Question & Answer
What is wajib,is it command from Almighty Allah or Prophet Muhammad(pbuh)?


بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

We begin with Allah’s blessed name, we praise him and we glorify him, seek his forgiveness and ask him to guide us. Whoever Allah guides, None can lead astray and whoever he misguides, None can guide. There is no power and no strength except from Allah, The most high, the Most great, the most powerful. We bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. We pray for peace and blessings on all the noble messengers and in particular on the last of them all “the blessed prophet Mohammad (pbuh)”

There is a difference of thought on Wajib, some say that 'Wajib' is a small degree below than fard, However the majority of scholars consider 'fard' and 'Wajib' same.

Fard: A command that had reached us with out any error or any doubt and whose meaning is definite (command given by Allah through Quran), falls under the category of fard.

Wajib:A command that had reached us with definite meaning or ambiguous and has a room for even slightest error, (command given through authentic Hadith), falls under the category of Wajib.

The terms like, fard, wajib, Sunnah, etc. are the terms used by scholars and jurists of Islam to determine exact level of importance of an act or a deed.

Fard and Wajib means: an action that, if performed, entails reward, and if neglected, entails punishment. Denying a fard makes you kafir, while denying a Wajib does not.

Is it command from Almighty Allah or Prophet Muhammad(pbuh)?

It is commanded by Allah and/ or prophet Mohammad(pbuh). And Allah alone knows the best.

I ask Allah to make this a sincere effort, seeking his pleasure, and I ask him to grant us refuge in him from the evils within ourselves, and that in our deeds. I ask him to grant us success in achieving whatever pleases him; And May Allah Shower His blessings and mercy upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his family and his Companions and on all those who follow him until the final hour.
