Worshipping Allah swt/ Gratitude.

قَالَ الْإِمَامُ الْحسین عَلَیْهِ السَّلَامُ: ‏ إِنَ‏ قَوْماً عَبَدُوا اللَّهَ‏ رَغْبَةً فَتِلْكَ عِبَادَةُ التُّجَّارِ وَ إِنَّ قَوْماً عَبَدُوا اللَّهَ رَهْبَةً فَتِلْكَ عِبَادَةُ الْعَبِيدِ وَ إِنَّ قَوْماً عَبَدُوا اللَّهَ شُكْراً فَتِلْكَ عِبَادَةُ الْأَحْرَارِ وَ هِيَ أَفْضَلُ الْعِبَادَةِ.

Imam Al-Hussaiin (peace be upon him) said: Some people worshipped God for the purpose of gaining His gifts. This is the worship of the merchants. Some worship Him for the purpose of avoiding His punishment. This is the worship of the slaves. Some worship Him as showing gratitude to Him. This is the worship of the genuine ones. It is worshop of a free person and indeed this is the best worship.

A question was asked from Imam Hussain (a.s): O son of Nabi (s.a.w.w), how have you started morning and the day? Imam (a.s) said: Started my day in that condition that I found God watching me, found hell beside me, found the death near to me, found all my deeds in my surroundings. I couldn’t got what I wanted to, can’t stop myself for the thing which I don’t like and found my affairs on someone else's (God) hands that if wanted to give me punishment or may forgive me. Is there anyone poor more than me?
