Mu’adh ibn Jabal RA said that RasulAllah sallahu ‘alayhi wa salam said: “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”.
Dhikrullah, the remembrance of Allah. What is it that makes it so important?
In Surah An Nas 114 we seek refuge by Allah swt from the evils of the whisperings that can enters the hearts of mankind.
Can the genuine remembrance of Allah swt and these whisperings coexist? If not, then surely dhikr is our protection, the way to combat these whisperings.
The best of deeds is the dhikr of Allah swt and the best thing about dhikr for us is that it is veryyyy easy. We don’t even need to move or open our eyes to do it. So what stops us? Is it laziness? Ignorance? Or are we letting these ‘whisperings’ enter our hearts?
Seek refuge by Allah subhanu wa ta’ala, make dua that He protects us and believe that we are able to better ourselves.
P.S Don’t forget humanity from your duas.
