Such a Pleasure Removes Tiredness of Fasting

If we look at worship actions by itself, perhaps we say they are boring and they make us tired, especially some worship that are difficult. For example when we are told that we must fast for one month in Ramadan, maybe it does not give us a good sense.
But it is only the one side of a coin and such a problem will be solved by looking other side.
When a Muslim is ordered to do a special worship, it means h/she is addressed by Allah the almighty. In other term, h/she deserved to be an addressee of God and it is a very high position in which no difficulty will be sensed.
Now if we only want to talk about fasting we refer to verse 183 of second chapter in Holy Quran in which Allah SWT ordered to fast in Ramadan and this verse is started with “O' you who have Faith!” (
یا ایها الذین آمنوا)
And Imam Sadigh (the sixth Imam of Shia Muslims) says: "The pleasure found in (the phrase: ' O' you who have Faith! ' is so that) it has removed the tiredness of this worship and effort." (Majma'-al-Bayan, vol. 2, p. 27)

Salamun aalykum.

In some narrations, some reasons are mentioned why we have no pleasure in our worship. Here are some:

- كَيْفَ يَجِدُ لَذَّةَ الْعِبَادَةِ مَنْ لَا يَصُومُ عَنِ الْهَوَى

(Ghurar al-Hikam, p. 199)

Imam Ali (as): The one who does not refrain vein desires can not find any pleasure in his worship.

- Prophet 'Isa (as):

ْإِنَّهُ كَمَا يَنْظُرُ الْمَرِيضُ إِلَى طَيِّبِ الطَّعَامِ فَلَا يَلْتَذُّهُ مَعَ مَا يَجِدُهُ مِنْ شِدَّةِ الْوَجَعِ كَذَلِكَ صَاحِبُ الدُّنْيَا لَا يَلْتَذُّ بِالْعِبَادَةِ وَ لَا يَجِدُ حَلَاوَتَهَا مَعَ مَا يَجِدُ مِنْ حُبِّ الْمَالِ

"A sick person has no pleasure in eating delicious food because of his pain. The same is true for the one who loves this world. He can non enjoy worshiping since he loves wealth".

- In a Qudsi narration, Allah (SWT), addressing Prophet Dawud (as), says:

 مَا لِأَوْلِيَائِي وَ الْهَمَّ بِالدُّنْيَا إِنَّ الْهَمَّ يُذْهِبُ حَلَاوَةَ مُنَاجَاتِي مِنْ قُلُوبِهِمْ يَا دَاوُدُ إِنَّ مَحَبَّتِي مِنْ أَوْلِيَائِي أَنْ يَكُونُوا رُوحَانِيِّينَ لَا يَغْتَمُّونَ

(Bihar al-Anwar, vol. 79 p. 143)

"My close servants have no concern about worldly affairs. Such concern would remove the pleasure of worshiping Me..."
