    Most people......

    ".....most people perform worship as long as it is concerned with what they like, although the true worshiper is the one who worships Him by doing what is hard for the self to do, because it is what specifies the ranks of the servants and assigns their statures in the presence of Allah Almighty."

    And, I think "hard" in that quote means something that we normally wouldn't do because of laziness or something and then we overcome that just to worship Allah or waking up to pray tahajjud when you feel like sleeping. I don't think it means "hard" as making Islam harder for yourself, like voluntary fasting when it's 100 F.
    This makes sense...

    allahu aalum sister, maybe because when the women during the time of rasulullah (peace be upon him) were told that they would make up the majority of the inhabitants of the hell fire, they were advised to give in sadaqah

    But I knew that it is better to chose the easy way. I remember reading that , even when we make wdhu, we can warm the water to the point of being easy for us to make wdhu (like in winter, so that we don't freeze). And there are some hadeeth supporting the "easy way", can you clarify please.

    It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:
    “Religion is easy, and no one overburdens himself in his religion but he will be unable to continue in that way. So do not be extremists, but try to be near perfection and receive the good tidings that you will be rewarded. Gain strength by worshipping in the mornings and afternoons and during the last hours of the night.”
    Narrated by al-Bukhaari (39) and Muslim (2816).

    According to another report: “The best of your religion is that which is easiest, the best of your religion is that which is easiest.” Musnad Ahmad (3/479). It was classed as hasan by the commentators.

    In another hadeeth it says: Make things easy (for people) and do not make things difficult, give glad tidings and do not put people off.”

    Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “Allaah intends for you ease, and He does not want to make things difficult for you” [al-Baqarah 2:185].
