Do Not Discard The Sunnah.

As-Salaam alaikum,
The Noble 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.'
(Abu Dawud)

This is a good reminder against today's casual attitude with which some Muslims, unfortunately, discard the Sunnah of our Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam.
Allah, Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, 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 whatevr he forbids you, refrain from it." (59:7)... there are many ayats/verses of the Qur'an itself ccondemning 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, but without the Sunnah, how would we know how to pray? Without the Sunnah, how would we calculate and pay the Zakkat?
