Man is destined to worship Allah SWT. And if you are in fear of allah and do good deeds, then surely Allah is All-Forgiving, All-Wise.
Therefore, many Muslims are vying for the worship in order to get protection from the heat of hell fire. However, there are still many people who are reluctant to worship God because of lazy feelings.
The feeling of being lazy in worship can be caused by many factors. It could be yourself or someone else. It turns out that there are five main causes of a person being lazy to perform worship. arbitrary? Here’s more information.
1. Often Sin
The first reason a person is lazy in worship turns out to be because the person is in a state of sin and sin. Especially the small sins that are often underestimated and forgotten by most people. But this small sin is one of the causes of lethargy, lazy and disdain for worship and obedience.
People who continue to live in this habit will get wrath from Allah SWT. One form of God’s wrath is to obliterate the sweetness of faith and God will not give him delicacy in obedience.
This is the wrath of Allah, and he who commits sin and sin will befall him. Then he is unable to do obedience and worship, in fact it is a way to obtain happiness in this world and the Hereafter.
2. Not Understanding the Urgency of Worship to Allah
The cause of lazy people to worship the kedia is because they forget the urgency of worship. Among the forms of negligence of a person is because he forgets that he is a weak being. But it is Allah who makes him strong and able to do worship.
As a Muslim, he should know and understand that worshiping God is the core to get help and help from Allah SWT. Allaah says:
“And those who strive hard for us, we will surely guide them in our ways. And indeed Allah is with the doers of good.” Qs. Al-Ankabut:69)
3. Forgetting Death
Forgetting death is one of the causes of a person’s lazy worship. Therefore, we are encouraged to remember death more diligently in worship. Allaah says:
“Every soul shall taste death. And verily on the Day of Resurrection, your reward will be completed.” Qs. Ali Imran : 185)
4. Don’t Know the Magnitude of the Reward of Worship
Another reason a person is lazy to do worship is because they do not know the amount of reward that will be obtained because of an worship.
Ignorance is what makes the person lazy in worship. On the other hand, if he knows the great reward behind the worship done, he will be more diligent in worship.
5. Exaggeration in Terms of Mubah
The last reason a person is lazy to do worship is because he is exaggerated in doing something mubah. That is in terms of food, drink, clothing, and vehicles and others. This makes him lazy to do worship and more eager to rest and sleep.
Exaggeration in doing something mubah such as food and drink can be one of the causes of hardness of the heart. With such a hard heart makes man become unable to remember his Creator.
Ibn al-Qayyim rohimahulloh said, “Consuming a lot of food is a disease that will cause bad, eating a lot can lead the limbs to sin, and it is hard to do obedience. So be careful of this evil.”
