My dear daughters,
Assalaamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakaatuh.
Congratulations to you all for your special meeting this 23rd June 2019. May Allah purify your intellect and enable you to educate yourselves and all our Siraj Makin members with utmost devotion. Ameen.
Today I would like to expound on the importance of Zikrullah (Remembrance of Allah). Allah talked about the importance of His remembrance in many verses of the Holy Quran, among which, He says:
Remember Me, and I will remember you, and be thankful to Me, and be not ungrateful to Me. (2: 153).
You need to know that Zikrullah is very important in one’s spiritual life. Zikrullah is the food of the soul. Remember, Allah loves us, and craves for our love also. He wants us to remember Him always, in any and every situation which may crop up in our daily life. Be it in happy days and sad days, Allah should always be in your mind, to thank Him and to ask of Him to give you the strength and courage to deal with all problems of life and to advance in spirituality, and to become a sincere and pious help for His cause.
The help of Allah is vital for the success of a cause. And the most vital of causes is the Cause of Allah. We women and girls of the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam should never forget to remember Allah and to give Him thanks and be grateful to Him.
We should always thank Allah, for everything, even if it be a problem or calamity, because Allah knows what is best for us. He guides us to unimaginable situations to gauge our faith and reaction, to see if we are really sincere towards Him and His Divine Manifestation. Many of us have lost many things in the path of Allah, but in return Allah has promised us a goodly reward, be it in this world and the hereafter.
So, you must not be discouraged. Keep up your connection with Allah through your obligatory Salat (prayers) and the voluntary prayers as well, and recite His attributes. Seek Him through His attributes.
