regards.
