Worship in Islam has its own characteristics totally different from the concept of worship in other religions and beliefs. Among those features is there is no intermediary between God and man, and worship in Islam is not bound by any particular place or time.Allah says:

They all had the regulations morals from the Islamic perspective that can make our practices became ritual.
Terms and Conditions For A Practice (Traditional) It is WorshipAll our work can be worship if done in accordance with the methods prescribed by Islam. It must contain the bilateral relations. That is our relationship with God and our relationships with other people.Allah says:

Therefore, the common practices will only be recognized as places of worship if it satisfies the following conditions:Working practices should be recognized that Islam, which is in accordance with the laws and the laws do not conflict with these laws.
These practices are done in good faith and pleasing to Allah. As a Muslim practice must be to preserve the dignity, family fun, benefit the people and to glorify Allah's earth, as enjoined by Allah SWT.
