Ibadahâ€ means â€œworship.â€ The term is, however, much more general than the English word â€œworship.â€ It is applied both to specific religious observances such as the prayer, fasting etc. and, much more generally, to any action done for the pleasure of Allah alone. Thus, eating, drinking and interacting with others done with the proper intention are ibadah and one will be rewarded for them.
All acts of worship. Any permissible action performed with the intention to obey Allah.
