Dhikr – Your Easy Path to Paradise
‘O you who believe! Remember Allah with much remembrance.’ [Qur’an 33:41]
“The People of Paradise will not regret except one thing alone: the hour that passed them by and in which they made no remembrance of Allah.“ [Al-Bayhaqi]
Dhikr, or the Remembrance of Allah, is a very important aspect of our Deen. It encapsulates the essence of worship and should form a key part of all of our actions. But not only this, the rewards for Dhikr are so immense and lofty that it provides us with an easy way to multiply our rewards in our ‘bank accounts’ in Heaven.
Dhikr provides for us a means with which our path to paradise can be simpler and easier, provided that we are fulfilling our obligations (Fara-id). A few examples of Adhkar that are simple on the tongue but heavy on the scales are noted below.
