Righteousness is the fruit of faith. People who practice religious teachings obediently are called pious people. However, under certain conditions, the Koran actually curses people who practice religious observance (piety). This is because piety only has implications for itself, while the fruit of piety does not affect others.
The Quran criticizes religious egoism. In the Islamic concept, thus, ritual piety (individual) necessitates social piety. People who only pay attention to individual piety, without paying attention to the conditions around them are called people who deny religion. Ritual piety (individual) in Islam must necessitate the growth of social piety, that all worship must have a positive impact on the surrounding community. This is what is known as transformative piety.
