The difference of the Sunnah between the Shia and Sunnite Muslims according to the Sunnite Muslims belief, only the Holy Prophets words, action and statement are considered as the Sunnah while the Shia Muslims know the Sunnah of the twelve Imams and Hazrat Zahra as a part of the Sunnah. The argument of the Sunnah all the Muslims believe in the Sunnah and this matter is one of the necessities in Islam. But only the Shia Muslims believe in the Imams Sunnah and infer to the Quran and the Holy Prophets sayings.
