Lesson 3 | Authentic Adhkār from the Qur’an & Sunnah

Sat 13 Jan 2018

✏️ Authentic Adhkār from the Qur’an & Sunnah:

Lesson 3: Gatherings of Knowledge, making plentiful remembrance and the dangers of Negligence

  • Those who sit in the gatherings of remembrance will have safety and security on the day of Judgement
  • Wasting time with vain gatherings and negligence will only be a means of regret on the day of Judgement
  • Gatherings of the remembrance of Allah are gatherings were peace and tranquillity descend therein:
    • It was narrated that Abu Hurairah and Abu Sa’eed (may Allah be pleased with them) bore witness that the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said: “No people sit in a gathering remembering Allah, But the angels surround them, mercy covers them, tranquillity descends upon them and Allah remembers them before those who are with Him.” [Reported by Ibn Mājah]
    • NOTE: this is not the same as Sufi gatherings where they chant repeatedly and turn off the lights etc. The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) and his Sahabah did NOT do any of these types of acts
  • Gatherings of knowledge are a great cause for the protection of the tongue (e.g. from backbiting and other evil speech)
    • Know that if a person does not use his tongue in the remembrance of Allah (goodness), then one is more likely to use it for evil
  • The Remembrance is from the most purifying of actions and from the best of actions with Allāh subhaanahu wata’aalaa
    • Narration of Abū Dardā (may Allah be pleased with him): The Messenger of Allāh (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said “Shall I not inform you of the best of your actions, and the purest of it with your Lord, and the one which will raise you in levels the most, and that which is better for you than spending in charity with gold and silver and better than meeting you enemy and striking their necks and they strike your necks?” they said “Yes, O messenger of Allāh! Inform us”, He (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said “The remembrance of Allāh” [Reported by At-Tirmidhī, Ibn Mājah and Al-Hākim and others]
  • Ibn Rajab mentioned that there are many texts which indicate the higher virtue of the remembrance of Allah over and above giving in charity and other actions
    • Narration about Abū Dardā (may Allah be pleased with him)
    • How Shaykh Ibn Baz (may Allah have mercy on him) would make dua whilst waiting
    • Narration of Abdullaah Ibn Mas’ud (may Allah be pleased with him)
    • Note: The above point about how the remembrance of Allah can be superior to some acts such as charity does NOT mean that charity or other acts of worship should be belittled or stopped, these are tremendous acts of worship. The point is to show how great remembering Allah is when one knows the value of acts of worship such as charity
