EVERY ACT WORSHIP

by it.ibrahim 0 Comments

In the Islamic system, each and every human act can be transformed into an act of worship. In fact, God commands the believers to dedicate their whole lives to Him. In chapter al-A‘raaf, Allaah says:“Say: ‘Surely my prayer, my sacrifice, my living and my dying are for Allaah, the Lord of all the worlds.’ ” Qur’aan, 7:162. However, for that dedication to be acceptable to Allaah, each act must fulfill two basic conditions: FIRST, THE ACT MUST BE DONE SINCERELY FOR the pleasure of God and not for the recognition and praise of human beings. The believer also has to be conscious of God while doing the deed to insure that it is not something forbidden by Allaah or the last Messenger (PBUH). THE SECOND CONDITION IS THAT THE ACT BE done in accordance with the prophetic way, called in Arabic the sunnah. All of the prophets instructed their followers to follow their way because they were guided by God. What they taught were divinely revealed truths and only those who followed their way and accepted the truths would inherit eternal life in paradise.
