Sunnah Ghair Muakkadah

These are the sunnahs that our Prophet (p.b.u.h.) sometimes performed and sometimes abandoned. To perform the sunnahs in this category brings one thawabs (rewards of good deeds). A person who leaves this sunnah is not punished or blamed. (Sayyid Sharif al-Jurjani, at-Ta`rifat, Beirut 1403/1983, p. 122; Ibn Nujaym, al-Bahru`r-Raiq, Cairo 1311, I, 17-18) The first sunnahs of Asr (afternoon ) and Isha (night) prayers are sunnah ghair muakkadah. Sunnah Zawaids, like our prophet‘s way of wearing his clothes and shoes, sitting, standing up, combing his hair, in other words, his attitudes and behaviors are in this category of sunnah. (Ibn Abidin, Raddul-Mukhtar, Cairo 1272-1324, I, 321)
