What is worship?

When asked “What is worship?” Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti, founder of the Chishti Order, responded, “To listen to the plight of the oppressed, to help the needy, and to fill the stomachs of the hungry. Those who do these three things may consider themselves friends of Allah. First they should have generosity like a river; secondly, kindness like the sun and, thirdly, humility like the earth. The one who is blessed is the one who is generous.” (via Wil Gafney via Khalvat Dar Anjuman)
