The way out of our crisis is to return to actual worship both in understanding and applying. Actual worship is not to resort to the negative side in life and only sit to mutter and think this is worship of Allah, no, by Allah O believers, this is not actual worship.
Actual worship doesn't mean to neglect the practical side, you see Muslims nowadays are only concerned with shape and appearance. Which is worthier as worship to Allah after performing obligatory duties, to achieve a need for a Muslim or to go and perform prayer?
Actual worship doesn't also mean to see Muslim youths now who should support nation and its strength, at the last ten days of Ramadan in a holiday, what will you do in this holiday? He says: I will do E'tekaf (stay in the mosque).
What will you do with and by E'tekaf?
E'tekaf is for old people who retired and no longer have health to work, but you should devote yourself to science to derive what is good for Muslims, stay in your laboratory or your factory. E'tekaf of youths is in mihrab (niche) of knowledge to invent, devise and discover or in any other field, this is the best worship to Allah, don't think that it is not an act of worship, we will explain this shortly.
Actual worship doesn't also mean to stay up all night praying and reciting Koran, because you may not be able to pray the Morning Prayer in time, or get up late and go to work lazily, can't bear people talking to you, and you say that you were staying up all night. Maybe you are a judge or a lawyer and you stay up all night and leave your cases or delay them taking much time and you can't read them because you are busy in worship, or you might decide or plead without enough and careful study, is this the honesty of religion? Is this worship?
Which one is the right worship? To read the cases to judge, plead and finish his work or do an act of worship? The answer is known to every wise person. All these lenient examples that went wrong both in understanding and applying are not the right worship. The way out is to return to the actual worship both in understanding and applying.
