He who obeys the Messenger has indeed obeyed Allah, but he who turns away, then we have not sent you as a watcher over them.“

Quran 4:80

Yes, that is the truth, and it in my view is true too that Hadiths, even when not direct orders from The Messenger, even now may example how The Messenger obeyed, and so be helpful as secondary or tertiary sources for any who hope to obey Allah as The Messenger did. (A good example is ever helpful for those who wish to learn, surely, even when events or persons or sayings are described,–not by Allah nor by The Messenger–but by eye witnesses, or even by middlemen working for factual history, as GOD wills.)

Now, this day, does that mean each muslim does well now and tomorrow to obey Allah exactly and only as The Prophet obeyed? Perhaps so. At any rate, it is without doubt that when Allah wants originals, not a copy, He knows how to make them, too
