Between Hardship and Ease: Imam al-Qarafi Drops Mad Science

by Imam al-Qarafi | Translated by Suhaib Webb

“When you come upon a question with two opinions, one making things easy and the other difficult, you must not issue verdicts to the masses with what is difficult, or to the specialized (scholars and people known for their worship and piety) or the rulers with what is easy. Doing so is a sin in religion, hypocrisy and a sign that the heart is void of Allah’s magnificent glory.”

Quoted by al-Hattab al-Maliki

Mawaib al-Jalil vol. 1 pg. 32
