Bismillah. Alhamdulilah. Wa Salam ala Rasuullah. When it comes to Fiqh, have heard people often break up our actions into "Muamalat" and not "Ibadat". I would like to know from where these 2 terms have been derived and how our actions can be categorized into each . For example is our marriage fall under "Muamalat" or "Ibadat"? What about eating? What about using the restroom? What about our time with our spouses at night? How and where do you draw the distinction?
I would like to know the specific hadith or ayah which breaks up our actions into these 2 categories. Do not just tell me that this is what the scholars have done. The scholars are not an evidence by themselves.
From what I know this entire distinction is a bida.The Prophet (saw) and the Sahabah never broke actions into these 2 separate categories. For them everything was Ibadat. From their business, to their government, to their social interactions, to their prayer. And the linguistic deifinition of the Ibadat means "slavehood" and not "worship" as it is commonly mistranslated. So how is it that you can be a slave to Allah (swt) in some areas of your life and not in others? When there are specific hadith where the Prophet (saw) has taught you how to buy and sell and do business, how then can you not consider this as Ibadat?
Jazak Allah Khair.
