Your work in life must be your religion, whatever your occupation may be. -- Hazrat Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan

Commentary from Hazrat Murshid Samuel L. Lewis (Sufi Ahmed Murad Chisti):

In other words, your work in life is your Dharma. This is the purpose of every person’s life, for which purpose they sojourn on the earth plane. To divide part of life—dedicating some to God, some to self, some to family or friends—is to misconstrue the purpose of life, which is to seek first that Dharmic purpose and not to divide at all.

There is a great deal of difference between piety and real religion. Piety considers self and God. True religion does not consider self. Even unbelievers who are free from heedlessness and thoughtlessness are on the way to the goal, though they walk backwards or with their eyes closed. By the practice of Darood, a person practices religion at all times.
