Essence of Servitude

The best thing is that one should always keep it in mind that the life cannot be trusted. Nobody knows when the death may overtake him. It is, therefore, necessary that one should be asking for the forgiveness of his sins. The essence of religion is that one should be seeking after the forgiveness of his sins and he should be anxious for the attainment of the pleasure of God. This also is the real achievement of success in the worldly affairs. The compendium of all the acts of worship and servitude is that one should get his sins forgiven and become recipient of the pleasures of God the Almighty.
