Ramadan Companion E-Course Lesson 12 of 30


Dhikr In  The Hadith –  Part  I

 1.On the authority of Abu Hurayrah [Radiyallaahu `Anhu – May Allah be pleased with him] who narrated that the Messenger of Allah [Rasuulullaahi Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam – Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him] said:

“Almighty Allah says:

‘I treat my servant according to his expectations of Me, and I am with him when he remembers Me. If he remembers Me in his heart, I remember him in My heart. If he remembers Me in a gathering, I remember him in a better and nobler gathering (i.e. of angels). If he comes closer to Me by one span, I go towards him by a cubit’s length. If he comes towards Me by a cubit’s length, I go towards him an arm’s length. And if he comes to Me walking, I go to him running. [1]

[ Reported by Imam Al-Bukhari, Muslim, Ahmad, At-Tirmidhi,

 An-Nasā-i, Ibn Mājah, Al- Bayhaqi ]

2. On the authority of Abdullah Ibn Busr [ R.A.] who narrated that a man said:  “O Messenger of Allah [S], I know that the commandments of the Shari`ah are many, but tell me of something which I may do constantly.”

The Holy Prophet [S] said

                “Keep your tongue busy (moist) with Dhikrullaah.” [2]

            LĀ YAZĀLU LISĀNUKA RATBAN MIN DHIKRILLĀH

[ Reported by Imam Ahmad, At-Tirmidhi, Ibn Mājah, Al-Hākim, and Al-Bayhaqi ]

3. On the authority of Abu Dardaa [R.A.] who narrated that the Messenger of Allah [S] said (to his companions):

“Shall I not tell you of something that is the best of all deeds, constitute the best act of piety in the eyes of your Lord, will elevate your status in the Hereafter, carries more virtue than spending gold and silver in the path of Allah, and is better than taking part in Jihad and killing your enemies or being killed ?”

They (the companions) said: “Most certainly (O Messenger of Allah).”

He replied:

“It is DHIKRULLAAH – The Remembrance of Allah.” [3]
