SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association) – Worshipping the world is like being a captive and if a person becomes the servant of the world, he/she will be a prisoner of the world and dependent on it. This means both internally and externally he/she will give in to materialism followed by, obeying own desires and rage because worshipping requires total submission. Worshipping the world will cause stagnation meaning materialism will make a human being to stop and finally make him/her hollow and without any value. But worship of Allah (SWT) is in fact the reverse and will cause human being to rise, grow and develop .
