Are We Sinful If We Miss Sunna Prayers?

Hanafi Fiqh

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani


Are we sinful if we miss sunna prayers?

While we are sinful for neglecting obligatory prayers (Fard or Wajib), missing the sunna prayers does not entail sinfulness. However, by missing the Sunna prayers, we miss out on the rewards associated with them.
