In the Name of God, The Most Beneficent, The Most Merciful.

قال النبي (ص) : مَنْ أَخْلَصَ لِلَّهِ أَرْبَعِينَ صَبَاحَاً ظَهَرَتْ يَنَابِيعُ الحِكْمَةِ مِنْ قَلْبِهِ إلَي‌ لِسَانِه

The Holy Prophet (S) said : ” Whoever dedicates himself to God for forty days, will find springs of wisdom sprout out of his heart and flow toward his tongue. “

[Bihar Al-Anwar, Volume 53, Page 326]

When you get closer to God, you are automatically approaching the wisdom that is a light from God. Wisdom is undoubtedly what we should achieve when we worship God. Many worshipers of the world who worship God, worship him without knowing why they worship him. Worship should lead to wisdom and not to the opposite of wisdom.

It feels like the worshipers today get the opposite effect of what they should achieve as a servant of God. This is due to a blind tradition which is followed by these worshipers. A blind tradition of worshiping God without knowing what the meaning of coming near the source of wisdom means. God is the source of all light of all wisdom. Getting close to God is getting close to the wisest of the wise. Knowledge can be obtained by every single human being, but how many have used their knowledge correctly, so that they have attained the sweetness of wisdom?

We all should reflect on our relationship with God and how we can get close to God in a wise way. There are many who worship God, while their hearts are repeatedly filled with foolishness. Only a few individuals reflect on why we are worshiping God, and not they are not merely worshiping him because mum and dad are worshiping him. We should all reflect on every philosophy behind every Islamic act, so that we can understand the meaning and the essence of every fruit we are growing. Remember that the sweetness of every action is cultivated in the heart (the intention). The act is only a display. What counts, is the very purpose of why you performed the act itself.

Peace and Blessings be upon The Holy Prophet (S) and his Family (A)
