Some of righteous people repent from attributing the good deeds they do to themselves, because if he saw himself that he worshipped or did without looking at the guidance, support and ability of Allah, then this is a sin Allah questions us about it because He ordered us to say at every prostration in prayers to admit and confess saying:
1-5: "You do we worship, and Your aid we seek."
We seek Allah's power, his support and his help to help us worship Him, if His care and His support left us for a twinkle of an eye, can anyone of us say Subhan Allah ((Glory to Allah)?
Who can do without the support of his Lord?
Can anyone prepare his body and his soul and stands in front of Allah towards the direction of Mecca (Kebla), and then remember the words of prayers, thanking Allah and talking to his Lord? How can he do this without the ability, support and help from Allah? If man is left to his skills and cleverness without the divine power and divine support, what can he do?
He can't do less or more, he won't be able to move a foot or a finger or an eye or say a word by his tongue because all this can't move without the orders of Who says to something BE and it IS at once.
So, those who think that they worship Allah by themselves and that they themselves obey and do the acts of worship maybe tested at the Day of Judgment by what Allah says:
68-42: "And they will be required to fall prostrate, but they will be unable to."
Because there is no support there, then how can he fall prostrate and how can he worship?
Man who reaches the highest degree of worship should repent from attributing acts of worship to himself and from being proud of them or boasting that he does this, because he sees that the doer is Allah and that he should be proud and honored that Allah enabled him to do movements of worship and got him to stand in front of Him. I should boast that He got me to stand in front of Him and directed me to talk to Him by His words or take me to His house and enables me to go round His Majesty and around His blessed house (Ka'ba).
What I have or do in all this, its only His support and His guidance. All that we mentioned are degrees in repentance that righteous people repent from.
