3.2.4 Times in which Prayer is Makruh

sunriseWe say these are the times in which prayer is makruh, but really, it is haram to pray at these time. This type of makruh is known as “makruh tahrimi” (kind of like saying makruh to the point of being haram).

Review: The Meaning of Makruh and Haram

Makruh: A makruh act is one that Allah does not like, so it better not to do it. If you do it, you will not be sinful; if you do not do it, you will get reward. Can you name some makruh acts?

Haram: A haram act is one you must never do. If you do it, you will be sinful; if you do not do it, you will get reward from Allah and Allah will love you. Can you name some haram acts?

Makruh tahrimi is similar to haram in that one can be sinful for doing the act.
