People think that a righteous man should:
• Stay apart or in a mountain to worship Allah.
• Leave this life behind him.
Such a man we call him Aabed (Worshipper), if worship doesn't affect his behaviors, then he is as Allah says:
"We shall turn to whatever deeds they (disbelievers and polytheists) did, and We shall make such deeds as scattered floating particles of dust." 25-23
They said to the prophet: So and so (a woman) stays up during night, fasts during day, does favors but she causes harm to her neighbors by her tongue, the messenger of Allah said: "There is no good in her, she will go to Hell." They mentioned another woman and said that she only performs the five required prayers and does little favors, but she doesn't cause harm to anybody, he said: "She will go to paradise." 1
So, acts of worship should have fruits and appear in behaviors.
