Allah takes the souls at the time of their death, and those that do not die [He takes] during their sleep. Then He keeps those for which He has decreed death and releases the others for a specified term. Indeed in that are signs for a people who give thought. [Az Zumar 39:42]
Allah’s Apostle (Sallallähu alaihi wa sallam) said, “The angels keep on asking for Allah’s Blessing and Forgiveness for anyone of you as long as he is at his Musalla (praying place) and does not do Hadath (passes wind).
The angels say, ‘O Allah! Forgive him and be Merciful to him.’ Each one of you is in the prayer as long as he is waiting for the prayer and nothing but the prayer detains him from going to his family.”
Dhikr of Allah is the most excellent act. It is the most praiseworthy work to earn Allah’s pleasure. Prophet said that the People of Paradise will only regret one thing: not having made enough dhikr in the world!.
: “O Believers, make abundant mention of ALLAH!” (33:41). “He is successful who purifies himself, and remembers the name of his Lord, and so prays.” (87:14-15). Prophet said, Peace be upon him: “The earth and everything in it is cursed, except for dhikr and what attends dhikr, and a teacher (of dhikr) and a student (of dhikr).”
By remembering Allah, truly satisfaction comes to the heart” (13:28). Prophet said: “(I am advising you in one thing:) Keep your tongue always moist with dhikrullah .”
Prophet said: “(I am advising you in one thing:) Keep your tongue always moist with dhikrullah .”
The Prophet once asked his companions: “Shall I tell you about the best of all deeds, the best act of piety in the eyes of your Lord, which will elevate your status in the Hereafter, and carries more virtue than the spending of gold and silver in theservice of Allah or taking part in jihad and slaying or being slain in the path of Allah? The dhikr of Allah.”
The Prophet was asked, “Which of the servants of Allah is best in rank before Allah on the Day of resurrection?” He said: “The ones who remember him much.” I said: “O Messenger of Allah, what about the fighter in the way of Allah?” He answered: “Even if he strikes the unbelievers and mushrikin with his sword until it broke, and becomes red with their blood, truly those who do dhikr are better than him in rank.”
“Remember Me, and I shall remember you” (2:152). Prophet said that Allah has angels roaming the roads to find the people of dhikr.
Allah says: I am to my servant as he expects of Me, I am with him when he remembers Me. If he remembers Me in his heart, I remember him to Myself, and if he remembers me in an assembly,I mention him in an assembly better than his…”
“Remember / mention Allah as much as you want, until people say that you are crazy and foolish”
“What are the gardens of Paradise, O Messenger of Allah?” He replied: “The circles of dhikr. There are roaming angels of Allah who go about looking for the circles of dhikr, and when they find them they surround them closely.”
“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.”
“O you who believe! Celebrate the praises of Allah, and do so often; and glorify Him morning and evening.” (33:41-42).
the Prophet told him, “Let your tongue be always busy with the remembrance of Allah.”
“Those men and women who engage much in Allah’s praise. For them has Allah prepared forgiveness and a great reward.” (3:191, 33:35.
remembrance of Allah is the greatest thing in life, without doubt.” (29:45)
with the heart remember Allah, secretly from creation, wordlessly and speechlessly. That remembrance is best of all.
Allah will say: O my servant, I have something good of yours for which I alone will reward you, it is your hidden remembrance of Me.”
“Seven people will be shaded by Allah…” The seventh is: “A person who remembers Allah in seclusion (dhakara Allaha khaaliyan) and his eyes get flooded with tears.”
“Isolation is better than to be sociable in committing evil.”
Prophet said: “If anyone recites the last two verses of Surat al- Baqara at night (2:285-286), they will suffice for him.”
That is, these two verses will bring him a reward equivalent to that of a night prayer, and will safeguard him from any hurt during that night surat al-Ikhlas] is a third of the Qur’an.”
Prophet said: “Whoever says: la ilaha illallahu wahdahu la sharikalah, lahu al-mulku wa lahu al-hamd, wa huwa `ala kulli shay’in qadir
— a hundred times a day will have a reward equivalent to the reward for freeing ten slaves. In addition, a hundred good deeds will be recorded for him and a hundred bad deeds of his will be wiped off, and it will be a safeguard for him from Satan that day until evening, and no one will be better in deeds than such a person except he who does more than that.”
“Whoever says: subhan Allah wa bi hamdihi — Glorified is Allah with all praise to Him — a hundred times during a day, will have all his sins wiped off even if they were as numerous as the foam on the surface of the sea.”
Prophet: “O human beings! Whoever says “No god except Allah” in astonishment at something, Allah creates from each letter of his utterance a tree with as many leaves as the days of this world, each leaf asking forgiveness for him and praising Allah on his behalf until the Day of judgment.”
So lets remember Allah without wasting even a second.
Allah knows the best.
Here is the parable of Paradise which the God-fearing have been promised: in it shall be rivers of incorruptible water, rivers of milk
unchanging in taste, and rivers of wine, a delight to those that drink; and rivers of pure honey. In it they will have every kind of fruit as well as
forgiveness from their Lord. Can such be like those who will abide in the Fire and will be given a boiling water to drink that will tear their bowels apart? (47:15)
