Introduction

The religion Allah chose for people, which best suits their temperament, is the religion of Islam. Allah has made His religion very easy for people to live by. Religious morality lifts all the burdens, and things that are limiting and restricting and that cause people hardship. It informs people that they should always seek Allah's approval, lean towards Him, and resign themselves to the destiny that He has determined for them, for He is infinitely compassionate, kind and forgiving; He creates everything with a purpose for righteous people; He is the possessor of all power.

To trust and befriend Allah, Who is the possessor of all creatures and controller of all the events that take place, means to put an end to the fears, worries, troubles, and hardships in a human being's life. For one who lives according to the morality of Qur'an, what is most important is the ease and beauty religion provides him. Moreover, Allah has made all His commands and decrees commensurate with people's dispositions and no hardship will ensue from any of them.

Allah, in the Qur'an, declares that religious morality is easy and that He will make things easier for those who follow their religion:

We will ease you to the Easy Way. (Surah A'la: 8)

… He has selected you and not placed any constraint upon you in the observance of your religion—the religion of your forefather Abraham… (Surat al-Hajj: 78)

Our Prophet (saas), in the light of these verses, invites us in following our religion to declare: "Religion is easiness." (Sahih Bukhari)

The practices and beliefs that people see as hardships have been added to religion and passed on as if they were a part of the real religion by polytheists or by people who deny religion and try to distance others from religion. Yet others have adopted an ostentatious manner in their observance of religion, thinking that if they perform harder things to show themselves as more pious, that will be more generally acceptable. However, our Prophet (saas) has always ordered Muslims around him to make religion "easier." As a result, righteous Muslims should obey this command and should not suffer the consequences of representing easy things as hard. One of our Prophet's (saas) sayings on this matter is as follows:

Our Prophet (saas), in the light of these verses, invites us in following our religion to declare: "Religion is easiness." (Sahih Bukhari)

In this book, in accordance with the advice of our Prophet (saas), we are reminded of how easy it is to live Allah's religion. Furthermore, it is explained that the religion of Islam encourages the lifestyle most suitable to a person's temperament, comfort, and happiness: a life lead by the morals of the Qur'an is the best possible life a person can live.
