Difference between Fard, Wajib and Sunnah

|Q.) What is the difference between Fard, wajib and Sunnat Mua'kadah? [Aziz]|
A.) Fardh is compulsory. A person who denies or rejects a Fardh will become a Kaafir.
wajib is also something necessary, although of a slightly lesser degree than Fardh. The person who denies this will not become a Kaafir, but will be a Faasiq (flagrant sinner).
Sunnat-e-Muakkadah are those actions of Nabi which were done regularly. A person who leaves out such an act will be sinning.
And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
