Quran-E-Hakeem and our life
The concept of Ibadah in Islam-1
Since worship is a natural human instinct, therefore since time immemorial human beings are in a quest for a supreme power. Sometimes man became awestruck by the forces of nature and he began to worship the Sun, the Moon, the rivers etc. Sometimes he created idols with his own hands and started worshipping them.
The propagators of different religions had encouraged people to believe in monotheism. However, Islam had emerged as the greatest propagator and preacher of monotheism. Islam taught to mankind the concept of monotheism and cleared this concept of all its impurities.
Allah (swt.) says in surat At-Thariat, (Verse 56), "I did not create the Jinn and the humans but to ya'bodoon (submit to me)." The word ibadah is of Arabic origin and it means submission, obedience, and humility. In this verse Allah (swt) says that the basic purpose of creation of mankind and jinnat is ibadah. The concept of Ibadat is a comprehensive one which covers all aspects of man’s life. It does not include only the acts of worship such as namaz, Quran recitation, giving alms etc because we do not spend our entire lifetime performing these rituals. So ibadah can be divided into two broad categories. The first category comprises of the rituals which are meant exclusively to worship Allah (swt) such as salaah, roza etc. These are the direct acts of worship. The second category of ibadah includes the acts, which may seem to be routine, but they are transformed into acts of ibadah when they are carried out in complete conformity with the laws of Shari’ah and with an intention to discharge one’s obligations. Therefore all our actions in life, if accompanied by good intention, can develop into ibadah. This shows that ibadah is thus not restricted to the known rituals.
