    Celebrating the Praises of Allah

    Extract taken from the Book "Citadel of the Believer " Compiled by Sa
    id bin
    Ali Bin Wahaf Al- Qahtani
    Celebrating The Praises Of Allah

    Allah the Allmighty has said :

    " Therefore remember Me, I will remember You. Be Grateful to Me & never
    show
    Me Ingratitude "

    [2: 152]

    And He said "Oh you who belive, remember Allah time & again"

    [33:41]

    And He said : "And the men & women who remember Allah frequently, Allah
    has
    prepared for the forgiveness & a great Reward "

    [33:35]

    And he said : "And remember your Lord by your tongue & within
    yourself,
    humbly & in awe, without loudness, by words in the morning & in the
    evening,
    & be not among those who are neglectful "

    [7:205]

    The Prophet Muhammed SAWS PBUH said "He who remembers his Lord & he who
    does
    not remember his Lord are like the living & the dead "

    [Albukhari , from Al-Asqalani,Fath Al Bari 11/208, Muslim with the
    wording :
    "The house in which Allah is remembered & the house in which Allah is
    not
    remembered are like the living & the dead" ]

    And the Prophet Muhammed SAWS PBUH said "Shall I not tell you about the
    best
    of your works, the purest of your possession,your most elevated
    station, the
    thing that is better for you than spending you gold & silver [in the
    way of
    Allah ], and better for you than meeting your enemies & slaying them &
    being
    slain ?"

    "Oh yes " they said. He said "REMEMBRANCE of Almighty Allah "

    [At Tirmihi 5/459,Ibn Majah 2/1245. See Al Albani, Sahih Ibn Majah
    2/316 &
    Sahih Al Tirmidhi 3/139]

    And the Prophet Muhammed SAWS PBUH said :

    "Almighty Allah says, 'I am with my slave when he think of me & I am
    with
    him when he mentions me. For if he mentions me to himself, I have
    mentioned
    him to myself, and if he mentions me in a gathering, I have mentioned
    him in
    a superior gathering.

    If he approaches me by a hand's width, I approach him by an arms
    length; and
    if he approaches me by an arms's length, I approach him by a mile's
    length.
    And if he comes to me walking, I hasten to him swiftly' "

    [Al bukhari 8/171, Muslim 4/2061; this wording is from Al Bukhari]

    Abdullah bin Busr said that a man asked the Prophet Muhammed SAWS PBUH
    "Oh
    Prophet, there are so many ways that we are permitted to worship Allah.
    Please give me a simple thing that I can do ?"

    The Prophet SAWS PBUH said "Let your tongue always be moist with the
    remembrance of Allah "

    [At-Tirmidhi 5/458, Ibn Majah 2/1246. See Al A-Albani , Sahih At
    Tirmidih
    3/139 & Sahih Ibn Majah 2/317]

    And the Prophet Muhammed SAWS PBUH said " Whoever reads one letter from
    the
    book of Allah, will receive one Hasana, and one Hasana comes with ten
    like
    it. I do not say that Alif, Lam, Mim is a letter. Indeed Alif is a
    letter, &
    Lam is a letter, & Mim is a letter "

    [At Tirmidhi 5/175. See Al-Albani, Sahih At Tirmidhi 9/3 and Sahih As
    Saghir
    5/340]

    Uqbah bin `Amr Radih said "Whoever sits down and does not mention the
    Name
    of Allah [before he rises] will find it a cause of sorrow. Whoever lies
    down
    to sleep & does not mention the Name of Allah before rising will find
    it a
    cause of sorrow "

    [Abu Dawud, 4/2464. See Al Albani , Sahih Al Jami As-Saghir 5/342]

    And the Prophet SAWS PBUH said "Whoever sits in an assembly of people
    who do
    not mention the Name of Allah in their gathering, & who do not ask
    Allah in
    their gathering, & who do not ask Allah for his blessings on their
    Prophet,
    will find it a cause of sorrow. If He wishes He will punish them, & if
    He
    wishes He will forgive them "

    [At- Tirmidhi, See Al-Albani, Sahih At Tirmidhi 3/140]

    And the Prophet Muhammed SAWS PBUH said " No people may rise from an
    assmebly in which they have failed to mention in the Name of Allah
    without
    it being as if they were getting off a dead donkey's rotting back, & it
    would be a cause of affliction for them "

    [Abu Dawud, 4/264. See Al-Albani, Sahih Al Jami 5/176]
