The prayer is heavy, because one’s legs and hands are not what get up for the prayer. What gets up for the prayer are the heart and the soul.
If someone says, ‘Arabic is foreign to me’, that translates into ‘the understanding of the Qur’an & Sunnah of AlMustafa (saw) is foreign to me’.

Many of the du’aat (callers to Islaam) are themselves unaware of many basic matters of Aqeedah.
So what Islam are they calling to! Islam is not merely a call, rather it is a reality to be learnt and practiced.
This is our ‘Aqeedah which is more precious to us than our own lives. It has stood the test of time and remained firm for fourteen centuries. It will continue to remain so in the face of all the onslaughts of the disbelievers, the spreading of doubt by the hypocrites and the innovations of the heretics. It has also been steadfast despite the remiss and negligence of many Muslims.
Tolerance is a basic principle of Islam. It is a religious moral duty. Islam teaches tolerance on all levels: individual, groups and states. Tolerance is the mechanism that upholds human rights and the rule of law.
