"Remember Allah abundantly, in order that you become successful" Quran (Surah 8: Verse 45)

Importance of Zikr


"Remember Allah abundantly, in order that you become successful"
Quran (Surah 8: Verse 45)


what is meant by the gardens of Paradise?

Anas r.a narrated that Rasulullah s.a.w said: "When you pass the garden of 
Paradise, graze to your heart`s content." Someone asked, "O Rasulullah s.a.w,
what is meant  by the gardens of Paradise?" 
He replied: "Gatherings for performing zikir."
(Gatherings zikir is the gatherings toward remembering of Almighty Allah i.e 
Tilawat Quran, Tasbihat, Halaqah Taqlim, Muzakarah Imaniat etc...)
A man came to see Abu Umamah r.a and said to him: "I saw in a dream that 
whenever you went or come out, or sat or stood up, the angels prayed for you." 
Abu Umamah r.a replied: "If you wish, you can also earn their prayers," and he 
recited the ayat: "O you believe! celebrate the praises of Allah and do this 
excessively and glorify Him morning and evening.  He sends blessing on you, 
as also His angels that  He may bring you out from the depths of darkness into 
light, and He is full of Mercy to the believers."
There were 2 atmosphere of Paradise in our daily life, first is the gatherings 
remembering of Allah, and other is to greet salam among us because in 
Paradise everyone use to greet salam among them, even Almighty Allah greet 
salam to the believer (salamun qaulammir Rabbir rahim).  
And as Rasulullah s.a.w said: "spread salam (peace) among you."
Once Allah order N.Adam to greet salam to the angels and listen to their reply, 
so N.Adam a.s greet the angel with "Assalamualaikum" (peace be on you) and 
the angel replied "Waalaikum Salam  wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuhu" (and on 
you be peace and mercy of Allah and His favours). Allah said, "O Adam, this is 
your greeting and the greeting of your progeny."- (Ibn Kathir- stories of the Prophets)
