Meaning of Ikhlaas

The origin and the root of all good is Ikhlaas (pure sincerity), i.e. that the slave directs all worship and seeking of assistance purely towards his Lord, as in Allaah’s Statements:
“You alone we worship and Your aid alone we seek.” [1:5]
and
”…then worship Him, and put your trust in Him..” [11:123]
and
”…in Him I trust and unto Him I turn..” [11:88]
and
“…then seek sustenance from Allaah and serve Him, and be grateful to Him [29:17]
