    Default The Importance and Virtues of Zikrullah (Rememberance of Allah)

    Allah says in the Qur'an "Remember Allah abundantly, in order that you become successful"
    Quran (Surah 8: Verse 45)

    "Only in the remembrance of Allah (swt) will your heart find peace"
    Quran (Surah 13: Verse 28)

    "Those men and women who engage much in Allah's praise. for them Allah has prepared forgiveness and a Great Reward"
    Quran (Surah 33: Verse 35)

    "When any group of men remember Allah, angels surround them and mercy covers them, tranquility descends upon them, and Allah mentions them to those who are with Him." (Muslim)

    We also know that remembering Allah is of the greatest deed:

    "The rememebrence of Allah (swt) is the greatest (deed)"
    Quran (Surah 29: Verse 45)

    and of the the worst things we can do is not to remember Allah:

    "Satan has mastered them and caused them to forget the Remembrance of Allah. Those are satan's party; and satan's party shall assuredly be the losers"
    Quran (Surah 58: Verse 19)

    "Whosoever turns away from the Remembrance of Allah, He will hurl him into a stern punishment".
    Quran (Surah 72: Verse 17)

    "Whosoever turns away from My remembrance, his life will be made tight and narrow on the Day of Resurrection We shall raise him blind"
    Quran (Surah 20: Verse 124)

    Allah tells us to remember him no matter what we do whether that be lying or sitting down:

    "They are the most wise who remember Allah, standing sitting and lying down"
    Quran (Surah 4: Verse 190)

    We should remember Allah no matter what we are doing and we should ALWAYS try to keep our tongues moist with his rememberance and glorification. However we cannot glorify him in the toilet.

    That is why we are recommended to haste in doing whatever we have to do in the toilet so that we can continue to add to our good deed accounts.

    The tongue is connected to the heart and we should try not to merely get into the habit of glorifying him with only the tongue but we should try and make connection to the heart whenever we are glorifying and praising him.

    All good deeds are not rewarded the same. They are dependant upon how much sincerety and khushoo a person has whilst doing the good action as well as the intention of the good act.

    So we should all endevour to try and make a connection from our tongues to our hearts especially in Salah and try not to make our minds wonder elsewhere otherwise it is said that we are robbing our Salah and therefore lessening the reward for it. Same way with zikr we should make a connection with the heart to get the full benefits from zikr aswell as more of a reward from it.

    Here are some very beneficial Zikr's that we can all do especially in the remaining days of this Ramadhan and throughout the year everyday and we should try to every minute and second.

    Some beneficial dhikr include:

    Subhan'Allah- 'Praise be to Allah'
    Al-Hamdullilah- 'Thanks be to Allah'
    Allahu Akbar'Allah is the Greatest.'
    La ila ha illallah- There is no worthy of worship except allah

    Abu haraira(ra) Narrates: Prophet(saw) said: whoever says: Subhanallahi Wa Bihamdihi – (I deem Allah free of any resemblances to anything whatever in any repeat, and I glorify his praises) one hundred times a day will have his sins forgiven even though they may be as much as the foam of the sea – (Bukhari,b73:c19)

    Another naration says a date palm will be planted for him in Paradise (Tirmidhi)

    Read much of this Zikr:

    Subhaan-Allahi walhamdu-lillaahi, wa laa ilaa-ha illa-la ill-lal-lahu wallahu Akbar, walaa haula wala quoow-wata illa billa hil-Aliyyil-azeem.

    "Glory is for Allaah and all Praise is due to Allah. There is none worthy of worship except Allaah. Allaah is the greatest. There is no power and no strength except with Allaah the Most High, the Great."

    Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) said: "Is anyone of you incapable of earning one thousand Hasanah (rewards) a day?" Someone from the gathering asked, "How can anyone of us earn a thousand Hasanah?" Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) said: "Glorify Allah a hundred times by just saying “Subhanallah” and a Good deeds will be written for you, or a thousand sins will be wiped away.”
    [Muslim 4:2073]

    Hadhrat Abu Dharr [Ra] narrated that Rasulallah [Saw] said: “Should I not tell you of one treasure of the unlimited treasures of Paradise?” I replied spontaneously “Oh Rasulallah (Saw) that would be an honour indeed!” Rasulallah (Saw) said: “That rare treasure is LA HAWLA WA LA QUWWATA ILLA BILLAH.” (“The strength to do good and to refrain from evil comes from the grace and mercy of Allah!”) - (Ibn Majah)

    A Phrase that Comes with Rewards in the Millions:

    On the authority of Abdullah ibn ‘Umar that the Prophet said,”Whoever enters a market and says:

    ‘Laa ilaaha ill Allah waHdahu laa shareeka lah, lahul mulku wa lahul Hamdu yuHyi wa yumeetu wa huwa Hayyun laa yamoot, bi yadihil khayr, wahuwa ‘alaa kulli shay’in qadeer’

    {There is nothing worthy of worship but Allah, He is alone without partner, to Him belongs the dominion and the praise, he causes life and death and He is the Living One and will never die. In His Hand is all good, and He is over all things capable.}

    Allah will write for him a million good deeds, erase a million of his bad deeds and build for him a house in Jannah .”And in another narration, which is also classed as hasan, instead of mentioning that Allah will build a house in Jannah, it states,”and he will be raised one million levels.” {Tirmidhi}.


    Also:

    Earn OVER One Million good deeds in just 5 minutes this Ramdhan



    Its VERY easy to Earn 500 good deeds a day in Ramadhan.



    If you were to manage 500 good deeds every day of Ramadan, you would receive (70 times 500 = 35000) multiplied by 30 days..........1,050,000 deeds! One million fifty thousand deeds!





    Just say Subhanallah 100 times, Alhamdullilah 100 times, Allahu Akbar 100 times, La ilaha il Allah 100 times and Astaghfar allah 100 times.



    Imagine how much we can earn by doing MUCH more than this!

    Also:

    Heres another BRILLIAAANT one whenever you go the the market. In modern day terms if you ever go to the shops, supermarket, high street or shopping centre or mall:

    On the authority of Abdullah ibn ‘Umar that the Prophet said,”Whoever enters a market and says:

    ‘Laa ilaaha ill Allah waHdahu laa shareeka lah, lahul mulku wa lahul Hamdu yuHyi wa yumeetu wa huwa Hayyun laa yamoot, bi yadihil khayr, wahuwa ‘alaa kulli shay’in qadeer’

    There is nothing worthy of worship but Allah, He is alone without partner, to Him belongs the dominion and the praise, he causes life and death and He is the Living One and will never die. In His Hand is all good, and He is over all things capable.}

    Allah will write for him a million good deeds, erase a million of his bad deeds and build for him a house in Jannah .”And in another narration, which is also classed as hasan, instead of mentioning that Allah will build a house in Jannah, it states,”and he will be raised one million levels.” {Tirmidhi}.

    Abu Sa’id (ra) said that Rasullilah (salalahi alahi wasalam) said, “Whoever says:

    Radeetu billahi rabban, wa bil-Islaami deenan, wa bi-Muhammadin rasoolan

    Jannah becomes obligatory for him (to enter). [Abu-Dawud]

    - Best said in Morning and Evening with "Nabiyan wa rasoolan"

    The Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi Wa Salam one day said to Ali Radi Allaho Anho: Ya Ali! Do these five things before going to bed at night:

    1. Give 4000 Dinaars in Sadaqa and then sleep
    2. Read one complete Quran and then sleep
    3. Pay the price for Janna'h and then sleep
    4.. Make two people happy with each other when they are upset and then sleep
    5. Do one hajj and then sleep


    The Prayer (Salaah) where Miswaak is used is 70 times more rewarding that the prayer (Salaah) that Miswak is not used (Hazrat Ayesha- Mishkat)

    So in this month thats 70x70= 4,900 times more rewward for each Salaah! Subhanallah

    So lets get brushinggg

    There is not much time left in this blessed month so lets do as much as we can for every deed is multiplied by SOOOO MUCH!!

    Please remember me in your duas.
