What is Zikr (Remembrance) of Allah

What is Zikr (Remembrance) of Allah

Allah's Name (we) begin with, The Compassionate Most Merciful

As Salaatu Was Salaamu Alaika Ya Rasool'Allah
صلٰى الله عليه و سلم

Continuing today with the discussion on Zikr (Remembrance) of Allah, it must be said that the Zikr of Allah undoubtedly cleanses and comforts the heart. We should also know that Zikr e Mustafa Sall Allahu alaihi wa Sallam in reality is also Zikrullah because to remember the Beloved Rasool Sall Allahu alaihi wa Sallam is to remember Allah Almighty, for Rasoolullah Sall Allahu alaihi wa Sallam is the Most Beloved of Allah and with the Zikr of Rasoolullah Sall Allahu alaihi wa Sallam comes the Zikr of Allah.

It has been a practice amongst the Ahle Sunnat to have gatherings of Zikr which most of us call 'Mehfil e Zikr'. These gatherings are very blessed gatherings and a means of assisting us to excel spiritually. We must remember that the Remembrance of Allah brings one closer to the Mercy of Allah and allows our hearts to transform spiritually into powerful spiritual chests of Noor.

It is reported from Hazrat Anas bin Maalik radi Allahu anhu that the Beloved Rasool Sall Allahu alaihi wa Sallam said, 'Qiyaamat will only be established, when there will be none left on the earth saying Allah, Allah (i.e. When none will be left who is in Zikrullah).

Hazrat Zun'noon Misri radi Allahu anhu says, One who remembers Allah in the real sense, then his engrossment in Zikr of Allah causes him to forget everything else, and Almighty Allah Protects everything of his, and this Zikr becomes the best substitute to him for everything else.

These are the blessings of performing Zikr with sincerity and dedication. Why would someone not want to make Zikrullah, after knowing it is what brings him closer to the Mercy of Allah! There are however those who try to divert the True Believers away from the Zikr Mehfils. These people are surely the agents of Shaitaan. We should stay away from all Bud-mazhabs as their company is destructive to our Imaan.
