The Role of Worship in Achieving Internal Peace

Worship is a serious human practice to completely get rid of Selfishness. In order to be free from its prison to which man is bounded and enslaved. In Islam, worship is an integrated curriculum. Its purpose is to achieve human perfection from impurities and deviations, in order to prepare the human for winning the closeness of God and deserve his satisfaction.

What does Islam encourage?

The worship of Islam all came as a tribute to the soul and the body, self-purification, development of the spirit and will, and correction of the activity of the body and instinct. It serves as a stage by which the human soul is graded, stage after stage, so that it has serenity and purity, and it can look at the world of the afterlife, explore the truth of existence.

Prayer is the first way to achieve internal peace

Islam has made Prayer an exhortation to man of pride and transcendence, an inculcation of the virtue of humility and love for others. It is a meet with God to seek forgiveness and resign from sins, and to sharpen the soul.

The role of fasting and prayers to achieve internal peace

Fasting is a strength to the will in order to stop falling under the weight of sensual needs. The prayer is a development of the strength of the spiritual sense, and development to the connection with God, and the believer turns to him in his tribulations and adversity. And when the person abuses and disobeys god, he is confident that he will be accepted by the Lord, the Most Merciful, the most helpful.

Fasting does not call for fighting physical demands, such as food, drink, marriage, rest, and enjoyment on the pretext that it opposes Spiritual Integration and closeness to God. But it is a complete balance between the soul and the body and did not separate them. Islam does not see the demands of the body as a barrier to the integrity of the soul. Or as an obstacle to the development of morality, but believes that the object of the body and spirit in terms of its innate composition is one goal.

Effect of worship on both individual and social levels

Worship affects both the individual and social levels since Islam is a holistic religion that takes into account all dimensions of human existence. Worship in Islam has its effects and benefits in achieving internal peace on the individual and social levels:

On the individual level

Worship collectively affects the construction of the human personality, elevating it to the Integrative level, ridding it of all obstacles that prevent its promotion, and its integration of selfishness, hatred, hypocrisy, hypocrisy, and greed.

Worship purifies the human from all these obstacles and helps to save it from various psychological and moral diseases. It contributes to an individual’s inner content conforming to external appearance and behavior, and to a complete harmony between personality and lofty values and principles. It also instills a love of perfection and transcendence that drives a man to transcendence.

On the social level

In all its worship, Islam has taken into account that worship has a complementary effect on oneself and a practical return on society in order to reform and improve its situation. Prayer forbids obscenity

Fasting makes people feel equal and share their sense of need and poverty when suffering the pain of thirst and hunger. Hajj is a conference of unity, understanding, acquaintance and reform. Etc. Atonement, vows, alms, Zakat and five devotions to satisfy the financial needs of the poor and achieve economic balance in society.

Worship has important social and moral implications that reflect on the life of human society and affect its various human relations. Worship and the feeling of slavery to God alone saves man from submission to the will of tyrants, and the feeling of it also frees man from lust and from the control of the love of money, its collection and accumulation, and the harnessing, injustice. The feeling of slavery to God frees people, from the conflicts and tragedies they live for supremacy and control.

The feeling of slavery to God makes men feel equality and justice between people, for they are all equal in the attribute of slavery to the one god only. So, the society in which worship and slavery prevail to God, in which people find no purpose in life other than God, are filled by nothing other than slavery to God. People then are free as they were created. And as their great creator wanted them.
