ISLAM IS SIMPLE: Islam is easy to understand

Islam is easy to understand

The teachings of Islam are very simple and satisfying to the mind. The concepts behind its teachings are logical, scientific and based on clear evidence.
Allah says:
Say (O Muhammad): "This is my way (religion); I invite unto Allah on clear signs…". 12:108
We are not asked to believe in things that do not make sense. In Islam, there are no mysteries, no room for doubt.
Allah says:
“This is the Book (the Qur'an) whereof there is no doubt; a guidance to those who believe.”
(Al-Baqarah 2:2)

This is the uniqueness of Islam. Faith in Islam is not blind.

Faith and our belief in Allah, the truth of Islam, Prophet Muhammad, the al-Quran and the like is not given blindly. All of this can be proven with evidence that is clear, convincing and easy to understand. This is explained more thoroughly in the coming discussion.

ISLAM IS SIMPLE: Introduction

Islam is a simple religion. Allah says in the al-Quran:
“…(Allah) has not laid upon you in religion any hardship..”
(Al-Hajj 22:78)

“Allah intends for you ease, and He does not want to make things difficult for you."
(Al-Baqarah 2:185)

The same thing is said by Prophet Muhammad S.A.W:

“Permudahkan, jangan kamu susahkan.”
(Bukhari, Muslim)

“Sesungguhnya kamu semua diutuskan untuk memudahkan, dan kamu semua tidak diutuskan untuk menyusahkan.” (Bukhari)

The changes that need to be done after embracing Islam are only a few:

1. Belief. Nobody knows our faith other than Allah and ourselves.
2. A few physical activities such as solat, fasting, improving way of life, etc.

Allah Knows

Allah Knows

When you feel all alone in this world
And there’s nobody to count your tears
Just remember, no matter where you are
Allah knows
Allah knows

When you carrying a monster load
And you wonder how far you can go
With every step on that road that you take
Allah knows
Allah knows

No matter what, inside or out
There’s one thing of which there’s no doubt
Allah knows
Allah knows
And whatever lies in the heavens and the earth
Every star in this whole universe
Allah knows
Allah knows

When you find that special someone
Feel your whole life has barely begun
You can walk on the moon, shout it to everyone
Allah knows
Allah knows

When you gaze with love in your eyes
Catch a glimpse of paradise
And you see your child take the first breath of life
Allah knows
Allah knows

When you lose someone close to your heart
See your whole world fall apart
And you try to go on but it seems so hard
Allah knows
Allah knows

You see we all have a path to choose
Through the valleys and hills we go
With the ups and the downs, never fret never frown
Allah knows
Allah knows

Every grain of sand,
In every desert land, He knows.
Every shade of palm,
Every closed hand, He knows.
Every sparkling tear,
On every eyelash, He knows.
Every thought I have,
And every word I share, He knows.
Allah knows.
