ABSTRACT
In this article, the coverage area of sunnah, which is composed of Prophet Muhammed's words, actions and approvals and which is one of the main dynamics that constitute Islamic civilization, is dealt with. Sunnah, with the notion that Muhammed is the last prophet, presents a universal and eternal model of life specifically to his followers and generally to all humanity. The sample heritage he left us has a width, depth and wealth that surround all communities and all ages in terms of its main principles. Sunnah, surrounding all subjective and objective worlds of existence has an embracing characteristic. In some ways, sunnah is a phenomenon comprising Islamic culture and civilization. Different missions and meanings loaded to sunnah during the process of conceptualizing support this, as well. Its qualities of being eternal and universal, its consistency, regularity, simplicity, sampling and flexibility allows one to make interpretations on changing and developing situations. It is also possible to update sunnah with its new versions without separating it from its historical context and spirit. It is obvious that the opposite case would be controversial to the universality and eternity of sunnah. It can easily be understood that all good, right and beneficial things conveyed to us from Hz. Muhammed could be considered within the content of sunnah.
