Q 1: What is
meant by the phrase (Din 'religion' is easiness)?
All the beliefs and rulings that Allah ordains for His slaves and commands them to stick to do not entail any harm. Rather, they are all within the limits of peoples' ability. Allah (Exalted be He) says,
So keep your duty to Allâh and fear Him as much as you can
Moreover, it is authentically reported that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said,
When I command you to do anything, do of it as much as you possibly can.
A manifestation of the easiness of the Din is that Allah gives us Rukhsahs (concessions) to avoid hardship such as not to observe Sawm (Fast) while on a travel or when a person is sick, to pray sitting down in cases of inability to stand up or lying down on one's side if the person is unable to sit down, etc.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
