Recipe 7: The best meal of the day
The Prophet, pbuh, would often tell his Companions, "Shall I tell you about the best of deeds, the most pure in the sight of your Lord, about the one that is of the highest order and is far better for you than spending gold and silver, even better for you than meeting your enemies in the battlefield where you strike at their necks and they at yours?"
The Companions replied, "Yes, O Messenger of Allah!" The Prophet, peace be upon him, said, "The Remembrance of Allah." [Tirmidhi, Ahmad]
And indeed the secret to happiness is: “Verily, in the remembrance of Allâh do hearts find rest.[13:28]. When you do dhikr, this will protect you from all of your enemies –from shaytan, from the problems and temptations of this world, and from your own desires.
The Prophet pbuh said: Two words are LIGHT on the tongue, HEAVY in the balance, BELOVED to the Merciful: ‘Glory be to Allah and by His praise. Glory be to Allah, the Immense.’” [Bukhari]
Just like suhoor & iftaar nourishes the body, dhirk in the morning & evening nourishes the soul!
[Take 60 seconds…] And open up a channel of communication, a dialogue between you and Allaah. “And remember your Lord much and exalt [Him with praise] in the evening and the morning.” [Qur’an, 3:41].
