When is a deed an act of worship?
Question:

When is a deed an act of worship?
Answer:

If two aspects are present: perfect love (for Allaah) combined with perfect humility (to Him). Allaah, the Most High, says:

But those who believe, love Allaah more (than anything else)” (al-Baqarah: 165)

And He, the Most High, said:

Verily those who live in awe for fear of their Lord” (al-Mu'minun: 57)

Allaah, the Most High, gathered these two aspects in His saying:

Verily, they used to hasten to good deeds, and they used to call upon Us with hope and fear, and used to humble themselves before Us” (al-Anbiyaa: 90)
