    Re: Islam - Hard Way or Easy Way? - A Discussion

    Salam Sis,

    It is indeed easy with the right knowledge & open mindedness. When we dont deny that ISLAM is nothing but good for ourselves.

    "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].

    that the Prophet (pbuh), said, "Religion is easy..." [Bukhari], he also said; "The best of your religion, is the easiest." [Ahmad]

    I think it's a simple religion to learn, but hard to master. The concept is really very basic, and it is that simplicity that is the inherent beauty of it. Just one God. One. Nothing else. Add a few prophets in for good measure, and there you go, you have Islam.

    Now when you add in the prayers and all the other rules, yes, it can seem intimidating, but really it's very simple to accept.

    Salam brother, I agree with you
    Anyhow I didnt say its very EASY (i'll be hypocrite to say that lool)
    But I don't agree that something in ISLAM is hard when we truly submit ourselves to Allah... its not hard but we are lazy sometimes

    Well there's a lot that I still don't know, but I'm taking my time at learning it. I try to learn one new thing per day. If I can do that, I think I'll be OK.

    Re: Islam - Hard Way or Easy Way? - A Discussion



    In my opinion, the way of Islam is hard. Like steep. Going up the hill. Like you got to climb a big mountain. Roll up your sleeves. Get ready for heavy-duty work. Make huge sacrifices. Walk upon thorns. Not at all a bed of roses.

    But it gets harder the more and more your faith increases. The greater your iman, the greater will be your trials, the greater the hardships and difficulties to endure.

    Of course..... this means only one thing:

    The greater will be the reward.

    It is by virtue of tests, trials and hardships that Allah sorts out the good, better, best..... and bad, worse and worst.

    Alhamdulillahir rabbil al ameen!

    Re: Islam - Hard Way or Easy Way? - A Discussion

    Salaam,

    Some parts of Islam for me are not that difficult like fasting. When it comes to five daily prayers, I sometimes struggle because of other commitments. The most difficult aspects of Islam is not to commit sins which can occur very naturally like backbiting, jealousy, envy, anger and so on. To practice Islam means you need to maintain a certain standard throughout your life which is hard but very rewarding.

    Re: Islam - Hard Way or Easy Way? - A Discussion

    It honestly depends on the person. No doubt Islam (once mastered) is easy, but lets say a revert, who used to drink, smoke and had a very influential jahiliyaa life. For him to be a Muslim, he would have to let all that go, which is not going to be easy.

    Ofcourse Islam doesn't expect you to stop the wrong immediatly, overtime it expects you to stop doing the sin (as you get used to Islam and it's principles).

    Re: Islam - Hard Way or Easy Way? - A Discussion

    islam has much flexibilty.
    so it has both sides, eg... if u dont offer salat by standing, u can do it in sitting, u are not obliged to do haj zakat if u dont have sufficant money....if u had done mcuh bad, no problem allah swt is karim and very forgiving, esp for this umma.....
    so its one side..but on other, islam need sacrifice...allah swt ask that u should be "ansar" to his deen and u should not back step in this mission/cause/purpose... so 70 suhaba RA give live in uhad, 14 in badar, 70 in "baer'e mahonaa" .... face the montains of difficulty but they stand firm...
    but always remember, islam is blessing from allah swt and his greatest favor...otherwise if there is no islam, we spend, sacrifice, work hard but there will be no revard in ahraa in that case. eg in badar 70 from kuffar were killed..sacrifice their lives but no revard, but for muslims 70 of uhad, they will be a higest rank of janah forever.

    I think if I was made to implement Islam as I was raised from a very young age it would be much easier.

    Not necessarily. Look at me, for example. I was raised as a Christian and went to churches and Christian schools until I was in college. I eventually got sick and tired of hearing the same things over and over and grew tired of the hypocrisy that I saw everywhere. So you might be burnt out on Islam by now if you had heard it your whole life.

    Re: Islam - Hard Way or Easy Way? - A Discussion

    Well, I'm not Muslim yet, but I wanted to add something. I think that it is a very straight forward religion, but takes dedication. Also, on what Just a Guy said, not relating to Christianity but I know my boyfriend has struggled some with Islam even though he was raised in Muslim. Since I began studying though we've been able to see the areas that he either got in a bad habit at a young age (not praying on time, not being strict when fasting) or else did not learn the "right" way to do things. I find it interesting seeing how culture can shape and effect religions.

    Well if you insist my dear miss mysterious member X. But I'd like to keep it brief.

    Islam is not at all an easy religion to follow. There's jihad an nafs....

    There's jihad against shaytan......

    and more........

    This is done on a daily basis too. A constant, never-ending battle where one cannot afford to let down one's guard even for a moment.

    Considering what we are up against, following the way of Islam is hard.

    And because it is hard, we need to take it easy and not place too much burden upon oneself. One shouldn't take on more than one can handle.

    Being a Muslim is easy as pie.

    Being the best possible Muslim you can be is the most difficult thing there is.
