Basic Foundation of Worship
Finally it has answered for the puzzle which has not yet solved so far, puzzle which confusing and bringing doubt. That is puzzle about worshiping to Allah swt. Why we found a reality that there were several particular people who are allowed not to fast by Allah swt, while the rest of moslem people are instructed mandatorily to fast.
Why we found a reality that there were several particular people who are allowed no to do prayer by Allah swt, while the rest of moslem people are instructed mandatorily to do prayer.
Evidently, the explanation is as follow. Worship is a certainty for the creatures like jinn and human, because both creatures were created by Allah swt with the intention for them to do worship to Allah swt.
وَمَا خَلَقْتُ الْجِنَّ وَالْإِنْسَ إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُونِ
“And I did not create the jinn and mankind except to worship Me.” (QS 51:56)
Hence, in the sake of worshiping to Allah swt, the mistake made by most of the moslem people is assuming that the basic foundation of worshiping to Allah swt is Syariah Rules. This is wrong, this is an incorrect understanding.
This kind of mistake was then corrected by Allah swt Himself as stated within the Qoran. He stated that basic foundation of worshiping to Allah swt is a sincere (pure obedience) to Allah swt. So, it is not the book of Syariah Rules.
قُلِ اللَّهَ أَعْبُدُ مُخْلِصًا لَهُ دِينِي
“Say, " Allah [alone] do I worship, sincere to Him in my religion." (QS 39:14)
Someone doing fast is not because of expecting rewards or because of expecting praise from the others, and neither be someone not to fast is because of laziness or neglectful, but it is because that basically he was based on sincere to Allah swt.
A woman during her period, then she leave the prayer service or fast, are because of a pure sincere in obeying instruction from Allah swt, not because of obeying the book of Syariah Rules.
A messenger named Ibrahim as, intended to slaughter and sacrifice his own son Ismail, is in order to sincerely obeying instruction from Allah swt. Eventhough that the instruciton was against the book of Syariah Rules. If in case that the Syariah Rules which was made as the basic foundation of worship, then what was done by the prophet Ibrahim as was wrong, and what was said by iblis when they tempted is right because it is aligned with the Syariah Rules, that a father is not allowed to kill hiw own child.
But, evetually it was not so. The basic foundation of worship is a pure sincere to Allah swt. Someone doing fast or not doing fast, doing prayer or not doing prayer, its basic foundation is pure sincere to Allah swt. Not to the book of Syariah Rules, and not to any other things. So, that is the answer of the puzzle on basic foundation of worship.
Whoever has already at this level, worshiping to Allah swt based on the ultimate and sincere obedience to Allah swt, then he deserved to get a degree of a mukhlees. (AK)
