Wajib

The Oxford Dictionary of Islam What is This? Covers the religious, political, and social spheres of global Islam in the modern world

    Wajib

    In Islamic jurisprudence, an obligatory act, with failure to perform it being sinful. Wajib acts can be obligatory on every individual (fard al-ayn), such as prayer, or on the entire community (fard al-kifayah), such as burying the dead. In the latter case, if some members perform the act, the obligation on the rest of the community is removed.
