They say Islam is rough & tough on people,
Because everything seems not permissible.
No freedom, no life, and no enjoyment,
It’s like living in the remote mountain.
I say, relax you’re misinformed my friend.
Islam is easy and can remove your burden.
In the Qur’an Allah mentions in explicit verse,
Surah Al Baqarah, “Allah intends for you ease”
And prophet Muhammad peace be upon him said,
In sahih Bukhari, “Religion (Islam) is very easy”
Talking about permissibility & prohibition,
Just like any sciences Islam has principle.
Let’s say object in the room for example,
All you have to do is follow instruction.
Prohibition is don’t move object just leave it,
You see, no time & energy exerted & wasted.
Permissibility is move object if you can,
Capability vs object is simply conditional.
In practice, if you drink alcohol, steal or kill.
You have spent resources & effort but gain sin.
If you only leave & do none those evil doing,
You would have light & easy kind of feeling.
And if ALLAH commands us to do something,
For sure certain condition exception is there.
If you can’t pray standing with valid reason,
Then pray sitting or in bed while lying down.
Some argue why in Islam everything is haram?
This is a big wrong question out of ignorance.
Fyi, by default since the beginning with Adam,
Of all the many things only one tree is haram.
Just like out there of all the many beverages,
Haram is only handful like poisonous & alcoholic.
Ignorance is blessing but only in random time,
Uneducated person is frowned upon all the time.
Ignorance portrays Islam as backward rough & tough,
Knowledge in Islam makes it easy to navigate life.
