The status of Al-Ikhlas

The status of Ikhlass

Ikhlass has a very prominent status in religion; it is unequaled by any other trait. Deeds are only accepted by Allah if they are performed with Ikhlass. Allah reminds us in numerous ayat of the Qur&"an about Ikhlass. Some of these ayat are: &"They were not commanded except to worship Allah, (being) sincere to Him in religion, inclining to truth&" (Al-Baiyinah: 5).

Allah (mighty and majestic is He) says: 162- Say: &"Indeed, my prayer, my rites of sacrifice, my living and my dying are for Allah, Lord of the worlds.’ 163- ‘No partner has He. This I have been commanded, and I am the first (among you) of the Muslims&" &" (Al-An&"âm: 162-163).

Allah (mighty and majestic is He) says: &"(He) Who created death and life to test you (as to) which of you is best in deed&" (Al-Mulk: 2).

He also says: 2- Indeed, We have sent down to you the Boo, (O Muhammad) in truth. So worship Allah, (being) sincere to Him in religion. 3- Unquestionably, for Allah is the pure religion (Az-Zumar: 2-3).

Allah the Exalted says: &"So whoever would hope for the meeting with his Lord - let him do righteous work and not associate in the worship of his Lord anyone&" (Al-Kahf: 110).
