So why do you BLAMED on MUSLIMS ? muslims are PEACE maker, Peacefull Nathon.
Extremism is a basic need to follow the Religion.
Allah, subhanahu wata'aala, is
the creator of mankind and
therefore knows his nature
more intricately than mankind
himself. Allah,
subhanahu wata'aala, has therefore chosen for us a
religion best suited to
the nature of mankind, a
religion that goes neither to
the extremes of hardship nor
of laxity, but instead provides a middle path; in other words, a
religion of ease. Allah,
subhanahu wata'aala, said;
"Allah intends for you ease, and
does not want to make things
difficult for you" [2:185]; and "Allah does not want to place
you in difficulty" [5:6].
Such easiness is well explained
in the hadeeth reported by Abu
radiya Allahu 'anhu, that the Prophet, salla Allaahu 'alaihe
wasallam, said, "Religion is easy..." [Bukhari], he also said;
"The best of your religion, is
the easiest." [Ahmad]
The easiness of this religion was
put into practise by the best
of humanity, the one who came to deliver the message, as
Allah, subhanahu wata'aala,
"Verily there has come unto you
a Messenger from amongst
yourselves, it grieves him that you should suffer any difficulty,
he is anxious for you, for the
believers he is full of pity and
merciful" [10:128]
This understanding is clarified in
a hadeeth in which the Prophet, salla Allaahu 'alaihe wasallam,
said; "... Allah did not send me
to be harsh, or cause harm,
but He sent me to teach and
make things easy" [Muslim].
This understanding is further implemented by the mercy sent
to mankind, Muhammed, salla Allaahu 'alaihe wasallam, in the hadeeth reported by his noble and pure
wife, 'Aishah, radiya Allahu 'anhu,
who said; "Whenever
the Prophet, salla Allaahu
'alaihe wasallam, has a choice
between two matters, he would choose the easiest, unless
it is sinful (act)" [Bukhari].
Many hadeeths have been
reported on the matter of
easiness: "Allah likes for this
nation ease and hates for it hardship and
adversity." [Tabaraani].
"We have been given a
privilege over other
nations... .we have been
given verses that no one else has been given, the last two
verses of Surah Baqarah
(chapter 2)"Our Lord! Punish us
not if we forget or fall
into error. Our Lord! Lay not
on us a burden greater than we have strength to bear"
After each statement, Allah
responded by saying, "I did, I
did, I
did"" [Muslim].
To further emphasise this understanding to his
companions, when once
a Bedouin stood up and
started urinating in the mosque,
the people caught him; but he,
salla Allaahu 'alaihe wasallam, ordered them to leave him
and to pour a bucket or a
tumbler of water over the
place where he had urinated.
The Prophet, salla Allaahu 'alaihe
wasallam, then said, "You have been sent to make things
easy and not to make them
difficult" [Bukhari].
An example that illustrates this
point is Salah, an act so
important and vital to Islam that the Prophet, salla Allaahu
'alaihe wasallam, said; "Between
a person and disbelief is
discarding prayer" [Muslim]. He
also warned against leaving
salah, even at the time of his death, in his very last breaths
before departing from this
Yet in this worship Allah has
also prescribed easiness. At
first, the number of prayers was fifty in number, but they
were reduced several
times until they were five.
Then it was proclaimed 'O
Muhammad, the order is
not changed. These five are (equal in reward) to
fifty' [Tirmidhi].
Causes of hardship
If Islam is a religion of ease,
why do we find many Muslims
not practising it? Why do we find them doing very little of
what they ought to be
doing, and why do even those
who practise their religion
sometimes find it difficult?
There are reasons why the practice of Islam can becomes
1) Lack of piety
When we speak about Islam
being easy we are, in reality,
speaking about the easiness of its acts of
worship and morals. Religion by
means commitment and an
obligation to a master.
