Be God's alone


Know (and may God be merciful to you) that the faqir when he exchanges the remembrance of all things for the remembrance (dhikr) of God, purifies his servitude. And whosoever serves God in a pure and unmixed way, is holy.

So remember only God;
be God's alone;
for if you are God's,
God will be yours
and blessed is he who belongs to God
so that God is his.

Let the mention of God's word -
"Remember Me and I will remember you." (Qur'an II:147)
- suffice to prove the excellence of the remembrance (dhikr) of God.
And the word which the Prophet s.a.w spoke on behalf of his Lord (hadith qudsi):
"I am the Companion of him who calls upon Me."
- Shaykh ad-Darqawi


  1. Assalamualaikum (wbt),

    Praising what is lost Makes the remembrance dear

  2. Wa'alaikumsalam warahmatullah wabarakatuh
    May Allah make us remember to be grateful for His bounties while we have them, not after losing them.
    Wallahu a'lam.
