Difference Of Opinion

You hold that positive difference of opinion in religious views is always welcomed. But out of many of the scholars somebody has to be closer to the factual teaching. We have to decide and follow that. Cannot we name one such person whose views are closest to the Qur’an? We know that the points of difference in worship rituals are great. We may consider one viewpoint correct and the rivals as incorrect. The first pronounced difference of opinion and judgment of Muslim history surfaced between Hazrat Aisha and Hazrat Ali. Though the intentions of both were right yet an historian may not agree that both were right?

The Only True Religion

I was explaining Islam to a non-Muslim friend. He came up with a couple of questions that actually confused me as well. I have been told since I was a kid that Islam is one true religion and everything else is a lie. How can I be sure that its not a man-made religion nauzubillah and it really is the truth? I have gone through the embryology example. Anything else that could prove the divine presence in holy Quran. In durood-e-ibrahimi there is an expression aal-e Ibrahim. Does it signify the family of Hazrat Muhammed (sws) or all the ummah? Can you please refer a quote from Quran itself to prove that its all ummah. If not, why is the family of the Holy Prophet (sws) getting special treatment when Allah has already said that the only differentiator in front of Him is 'taqwa'?

Is It Hard To Follow The Religion?

We know striving in the path of Allah is a source of reward. For example; it is hard to offer the fajr prayer or wear hijab etc. We must therefore strive to work hard. Facing the hardship and remaining steadfast on deen is a basic part of Muslims life. Narrated Abu Qatada bin Rib'i Al-Ansari: A funeral procession passed by Allah's Apostle who said: Relieved or relieving?

The people asked: O Allah's Apostle! What is relieved and relieving?
He said: A believer is relieved (by death) from the troubles and hardships of the world and leaves for the Mercy of Allah.
The hadith indicates that the life of a believer is full of hardship and as we know there are other ahadith that also indicate this. Then what is the meaning of verse: And He has not laid upon you in religion any hardship? (22:78)

Why does the verse say in the religion there is no hardship? Yet we know from our life that there are a lot of difficulties and hardships that we face due to being Muslims. The hadith also explains that there are hardships. Please comment on the apparent contradiction.
