This verse is still discussing the analogy that Allah U used for the hypocrites. They want true goodness without difficulties and tribulations. Whereas the rain brings along with it lightning, thunder and utter darkness. It is inevitable that difficulty is shouldered in order to receive goodness.
There is no religion that does not have responsibilities. If a person wishes to hold on to a religion without responsibilities, then that is not a religion in reality.
The religious responsibilities are actually not only a form of worship. They are not only dos and don’t or ‘This is permissible’ and ‘That is not permissible’.
There is no religion which does not have responsibilities and tasks. This is because, faith has to be translated by actions, and there has to be patience in going through tribulations.
The hypocrite wants to get goodness without carrying a burden and to receive his wages without giving anything in return. He does not want to shoulder any responsibilities in return for the wages that he wishes to obtain.
