Abu Hafsat Posted September 16, 2020 Report Share Posted September 16, 2020 As-Salaam alaikum, In this matter of Remembering Allah always and/or Tazkiyyatu-Nafs, Dhikr (Zikr) is another name for Purification. As the Zakkat (wealth tax in Islam) purifies the wealth, similarly Zikr purifies man's self. As soap cleanses the piece of cloth, so does Zikr cleans the heart. As fire eats away the fuel, so the Zikr takes away the sins of a man who invokes Allah Ta'ala. As the rain makes the withered grass green and olive so does the zikr to man. What light does to darkness, so does zikr to man... it lightens darkness. So, let us be among the Zakirunallah Kathiraan. Don't you see that when the Qur'an was revealed, it was when Allah says:-- "Read in the Name of your Lord who created" (96:1).... thus the Qur'an was first revealed with the Name of Allah, that is, invocation of Allah. Even at the time of death, one should invoke Allah: La ilaha illa Allah, Muhammad-ur-Rasulullah... all this is Zikrullah. In the grave too, the angels inquire about Name of Allah...... Jallah-Jalalahu. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
