Annas reported that Rasulallah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “I have left among you two things you will never go astray as long as you hold fast to them: the Book of Allah and my Sunnah. (Haakim)
As Almighty Allah has revealed in this verse: [Today I have perfected your religion for you and completed My blessing upon you, and I am pleased with Islam as a religion for you] (Al-Ma'idah 5:3), Islam is the final divine religion. Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) is [the Messenger of Allah and the Seal of the Prophets] (Al-Ahzab 33:40).
The faithful learn the kind of moral values they need to display in order to attain the approval, compassion, and Paradise of Allah; what they must avoid and what they must abide by; what is lawful and what is forbidden; in short, all the details regarding the kind of life that will be pleasing to Allah from the Qur'an. Another mercy and blessing of our Lord for believers is the Sunnah of the Prophet
The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) is a blessed individual, whom Allah has sent as a role model for all people with his moral values:
[You have an excellent model in the Messenger of Allah for all who put their hope in Allah and the Last Day and remember Allah much] (Al-Ahzab 33:21)
The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) is a role model for everyone with his faith, godliness, knowledge, and superior moral values. With his patience, trust in Allah, courage, devotion, closeness to Allah, justice, compassion, love, affection for believers, and foresight, he possessed moral values that are greatly admired by the faithful.
All believers strongly desire and strive to possess these qualities to attain the moral model required by the the Qur'an. For all these reasons, all his words, decisions, recommendations, advice, and life —the Sunnah — represent a most valuable guide for all those who wish to understand and live by the Qur'an.
Many verses of the Qur'an emphasize the importance of obeying the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) and adhering to his path in. One of these reads:
[Whoever obeys the Messenger has obeyed Allah. If anyone turns away, We did not send you [Muhammad] to them as their keeper.] (An-Nisaa' 4:80)
The Sunnah is the interpretation, explanation of, and commentary on the Qur'an. Therefore, no believer, neither man nor woman, has any right to reject it:
[When Allah and His Messenger have decided something, it is not for any man or woman of the believers to have a choice about it. Anyone who disobeys Allah and His Messenger is clearly misguided.] (Al-Ahzab 33:36)
[Whatever the Messenger gives you, you should accept, and whatever he forbids you, you should forgo. Have fear [and respect] of Allah — Allah is severe in retribution.] (Al-Hashr 59:7)
