Ramadhan desserts ( part 29)
ابو حنظلة محمد زهر
G) tafakkur and tadabbur
And this type of zikrullah is being described in the second part of the same verse وَيَتَفَكَّرُونَ فِي خَلْقِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ'reflect on the creation of the heavens and the earth'
As mentioned earlier by reflecting & pondering on the creation of the heavens and the earth, we will understand His greatness and perfection and thus knowing our own weaknesses and limitations, making us more humble and obedient to Him.
These are just some of the main parts of zikrullah.
Then Allah swt mentioned that these men then recite the doa as follows رَبَّنَا مَا خَلَقْتَ هَٰذَا بَاطِلًا سُبْحَانَكَ فَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ
Our Lord! Thou hast not created this in vain! Glory be to Thee; save us then from the chastisement of the fire
And this is the doa when we see the full Moon or anything that marveled us of His creation or perfection.
This doa also explains that everything that Allah swt created are not without purpose or in vain. And after acknowledging this, we praise Him -'subbhanaka' and then we ask from Him to be saved from the hellfire.
And if we noticed, many of the Doas that are being taught by the prophet saw always mention then hereafter. This is a clear indication that although we are making doa for eating or doing something, we refer back the hereafter so that we know that life in this world is just a test or traveling space & our real goal is the hereafter.
Subhanallah forgive me for all My shortcomings and inadequacy. If there are mistakes in these tazkirah / reminders (in which I believe there are), may Allah swt forgives me. In these last hours of ramadhan, don't forget to make a special doa for me- guidance and khusnul khotimah (good ending). Million syukr. And may Allah swt accepts our fast, qiyam, zakah and all the good deeds and make us among those who fast and qiyam in this blessed month with iman and ihtisaban and forgives our previous and future sins.
تقبل الله منا و منكم
