These are the most important basic elements of Islam which are essential to know and put in practice by each and every individual. Ibadah is so important for which man and jinn are created. Akhlaq is so important for which the Messenger of Allah was sent and assigned for and manner is so important the observance of which is imperative of having paradise. As regards "Ibadah“ Allah Ta’ala says “Indeed I have not created man and jinn but they should worship Me” and as regards Akhlaq or character the Messenger of Allah says that “Indeed I have been sent to perfect the character (of man)” and as regards manner (in responding toward a favor) Allah Ta’ala command “when you are greeted with a greeting; greet in return that which is better than it or (at least) return it equally. Certainly, Allah is Ever Careful Account Taker of all things”. The outcome or findings of this writing is firstly have shown that Ibadah, in addition to the meaning of worship - is the obedience of the entire set of laws of Allah without any reservations whatsoever. Secondly, performance of all permissible acts and avoidance of all prohibited acts in one’s life time is Ibadah provided these are done in carrying out one’s obligation for the pleasure of Allah and reward in the hereafter. Hence, a man can be a good worshiper of Allah while he is a Politian, or a professional if he leads his all of his actions, duties, obligations etc., in conformity with the law of Allah. Thirdly, the sole objective of sending the Messenger of Allah is to perfect the character means to purify the soul of human being as the soul is responsible for producing good actions, reactions and behaviors. Hence, character of a person good means the soul of a person is good and having of good soul is the way either to paradise and bad soul is the hell.
