Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatu 30 verses 30 days de phife. Today we're looking at verse number 28 from Surah Nisa, Allah subhana wa tada says that
bonobo gene, you read in law,
de fer. Allah says Allah wishes to make your lives easier. Allah wishes to make things easy for you. And man has been created of weakness.
You see, a lot of times we hear people saying, hey, Islam is so difficult, everything is hard on Islam is so difficult. Every time I try to do something, it becomes my life becomes harder, and so on and so forth. There is this rule, there's that rule, there's this prohibition and there's that prohibition. But to the contrary, Allah subhana wa tada is telling you that I actually want to make your lives easier. I don't want to make your lives difficult. And that's why one of the foundational principles that we have within our religion is that Allah Masha Allah to the God with a seed whenever there is some sort of hardship that is not bearable by normal human standards that Allah
subhana wa, tada ends up making that hardship into ease.
So Allah wants to make our lives easier. I mean, if we really ponder the rulings of Islam, yes, there are rulings in Islam. Islam has belief and it also has rulings. But those rulings are rulings which are completely practical. You see, Allah subhanaw taala has prescribed for you and I to make will do before we go and pray. But some of us may have skin problems that we're not able to make withdrawals, some of us may not have water at times, depending on the circumstance in the situation that we're in. So then Allah subhana wa, tada also legislated the idea of dry ablution, or thermal. Similarly, sometimes as you're traveling, and those that travel regularly and I have lived a life in
which I traveled regularly, at some point in my life, at least,
we know that it's very difficult to catch prayer on time, every single time. So because of that Allah has legislated in law, that if it's hard for you to pray on time, during your travels, combined go home with us, or, or vice versa, and combine it with Russia, or vice versa. So you can combine these two prayers with with each other. And that makes it very, very flexible. And that makes the concept of praying on time, very flexible, because Allah has given you this very large period of time to pray and combine two prayers and another very large period of time to pray and combine the other two papers and normally at fudger time people are not traveling or they're not
really that busy anyways. So it's that one moment that you really have to work hard to catch. And there you have it, all of your daily prayers are done. If you if it's hard for you to stand up, maybe you have a knee injury and ankle injury, maybe you can't stand maybe someone has crutches whatever the case may be, there's some sort of difficulty because of what you can stand. Well, the prophet SAW Selim told us in the Hadees Sunday about him and failed them to South Africa isn't failing them, test them. If you can pray and pray standing and most of us can be hamdulillah. And if you can't, then sit down and pray and if you can't, then do it on your side, or you lie down and do
it on your side. If you're sick temporarily, and you can't fast temporarily, then don't fast even though Yes, we're in the month of Ramadan. But if you're sick, and you're unable to, it's too hard for you to to bear the fast with the sickness you need some time doctors are telling you that you need to get off of your fasting to be able to recover faster, Okay, stop, you're fasting for a few days. And then those fasts that you've missed outside of Ramadan, you can make them up and that is another concession from Allah subhana wa Tada. And that is another ease from Allah subhana wa Tada. If you're permanently sick, and you could never ever fast for the rest of your life. Well, then
Allah subhanho wa Taala will not make your life difficult by forcing you and compelling you in too fast, or expecting that of you rather, you can go ahead and not fast and instead expiate from those fasts, because of which you the ones that you're not able to make at all because of the sickness that you have, because of the hardship that you're going through. If you're physically ill, in a way where you cannot travel, and there's no possibility of you becoming recovered from the sickness as well. Well, it's
normally obligatory on people to make hygienic Well, in this case, in this circumstance, and the person that is so ill, and they're not going to be able to recover from this illness that they can delegate someone else to make their Hajj on their behalf. And those are the worships and the primary acts of worship and Allah subhana wa tada has placed ease in all of them. You don't have money. You don't have to give the cat there is no obligatory charity on you. A lot.
wants to make your lives easier. He doesn't want to make your life difficult. There are rules and obligations and legislations within Islam. But the circumstantial positions that people may be in Allah has placed the right rule for each circumstance. So the lives of the slaves of Allah are never hard. And on top of that, all of this is going to be leading to eternal bliss. The more you try to strive in the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala and sacrifices you make, then there will be ease for you on the day of judgment and beyond the Day of Judgment for eternity. So this is all leading to eternal bliss and eternal ease. I asked Allah subhanaw taala to make your lives easier make my lives
easy life easy allama amin and I asked Allah subhana wa tada to allow us to recognize the concessions and appreciate the concessions that allies placed within our religion for us to make our lives easier and I asked Allah subhana wa tada to allow us to also recognize the fruits of the obligations that Allah has given to us within this religion as well. Just like on the low hanging fruit listening with something Allahu Allah say he did on Ramadan. He will be here Jemaine
