Islam is a religion of ease, there is no inconvenience in its ritual obligations prescribed for its followers and when contemplating on the acts of worship which Almighty Allah has ordered Muslims to perform and the way to carry out these acts, there is ultimate ease and simplicity. Almighty Allah distinguished the Islamic religious obligations from other past nations with ease in worship. The Quranic main purpose and objectives is to make people's lives easy by guiding them to worship Almighty Allah, and to disseminate ease among people in terms of perception, mindset, behavior and coexistence. Therefore, this research aims at establishing the legal basis of the concept of ease in the aspect of worship as per perception of the Quranic expression, and manifestation of ease in worship and its objectives in order to explain the reality of Islam in terms of being a religion of ease and moderation. It also aims to highlight the tolerance aspect of Islamic law. The research aims at explaining the concept of ease, its Quranic derivations and conjugations, and to explain Quranic ease in the aspect of worship. This qualitative research depended on gathering information based on inductive descriptive approach which dissects verses about ease and interprets them, and it also followed the analytic approach through abstracting semantics of the verses and lessons learnt from such verses. Among the conclusions reached in this research is the simplicity and ease of the legal rulings, and aversion of inconvenience, bearing in mind that anything which is extreme or creates inconvenience exits the concept of ease and has no basis in the Islamic religion. Ease is a vital objective of the purposes of the Islamic law. It is the means which should lead to the worship of the Almighty Allah, and it is from this where the importance of explaining the concept of ease comes through the Holy Qur’an to present it to people, preachers and educators.
