Virtues of Zikr

  • Dhikr is greater than everything:

    Allah Almighty says in the Holy Qurān: ‘“…And the remembrance of Allah is greater…” [29:45]

  • Doing frequent dhikr leads to success:

  • Dhikr brings life to the heart:

    The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم 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.” [Bukhārī 6407]

  • Dhikr is a protection against Devil:

    The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “I command you to remember Allah. Verily, the parable of that is a man who goes forth while his enemies are fast upon him, and then he comes to a safe fortress, where he protects himself from them. In the same way, a servant will not protect himself against Shaytān except by the dhikr of Allah.” [Tirmidhī 2863]

  • Dhikr is the best protection for the next world:

    The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “For everything there is a polish, and the polish of the heart is the remembrance of Allah. There is nothing better a person can do to save himself from Allah’s punishment than to remember Him.” [Bayhaqī 1/ 319-320]
