Remembering Allah while Laying and Sitting

Source : SeekingIlm / 28 Apr 2014

With the name of Allah. The Beneficent, The Merciful

As We were reading the Al-Adhkaar of Imam An-Nawawi (rahimahullah) we came across the following hadith:

‏ ‏حَدَّثَنَا‏ ‏حَامِدُبْنُيَحْيَى‏ ‏حَدَّثَنَا‏ ‏أَبُوعَاصِمٍ‏ ‏عَنْ‏ ‏ابْنِعَجْلَانَ‏ ‏عَنْ‏ ‏الْمَقْبُرِيِّ‏ ‏عَنْ‏ ‏أَبِيهُرَيْرَةَ‏ ‏قَالَ‏ قَالَرَسُولُاللَّهِ‏ ‏صَلَّىاللَّهُعَلَيْهِوَسَلَّمَ‏ ‏مَنْاضْطَجَعَمَضْجَعًالَمْيَذْكُرْاللَّهَتَعَالَىفِيهِإِلَّاكَانَعَلَيْهِ‏ ‏تِرَةً‏ ‏يَوْمَالْقِيَامَةِوَمَنْقَعَدَمَقْعَدًالَمْيَذْكُرْاللَّهَعَزَّوَجَلَّفِيهِإِلَّاكَانَعَلَيْهِ‏ ‏تِرَةً‏ ‏يَوْمَالْقِيَامَةِ‏

 

Loud Zikr

General loud dhikr is clearly proven from many Ahadith.

See the following Hadith:

 

On the types of Zikr (remembrance of God)

There are two degrees of this recollection of God. The first degree is that of those saints whose thoughts are altogether absorbed in the contemplation of the majesty of God, and have no room in their hearts for anything else at all. This is the lower degree of recollection for when a man's heart is fixed and his limbs are so controlled by his heart that they abstain from even lawful actions, he has no need of any device or safeguard against sins. It was to this kind of recollection that the Prophet referred when he said, "He who rises in the morning with only God in his mind, God shall look after him, both in this world and the next." Some of these recollectors of God are so absorbed in the thought of Him that, if people speak to them they do not hear, or walk in front of them they do not see, but stumble as if they collided with a wall.

 

Best remembrance of Allah - La ilaha illa Allah

Source : Islamic Children Study / 14 Apr 2014

Bismi Allahir Rahmanir Raheem. All praise is for Allah, the Most High, the Lord of the Worlds. Allah's Peace and Blessings be upon all the Prophets of Allah, especially our Holy Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu 'alaihi wa aalihi wa as-haabihi wa sallam).

 

Zikr of Allah

Source : Islamicacademy.org / 14 Mar 2013

Abu Darda (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that Rasool Allah ﷺ said,“Should I not tell you of such a thinga which are the best and purest deeds in the court of your Lord, high in ranks (darajat), better for you then spending gold and silver (in Allah’s path), and better than slaying the neck of the enemy during war? The Sahaba said, “Yes, Oh Rasool Allah !”  He said,“It is Zikr of Allah.” (Tirmizi)

 

Too busy to Pray Five Times?

By Daliah Merzaban / 25 Feb 2013

Before I genuinely began to cultivate and nurture my relationship with God, I regarded the five daily prayers that Islam enjoins on believers as laborious. It seemed impractical to expect that I would be able to stop what I was doing during my busy work schedule to take time out and pray.

Working as a news wire journalist, I was often spending upwards of 10 hours a day in the office or at conferences, interviews and meetings, barely able to make time for a lunch break. If I wasn't working, my time was divided between house chores, errands, family and friends, and exercise. I was punctual with everything in my life, except that I was late five times a day.

 

Gatherings of Dhikr

Dhikr of Allah is the most excellent act of Allah’s servants and is stressed over a hundred times in the Holy Qur’an. It is the most praiseworthy work to earn Allah’s pleasure, the most effective weapon to overcome the enemy, and the most deserving of deeds in reward. It is the flag of Islam, the polish of hearts, the essence of the science of faith, the immunisation against hypocrisy, the head of worship, and the key of all success.
