Worshipping in Islam includes many deeds, let us take the daily 5 prayers alone as an example: Every day a Muslim has to pray to Allah 5 times, during each prayer he mentio…ns the Glorious name of Allah many times, he thanks Allah for His favours, he recites verses from the Holy Quran, he prostrates to Allah & supplicates to Him, he asks Allah to help him in each detail of his life. This strong connection with Allah will be clearly reflected in the behaviours of the Muslim, even if he makes a mistake he will return to Allah very soon, in the next prayer for example or maybe sooner than its time he will ask Allah for his mercy & forgiveness & consequently he will hasten to repair,to admit his guilt, to declare his repentance from what he did ,then he will hurry up to apologize to whom he had oppressed & give them back all their rights. So, this way he will be in a permanent repentance & in a great feeling of being closer to Allah as well as being kind,respectful & fair with others. Allah says in the Holy Quran: " Recite what is sent of the Book by inspiration to thee, and establish regular Prayer: for Prayer restrains from shameful and unjust deeds; and remembrance of Allah is the greatest (thing in life) without doubt. And Allah knows the (deeds) that ye do. " ( chapter 29, verse 45 ). Al-'Ankabut (The Spider) (MORE)

Roman Catholic Answer The only faith established by God, the Catholic faith. The Jewish faith was also established by God, but it was fulfilled and completed in Christianity…, so it is no longer the current covenant with God. All other faiths are inventions of men. Correct Answer Nearly every faith (at least, of those in which there even is a god) claims this is true of it and no other. Vide supra. You'll have to judge among these competing claims for yourself.
