As you are aware, the Sunnah refers to the Commands, prohibitions, sayings, actions and tacit approvals of the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him. On the significant importance of the Sunnah, the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said:--
"LET ME NOT FIND ONE OF YOU, RECLINING ON HIS
COUCH, WHEN HE HEARS SOMETHING REGARDING WHAT
I HAVE COMMANDED OR FORBIDDEN SAYING: 'We do not
Know. What we found in Allah's Book we have followed'.
This is a good reminder against today's casual attitude with which some Muslims, unfortunately, discard the Sunnah of our Prophet, peace be upon him. Allah, Praised and Exalted is He, repeatedly links obedience of Allah to obedience of His Messenger. Allah says:-- "AND WHOEVER OBEYS THE MESSENGER, THEREBY OBEYS ALLAH".-(4:80) and "WHATEVER THE MESSENGER GIVES YOU TAKE IT, AND WHATEVER HE FORBIDS YOU, REFRAIN FROM IT".-(59:7)..there are many verses of the Qur'an itself condemning having a 'Qur'an only' approach.
To divorce the Sunnah from Islam is to render Islam ineffective...for example, the Qur'an directs us to pray and give Zakkat, but without the Sunnah, how would we know how to pray or calculate and pay/give Zakkat?...
