He has no Partners, and is in no need of any. He is Alone; He made the Heavens and th e Earth. He knows what was before time, what is present and what is after. He shows the straight path to whosoever He wishes, and whoever He chooses to bless. He makes them the best among the best. O Allah, send salutations on our Prophet (May Allah bless him and grant him peace), who is the last and final Messenger. After him there will be no Prophets to come until the Day of Judgement .

Th us as Muslims, we are required to believe that the Qur’aan and Sunnah go hand in hand together as our sources of legislated law. Both are revelation from almighty Allaah, the most High. The Qur’aan is composed of the actual words of almighty Allaah, wherea s the Sunnah is expressed through the words, actions and approvals of the Prophet Muhammad(peace be upon him). Another difference is that the Qur’aan is recited formally in the prayers whereas the Sunnah is not.