Therefore, being a religious person means to be
always aware that we are
slaves to a master, Allah,
subhanahu wata'aala. From
here we see the mistake of
those who want 'ease' to mean 'doing
nothing', just saying "I am a
Muslim", committing themselves
to nothing. It is obvious that
they want it to be easy, but
what exactly do they want? They want an easy life, a life
without any religious
practices. The idle belief of
'existing only to live' has long
ago been negated by Allah,
subhanahu wata'aala. He said: "Do you think you have been
created for nothing and that
you will not be resurrected
and brought back to Allah
again!" [23:115]. He also
said: "Thinks man that he is left aimless?" [75:86].
Islam is easy to practice; but
those who do not understand
the reasons behind their
existence, who do not
understand the concepts of religion, but meanwhile are
striving to secure themselves in
this life; then surely they will
find its practices difficult. The
easiness of Islam is felt in all of
its commandments. Some people find this or that commandment
hard to follow but this does not
mean that the command is in
itself hard; often it is the
person who is the cause.
For example Salah, it is an easy act of worship, as Allah,
subhanahu wata'aala, has made
"And seek help in patience and
prayer and truly it is (prayer)
extremely heavy and hard except for Al-Khashi'un (i.e. true
submitting)" [2;45].
Prayer is an easy act of
worship except, of course, for
those who do not truly submit
to their Lord; they will find it toilsome.
Why do they find it so? The
answer is that it is not the
prayer that is difficult, but it
is the hearts of these people
which have changed from good to bad, as Allah, subhanahu
wata'aala, mentioned:
"Verily, the hypocrites seek to
deceive Allah, but it is He Who
deceives them. And when they
stand up to pray, they stand with laziness ..."
[4;142]; in another verse He
subhanahu wata'aala, said; "And
that they came not to prayer
except in a lazy state ..." [9;54].
2) Ignorance The rules of Islam did not come
as mere do's and don'ts. Each
obligation has wisdom and
motivation behind it. It should
make no difference to us
if the wisdom for that particular practice is known or
not, because if it is not known
to us today, then if Allah wills,
He will reveal it to
future generations. What is
primarily expected from us is to fully submit and
implement every command.
For example, the giving of
charity, which apparently
decreases the wealth of the
giver. Islam did not say "Pay charity, pay charity", as this
would not motivate people and
therefore make it difficult to
act upon. Instead
Allah says; "Would you not like
to give a loan to your Lord, and this loan will be paid back
to you multiplied and you will be
rewarded for it." [2:245]
The Prophet, salla Allaahu
'alaihe wasallam, said; "Verily,
wealth does not decrease because of charity." [Muslim]
It seems Muslims often ask why
this act or matter is Halaal or
Haraam. With such an attitude
they will never achieve their
goal, because behind each injunction there is an aspect of
wisdom. Without understanding
this, practising Islam becomes a
heavy burden. With strong
belief, we do not even have to
ask whether this or that is halaal or Haraam, but rather
if it pleases Allah. Therefore we
should take the rules seeking
the pleasure of Allah
subhanahu wata'aala,. If pleasing
Allah subhanahu wata'aala, is, always, our aim, then
undoubtedly the practice of
religion becomes easy, no
matter what apparent
hardships we may encounter.
3) Inappropriate environment It is true that sometimes we
find it difficult to practise the
religion, even those who are
committed to it! The reason
behind this is that we are
practising our religion in an non-religious environment. Islam
is not meant to be practised
while being immersed in a Kufr
(disbelieving) society. Its practice
will indeed be difficult in such
an environment. Therefore, the difficulty cannot be blamed
upon Islam as a religion, but
rather on the circumstances of
the society.
Returning to our example of
prayer, we see that prayer by itself is easy, but if you have
to stand alone to pray amongst
non-Muslims, all of
them watching you, it will
suddenly become difficult. The
obvious conclusion is that the prayer in itself is not difficult,
but the environment has
made it difficult. Another
example is that of a woman
who wears hijaab and is happy
to cover herself. If this were an Islamic society, it would have
been difficult for
her not to be covered, or for
a man not to respond to the
call to prayer and pray in a
mosque. Thus difficulty is not the nature of our religion, but
we are trying ...
