    Assalam alaikum,
    The Messenger of Allah, Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said:--"Let me not find one of you, reclining on his couch, when he hears somethig 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 Hadith is a good reminder against today's casual attitude with which some Muslims, unfortunately, discard the Sunnah of our Prophet, may Allah bless and grant him peace. Allah, Exalted and Wise 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 then pay/give Zakkat?....
