THE FACILITATOR OF EASE FOR PEOPLE
Prophet Muhammad once declared: “Indeed, God did not send me to be harsh or cause harm; He sent me to teach and make things easy!”¹ It is related by the Companions that the Prophet used to lighten people’s burden and remove difficulties from them. If he was given two options that were good, he would always choose the easier of the two options.² This facilitation was to make life easier for people and to avoid undue hardships and difficulties.
