The Purpose of Worship
Worship provides the believers with many benefits that contribute to
both their spiritual and worldly well-being. Some of the most
significant of these benefits are as follows:
1. Enrichment and development of the soul: The human being is formed
from matter. The human body needs material resources for its
existence, like food, drink, and a means of reproduction. As for the
soul, its needs cannot be fulfilled except through nearness to Allah
by means of faith and obedience. This can only be achieved through
worship. Allah must be worshipped in times of hardship and times of
prosperity. Allah says:
"We truly know how your heart is distressed by what they say. So
celebrate the praises of your Lord and be of those who prostrate
themselves and worship your Lord until the sure hour (of death)."
"When the help of Allah and the victory comes and you see the people
entering into the religion of Allah in crowds, then glorify the
praises of your Lord and seek His forgiveness. Verily He is Most
2. Realization of human freedom: Worship liberates the human being
from subjugation to anything besides Allah. Worship keeps a person
from surrendering his or her will to false gods. This gives a person
absolute freedom from everything besides the power of Allah. This
produces a sense of security and ******
*ment in the heart towards
Allah. The person understands the true value of things and feels
liberated from everything. Thus, the source of all strength is
submission to Allah. Allah says:
"If anyone seeks might, then all might is with Allah."
3. Examination of the believer in preparation for the life to come:
Allah says, quoting Mûsâ (Moses, peace be upon him):
"O my people, this worldly life is but a provision, while the
Hereafter is the eternal abode."
The worldly life is a time of trial. The substance of this trial is
the worship of Allah in fulfillment of His commandments. Allah says:
"(Allah is) Who created death and life to try you as to who is best in
4. Social reform: We find that worship, in it most comprehensive
understanding, embodies every possible means of individual and social
reform. This is because every individual and collective endeavor can
enter into the domain of worship. Islam has prescribed certain
obligations on the societal - as opposed to the individual - level.
This takes societal needs into consideration. Allah says:
"Allah has promised those among you who believe and do righteous deeds
that he will give them authority in the Earth as He has done for those
who came before and that He will establish their religion that He
wants to replace their fear with security. They may worship Me and not
associate partners with Me."
