Makruh (Abominable)

It means unpleasant, ugly, abominable. As a term, like in wajib, the things that are not wanted to be done or preferred by the uncertain words of Allah and his Messenger (p.b.u.h) are called makruh. What is meant by uncertain words of Allah is that the meanings understood by those words are not certain. What is meant by uncertain words of the Prophet is that the meanings are not certain and it is not certain whether they were uttered by the Prophet or not. More serious makruh is close to haram and is called Makruh Tahrimi . The less serious makruh is close to halal (permissible) and is called Makruh Tanzihi .For example delaying the Asr (afternoon prayer) deliberately and praying it while sun is setting is makruh tahrimi. Wiping the nose with right hand is Makruh Tanzihi . As a general rule, not doing something that is wajib is makruh tahrimi; not doing something that is makruh tahrimi is also wajib. Not doing sunnahs and mustahabbs (recommended) is Makruh Tanzihi; not doing things that are Makruh Tanzihi is sunnah or mustahabb .
