The real worship of God


SHAFAQNA – It is narrated from Imam Ali (AS) who said: O’ Allah (SWT), I worship You, not for fearing the hellfire and do not worship You, for paradise, I only worship You because You are worthy of being worshipped [1]. In another narration, Imam Ali (AS) said: If all the curtains removed, nothing will ever be added to my belief [2]. Therefore, a believer who seeks closeness to Allah (SWT) must do his/her ultimate effort to bring his/her knowledge about the Supreme Being to an acceptable level in order to be able to worship God properly.
