Knowing True Islaam

The Definition Of Ibaadah (Worship) In Islaam

Al-Ibaadah is a collective term for everything that Allaah loves and is pleased with, from the sayings and the actions, inwardly and outwardly.

The types Of Ibaadah Are Five:

1.  Ibaadah of Belief

    It is that the Muslim believes that Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic, is the Creator, the Sustainer, the Giver of Life and Death and the Manager of the Affairs of His slaves.  The only One worthy of worship alone, having no partners in supplication and slaughtering and vows and other than that and that He is the One described with attributes of Majesty and Perfection of Magnificence and Might and other types of belief.


2.  Ibaadah of Speech

    Such as the pronouncement of the 'shahadah' that there is no one worthy of worship except Allaah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allaah and such as the recitation of the Qur'aan and du'aa (supplication) and Prophetic supplications and other types of verbal worship.


3.  Ibaadah of the Body

    And that is like the standing and bowing and prostrating in the prayer and fasting and the actions of Hajj and Hijrah (migration) and Jihad and other types of bodily worship.


4.  Ibaadah of Wealth

    Such as Zakat (tax for the poor) and Sadaqah (charity) and other than that.


5.  Ibaadah of Abandonment

    It is that the Muslim abandons all forbidden things and types of shirk (polytheism) and bid'ah (innovations in the religion) in compliance to what Allaah has legislated so these are from the Ibaadah of Abandonment.  The Muslim is rewarded for leaving the Haraam (prohibited) when he leaves it seeking the Face of Allaah.
