The Characteristic of Ease: The Central Feature of the Shari'ah

  • The message of our Prophet (s.a.w) is for all humankind. It takes into account the various backgrounds and the different aspects of individuals from every level of society, including those who are less able, those who are weak, and those who are in need.

 

  • The Shari'ah provides flexibility for those who are in need of that flexibility. This flexibility is not something peculiar, nor something that lies outside of the Shari'ah. In fact, it is part of the Shari'ah, as taught by Rasulullah (s.a.w) to Mu'az ibn Jabal (r.a).
