New to Islam?
Fard, Wajib and Sunnah

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

Mufti Ebrahim Desai
