The Inner Secrets Of Worship
Imam Ibn Qudamah al-Maqdisi
Allah, the Most High said:
"I created the jinn and mankind only for My worship" [Qur'an (51): 56].
In Islam, worship is the right of Allah, the Most High. Worship is addressed to Him alone, without association or reverence for anything or anyone else. It is the right of Allah alone that His servants perform the acts of worship prescribed by Islam. Worship is everything that Allah loves, including deeds, deeds and speech.
If you want to develop a close relationship with your Lord, gain His pleasure, increase your love for Him, or draw closer to Him, this passage is vital to you. This work will not only change your view of worship, but it will enrich your soul to be an obedient servant of Allah and give you a spiritual upliftment that your soul needs. Often people complain about not finding inner peace, or about motivation to do more good deeds, this work with the permission of Allah will fill that void.
In this third episode, Imam Ibn Qudamah outlines the importance of worship and how worship should be done with knowledge of the Qur'an and Sunnah, and gives examples of our pious predecessors. It covers many aspects of worship such as knowledge, purification, prayer, zakat, fasting, hajj, Quran recitation, supplication and the excellence of night prayer.
