Duty

Duty-التكليف

1. One who imposes upon you a duty that you are unable to bear has indeed asked you to disobey him.

1ـ مَنْ كَلَّفَكَ ما لاتُطيقُ فَقَدْ أفْتاكَ في عِصْيانِهِ.

2. Affectation is from the morals of the hypocrites.

2ـ اَلتَّكَلُّفُ مِنْ أخْلاقِ المُنافِقينَ.

3. Verily Allah, the Glorified, commanded His servants by choice and forbade them by warning. He made duties easy and did not impose difficult duties. For a little He gave plenty. He is not disobeyed out of defeat nor is He obeyed by force. He did not send prophets for sport, nor did He reveal the Book to the creation for amusement. He did not create the Heavens and the earth in vain: That is a conjecture of the faithless. So woe to the faithless for the Fire.1

3ـ إنَّ اللّهَ سُبْحانَهُ أمَرَ عِبادَهُ تَخْييراً، وَنَهاهُمْ تَحْذيراً، وكَلَّفَ يَسيراً، ولَمْ يُكَلِّفْ عَسيراً، وأعْطَى عَلىَ القَليلِ كَثيراً، ولَمْ يُعْصَ مَغْلُوباً، ولَمْ يُطَعْ مُكْرَهاً،وَ لَمْ يُرْسِلِ الأنْبِياءَ لَعِباً، ولَمْ يُنْزِلِ الكِتابَ عَبَثاً، وما خَلَقَ السَّماواتِ والأرْضَ وما بَيْنَهُما باطِلاً، ذلِكَ ظَنُّ الَّذينَ كَفَرُوا فَوَيْلٌ لِلَّذينَ كَفَرُوا مِنَ النّارِِ.
