57. Deen (Islam) is Easy


Recommended Posts

Pearls of Wisdom: No.57

“Food for the Soul”



Allah, The Most Exalted, says:

“Allah intends for you ease, and He does not want to make things difficult for you.” (Quran:2:185)

The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) is reported to have said; 

“Verily this religion is ease; and none make this religion difficult except that it overwhelms them.”  (Hadith Bukhari)


Note:  Islam is a simple religion and not burdensome. However, that Islam is easy and not ‘difficult’ is not to imply that Muslims will not face 'hardship'. It implies that the practicing of Islam is quite easy and simple.

None should go to extremes in religious matters and forsake the easy approach as it may become too taxing and the possibility that the person may abandon the act in totality. It does not mean that we should not seek to be more perfect in our worship, for that is something praiseworthy. Rather what is discouraged is going to such extremes in doing voluntary acts that over exertion overtakes a person so that eventually he or she  is unable to cope with even the simplest of tasks.

In Deen, whatever has been ordained is always practical and beneficial.

“Islam is really simple, but often due to our ignorance we insist on making it complicated.”
