Zikr e ALLAH!!

The word zikr means remembrance and in the Islamic context, it is used in the sense of remembrance of ALLAH.

How to clean the heart??
The heart is cleaned by the remembrance of ALLAH.

It is said in the hadith:
لِکُلِّ شَیْءٍ ثِقَالَتٌ وَ ثِقَالَتُ الْقُلُوْبِ ذِکْرُ اللہِ
“Everything is polished and the polishing of hearts is the remembrance of ALLAH.”

The one who was deprived of the meaning of zikr was deprived of a comfortable and satisfying life. That is why the believer should always keep his tongue moist with the remembrance of ALLAH.
ALLAH  tells us in the Quran:
يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ ٱذۡكُرُواْ ٱللَّهَ ذِكۡرً۬ا كَثِيرً۬ا

“O you who believe! Remember ALLAH with much remembrance.” (33: 41)

The men and women who remember ALLAH have been specially mentioned in the Quran amongst the categories of people that are dear to ALLAH. We have been told about them:
“And for men and women who engage much in ALLAH ’s remembrance. For them has ALLAH prepared forgiveness and a great reward.” (33: 35)

Our Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (ﷺ) also told us:
“He who remembers his Lord and he who does not are like the living and the dead.” (Bukhari & Muslim)

Those who remember their ALLAH in every situation. Whether it is sorrow or joy, hardship or abundance. ALLAH does not forget them.
ALLAH tells us in the Quran:
“Then remember Me, I will remember you.”(2: 152)


It is vital for our salvation that we remember ALLAH at all times, both in private and when amongst people.

O ALLAH! Purify our heart from hypocrisy and our actions from showing off and our tounge from lying and our eyes from treachery. Indeed you know the treachery of the eyes and what is hidden in the chests. Ameen. Jazak ALLAH🌼
