Allah says in Surah Al Mo’menoon. Verse # 78. “He has chosen you and has (yet) not laid upon you in religion any hardship”. At another place in Surah Al Arraf Verse # 199 Prophet was instructed to “Accept what people can do easily” which means he should not be expecting too strict a compliance in religious matters. The Prophet then said (Hadith) “ I have been commanded by Allah to accept common or unexceptional obedience from people in their worship and behavior—I, therefore, have decided to do the same as long as I am in their company”
Then there is a very brief Hadith of the Prophet. “Ad Din Yusr” which is regarding religious obligations and Sharia and said – “He is leaving with us an easy and practicable law; which is neither cumbersome not susceptible to going astray” Allah also says in verse 78 “strive towards me with efforts which is my due” and in return you will be the owners of the Paradise forever. The point to ponder is,
“It is His due anyway” and we can comply without any hardship. Then why Not!

How Scholars view Sharia’a?

June 11, 2017
 (First published on FB).

Although It is an anathema mainly for most Non-Muslims and few modernist, secularist Muslims but ironically they forget that it is not Muslims exclusive. Moses had his Shari’a and so did many other Prophets. Successful Propaganda, labeling it antiquated, draconian and too Harsh is the reason.
Here is, however, how the Muslim scholars see and categorize it.
“God made this Blessed righteous Shari’a accommodating and convenient and thus won the hearts of human beings and invoked in them love and respect for the law. Had they had to act against convenience they could not have honestly fulfilled their obligations”
ABU ISHAQ AL-SHITABI (A Muslim religious Scholar)
“The Shari’a is all Justice, Kindness, Common Good and Wisdom. Any rule that departs from Justice to injustice…..or departs from common good (maslaha) to harm (mafsada) ….is not part of Shari’a even if it is arrived at by literal interpretation”
IBN QAYYIM.(A Muslim religious Scholar)
“Take to forbearance, and bid the Fair and ignore the ignorant”
Qura’an (7:199)
Prophet was asked by God to “accept what people can do easily” not demanding a high standard of deeds.
Holy Prophet (PBUH) has referred to this aspect of sharia’a saying:-
“Ad Dino Yusrun”…..I am leaving among them an easy and practicable law; which is neither cumbersome nor susceptible to going astray
