Islahi Majlis 28/12/2014


Islahi Majlis

Dhikr

Dhikr literally means to remember.

any kind of Tasbeeh is included in Dhikr, whether it's Quran tilawah or remembering Allah's name.

Stay in Dhikr constantly:

فَاذْكُرُونِي أَذْكُرْكُمْ

So remember Me; I will remember you [2:152]

If someone tells you that someone important or someone you love was remembering you, how happy would you become?

How do we know that Allah is remembering us? When we remember Him, He is remembering us.

Hadhrat Thabit Bunani RA was a great scholar. He would say that he knew when Allah would remember him. The people started asking if he had some unusual knowledge. He replied quoting the ayah: فَاذْكُرُونِي أَذْكُرْكُمْ

So remember Me; I will remember you [2:152]

saying his belief in the Quran was very strong.

The one who achieves this will be successful in this world and the hereafter.

We should stay in a clean state so we are able to do Dhikr constantly. We should make sure we don't have an odour.

We should always have the dhikr of SubhanAllah, Alhamdulillah etc on our tongues. Even our mamoolat are included in dhikr.

Masnoon duas are also included in Dhikr:

Once a sahabi came to the prophetﷺ and said that he was having problems at home. The prophet ﷺ replied, when entering the house recite the dua for entering the house, then say salam (whether there is someone present or not), the recite Surah Ikhlas, then any durood shareef.

The sahabi acted upon this and returned to the prophet ﷺ saying that all his problems had stopped.

We should have a habit of reciting the masnoon duas. For example the dua upon awakening, the dua when doing wudhu.

Sleeping habits:

Don't make a habit of sleeping late!

Sleeping at the beginning of the day brings poverty.

In the summer time, some of the time it is necessary to sleep after fajr. But in the winter there is not need to sleep after fajr.

A person who isn't clever will sleep in the morning.

Allah has put barakah in the morning time for this ummah. If you wake early, you will feel as though your day is long. But if you sleep till late, it will feel as though you have less time.

The remembrance of Allah is the sustenance of the soul:

Just like for our bodies use the energy from food, our soul will use the energy from the Dhikr

How to stay away from sin:

Shaytan is very experienced in making us have doubts.

The one who stops remembering Allah, and stops doing dhikr, Shaytan will some to him.

If you stop Dhikr for even a while, Shaytan will come to you.

Friendship with Allah:

When you constantly remember Allah, He will become your friend.

When Allah is your friend you will be content in this world and the hereafter

Hadhrat Gangohi RA had a mureed that was very pious. This pious man would constantly move his lips in Dhikr. The mureed once had an eye illness. He went for his check-up appointment. Then he went the next day for his appointment. Whilst he was in the surgery, he constantly did Dhikr. The doctor said, if you keep on doing this Dhikr, how am I going to operate. He replied saying, he had such a habit he could not stop. The doctor could not operate, and sent him home. The pious person was cured without the operation.

We are not at this stage, but we can at least understand this. This doesn't mean we don't go to the doctors etc, we should still go.

Beware of pride:

We should not develop pride over our deeds. A mureed went to Hazrat Gangohi Rahimahullah and said "my state is not improving because I have to still put the fajr alarm on." Hazrat Gangohi Rahimahullah said "Well did you think the Angels would wake you up? This is pride! The Alarm clock is a means for you to use".
