Sheik Yusuf al-Qaradawi preaches on the Islamic doctrine of taysir, which translates to “ease” or moderation of the strictest interpretation of Koranic injunctions – especially for Muslims residing in Evropa or North America. In this he is joined by the Muslim Brotherhood’s Tariq Ramadan:
(He) recommends that a “moratorium” — a temporary ban — be placed on the Muslim practice of stoning adulterers to death; yet he refuses to say that stoning is intrinsically un-Islamic. This, of course, is taysir in practice: because stoning people in the West is liable to get the stoner incarcerated or worse, upholding the Sharia mandate to stone adulterers is “hard” on Muslims living in the West, so best to put it on hold — that is, till circumstances are more opportune.
Moderation – he keeps using that word. I do not think it means what he thinks it means.
