    First, what does that mean to do something purely (khalisatann) for Allah?

    Secondly, human is a social animal. To socialize is a part of human. And in worship acts like to pray in congregation, even though to pray in the Mosque or in congregation is not obligatory, a person feels better than praying alone. That can be because of spirituality of mosque or there after prayer people meet other people. So even if someone may feel not to go to pray in mosque someday but because of socialization one may go. So would it still remain an act purely for God or what?

    It is our intention that should be pure while performing an act that is to be performed to please God that it should be only to please Him and none’s pleasure other than Him is intended.

    Since God has preferred for us the congregational prayer, its socialization is a secondary benefit of it. Our primary goal should be to please God, while this secondary benefit may come along with it.
