    CONCEPT OF IBADAH
    The Arabic word Ibadah has connotation, the basic concept implies by its root word ‘abd is that of acknowledging someone other than oneself as holding supremacy over worship and abdicating one’s freedom .
    Submission And Unconditional Submission
    The word “Islam” indicating the concept of unconditional submission i.e. total one, Almighty Allah says: Surah Al-Nisah vs 125. “who can be better in religion than one who submits his face to God”. And another verse denotes total submission is that of Al-Imran 85 “whoever exercises anyother religion accept that of unconditional submission (Islam) will never be accepted”. And we as muslims shoud serve Allah for love and passion unconditional as we can clearly see the sign of that total submission in the statement of Rabiatul-Adawiyyat who said “I serve you (ALLAH) not because of avidity in your “paradise” and not because of the fear of your hell fire but only because of my love”.
    Affirmation, Manner and Form
    Our religion (Islam) does not contains only the affirmation of oneness of Allah (Al-Tawhid) but we also need to put its manner and form into consideration in which we confirm that affirmation as been shown to us by the Prophet (SAW).
    The word manner as far as the arabic language is concerned indication “Millah”. By saying this we refer to the true Islamic monotheism of Ibraheem (Abraham).
    1. Almighty Allah says: “say, oh Muhammad (SAW) truly, my lord has guided me to a straight path, a right religion, the religion of Ibraheem (Abraham), Hanifa (i.e. the true Islamic monotheism – to believe in one God (Allah i.e. to worship none but Allah alone) and he was not of Al-Mushrikun (the disbeliever in the oneness of Allah i.e. Idolaters). Q6:161.
    2. Allah says: [And who turns away from the religion of Ibrahim (Abraham) (i.e. Islamic Monotheism) accept him who befools himself? Truly, we choose in this world and verily, in the hereafter he will be among the righteous].
    3. Says (And they say, be jews or Christian, then you will be guided” say ( to them, oh Muhammad peace be upon him). “say, (we follow) only the religion of Ibrahim (Abraham), Hanifa (Islamic Monotheism, i.e. to worship none but Allah alone and he was not of Al-mushrikin (the disbeliver in the oneness of Allah i.e. Idolaters).Q2:161.
