All tasks should be done for God sake, Imam Khomeini explained

All tasks should be done for God sake, Imam Khomeini explained

Imam Khomeini through his theological works explained that God Almighty will show him that he not only did not perform any worship for His sake.

Imam through his famous works of "an exposition on Forty Hadith" explained that God Almighty will show him that he not only did not perform any worship for His sake, but also that his works of devotion and piety only took him away from God and have removed him away from his goal.

Not only his faith and deeds have been invalid, but they have also served as the cause of eternal damnation and painful chastisement in hell.

God forbid, lest God Almighty judges anybody with the criteria of His justice, because, as mentioned previously, not a single individual, from the first to the last, will find any way of redemption.

The prayers and supplications of His chosen servants and the infallible Imams (A) are replete with the confessions of their failure to do justice to the demands of the worship and the service of Lord, Imam further explains.

While the most perfect of all creatures and the man nearest to God (i.e. the Prophet [S]) utters:

We did not know You as You deserve to be known. We did not worship You as You deserve to be worshipped.

What will others do? Of course, they were aware of His greatness and they knew the relation between the contingent and the Necessary Being perfectly well.

They knew that if they spent their lives in His worship, service, and praise, they would not be able to thank Him for His favors, let alone paying the proper tribute due to His Essence and Attributes.
