Excellence of Remembering Allah

Updated on January 23, 2016


Allah says in the Quran.

“Those who have believed and whose hearts have rest in the remembrance of Allah. Verily in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest!” (Surah Ar-Ra’d: 28)

From this ayah we understand that indeed, the only way to peace and tranquility is the remembrance (dhikr) of Allah (swt). But what does remembrance mean? Remembering Allah (swt) does not necessarily mean that we remember Him by sitting down in one place with a chain of beads and start chanting Allahu, Allahu. There is no fixed time or place to thank or praise Allah. Remembrance also means, to remember and see Allah’s Mercy, Power, Ability, Justice, and Generosity in everything we do and every situation we are in.

ALLAH says in Quran.

"Therefore, remember Me, and, I will remember you, be grateful to Me and never deny Me" [al-Baqarah, 2:152]

"O believers! Remember Allah as a frequent remembrance, and glorify Him morning and evening." [al-Ahzaab, 33:41-42] "

We have been sent down to earth with a purpose, i.e to worship and obey ALLAH. We have forgotten our covenant with ALLAH and have gotten so busy with the matters and affairs of this world that we have no time to even offer salath!?

ALLAH Says. "He who turns away from the remembrance of Rahman (Allah, the Compassionate), We assign a Satan (Shaytan) for him, who becomes his intimate companion and turns such people away from the Right Path, while they think that they are guided aright" [az-Zukhruf - 43:36-37]

"And remember your Lord within yourself (deep in your soul, fee nafsika), humbly and with fear without loudness in words in the mornings, and in the afternoons and be not of those who are neglectful. [al-A'araaf - 7:205]

Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, thus stated: I am near to the thought of My servant as he thinks about Me,(1) and I am with him as he remembers Me. And if he remembers Me in his heart, I also remember him in My Heart, and if he remembers Me in assembly I remember him in a greater assembly, than his (remembrance), and if he draws near Me by the span of a palm, I draw near him by the cubit, and if he draws near Me by the cubit I draw near him by the space (covered by) two hands. And if he walks towards Me, I rush towards him.

(1) Another possible rendering of the Arabic sentence " I am as My servant expects Me to be". Meaning is that forgiveness and acceptance of repentance by the Almighty is subject to His servant truly believing that He is forgiving and merciful. However, not to accompany such belief with right action would be to mock the Almighty. It was related by al-Buhkari (also by Muslim, at-Tirmidhi and Ibn-Majah).

Few Hadiths about how to glorify Allah and it's rewards.

1)Abu Hurayrah (RA) reported that the Messenger of ALLAH (SWT) said whoever says:"Laa ilaaha illallaahu wahdahu laa shareeka lahu, lahul-mulku wa lahul-hamdu wa Huwa alaa kulli shay'in Qadeer".

"There is no true god except Allah.He is One and He has no partner with Him; His is the sovereignty and His is the praise, and He is powerful over everything"

One hundred times will get the same reward as given for manumitting ten slaves; and one hundred good deeds will be written in his accounts,and one hundred sins will be deducted from his accounts,and it will be a shield for him from Satan on that day till night,and nobody will be able to do a better deed except the one who does more than he.

( Sahih Al-Bukhari)


2)Whoever says: "Subhaanallaahi wa bihamdihi"

How perfect Allah is and I praise him.

A hundred times in a day, his sins are wiped away, even If they like the foam of the sea.

( Al-Bukhari and Muslim)

3)Abu Hurayrah(RA) reported that the messenger of Allah (SWT) said " whoever says at morning and evening time.

"Subhaanallaahi wa bihamdihi."

One hundred times, none shall come on the day of resurrection with anything better except someone who has said the same or even more"


4)Abu Hurayrah (RA) reported that the messenger of Allah (SWT) said " There are two words which are light on the tongue, heavy on the scale and beloved to our Gracious:

"Subhaanal-laahi wa bihamdihi, Subhaanal-laahil-Adheem"

"How perfect Allah is and I praise him how effect Allah is, the supreme.

(Al-Bukhari and Muslim )

5)Jaabir Ibn Abdullah (RA) related that the messenger of Allah (SWT) said: " verily the best supplication is:


All praise to Allah.

And indeed the best form of remembranceis

"La illaha illallah "

None has the right to be worship except Allah.

The everlasting righteous deeds.

" Subhaanallaah, Walhamdu lillaah, Wa laa -ilaaha -illallaah, Wallaahu Akbar , Wa laa hawla wa laa quwwata illaa billaah"

How prefect Allah is, and all praise is for Allah. None has the right to be worshiped except Allah and Allah is the greatest. There is no might nor power except with Allah.

(Ahmed , with authentic chain.)

6) Allah's Messenger (PBUH) said: "Is anyone of you incapable of earning one thousand Hasanah (rewards) in a day? Someone from his gathering asked, "How can anyone of us earn a thousand Hasanah " He said, "Glorify Allah a hundred times and a thousand Hasanah will be written for you, or a thousand sins will be wiped away.

( Muslim)

7)Allah's Messenger (PBUH) said: For me to say- "Subhaanallaahi, walhamdu lillaahi, wa laa 'ilaaha 'illallaahu, wallaahu 'Akbar"

Glory is to Allah, and praise is to Allah, and there is none worthy of worship but Allah, and Allah is the Most Great.

Is dearer to me than all that the sun rises upon (i.e. the whole world).

( Muslim)

8) Whoever says- "Subhaanallaahil-'Adheemi wa bihamdihi".

Glorified is Allah the Most Great and praised is He.

Will have a date palm planted for him in Paradise.

( At-Tirmithi and Al-Hakim)

9) ALLAH's Messenger (PBUH) said- "O Abdullah bin Qais, should I not point you to one of the treasures of Paradise?" I said, " Yes, O Messenger of Allah " So he told me to say: " Laa hawla wa laa quwwata illaa billaah"

There is no power and no might except by Allah.

( Al-Bukhari, Al-Asqalani, Fathul-Bari, Muslim)

10) Allah's Messenger (PBUH) said: The most beloved words to Allah are four:

" Subhaanallaah, Walhamdu lillaah, Wa laa ilaaha 'illallaah and Wallaahu Akbar"

Glorified is Allah, The praise is for Allah, There is none worthy of worship but Allah, Allah is the Most Great.
