The life of a Muslim is very special as it is full of opportunities to get closer to Allah ﷻ by performing the various forms of worship that Allah ﷻ loves. These forms of worship turn the life of a Muslim into a life of righteous action, speech and continuous activity for the benefit and goodness of everyone. This means that the life of Mu’mins should be devoted to worship, obedience, righteous deeds and absolute connection with Allah ﷻ in every part of their life, and in all their affairs. They do not need to go to the mosque, in particular, to approach Allah ﷻ, as He is with them all the time, as He said in the Qur’an (Surah Qaf: 16): “…and We are closer to him than [his] jugular vein.”
