The two fundamental sources of Islam are the Qur'an (the word of ALLAH ) and the Sunnah (the example) of the Prophet . By Sunnah, we mean the actions, sayings and silent permissions (or disapprovals) of the Prophet Muhammad.
It is a part of our faith to follow the sunnah as Allah Himself has commanded the following:
“Say: Obey Allah and obey the Messenger, but if you turn away, he (the Prophet) is only responsible for the duty placed on him (i.e. to convey Allah's Message) and you for that placed on you. If you obey him, you shall be on the right guidance. The Messenger's duty is only to convey (the message) in a clear way.”
This verse clearly tells us the overriding importance of Hadith to Muslims. We should be eager to learn and follow the teachings of the Prophet as expressed in Hadith. If we are negligent in this respect, it is we who have to answer before Allah .

Narrated 'Umar bin Al-Khattab: I heard Allah's Messenger saying, "The reward of deeds depends upon the intentions and every person will get the reward according to what he has intended. So whoever emigrated for worldly benefits or for a woman to marry, his emigration was for what he emigrated for."”
