important aspect of Islam
Dhikr is an important aspect of Islam . Utterings of ‘La illaha IlAllah’ ‘Alhamdulillah’ Allahu Akbar’ ‘SubhanAllah’ – Each of these is a statement of faith.
Every time you say these adhkar (utterances of remembrance) , you are shining a ray of light in your heart and it illuminates your heart.
Remembrance of Allah is so great because the very essence of worship is to remember Allah (SWT). It has many benefits:
1) Instills the conscious of Allah.
2) Deepens one’s faith.
3) Propels one towards piety because one would be mindful of one’s limits and the limits of Allah set by the Shari’ah. (Islamic law)
4) Brings our worship and worldly deeds to life.
Engage in the remembrance of Allah and you will grow in your faith.
The Quran states : Verily, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest.
(Qur’an 13: 28)
