Illuminating Vision for Moderate Muslims

Importance of Namaz, Zikr and Living a Blessed Life

اسلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

صلي الله علي محمد صلي الله عليه وسلم

Please listen to the messages in the clips below about importance of Namaz, Zikr and leaving sinful life and share with friends and family. We all as Muslims need to make our best effort to live this life in accordance with the teachings of Quran-e-Kareem and Sunnah of our Beloved Rasoolullah (Sallullaho Alaihi Wassallam). If we are serious to make an effort (Insha’Allah) then the first step is to offer five daily prayers with full commitment, perform Zikr such as Kalimah-e-Tayyiba, Durood-e-Pak, Istigfar to the best of our abilities and be good in our affairs and relations with parents, family, friends etc. This effort will In’shaa’Allah lead us to meet our obligation of Haqooq’Allah and Haqooqul’Eibad.

If we assume our life to be a car, then the example of Haqooq’Allah is like the engine and Haqooqul’Eibad as gas/fuel. So if we are not caring for both Haqooq’Allah and Haqooqul’Eibad then, are we not fooling our ownself and putting ourselves in the greatest danger and making a wishful thinking to be driving to a blessed destination. So we all must offer five daily prayers, adopt some daily Zikr and live a life of good manners.

IMPORTANCE AND UNDERSTANDING OF ZIKR
Zikr ( remembrance of Allah) is the greatest thing in our life and a well tried excellent method for purification of our heart. It eradicates all diseases from heart, produces in it the love of Allah Almighty and creates the consciousness of His Almighty’s Greatness; it brings us divine peace and satisfaction. Allah the Almighty Himself asked us to remember Him (Almighty) as much as possible. Says the Holy Quran:
” O ye who believes remember Allah Almighty very often and glorify Him (Almighty) morning and evening.” (33:41-2)
” O ye who believe ! Let not your wealth and your children distract you from rembracne of Allah Almighty. (63:9)
” And when Salaat is finished then ye may disperse through the land and seek of the Bounty of Allah and celebrate the Praises of Allah much and often; they ye may prosper (here as well as in the next world.) (62-10)
” Behold in the Remembrance of Allah Almighty do hearts find satisfaction.” (13-28)
” O ye who believe let not your riches or your children divert you from the Remembrance of Allah Almighty if any act thus, the loss is their own.” (63:9)
” Men whom neither traffic nor merchandise can divert from Remembrance of Allah Almighty nor from regular Salaat, nor from regular practice of Zakaat.” (24-37)
” Then do ye remember Me I will remember you.” (2-152)

The Beloved Holy Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam) says:

“Allah Almighty says when anyone remembers Me (Almighty) and his lips move in Zikr I (Almighty) am by his side.”
” There is a polish for everything, for the hearts it is Zikr of Allah Almighty.”
” Those who remember Allah Almighty and those who do not are like those who are alive and those who are dead.” (i.e. who remember Allah Almighty and celebrate, His praises are alive and those who do not are dead.)

The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam) was once asked who would be the most exalted among the servants of Allah Almighty on the Last Day, He (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam) replied ” Those who remember Allah Almighty, be they men or women.”

The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) once advised one of his companions. ” Keep your tongue always employed in repeating the name of Allah Almighty.”

Negligence towards Zikr causes more and more retrogression. Those who close their hearts and tongues to Allah Almighty are deprived of all divine virtues, their hearts get hardened and they – become close associates of the devils. Look what the Holy Quran says: ” He who turns away from the remembrance of His Lord (Almighty), He (Almighty) will cause him to undergo a severe Penalty.” (72-17)

In another verse it has been sad: ” If anyone withdraws himself from the Remembrance of Allah Almighty Who is Most Gracious, He (Almighty) will appoint for him an evil one to be intimate companion to him” ( 43-36)

In another verse it has been said: ” Woe to those whose hearts are hardened against remembering of Allah Almighty, they are manifestly wandering” (39-22)

The highest and the required degree of Zikr is to acquire such a solemn state of mind and heart in which we remain continuously full of remembrance of Allah Alimighty and be never without His Almighty thought. The state of permanent and all pervading Allah Almighty’s consciousness is achieved only through continuously engaging the tongue and heart in Zikr and devout servant of Allah Almighty no doubt, achieve this state. The daily five Salaats are no doubt the remembrance of Allah Almighty but Zikr has got a wider sense. It includes all sorts of the praises, be they with tongue or heart i.e. Salaats, the recitation of Holy Quran, the other prayers, the repetition of His (Almighty) sacred names and devoted contemplation on the signs of Allah Almighty and the like come under Zikr.

We are surrounded by evil forces that are trying to deviate us from the right path. To save ourselves from their grips we must remember Allah Almighty in every possible way. The more we remember Him (Almighty) the more benefited we are. The real Zikr is that in whatever profession, state or cirumstances a Muslim may be, he should do his best to observe the commandments of Allah Almighty that are intended for such a situation.

Thus whoever observes the commandments of Allah Almighty applicable to any given time under all circumstances and observe his responsibilities toward his family and in other worldly affairs like buying and selling, carries out the Zikr of Allah Almighty even while engages in them.

Zikr of Allah Almighty is a great blessing. For reference please read Chapter 2_Virtues of Remembrance of Allah Almighty of post – “Hidayat-ul-Ummah” at www.ivision4mm.wordpress.com or https://ivision4mm.files.wordpress.com/2011/08/2_virtues-of-rememberance-of-Allah-Almighty_Hidayat-ul-Ummah.pdf to understand and practice remembrance of Allah Almighty in our individual and collective life.

Please also read a blessed message about Zikr below and visit the website: http://www.babajanisarkar.com/

Please make an effort to join closest collective Zikr or have Zikr in your friends circle or at home or individual but consider Zikr an important aspect of your daily life to the best of your abilities and circumstances. Consider Zikr such as Quran Recitation, Tasbihaat, Kalimah-e-Tayyiba, Durood-e-Pak, Istigfaar …..
Jazak’Allahu’Khaira
