THE CONCEPT OF ‘IBADAH’ AND ‘IBADAT’

Post by tayyab60 » Tue Jul 16, 2013 11:13 am

DEAR BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN ISLAM aoa and wrtb.
UNDERSTANDING THE CONCEPT OF ‘IBADAH’ (worship) AND ‘IBADAT’(resource/means)
Just like other misconceptions among the muslims all over the world regarding islam as a deen, this misunderstanding is another glaring example of our lack of real will to invest time and effort to understand and practice the true spirit of our glorious religion. The most obvious result of this blatant and voluntary ignorance is that we have unfortunately ended up in a ’self conceived / customised and socially and culturally adopted faith to suit our worldly demands rather than that of Allah swt, with the most evident result of chaos, confusion and mess all around us.
Ibadah is the ultimate uncompromising obligation of every muslim as commanded by Allah swt in the Quran Alkarim “ma khalaq tul Jinnah wal insaah illa lay ya’badun” (we have created jinns and humans but to worship Allah swt) where as Ibadat are the resource /means to achieve this final goal. This can happen only if we incorporate the true spirit of Ibadats in our lives. Since this is a very wide subject I will give you just one example to prove my point e.g. Allah swt commands in Quran Alkarim that “ salat (prayer) protects you from ‘fahshah’ (moral corruption) and ‘munker’ (disobedience and evil). IF OUR SALAT ISN’T DOING WHAT ALLAH SWT IS COMMANDING…ITS USELESS WASTE IS’NT IT?.
Practicing routine Ibadat and maintaining unislamic way of life and character and falsely hoping to achieve Ibadah is nothing but WISHFUL THINKING.
MAY ALLAH SWT HELP US AND GUIDE US TO UNDERSTAND OUR GLORIOUS DEEN...AMEEN.
