The object of this paper is to study invariant submanifolds 𝑀 of Sasakian manifolds 𝑀 admitting a semisymmetric nonmetric connection, and it is shown that M admits semisymmetric nonmetric connection. Further it is proved that the second fundamental forms 𝜎 and 𝜎 with respect to Levi-Civita connection and semi-symmetric nonmetric connection coincide. It is shown that if the second fundamental form 𝜎 is recurrent, 2-recurrent, generalized 2-recurrent, semiparallel, pseudoparallel, and Ricci-generalized pseudoparallel and M has parallel third fundamental form with respect to semisymmetric nonmetric connection, then M is totally geodesic with respect to Levi-Civita connection.
