rememberingallah

There are hundreds of benefits associated with Dhikr - the act of rehearsing and celebrating the praises of Allāh.

As Ibn Al Qayyim says in his book Kitabul-Adhkâr;

Dhikr drives away Shaitān, pleases Allāh the All Merciful, and replaces pain and sorrow of the heart with peace, happiness and contentment.

It strengthens the heart and body, illuminates the countenance and the heart, leads one to prosperity, and is itself a raiment of awe, splendor and glory. It then nurtures the love of Allāh in the heart of the believer and draws the worshipper near to Him. Allāh throws open the doors of understanding for the worshipper engaged to it (dhikr).

There is a knot in the heart that cannot be undone, except by Dhikr.

Muhammad ﷺ said;

“One who remembers Allāh in seclusion and weeps will remain in the shadow of Allāh on the day when there is no shade but His.” 

Here are 25 Private Devotions for Morning and Evening;
