Worship without Charity Is Unacceptable to Allah

One day the Lord asked Jibrail " Oh Jibrail, had I made you a human being, how would you have worshipped Me?" " Oh Lord , cried the angel , "all secrets are open to You!" "Yes indeed" said the Lord, " but let My servants be aware that they do not know what I know." Jibrail then went on to say "I would worship your Divine essence in three ways: First by helping those in poverty. Second by covering up the guilt of sinners. Thirdly by quenching the thirst of the thirsty." The Exalted One said "It is because I knew this about you, that I made you My trusted agent for the transmission of my Revelations."
