AL-MUYASSIR - He Who Makes His Servant's Path Easier in Goodness and Wickedness

Harun Yahya
He Who Places No Unbearable Burden

Allah desires ease for you ; He does not desire difficulty for you. You should complete the number of days and proclaim Allah's greatness for the guidance He has given you, so that hopefully you will be thankful. (Surat al-Baqara, 2:185)

Allah always directs us toward ease. At the base of Islam, the religion with which He is pleased, always lies this ease. The Qur'an reveals this profound truth, as follows:

Strive for Allah with the effort due to Him. He has selected you and has not placed any constraint upon you in religion—the religion of your forefather Ibrahim... (Surat al-Hajj, 22:78)

Allah has made the Qur'an easy for those who are willing to take heed, and its commands make human life easy. For instance, He does not hold the blind, the lame, or the sick responsible, and shows ways that lessen His servants' burden during times of hardship and travel. He also states that He will forgive people, whatever their sins may be, provided that they repent sincerely. One verse reads:

We have made the Qur'an easy to remember. But is there any rememberer there? (Surat al-Qamar, 54:17)

Meanwhile, Allah calls attention to the fact that believers can easily attain all forms of success:

We will ease you to the Easy Way. (Surat al-A‘la, 87:8)

Every ease that we feel or see is from Allah, for they all come from His glory. He is the Most Compassionate of the compassionate, and He does not desire difficulty for His servants:

Allah desires to make things lighter for you. Man was created weak. (Surat an-Nisa', 4:28)

Allah knows what we can and cannot do, and thus does not desire any difficulty for us. This is also related in “Allah desires ease for you; He does not desire difficulty for you” (Surat al-Baqara, 2:185). Even under the severest conditions, He makes our tasks easy and shows us a way out. Allah reminds His servants of this blessings in the following verses:

Did We not expand your breast for you and remove your load from you, which weighed down your back? Did We not raise your renown high? For truly with hardship comes ease; truly with hardship comes ease. (Surat al-Inshirah, 94:1-6)

Allah makes the ways of attaining His good pleasure and mercy easy for believers. On the other hand, He informs us that He will pave the way to difficulty for unbelievers:

But as for him who is stingy, self-satisfied, and denies the Good, We will pave his way to difficulty. (Surat al-Layl, 92:8-10)
