Imam Husain Says: "Some people worship God coveting his rewards. This is worship of merchants. Some people worship God, fearing His punishments. This is worship of slaves. Some people worship God, thanking His blessings. This is worship of the free superior persons".

Some people worships God, because they fear of God's punishments. It is the worship of merchants, but it doesn’t mean that this kind of worshiping is meaningless. Actually worshiping like everything has different and prefect levels. The worship of merchants isn’t the prefect one. They are seeking interest like merchants.

The second group that Imam Husain mentioned to them is those who worship God as slaves obey their boss. Slaves obey their boss because they fear of punishments and sanctions. So some people they obey God and worship Him because of hell and His Tribulation.

But the most prefect and completed kind  is worshiping God for His grace. As Imam Husain (s.a) worshiped him in this way at the night of Ashura.

As Imam Ali (s.a) mentioned to these levels of worship of God. He says "There are people who worship Allah to gain His Favors, this is the worship of traders; while there are some who worship Him to keep themselves free from His Wrath, this is the worship of slaves; a few who obey Him out of their sense of gratitude and obligations, this is the worship of free and noble men".
