“Those who don’t do Dhikr, their life is difficult. They have problems, there is no tatminna (serenity) and sakeena (tranquility) in their Life, the Rizq is limited, the Barakah in the life is limited, Barakah in the children is limited, Barakah in the house is limited, the Barakah in the work is limited. The Barakah in the LIFE is limited. The Barakah in the whole DUNYA is limited and therefore the Baraqah in the Qabr, Barzakh and Akhirah is also limited…!
Allah warns the People and says in The Quran: “They forgot about Allah, and Allah makes them forget about themselves as a consequence.”
Look at this Ayah, how strong it is. You forget about the Dhikr of Allah and Allah will make you forget yourself. What does that mean? You are lost! Therefore look at the Ummah; The situation of the Ummah requires alot of Dhikr today. The individual situation of the muslims Ummah requires a lot of Dhikr today. Thats why you see the individuals are lost and the Ummah as the whole level is lost. Not Islam, Islam is preserved by Allah. The muslims have to work up to the standards of Islam. The reason behind the Tawfiq is limited is because the Dhikr is not there.
“They forget about Allah swt and therefore Allah makes them forget about themselves.” If you forget about the Dhikr of Allah.. you are going closer to problems… to serious problem in Iman, serious problems in Tawheed! Why? There is a saying: “The idle mind is the devils playground!”
Imam IIbn ‘Ata Allah al-Iskandari Rahimullah said in his Hikam: “Yourself if you do not occupy with The Haq, yourself will occupy you with the Batil.” Instead of occupying yourself with the Dhikr of Al-Khaliq (Creator), it wants you to occupy yourself with the dhikr of the Khalq (creation)….”
