Spirituality in Islam is defined as the presence of a relationship with Allah that affects the individual’s self worth, sense of meaning, and connectedness with others. In Islam the relational quality of spirituality is understood to be a core theme that comprises beliefs (belief in Allah and His prophets, angels, books, judgment day, paradise and hellfire, etc.), rituals, daily living behaviors and knowledge. Similarly, in following the set of rituals and codes of Islamic religion, an individual is striving to become closer to Allah and to find personal worth and actualization. The essence of spirituality in Islam is the degree of spiritual attainment achieved by any human being by the realization of Tawhid (unity of Allah) as expressed in the Quran, on the basis of the prophetic model and with the aid of the Prophet ﷺ.
