أَلَا بِذِكْرِ اللَّهِ تَطْمَئِنُّ الْقُلُوبُ
Unquestionably, by the remembrance of Allah hearts are assured.” [Surah al-Ra’d: 28]
The Remembrance of Allah (Dhikr) is nourishment for the heart and soul. Dhikr is what relieves the heart from sorrow, grief, sadness, anxiety, doubts and distress. True contentment comes only by filling the heart for what it was made for, and that is the Remembrance of Allah!
The Prophet (saw) said, “Whoever is frightened by darkness of the night, or stinginess with wealth, or weakness of facing the enemy then he should increase in saying these words: سبحان الله وبحمده For they are more beloved to Allāh than a person spending a mountain of gold in the way of Allah.” [Saheeh al-Targheeb]
