Ramadhan desserts ( part 27)
ابو حنظلة محمد زهر
الَّذِينَ يَذْكُرُونَ اللَّهَ قِيَامًا وَقُعُودًا وَعَلَىٰ جُنُوبِهِمْ
'Those who remember Allah standing and sitting and lying on their sides'
Here Allah swt has further clarify who are the ones with understanding, that is they are in constant zikrullah at all times and places. Zikrullah is the most versatile form of worship. In fact worship with the absence of His remembrance is not really worship. It is so important that the legislation of solat is His remembrance. Allah swt said : إِنَّنِي أَنَا اللَّهُ لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا أَنَا فَاعْبُدْنِي وَأَقِمِ الصَّلَاةَ لِذِكْرِي
'Surely I am Allah, there is no god but I, therefore serve Me and keep up prayer for My remembrance'
Solat is for His remembrance. Someone who prays but his mind is elsewhere and not remembering Him cannot be called a real proper Solat, only just the physical movement of solat.
In this verse, the merit of those who remember Him constantly is being highlighted.
And zikrullah is always misunderstood as tasbih and tahmid etc only. Yes tasbih (saying subhannallah) and tahmid (alhamdulillah) and takbir (allahuakbar) and etc are part of zikrullah but it is just a fraction / part of zikrullah.
Inshaallah we will discuss the different forms of zikrullah here:
A) al- quran
This is the best form of zikrullah. What words is better than His almighty words Himself. In fact zikrullah mentioned in the Quran many times refers to the Quran itself. Some people emphasis on tasbih, making thousands of them daily but forgot or neglect to recite the Quran is actually making a grave mistake. What better way to remember Him than His words? Our predecessors as solihin had made a great emphasis on its reading, learning and understanding. So read the quran daily wherever you are and ponder on its meaning.
