A category of religious persons is of those who follow religion as a routine. They then get busy with their children, business, or job. The other kind of religious person is one who deeply involves himself in religion for God’s sake. He studies the Quran, the lives of the Prophet and his Companions. His religion is no more a routine; it is a deeper discovery of God. His namaz is marked by submission to God. Every act of his has new life. He develops intellectually and experiences resurgence in his personality. He can thus establish greater contact with God. For such a person, God has said that his actions are for Me, and I will reward him without measure.
