Any action that Allah is pleased with.
Islam’s concept of worship is not restricted to only the five pillars. Worship is an all-inclusive term for any actions that are pleasing to Allah.
Everyday activities can become acts of worship by purifying one’s intention and ensuring one’s actions are in line with God’s guidelines.
Examples include smiling, being good to one’s neighbours, supporting one’s family, being honest, and even removing rubbish from the road.
It should be noted that Allah is not in need of anyone’s worship, rather, we are in need of Him and our worship is for our benefit.
When practised, Islam fulfils the spiritual, physical, psychological and social needs of all people, and is a practical and rational way of life.
Furthermore, it is the only way of life which is accepted by God Almighty, and the only path that leads to everlasting Paradise.
“Whoever does righteousness, whether male or female, while he is a believer – We will surely cause him to live a good life, and We will surely give them their reward [in the Hereafter] according to the best of what they used to do.” Quran 16:97
