Importance of the Prophet’s Sunnah

As the Qur’an is revelation of Allah to Muhammad (peace be upon him), the Sunnah likewise — not a third of it; not half of it; not two-thirds of it; not three-fourths of it; and not nine-tenths of it — all of it is the second revelation of Allah to His Messenger (peace be upon him). The Most High has said: “And whatsoever the Messenger (Muhammad) gives you, take it, and whatsoever he forbids you, abstain (from it), and fear Allah. Verily, Allah is severe in punishment.” (Qur’an, 59:7)
The Most High has said: “Nor does he speak of (his own) desire. It is only an inspiration that is inspired.” (Qur’an, 53:3-4)
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “Indeed I have been given the Qur’an and that which is similar to it along with it.” (Ahmad in Al-Musnad 28/410 and Abu Dawood in the Book of Sunnah; Chapter: Clinging to the Sunnah)
In another Hadith: “Indeed that which the Messenger of Allah has made haraam is just like that which Allah has made haraam.” (Ahmad, Al-Musnad-28/429 and Al-Tirmidhi in the Book of Knowledge; Ibn Maajah; and Al-Marwazee in As-Sunnah pg. 71; Ad-Daarimee within As-Sunan 1/473; and At-Tabaraanee in Al-Kabeer 20/274)
