Chapter 3, Hadith & Seerah, The Authority of Sunnah / Monday, August 25th, 2008

It is totally wrong to say that the Sunnah of the Holy Prophet (SAWS) was compiled for the first time in the third century. In fact, the compilation had begun in the very days of the Holy Prophet (SAWS) as we shall see later, though the compilations in a written form were not the sole measures adopted for the preservation of the Sunnah. There were many other reliable sources of preservation also. In order to understand the point correctly we will have to know the different kinds of the Sunnah of the Holy Prophet (SAWS).
