ABOUT UMMAH WELFARE TRUST

Recent decades have seen this final Ummah encounter
unprecedented trials and calamities. Millions who have
taken Allah as their Lord and His Messenger f|| as their
guide have suffered and perished amidst continuous
wars, natural disasters and enforced poverty.

Since 2001, Ummah Welfare Trust has been working to
fulfil the rights of those suffering by providing assistance
in areas of nutrition, education, health, shelter, income
and spiritual well-being.

Alhamdulillah, the relief and succour brought to the lives

of millions of our brothers and sisters has been made
possible thanks to the generosity of Ummah Welfare
Trust's donors. May their Sadaqah increase them in

provisions, repel oncoming evils, and be a shade for

them on the Day of Judgement.

The charity asks Allah to accept its own small efforts and
enable it to increase assistance to the Ummah of His

Beloved Messenger §§>. May He, Who is a refuge for the
weak and oppressed, remove the difficulties of the
Ummah, strengthen its resolve, and restore its honour.
May the condition of the Muslims be rectified and the

Truth prevail throughout the lands. Amin.

INTRODUCTION .

Engaging in dhikr (the remembrance of Allah) is a means of achieving this. May peace and blessings be upon the Prophets.” (Bukhari) In the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah fH. Allah says: “Remember Me. one finds was constantly engaged that despite his lofty status. to obey Him and to submit to Him. who bestowed upon us the gift of remembering Him. the Companions and the Righteous. 2:152) Similarly. the Messenger of Allah fH said: “The parable of the one who remembers his Lord and the one who does not is like the parable of the living and the dead.” (Quran. and I will remember You. The believers ultimate purpose in this life is to worship The Almighty. Muhammad fi|. May peace and blessings be upon the best of creation. he . to love Him. who blessed us with His beautiful words so that we may know Him and who brought comfort to our hearts by enabling us to worship Him. virtues and power of dhikr. PREFACE Praise be to Allah. The Quran and Sunnah are replete with the superior status.

This concise book of adhkar aims to highlight the established and indispensable daily adhkar prescribed by the Messenger of Allah f||.in numerous forms of dhikr and encouraged the Ummah to do the same. In addition to the general forms of adhkar. It concludes with the fifth chapter titled ‘The Remedy’. the book begins with the above three chapters. the evil eye and magic. the translation of the adhkar and their virtues where applicable have been included. From these adhkar. Ummah Welfare Trust humbly requests its readers to benefit from this free publication as they journey to the . and the adhkar after the fardh prayers. Special attention was given to the morning and evening adhkar to revive this oft-neglected Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah f||. which are found in the authentic sources. which consists of adhkar related to the cure and treatment of illnesses. the scholars have stressed the importance of reading the daily morning and evening adhkar. the adhkar before sleep. followed by the fourth chapter consisting of general daily adhkar. For the benefit of the readers. Thus. the Messenger of Allah ^ prescribed specific adhkar for specific times throughout the day and night.

The charity prays to Almighty Allah that He grants us the ability to be consistent with the daily adhkar. encourages modesty.' (Ibn al-Qayyim . and leads to fear and self-examination.Hereafter by remembering and supplicating to Allah with that which most pleases Him. inspires love. enable us to live our lives in ubudiyyah (servitude) to Him and protect us from the trials and tribulations of this world and the Hereafter. It keeps one from falling short in obedience to Him and prevents one from taking sins lightly. May He make us amongst those who remember Him frequently. Amin. Ummah Welfare Trust Sha ban 143 7/ May 2016 'Dhikr of the heart leads one to know Allah.

Contemplation is the objective of dhikr. conscious. Thus. the correct and preferred view is that one should elongate saying “<dil Mi *11 M” in order to contemplate upon it/ Dhikr is of two types: DHIKR OF THE TONGUE & HEART habitual vs. he is M DHIKR OF THE TONGUE constantly thinking Si about the wonders of creation. r ^1 and only one of these types will bring about Allah's recognition. one should contemplate on what one is saying and try to understand its meaning. Imam al-NawawI £& writes: ‘The purpose of dhikr is to remember Allah with the presence of the heart. illustrates ‘The heedless one & DHIKR OF THE HEART says ‘Subhanallah’ out of habit. HOW TO REMEMBER ALLAH In his masterpiece al-Adhkar’. As for the - conscious one. or the . It is extremely important that every person aims for this and strives to achieve it. for example. This is why. Ibn al-jawzl this: $1. just as it is the objective of reciting Quran.

for which the one who utters it receives reward. and this thinking drives him to say 'Subhanallah.' So. In addition to uttering it. As for the heedless. this tasbih is the fruit of these thoughts. if he also remembers with his heart.. The fruit of this thought is that they say Astaghfirullah’. Likewise. 2. and this leads them to ponder. they think about the ugliness of past sins.awesome nature of the Creator. Hence. to have anxiety and to have regret. and it is not necessary for this that he understands or recalls its meaning (as long as he does not intend other than its meaning). and this is the tasbih of the conscious.*. / (Sayd al-Khatir) However. they merely utter these out of habit. Dhikr can be of the tongue. Is there even a point?’ Ibn Hajar's <£& excellent response provides a deep insight regarding this matter: T. then this is more complete. This is the true tasbih and istighfar. And what a difference there is between the two types. complete contemplation from the heart may not be possible for everyone at all times. . sometimes Shaytan casts doubts into an individual’s heart and one may think: ‘I am uttering ’Subhanallah’ a hundred times but I am not thinking about it.

If one remembers Allah in any other state it is still permissible. it will become easy to neglect it at its proper time. this is even more complete. If one is consistent in practising it. ought to make it up when he is able to. be it an obligatory prayer or striving in Allah's path. so as not to neglect it. he will not find himself missing it. If he is sitting somewhere. 5.' (al-Adhkar) SMiiiiiiiiiiBiiiiaiBgBgpiiiiiiaiaiiBiBiil 7 [jj|||||jj . 3. without any disapproval. 4. such as magnifying Allah and exalting Him from defects.' (Fath al-Bari) Imam al-Nawawi further states: Anyone making dhikr should be in the most perfect state. etc. The next stage is the recollection of the meaning of the dhikr and what it entails. And if the above is combined with complete devotion and sincerity. An even loftier stage would be if all this takes place inside a good deed.' Anyone who has a daily litany of dhikr (wird) in the night or day or after Salah or any other time. he should face the qiblah with humility and serenity. but if there is no excuse for doing so. but if he is lax in fulfilling it. then that is the utmost level of dhikr. and then misses it and later remembers it. one would be forfeiting something most excellent. bowing one's head.

THE BENEFITS OF DHIKR Pleases Allah Allah remembers you Brings you close to Allah Wards off the devils Removes worries of heart Comforts the believer Brings provision Gives life to the heart Erases sins and protects Nourishes the soul from punishment Polishes away heart's Strengthens the heart and tarnish body Allah shall remember Tranquility and angels you in your difficult times envelop you Protects the tongue A means of thanking and praising Him Keeps you safe Trees in Paradise will be from forgetting Allah planted Leads to the shedding of (Taken from various tearswhich will shade ahadlth. it nurtures and develops the desolate wrecks of our hearts.)

The recitation should be accompanied by deep reflection. he fH said: “The Quran will be brought on the Day ofJudgement and it will say (for its reciter): ‘My Lord. adorn him. the people of Allah and His select group of people. the best form of dhikr is the recitation of the Noble Quran.’” (Tirmidhi) ‘Uthman ibn'Affan said: “If your hearts were pure.
