      As-Salamu `Alaykum. What is the exact meaning of Makruh? What are the consequences of doing something that is Makruh?





      Wa `alaykum As-Salamu wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.

      In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

      All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.
      Dear sister in Islam, we would like to thank you for the great confidence you place in us, and we implore Allah Almighty to help us serve His cause and render our work for His Sake.

      Answering the question in point, Dr. Muzammil H. Siddiqi, former President of the Islamic Society of North America, states:

      "The word Makruh literally means something "disliked" or "undesirable." According to Shari`ah it is any action that one is told not to do without making it absolutely prohibited.

      It is important to avoid doing that which is Makruh. There is no sin and no punishment if a person commits the Makruh, but it is blameworthy. Those who want to be pious and conscious of Allah should avoid doing any action that is Makruh.

      According to Shari`ah, the actions are divided into five categories:

      1- Fard or Wajib meaning obligatory or mandatory.

      2- Mustahabb or Mandub meaning commendable or recommended.

      3- Haram or Mahzur meaning forbidden.

      4- Makruh meaning disliked and not recommended.

      5- Mubah or Halal meaning permissible and allowed."

      If you have any further comments, please don’t hesitate to write back!

      May Allah guide you to the straight path, and guide you to that which pleases Him, Amen.


      Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. What is the meaning of Makruh? And what is the difference between Makruh and Haram? Your reply will be very much appreciated!



      Wa `alaykum As-Salamu wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.

      In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

      All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.
      Dear brother in Islam, thank you very much for having confidence in us and we hope Allah Almighty guide us to carry out this noble task successfuly.

      Sheikh Muhammad Saleh Al-Munajjid, the prominent Saudi Islamic lecturer and author, answers as follows:

      "The Arabic word 'Makruh' means detested, the opposite of liked or loved. In the terminology of Shari`ah, it refers to something which the Lawgiver asks us not to do, but the injunction is not in a definitive manner. It may be said that it means something refraining from which earns a person reward as long as he does not do it out of obedience, but a person who does it will not be punished, either.

      As for the Arabic word 'Haram', it means forbidden. In the terminology of Shari`ah, it refers to something that the Lawgiver requires us not to do, the injunction here is in a definitive manner. Haram is the opposite of Halal (permitted). A person will be rewarded for keeping away from Haram as long as he refrains from doing it out of obedience, not out of fear, shyness or the inability to do it; in those cases he will not be rewarded for not doing it.”

      Dear scholars, As-Salamu `Alaykum. What is the difference between fard and wajib?

      Dear questioner, we commend your keenness on getting your self well-acquainted with Islam and its teachings, and we implore Allah Almighty to help us serve His cause and render our work for His Sake.

      According to the majority of jurists, there is no difference between fard and wajib, except in the Pilgrimage (Hajj), where non-performance of a wajib does not invalidate the pilgrimage, but necessitates expiation by slaughtering.

      However, the Hanafi jurists hold that there is a difference between the fard and the wajib. They maintain that the fard is that which the Lawgiver strictly requires to be done, and whose obligatory character is proved by definitive evidence, whereas the wajib is that which has been proved by speculative evidence.

      Someone who denies the fard is considered a kafir (disbeliever), as he or she is denying what has been ordained by clear-cut and decisive texts. However, someone who denies the wajib is not considered a disbeliever but as fasiq (disobedient). To illustrate, someone who denies the five daily prayers is considered a disbeliever because they are fard, while one who denies the witr prayer, which is wajib in the Hanafi School, is not considered a disbeliever.

      I'm sorry but I think I won't be able to find a complete list of makruh things as every school of thought has a slight difference of opinion regarding makruh and wajib, for example, according to maliki fiqh meat of dog is makruh but according to other three schools of thought(hanafi, sha'fi and hanbali) its haram.

      But if you are looking for a status of particular thing then you can ask a scholar directly or search on internet.

      In simple words ... haraam is something which has been forbidden clearly in Quraan by Allah swt or through Sunnah or Ijmaa (concensus of Scholars) with a Qat'e - Solid evidence .. i.e. in the quraan it says 'wa laa taqra buz zina inna hu kaan faahisha ... '' that do not go near fornication / adultry .. indeed it is a vulger act.. and makrooh is something which is disliked .... an example would be .. a hadith of the prophe SAW ..''do no face the qibla or have your backs to it whilst you are in the toilet'' ....
      "My dear heart never think you are better than others. Listen to their sorrows with compassion. If you want peace, don't harbour bad thoughts do not gossip and don't teach what you do not know." [Maulana Rumi]

      Peace

      From memory in a talk I think it goes on a mirror like scale:

      Fard = reward for enjoining and sin for omitting
      Mustahab = reward for enjoining and no sin for omitting
      Muba = no reward for enjoing or omitting
      Makrooh = sin for enjoining but no reward for omitting
      Haram = sin for enjoing and reward for omitting

      The difference being that avoiding haram is in itself a good deed whereas avoiding makrooh is merely avoiding the sin.

      Also by doing the same makrooh over and over it is of no real consequence other than the sin being earned over and over, however, with the same haram thing being done over and over it can be classed as kufr.

      Fard and Haram are absolute opposites too ... it is fard on us to avoid haram and haram for us to avoid a fard.
      The Prophet(SAW) said:
      "I am leaving you two things and you will never go astray as long as you cling to them -- they are the Book of Allah and my Sunnah." [Reported by Al- Haakim - Sahih].

      6. The Somewhat Disliked (makruh tanzihan) is that which we have been lightly commanded to leave, though it is not sinful or blameworthy to do. There is reward in leaving it.

      7. The Prohibitively Disliked (makruh tahriman) is that which we have firmly commanded to leave, through a text open to the possibility of interpretation.

      Denying such a command entails misguidance but not disbelief. Performing such an action is sinful.

      8. The Forbidden (haram) is that which we have been firmly commanded to leave, through a decisively-established text.

      Thanks Sister, after searching found things that are Makroh during Hajj:

      Rule Of Action
      The pebbles should be of the size of big grams. It is permissible even if they are equal to date-stones in size. It is Makroh to perform Rami with big stones (zubda).

      How To Perform Rami At Jamrat-Ul-Aqaba
      The Masnon time for the Rami performed at Jamrat-ul-Aqaba on the 10th Zilhijja is from sunrise till moon. It is also permissible from noon to sunset but after sunset it is Makroh. This, however, excludes the old aged and ailing persons as well as the women for whom this Rami is not Makroh even after sunset (Zubda.) Nowadays the concourse of people becomes so intense that some causalties have even occurred in the attempt to perform Rami before noon. Therefore the permissibility to perform Rami upto sunset should be availed of. If women do not find it convenient before sunset, they should perform Rami after sunset. Likewise ailing and weak male persons may also perform Rami after Maghrib, and they should not miss it.

      Rule Of Action
      It is Makroh to perform Rami with impure pebbles, it is therefore advisable to wash them before Rami though there is no Harm in using them unwashed unless their impurity becomes certain.
