Hadith of the day

Reported by `Aisha: (the wife of the Prophet): Never did Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) make a choice between two things but adopting the easier one as compared to the difficult one, but his choice for the easier one was only in case it did not involve any sin, but if it involved sin he was the one who was the farthest from it amongst the people.

(Sahih Muslim, Book 43, Hadith 106)
