Title: I want to ask that what is the difference in Offering the Mo-akada and Non-Moakada Sunnah in Prayers ?

Question

I want to ask that what is the difference in Offering the Mo-akada and Non-Moakada Sunnah in Prayers ?

Answer

In the name of Allāh, Most Gracious, Most Merciful


Assalāmu ῾alaykum wa Rahmatullāhi Wabarakātuh

 

There is no difference between Sunnah Muakkada and Sunnah Ghair- Muakkada (non-Muakkada) in its form and method of offering.  The only difference is in its Sharī status, which is as follows:

Sunnah Muakkada Salāt:  Those Salāt, which are close to Wājib and incurs sin if omitted continuously without a valid Sharī excuse. It literally translates as “emphasized Sunnah`s”

Sunnah Ghair-Muakkada Salāt- Those Salāt which if omitted will not incur a sin. it literally translates as “not emphasized Sunnah`s”

(Raddul Muhtār, Pg. 12 Vol. 2 HM Saīd)[1]
(Raddul Muhtār, Pg.
103, Vol. 1 HM Saīd)[2]

However, we should not leave out the Sunnah Ghair-Muakkada merely for the fact that Nabī (Sallāllāhu alahiwasalam) did not lay much emphasis upon it.

 

And Allāh Ta῾āla Knows Best
Wassalāmu ῾alaykum
