The present paper studies and critiques the tendency of people to some recommended and getting away from the obligatory. Although the recommended edicts are important in Islam and there are many results and awards promised for them, but sometimes a recommended edict becomes so important for some people that replaces the obligatory ones. Furthermore, some so called religious practices are done with profusion, extravagance and luxuriousness contrary to the commands of Allah and the prophet, while many of the religious researchers and preachers do not pay attention to this kind of issue as they should.
The present paper has studied the definition of obligatory (Wajib), the difference between obligatory and necessary, the definition of recommended (Mustahab), the types of obligatory, the importance of obligatory and recommended edicts in Islam and the causes of people's tendency to some of the Recommended edicts and getting away from the obligatory ones, and has propounded the issue as a fundamental problem in the Islamic societies.
