Q338 :Mahrook - the basic definition of

A338 : That which is mahrook is an action which can be described as reprehensible or detestable. If a person resists temptation to do something of this sort, he earns a reward. Its commission, however, is not punishable but a person may be reproached for it. Tanzihi and tahrimi are two words to qualify what is reprehensible. The latter denotes a very strong objection to it. When something reprehensible is described as tanzihi, this description means that a good Muslim should avoid it.
