"Religion is very easy and whoever overburdens himself in his religion will not be able to continue in that way. So you should not be extremists, but try to be near to perfection and receive the good tidings that you will be rewarded."

- Prophet Muhammad

ARTICLES
No compulsion in way of life
Allah is not careless with words. This sentence is only four words. La Ikrah fi deen. “No compulsion in religion.” Every scholar I’ve ever heard discuss the word deen says that “religion” is a poor translation, and that deen is a complete and comprehensive way of life. Why would Allah use a word that means a complete way of life to describe a truth that only applies to a very specific instance? Could He not have said, “No compulsion in dawah?””
‘Religious illiteracy’ at root of distrust and bigotry
“When people start saying Christians are infidels, (that’s) not according to the Quran,” Asani said, adding that the word Muslims means those “who submit to God.” In that way of thinking, Asani explained, the historical religious conflict was between believers and non-believers, not among Muslims, Christians and Jews.
The Call of Islam
Realize, that just because you are religious does not mean that you are right. Desiring to implement Islamic values is always noble, but having a meaningful and effective strategy is indeed most significant. Forcing other is never an acceptable resort and certainly not the first resort; especially since our deen/way of life commands us not to use compulsion as a tool. Just because something needs to be done does not mean that anything that is done is okay; and just because something is done in religious fervor does not in any way prove that it is Islamically correct.
