The Islamic morality is that to make people fair and just in their life dealings. Qur’an and Sunnah both are the complete code and guidance of life. The life of Prophet (PBUH) set a good example of the teaching of Qur’an. His life is correlated with the Qur’an. The Qur’an and Sunnah guide the Muslim’s faith life and ethics. They both are important because it describe the virtues and vices of life that are in the life. All the Muslims of the world strictly follow the teachings of Qur’an and Sunnah despite of living in different parts of the world. That bring Muslim nation united on a single platform at one point. Any person who violates the law of Qur’an and Sunnah has strictly punished not in this world but also the world after here. As Holy Prophet (PBUH) said
