The shari`ah is made easy for you

Ease and facilitation – these are two qualities of the Shari’ah that give comfort to the believer.

We have not sent down the Qur’an unto you [O’ Muhammad] to cause you distress. (Qur’an 20: 1)

And we shall make easy for you [O’ Muhammad] the easy way [i.e. the doing of righteous deeds].  (Qur’an 87: 8)

Allah burdens not a person beyond his scope.  (Qur’an 2: 286)

Allah puts no burden on any person beyond what He has given him. (Qur’an 65: 7)  

And He has not laid upon you in religion any hardship…   (Qur ‘an 22: 78)

He releases them from their heavy burdens [of Allah’s Covenant] and from the fetters [bindings] that were upon them.  (Qur ‘an 7. 157)

So verily, with the hardship, there is relief Verily, with the hardship, there is relief [i.e. there is one hardship with two relief’s, so one hardship cannot overcome two relief’s].   (Qur’an 94. 5-6)

Our Lord! Punish us not if we forget or fall into error, Our Lord! Lay not on us a burden like that which you did lay on those before us [Jews and Christians]; our lord. Put not on us a burden greater than we have strength to bear. Pardon us and grant us Forgiveness. Have mercy on us. You are our Maula [Patron, Supporter and Protector, etc.] and give us victory over the disbelieving people.  (Qur’an 2: 286)

The Prophet (Blessings and Peace be upon him) said:

“My nation will not be held accountable for mistakes, for forgetfulness, and for what they were forced to do (i.e. sins that were committed under duress).”

He (bpuh) also said:

“Verily, this religion is easy; and when one makes the religion too harsh, one will become overcome by it.”
