ABSTRACT
Fazlurrahman classifies sunna in two categories. The former is "Mutlak sunna" or "Nabawi sunna", the latter is the "living sunna". Nabawi sunna is the behaviors (or actions) of our prophet himself. In the other evaluations of him, he classifies sunna as "ideal sunna" and "living sunna". Ideal sunna is the words and behaviors of the holy prophet itself; Living sunna is the sunna that the community of Islam put into practice within the frame of the ideal sunna. Hadith means the material of sunna and sunna means the solution ways derived from this material through tafakkur. In this context, sunna is the act of deriving practical norms from the hadith material with mind. There appeared a third concept of hadith from both living sunna and the individual comments of the matters reported from the holy prophet, by means of the narrations little in quantity, which forms the meaning of sunna in terms of content.
