ۗ أَلَا بِذِكْرِ اللَّهِ تَطْمَئِنُّ الْقُلُوبُ
Verily, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest ~ Surah Ar Rad 13:28
When we make Zikr and say : ‘Allah… Allah … Allah’, then the vice and evil that corrodes our hearts, the sin and all the dirt that has engulfed our hearts, is washed away and the heart is now filled with the love of Allah Ta’ala. The heart becomes clean and pure and immediately feels serenity, peace and tranquillity.
With every heartbeat we say, ‘Allah… Allah … Allah’ … and the turmoils, worries, anxieties and distress of the soul vanish …
3 Ways of Gaining the Nisbat of Allah
Hazrat Thanwi Rahmatullah Alayh explains:
“By saying, ‘Allah… Allah … Allah’, it is a means of a person connecting and reaching Allah”. He has likened the Zaakir with a person knocking on someone’s door. Like a person, who goes to someone in need of something and knocks on his door, he continues to knock and tap and wait at his door. Until the person does not open the door, he will not move away from that door because he is desperately in need of some requirement that he has. He wants that need to be fulfilled and will wait there and continue knocking.
Similarly … the one who makes the Zikr of Allah and says, ‘Allah… Allah … Allah’, then he is like that person who is standing and knocking at the door of Allah. And when the door of Allah opens, then it opens wide. Allah does not open His door slightly … He opens it completely! And then the Zaakir is connected to Allah and gains the Nisbat of Allah.
● 3 Ways of Gaining the Nisbat of Allah :

May Allah Ta’ala give us that connection with Him.
