Zikr (Praise of Allah Ta'ala)ullah

Untitled Document

.....................................................................................................................

Then Hazrat Junaid Baghdadi (Rahmatullah ‘alaih) continued : “…and as a result (the Aashiq of Allah) is constantly absorbed in the remembrance of Allah; and is forever ready to fulfill his duties towards Allah…”

The lover of Allah remains engaged in Allah’s Zikr (Praise of Allah Ta'ala) with due regard to all its requirements.

He remains absorbed and engaged in the remembrance of Allah. His Zikr (Praise of Allah Ta'ala) of Allah emanates from the recesses of his heart. He says: ‘Allah’ with depth, sincerity and heart-felt longing. …And it is this name, “Allah” which keeps the entire universe in existence.

O Allah, Your remembrance is
the essence of the Universe.
Through Your beautiful, sweet name,
I have acquired all the favours
and bounties of both worlds.

Whilst Zikr (Praise of Allah Ta'ala), in this sense is extremely praiseworthy and necessary, it does not infer to just the taking of the name of Allah. The Zikr (Praise of Allah Ta'ala) of Allah is not restricted to the tongue or confined to tasbih after tasbih but in reality it covers the entire spectrum of our lives.
 
How then does the lover of Allah make Zikr (Praise of Allah Ta'ala) in the required manner, fulfilling the demands of  Zikr (Praise of Allah Ta'ala) ?

subheading-iconDefining Zikr (Praise of Allah Ta'ala)


Allah Ta’ala states in Surah Baqarah :

 “Remember Me, I will remember you…”
[Surah Baqarah 2 : 152]

The Mufassireen (commentators of the Qur`aan Sharief) elaborate and explain this verse in an exceptional and most beautiful manner…

Allah Ta’ala says : “Fazkuruni” (i.e. “Remember Me.”)
How should we remember Allah ? How would Allah Ta’ala like to be remembered?
The Mufassireen explain in the following words : “Fazkuruni bil Ita’ah”  (i.e. “Remember ME with My obedience.”)

All those deeds in obedience to Allah Ta’ala and in accordance to His command falls in the category of Zikr (Praise of Allah Ta'ala)ullah.

Allah Ta’ala requites His servant’s Zikr (Praise of Allah Ta'ala) with : “Azkurkum”             (i.e. “I will remember you.”)

How will Allah Ta’ala remember us ? In which manner will He reciprocate the Zikr (Praise of Allah Ta'ala) and obedience of His servants ?
The Mufassireen elaborate : “Azkurkum bil Inaayah.” (i.e. “I will remember you with My gifts, My blessings, My mercy and My favours.”)

…Subhanallah. This is also a manifestation of Allah Ta’ala’s sifat (attribute) of ‘Shakoor’. He appreciates the obedience of His servants. In return, He reciprocates by bestowing His gifts, in various forms, to His Zaakir. And yet, it must be understood that it was Allah Ta’ala who had granted the guidance and ability and strength to make His Zikr (Praise of Allah Ta'ala), in whichever form.

The Zaakir of Allah should have the words of Hazrat Shu’aib (‘Alaihis Salaam) deeply impressed in his heart and mind :

“…Wa-ma taufeeqi illa Billah…”
“…And my guidance cannot come except from Allah…”
[Surah Hud 11 : 88]
