  1. Since everyone agrees that both fard and wajib are obligatory on the person who is accountable and that if he fails to do them then he is exposing himself to Allah’s, may He be exalted, punishment, the difference between the majority and Abu Hanifah on this matter is one of wording, which does not result in any serious difference.

    What one needs to understand about fiqhi decisions is that all scholars agree on this.

  2. “Wajib” and “Fard” are both terms used in Islamic jurisprudence (Fiqh) to describe religious obligations, but they are often used in different schools of thought within Islam and may carry slightly different meanings:Wajib: In some Islamic traditions, “wajib” refers to an action that is considered obligatory but does not carry the same level of emphasis or severity as “fard.” It means that a Muslim is required to perform the action, and neglecting it is sinful, but the consequences for neglecting a “wajib” act may be considered less severe than for a “fard” act. Fard: “Fard” is generally used to describe an obligation that is of the highest order in Islamic jurisprudence. It refers to actions that are mandatory, and neglecting them is considered a grave sin. In essence, fulfilling “fard” duties is seen as essential for a Muslim’s faith and practice. It’s important to note that the usage and understanding of these terms can vary among different Islamic scholars and schools of thought (e.g., Sunni and Shia). Some may use the terms interchangeably or have nuanced interpretations. It’s always advisable to refer to a qualified Islamic scholar or authority within your specific tradition or school of thought for precise guidance on religious obligations.

  3. fard means compulsory it refers to those acts and things which are compulsory on a Muslims.wajib also necessary an act that is almost as compulsory as a fard.
