  Sunni Islam
The Sunni tradition is known in Arabic as the Ahl-i Sunnah (the People of Sunnah), a term which according to the earliest classical sources emerged in the ninth century.
The word "Sunnah" means custom, method, path or example and refers particularl y to the example of the prophet Muhammad as found in the Hadith.
Thus, the Ahl-i Sunnah are those who follow the tradition of the prophet and his companions in understanding the Islamic faith.

 Sunnah - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Terminologically, the word ‘Sunnah’ in Sunni Islam means those religious actions that were instituted by the Prophet Muhammad during the 23 years of his ministry and which Muslims initially received through consensus of companions of Muhammad (Sahaba), and further through generation-to-generation transmission.
The Sunnah is the way or deeds of Muhammad and validated by the consensus of companions of Muhammad (Sahaba) in Sunni Islam, and the way or deeds of Muhammad and the twelve Imams in Shi'a Islam, while Hadith is a collection of the narrations and approvals.
Sunnah must be made distinct from both fiqh, which are opinions of the classical jurists, and the Qur’an, which is revelation, not record.

Terminologically, the word ‘Sunnah’ means the deeds, sayings and approvals of Muhammad during the 23 years of his ministry, and this means that whatever he said, did, or approved during his ministry as a prophet and messenger of Allah is considered a sunnah, which Muslims are recommended to follow.
Sunnah in Islam is both the life of Muhammad (the sira) and his recorded and validated sayings (the hadith).
Sunnah must be distincted from both fiqh, which are opinions of the classical jurists, and the Qur’an, which is revelation, not record.

Then comes the Sunnah and clarifies the sentences and specifies the verses called 'Amah' and defines what is 'mutlaq' that is, in reference to the saying (Qaul) of The Prophet (peace be upon him), his deed (Fi'l) and the act he confirmed (Iqrar).
The Sunnah, too, has forbidden some adornments, and this is evident from the Prophet (peace be upon him) who is reported to have met some of his companions, and had a silk garment in one hand, and gold in the other, and said: These are prohibited to Muslim males, lawful to females.
Sunnah is not with The Qur'an in the same manner as 'Ar-Ra'e' with the Sunnah.

 The Meaning Of Sunnah - Islamic Forum
The Arabic word sunnah lexically means "road" or "practice." In the language of the Prophet and the Companions it denotes the whole of licit [lawful] practices followed in the Religion [dأƒآ®n], particularly the pristine (hanأƒآ®f) path of Prophets, whether pertaining to belief, religious and social practice, or ethics generally speaking.
The above meanings of sunnah are used in contradistinction to the other four of the five legal categories for human actions - fard (obligatory), sunnah, mubah (indifferent), makruh (disliked), haram (prohibited) - and applies in the usage of jurists from the second Hijri century onwards.
However, the jurists have stressed that the basis for all acts of worship categorized as sunnah is "obligatoriness" not "permissiveness" (al-asl fأƒآ® al-sunnah al-wujub la al-ibaha).

Sunnah means the way of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him).
Sunnah can also refer to those things that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) did in order to bring himself closer to Allah, in contrast to those things that he did simply out of habit or custom.
So, for example, one may ask whether it is a Sunnah to use prayer beads (misbahah) to count the utterances said in dhikr (remembering Allah), which would mean the same as asking whether the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) used prayer beads and whether doing so is a rejected innovation.

On this soil was set up a theological framework which left ample room for the most varied opinions, some of them hard on the borderline of Islam.
Gradually, however, spurious traditions also gained currency for which an elaborate canon of subjective and historical criticism was evolved for the reception or rejection of the traditions.
The Sunnah represents an authentic interpretation of the Qur'an, a valuable source of law and an infallible guide for the overwhelming majority of Muslims in every situation of their spiritual and secular life, as opposed to bid'ah (innovation).

Laxity in adherence to the Sunnah should be sincerely regretted and du'aa should be made for 'Tawfeeq' to practise the beloved Sunnats of Muhammad [sallallaahu alayhi wasalllam].

 A Summary of the Fundamentals of the Creed of the Ahl al-Sunnah wa al-Jamaah (www.sunnahonline.com)
They are named the "Jama'ah" because they are those who have gathered upon the Truth and have not divided into sects in the religion among themselves; they have gathered around the lawful rulers and have not revolted against them; and they have followed that which the Salaf of this nation have unanimously agreed upon.
Therefore, one may not oppose anything from the Book of Allâh, and the authentic Sunnah by analogy (qiyas), sensation (dhawq) and unveiling (kashf) of a mystic, opinion of a scholar (shaikh or imam), or anything similar.
The standard for distinguishing between all of that is whether that incident and individual is in agreement or not with the Book and the Sunnah.

 About Hadith/Sunnah
The explosion of Islam in the 7th and 8th centuries confronted Islamic scholars with a daunting task: to preserve the knowledge of the Sunnah of the Prophet (S).
Allah (SWT) preserved the Sunnah by enabling the companions and those after them to memorize, write down and pass on the statements of the Prophet (PBUH), and the descriptions of his way, as well as to continue the blessings of practicing the Sunnah.
All of this was achieved through precise attention to the words narrated, and detailed familiarity with the biographies of the thousands of reporters of hadith.

 Authority of the Sunnah ... 1/3
As the Sunnah, with all its three kinds (saying, act and confirmation), relates to the Holy Prophet, its true status in the Islamic law cannot be ascertained without ascertaining the status of the Holy Prophet himself.
On these three major grounds, there is no room for the misconception that the ‘obedience of the Messenger’ emphasized by the Holy Qur’an means the ‘obedience of the ruling authority.’ In fact, his obedience is necessary for the sole reason that he is a prophet, and his orders and acts, reflect the pleasure of Allah.
Hence, the ‘Sunnah’, which is nothing but a record of his sayings and acts, enjoys a binding authority on all Muslims who believe in Allah and His Holy Book.

Thereafter, whatever doubts were invented against the Hadith by the non-believers of Hadith were extended by them to deny the Sunnah as well, though the denial of the Sunnah is tantamount to denial of the Qur’an itself, as already explained.
Owing to ignorance on this point, the followers of Sunnah themselves are divided into different sects, and continue to accuse one another of disregarding the Sunnah.

The Companions of the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam) used to take the ruling on different matters in their lives from the Qur’aan, which they use to learn from Rasoolullaah (sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam).
Allah (subhaanahu wa ta`aalaa) did not stop by saying scripture only, but the inclusion of the Sunnah with the Qur’aan is an indication of its important and the obligation on us to follow it as we have to follow the Qur’aan.
Imaam Ash-Shaafi`ee goes on saying that the letter 'wa' ('and' between Scripture and Wisdom in the aayah) is a letter of conjunctions in Arabic which requires that the two parts it joins must be different otherwise the sentence will be redundant, and Allah (subhaanahu wa ta`aalaa) is far away from that; na`oodhu billaah.

To reject the Sunnah, as some misguided "Muslims" advocate, will render the whole Qur'an open to a hotchpotch of interpretations inspired by the individuals' whims and desires, which often come from the devil.
The Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, himself was well-aware that such ill-natured opinions would arise and hence gave a clear warning of this as reported by Al-Miqdam ibn Ma'di Karib, one of his Companions: "I have indeed been given the Qur'an and something similar to it besides it.
