  1. Fard

    Farḍ or farīḍah is an Islamic term which denotes a religious duty commanded by Allah. The word is also used in Persian, Turkish, and Urdu in the same meaning. Fard or its synonym wājib is one of the five types of Ahkam into which Fiqh categorizes acts of every Muslim. The Hanafi Fiqh however makes a distinction between Wajib and Fard, the latter being obligatory and the former merely necessary. In Indonesian, wajib also means obligatory, since the word is derived from Arabic.
