We as devout Muslims are by carrying out orders and staying away from all prohibitions in religion.
The minimum sign of a devout Muslim is to carry out mandatory worship. If the obligatory worship is consistent and there are no holes, then it is used to continue with the sunnah worship.
But as creatures who are equipped with lust, of course humans will have a time when they are lazy to carry out worship.
One of the mass feelings that emerged was that it came from the devil so that the motivation to worship fell.
Therefore, Sheikh Ali Jaber in one of his lectures explained how to increase the motivation to worship.
Quoted from the video uploaded by Sheikh Ali Jaber’sYoutube channel, he conveyed things that were able to encourage the spirit of worship.
According to Sheikh Ali Jaber, there are three things that need to be considered to increase the spirit of worship.
“What drives us when we worship cannot be separated from three points or three things,” said Sheikh Ali Jaber.
- First, a person must have a sense of love to carry out worship either obligatory or sunnah.
- Second, a person when performing worship must have a sense of hope for goodness and help from Allah SWT.
- Third, the thing that drives people to worship is fear.
“Fear of being rejected, afraid of not being accepted, afraid of not being perfect, and afraid of being in vain,” said Sheikh Ali Jaber.
“Is there any wasted practice? There is,” he continued.
After asking this question, Sheikh Ali Jaber explained with the verse of the Qur’an, Surah Al Kahf verse 104:
اَلَّذِيْنَ ضَلَّ سَعْيُهُمْ فِى الْحَيٰوةِ الدُّنْيَا وَهُمْ يَحْسَبُوْنَ اَنَّهُمْ يُحْسِنُوْنَ صُنْعًا
Meaning: (That is) people whose actions are in vain in the life of this world, while they think they have done their best.
“Those who lose are those who come on the Day of Judgment, he feels he has done a lot of good,” said Sheikh Ali Jaber.
This is the same with arrogant people, so that on the Day of Resurrection that person will lose. Because, when worshiping he is not for Allah SWT.
Tips to to increase worship
Therefore, in carrying out worship, everyone must be sincere because of Allah SWT. Because Allah SWT is the only place to ask for protection and goodness.***
As for how to overcome laziness to carry out worship, here we have summarized it for you.
