Question:

Can please clarify in detail what is difference between hadeeth and sunnah?

Are both same?

 

Answer:

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Hadeeth is the knowledge of the sayings of Rasulullah (Salallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam), his actions, conditions, acknowledgments of actions and that of his Sahaba (Radhiyallahu `anhum).

Sunnah according to majority ulama is a synonym for  hadeeth[1].
