Explanation of Makruh


Assalamu Alaikum Warahmathullahi Wabarakathuhu,

Dear respected Shiekh,

In the recent past I heard from various personnel that they say “There is no Makruh as such” there is only haram and halal.

Can you please explain this? It will be appreciated if can give the detailed explanation so I can show the people who spread false information and who are misguiding innocent ummah.

Jazakallahu Hairan.

wa `alaykum salam,

The Madhhab Imams studied categories of ibadats more precisely that we can even imagine. Imam Abu Hanifah, the greatest among them, was especially known for that. He introduced the terminology that you mentioned to help us be more precise in following what is fardh and avoiding what is haram.
