Is the Sunnah a Wahy?

Q: Is Sunnah part of Wahy (Revelation) or not?


A: Sunnah (whatever is reported from the Prophet) is Wahy from Allah (Exalted be He) to His Messenger (peace be upon him) but in the wording of the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him). It is authentically reported that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “Verily, I have been granted the Qur’an and the like of it with it (i.e. The Sunnah).” May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
