  1. Some hadiths confirm the decrees brought by the Qur'an. Such are the hadiths that forbid disobedience to parents, false testimony, and murder.

  2. Some hadiths explain the decrees brought by the Qur'an and give complementary information. In the Qur'an, it is ordered to perform prayers, to perform pilgrimage, to give zakat, but it is not specified how they will be. We learn how to perform these acts of worship from the hadiths.

  3. Some hadiths also make provisions on issues that the Qur'an has never touched.

"Say O Prophet: Obey Allah and the Messenger. If you turn away, know that Allah does not love disbelievers." (Âl-i İmran, 3/32)

"Obey Allah and the Prophets, hopefully, you will be shown mercy." (Âl-i İmrân, 3/132);

"Whatever the Prophet has brought you, take it; whatever he forbids, refrain from it." (Hashr, 59/7).
