What is a Sunnah Muakkadah



Respected Mufti Saheb

What is a Sunnah Muakkadah ?


In the name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu

It is that Sunnah which Nabi Salallahu Alayhi Wassalam and the Sahaaba Radiyallahu Anhum had done with continuity or had emphasized it and leaving this Sunnah without a valid reason will lead to committing a sin and this person will be deprived of Nabi Salallahu Alayhi Wassalam’s intercession on the day of Qiyammah.[1]
(Fatawa Rahimiya Pg191, Vol2)

”A person who leaves out a sunnatul huda (those practices which Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) carried out with the intention of worship, and not just as a human practice will be sinning and therefore he will be entitled to rebuke”[2]
(Nurul Anwar, Pg 171)
