The most pleasurable of all things for the Noble Prophet (S.A.W.A) was his relationship with the Worshipped and private and intimate talks with God. He would never grow tired of his servitude towards God. Without a doubt, expressing servitude towards God as well as these private and intimate talks bring about a particular form of enthusiasm that causes all other than God to be left in the valley of the forgotten. The field of man's heart is transformed into a salt marsh where the love of other than God can never grow.

 Prophet Muhammad would maintain this state of worship in the most complete manner.

‘Aishah (the Prophet's wife) said, "The Messenger of God would be speaking to us and we would be speaking to him, until the time for prayer would set in, and then it was as if he did not know us and we did not know him.

 ‘Ali (A.S) said, "The Messenger of God would never postpone his prayer for dinner or anything else. When the time for prayer arrived, it was as if he did not know his family and friends."

Ali ibn Husain (A.S), one of the descendants of the prophet has clarified the Prophet's desire and enthusiasm for worship as such, "The Messenger of God would stand on the tips of his toes, then God revealed the following verse, “We have not revealed the Qur’an to you for you to experience great discomfort" [20:2]

It has also been narrated that: One night, the Prophet (peace be upon him) was in the home of one of his wives (Umm Salamah). After a little of the night had passed, Umm Salamah saw that the Messenger of God was not in bed. She got up and went looking for him. All of a sudden she noticed that he was standing next to the room with his hands raised, his eyes full of tears and he was saying the following; "O God, don't take away the good you have given me. O God, don't please my enemies and those who are jealous of me. O God, don't allow their evil from which you saved me to come back. O God, don't leave me to myself, even for one moment."

As one can see, The Messenger of God perpetually saw himself in the presence of God and he would remember God with his heart and tongue and in this way, he caused the water of monotheism to flow across the land of his spirit, to the point where the tree of proximity to God was rooted in his heart and mixed with his being.
