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