Making things easier is one of the lofty ideals of the religion of Islam. It is the basis for all the rituals that are made obligatory for the faithful. Ease is the opposite of hardship as the Holy Qur’an puts it. “Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship.”
The Qur’anic verse related to fasting gives exemption for the sick and those who are traveling from observing fasting on the condition that they have to make it up later. Such concessions are applied to other obligatory rituals as well.
‘No condition in Islam’
There is no longer any justification for tightening and hardening religious matters for people on an issue that did not exist 30 years ago in some parts of the Kingdom when women did not use abayas.
