Importance of Zikr

Importance of Zikr

To understand & gauge the importance of the remembrance of Allah Pak we will list seven advantages of engaging in zikr against seven disadvantages of not performing Zikr and our conclusion will be based upon the logical comparison.of the two.


"Remember Allah abundantly, in order that you become successful"

Quran (Surah 8: Verse 45) "Believers, do not let either your possessions or your children divert you from the Remembrance of Allah. Those who do that shall be the losers".

Quran (Surah 63: Verse 9)

"Only in the remembrance of Allah Pak will your heart find peace"

Quran (Surah 13: Verse 28) "Whosoever turns away from My remembrance, his life will be made tight and narrow on the Day of Resurrection We shall raise him blind"

Quran (Surah 20: Verse 124)

"Those men and women who engage much in Allah's praise. for them, Allah has prepared forgiveness and a Great Reward"

Quran (Surah 33: Verse 35) "Whosoever turns away from the Remembrance of Allah, He will hurl him into a stern punishment".

Quran (Surah 72: Verse 17)

"When any group of men remembers Allah, angels surround them and mercy covers them, tranquility descends upon them, and Allah mentions them to those who are with Him." (Muslim) "Satan has mastered them and caused them to forget the Remembrance of Allah. Those are satan's party, and satan's party shall assuredly be the losers"

Quran (Surah 58: Verse 19)

"They are the wisest who remember Allah, standing sitting and lying down"

Quran (Surah 4: Verse 190) "Those who are admitted into paradise will not remorse over anything of this world, except over the times in which the zikr of Allah was not utilized" (Bukhari)

"Their skins and their hearts soften to the remembrance of Allah"

Quran (Surah 39: Verse 23)

"Woe to those whose hearts have hardened against the Remembrance of Allah! Those are in clear error".

Quran (Surah 39: Verse 22)

"The remembrance of Allah Pak is the greatest (deed)"

Quran (Surah 29: Verse 45) "Whosoever blinds himself from the Remembrance of the Merciful, We shall assign to him an evil Satan who will be his (ever misleading) companion"

Quran (Surah 43: Verse 36)


Those who perform Zikr are Wise and are promised Success, Peace, Happiness, Mercy, Forgiveness and Great Rewards in this life and the next. All of which are valued as being positive important factors in one's religious and worldly life.

Whilst those who do not engage in Zikr are classed as being heard hearted losers who are clearly in the error and in the group of Satan... and as such, they will be made to live a tight and narrow life, full of misery and woe, punished in this life as well as being risen blind in the next and who will be remorseful of all the time not spent in the Remembrance of Allah Pak.

So exactly how important is zikr? Basically put, for a Muslim, zikr is a matter of life and death:

"The likeness of the one who Remembers his Lord and the one who does not Remember Him is like that between the living and the dead" (Bukhari).
