A comparision between the Qur'an and Hadith.

The Details of the Question
Quran giving values and principles is Deen when Hadith is the narrated history of how the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) and his companions managed to live by Quran. Study of Hadith gives us an opportunity of benefiting from the experience of our elders. Quran in a nutshell tells us of what to do while hadith guids us of how to do. Precisely speaking Quran is destination and Hadith is path to it. Am I right?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

In fact, this thought is not wrong, but may be insufficient. Our Prophet (peace be upon him) used to have revelations besides the Qur’an. And he would have the authority of determining a fardh (obligation) or a haram (prohibition) (with the permission of Allah). In this respect, it is possible to see the words in the question as right but in a narrow sense.
