Worship is an act of submission and glorification of God. In His wisdom and mercy, God designed worship to be a dynamic force in human life. We discover in the rituals of worship—purification, prayer, zakah, fasting and Hajj—elements that empower our holistic development and reform our communities.
Through worship, we are transformed. Transformed by Worship lays out the textual evidence and scholarship around Islam’s essential acts of worship, extracting the impact on our individual and collective lives. This study explores worship through four lenses in turn: the soul, character, mind and body. Readers will learn how to restore vibrancy to their worship while developing a deeper appreciation for the routines and rulings of Islam. This work is translated from the original Arabic volume Al-Athar Al-Tarbawiyah lil-Ibadat fil-Islam.
