Difference between Fard, Wajib and Sunnah

By Mufti Ebrahim Desai


Q.) What is the difference between Fard, wajib and Sunnat Mua'kadah? [Aziz]

A.) Fardh is compulsory. A person who denies or rejects a Fardh will become a Kaafir.

wajib is also something necessary, although of a slightly lesser degree than Fardh. The person who denies this will not become a Kaafir, but will be a Faasiq (flagrant sinner).

Sunnat-e-Muakkadah are those actions of Nabi Sall-Allahu alayhi wa sallam which were done regularly. A person who leaves out such an act will be sinning.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
