What is Fasiq?

what is fasiq

Fasiq is people who doing al fisq. The scholars of Islam explain:

الفسق في الاصطلاح: العصيان وترك أمر الله تعالى، والخروج عن طاعته، وعن طريق الحق

al fisq means disobey to Allah and leaving the command of Allah, out of obedience manner and the right path” [Mausu’ah Aqadia Dorar Saniyya].

So, fasiq is anyone who perform any matters that contrary to Islamic teachings. Including kufr, shirk, bid’ah (innovation in religion) and impety.

Allah ﷻ says,

إِنَّهُمْ كَفَرُواْ بِاللّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ وَمَاتُواْ وَهُمْ فَاسِقُونَ 

“Verily, they disbelieve to Allah and His messenger, and they died when they are fasiq” [at-Taubah: 84].

Fasiq in this ayah refers to people who doing kufr or shirk.

Allah ﷻ says,

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِن جَاءَكُمْ فَاسِقٌ بِنَبَإٍ فَتَبَيَّنُوا أَن تُصِيبُوا قَوْمًا بِجَهَالَةٍ فَتُصْبِحُوا عَلَىٰ مَا فَعَلْتُمْ نَادِمِينَ

“O you who have believed, if a Fasiq comes to you with any news, verify it, lest you should harm people in ignorance, and afterwards you become regretful for what you have done” [al-Hujurat 49:6].

Fasiq in this ayah refers to people who doing any impiety in general.
