Lord Krishna says in The Bhagavad Gita,
( The Sacred Scripture of Hinduism)

" It is indeed impossible for any embodied being to abstain from work altogether. But he who gives up the fruit of action, he is said to be the Relinquisher."
Chapter xviii- Verse 11

The Gita insists not on the renunciation of actions but on performing duties with renunciation of desire for the fruits of such actions.

" An action which is obligatory, which is performed without attachment, without love or hate by one undesirous of fruit, that is said to be of Goodness." Chapter xviii- Verse 23

Salaam Dearest Sister/Daughter :)

The Sufis say that prayers for others, and not for yourself, are not weighted down by self=interest, and so float effortlessly to God. So serve others even in prayer.

Ya Haqq!
