(Verily, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find
(Qur'an 13: 28)
Truthfulness is beloved by Allah and is purifying soap
for the heart. And there is no deed that gives such pleasure to the heart, or has
greater reward, than the remembrance of Allah.
(Therefore remember me, and I will remember you…)(Qur'an
Remembrance of Allah is His paradise on earth, and
whoever does not enter it will not enter the Paradise of the Hereafter. Remembrance
is not only a safe haven from the problems and worries of this world, but it is
also the short and easy path to achieving ultimate success. Read the various

When you remember Allah, clouds of worry and fear are

(Do you know of any that is similar to Him! [There is
nothing like unto Him and He is the All-Hearer; the All-Seer])
(Qur'an 19: 65)
To the degree that you remember Allah, your heart will
be calm and cheerful. His remembrance carries with it the meaning of total dependence
upon Him, of turning to Him for aid, of having good thoughts about Him, and of
waiting for victory from Him. Truly, He is near when supplicated: He hears when
He is called and He answers when He is invoked, so humble yourself before Him
and ask of Him sincerely. Repeat His beautiful blessed name, and mention Him as
being alone worthy of worship. Mention His praises, supplicate to Him, and ask
forgiveness from Him: you will then find - by the will of Allah- happiness,
peace, and illumination.
(So Allah gave them the reward of this world and the
excellent reward of the Hereafter) (Quran 3: 148)
