#RamadanTips – Episode 4: Remembrance of Allah
Alhumdulillah, you started being consistent with salah and trying your best to tick Tahajjud off your list. However, something is missing. It’s the dhikr of Allah SWT!
“Those who believe, and whose hearts find rest in the remembrance of Allah, Verily, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest.” ~ Quran 13:28
Dhikr removes the rust from your heart and purifies the soul. It works like a shield around you and protects you from any harm.
Ibn Taymiyah said, ‘Remembrance is to the heart what water is to fish. What happens to the fish that leaves the water?’
✨ Start your daybreak with dhikr. After finishing Fajr prayer, before you start the hustle, take ten mins and sit down to make dhikr. And as the day ends with Maghrib, sit down and express your gratitude to The Most High!
