Qur'an and Sunnah


Qur'an and Sunnah

Qur'an and Sunnah is an often quoted Islamic term regarding the sources of Islam.

Muslims hold that Islam is derived from two sources: one being infallible and containing compressed information — the Qur'an — and another being a detailed explanation of the everyday application of the principles established in the Qur'an: The Sunnah, or the living example of the Islamic prophet Muhammad.
