The ahadith have various levels of authenticity and reliability. the Books by Bukhari carry the Highest authenticity as all of them have been traced back to the original narrator. the reliability depends on the number of witnesses and their repoprt of what was said. the highest reliability calls for a minimum of 4 narrators and each saying the exact same thing. The lowest reliability being just one witness.

The Ahadith are not scripture and while true in terms the stated narrator said them, errors are possible.

We do not accept the Ahadith as being the word of God(swt) they are the words of men. As such we do not follow them out of Faith and just to the level they can be verified and we understand the full circumstanced under which Muhammad(PBUH) said what he is reported as having said.

The Qur'an is Scripture. The Ahadith are a Historical account of what Muhammad(PBUH) was witnessed as having said in his personal life. We use the Ahadith and Fiqh-ul-Sunnah as to gain an understanding of how the Muslims at that time followed Islam.

What about muslims who do not go to the church or pray 5 times a week, are they really muslims or are they just titled muslims but are not really muslims.
I am wondering just to see if it is like christianity, if a person says they are christian and dont pray or read the bible, most church goers look at them as not real christians. i just want to know if it is the same for the muslims. thanks for answering the questions.
if a muslim does not say it .it is OK It is just
respectful phrase
we should grow up with respectful phrases not only with the prophets also with who bigger than us like here in this forum Muslims call each other brother or sister someone asked the prophet Mohammad pbuh who will be in highest level in the paradise [the fardos] the prophet said who is better in ethics muslims who do not go to the mosque or pray 5 times in day it is better to go to mosque because ALLAH gth will reward me more but if i did not pray that is big sin the prophet [s.a.w ] said the different between Muslim and non muslim the pray---- pray means thanks ALLAH for everything make us in continuing permanent with ALLAH GTH the smart muslim should know God in good times Allah will help him in bad times ahadet about the real Muslim The Prophet (s) said: “The best of you are the most well-mannered and generous ones who go on intimate terms with people and people go on intimate terms with them, and whose places of residence are frequently trodden on by guests.”
“He who has a good nature will have the reward of those who observe fasting in days and keep awake praying at nights.”
“You cannot treat people by means of your wealth; hence, you should treat them by means of your moral conduct.”
Imam al-Baqir (a) said: “The most perfect believers, in the sight of faith, are the most well-mannered.”
Imam as-Sadiq (a) said: “After the fulfillment of the obligatory religious duties, the most favorable thing that a servant offers to Allah is to extend the moral conducts over people.”
“Allah gives a servant for his moral conduct the same reward that He gives to the mujahid.”
“The moral conduct dissolves sins in the same way as the sun dissolves snow.”
“Piety and moral conduct construct the countries and prolong the ages.”
