VIRTUES OF ZKIR ...

 
 
 
A Sunnah Easy To Act Upon
 
 
Narrated Abdullah ibn Amr:
The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said:
There are two qualities or characteristics which will not be returned by any Muslim without his entering Paradise.
While they are easy, those who act upon them are few.
One should say:
“Glory be to Allah” ten times after every prayer,
“Praise be to Allah” ten times and
“Allah is Most Great” ten times.

 That is a hundred and fifty on the tongue, but one thousand and five hundred on the scale.
 

When he goes to bed, he should say:
“Allah is Most Great” thirty-four times,
“Praise be to Allah” thirty-three times,
and Glory be to Allah thirty-three times,
for that is a hundred on the tongue and a thousand on the scale.
 
(He said:) I saw the Apostle of Allaah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) counting them on his hand.
 
The people asked: Apostle of Allaah (صلى الله عليه وسلم)!
How is it that while they are easy, those who act upon them are few?
 
He (صلى الله عليه وسلم) replied:

 The Devil comes to one of you when he goes to bed and he makes him sleep, before he utters them, and he comes to him while he is engaged in prayer and calls a need to his mind before he utters them. (Abu Dawood Book #41, Hadith #5047)
 
 
What Happens When You Remember Allaah
 
 
Narrated Abu Huraira:
 
 
Allaah ‘s Apostle (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said,
“Allaah has some angels who look for those who celebrate the Praises of Allaah on the roads and paths. And when they find some people celebrating the Praises of Allaah, they call each other, saying, “Come to the object of your pursuit.’ “
 
 
He (صلى الله عليه وسلم) added,
“Then the angels encircle them with their wings up to the sky of the world.”
He (صلى الله عليه وسلم) added.
“(after those people celebrated the Praises of Allaah, and the angels go back),
their Lord, asks them (those angels)—-though He knows better than them
‘What do My slaves say?’
The angels reply,
‘They say: SubHaan Allaah, Allaahu Akbar, and alHamdu-lillaah,
 
 
Allaah then says:
‘Did they see Me?’
The angels reply,
‘No! By Allaah, they didn’t see You.’
Allaah says:
How it would have been if they saw Me?’
The angels reply:
‘If they saw You, they would worship You more devoutly and celebrate Your glory more deeply, and declare Your freedom from any resemblance to anything more often.’
Allaah says (to the angels),
‘What do they ask Me for?’
The angels reply,
‘They ask You for Paradise.’
Allaah says (to the angels),
‘Did they see it?’
The angels say,
‘No! By Allaah, O Lord! They did not see it.’
Allaah says,
How it would have been if they saw it?’
The angels say,
‘If they saw it, they would have greater covetousness for it and would seek It with greater zeal and would have greater desire for it.’
Allaah says,
‘From what do they seek refuge?’
The angels reply,
‘They seek refuge from the (Hell) Fire.’
Allaah says,
‘Did they see it?’
The angels say,
‘No By Allaah, O Lord! They did not see it.’
Allaah says,
How it would have been if they saw it?’
The angels say,
‘If they saw it they would flee from it with the extreme fleeing and would have extreme fear from it.’
Then Allaah says,
‘I make you witnesses that I have forgiven them.”‘
Allaah’s Apostle (صلى الله عليه وسلم) added,
“One of the angels would say,
‘There was so-and-so amongst them, and he was not one of them, but he had just come for some need.’
Allaah would say,
‘These are those people whose companions will not be reduced to misery.’
(Bukhari Book #75, Hadith #417)
 
 
Yahya related to me from Malik that Ziyad ibn Abi Ziyad said that Abu’d-Darda had said,:
“Shall I not tell you the best of your deeds, and those that give you the highest rank, and those that are the purest with your King, and are better for you than giving gold and silver, and better for you than meeting your enemy and striking their necks?”
They said, “Of course.”
He said, “Remembrance (dhikr) of Allaah ta ala.”
(Malik Muwatta Book #15, Hadith #15.7.24)

AYATUL KURSI ...



 




In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
Allah! There is no God but He,
the Living, the Self-subsisting, the Eternal.
No slumber can seize Him, nor sleep.
All things in heaven and earth are His.
Who could intercede in His presence without His permission?
He knows what appears in front of and behind His creatures.
Nor can they encompass any knowledge of Him except what he wills.
His throne extends over the heavens and the earth,
and He feels no fatigue in guarding and preserving them,
for He is the Highest and Most Exalted.
(Al Baqara: 255)



1. Asma' bint Yazid (may Allah be pleased with her) reported, ' I heard the Messenger of
Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) say about these two following Ayahs, i.e,
verses: "Allah! There is no god but He - the Living, The Self-subsisting, Eternal. [2:255],
And, Alif Lam Mim, Allah! There is no god but He - the Living, The Self-subsisting,
Eternal [3:1-2], That they contain Allah's Greatest Name."
[Imam Ahmad bin Hanbal in his Musnad]


2. It was narrated that Abu Umamah (may Allah be pleased with him) said: The
Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said: "Whoever recites Ayat Al-
Kursi immediately after each prescribed Prayer, there will be nothing standing between
him and his entering Paradise except death."
[an-Nasa'i and Ibn Hibban]


3. It was narrated from Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) that the
Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said: "In Surat Al-Baqarah there
is a verse which is the best of all the verses of the Qur'an. It is never recited in a house
but Shaitan leaves: Ayat Al-Kursi."


4. Abu Umamah Al-Bahili (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (peace
and blessings be upon him) said: "The one who recites it after each of the obligatory
prayers, then death will be the only thing preventing him from entering Paradise."
[ibn Sunni, at-Tabarani, ibn Hibban - Sahih]


5. Ubayy bin Ka'b (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah
(peace and blessings be upon him) said:
"Abu Mundhir! Do you know which Ayah in Allah's Book is the greatest? I said: 'Allah and
His messenger know best.'
He (peace and blessings be upon him) again said: 'Do you know which Ayah in Allah's
Book, according to you, is the greatest?' I (Abu Mundhir) replied: 'It is 'Allah la ilaha illa
Huwal-Hayyul-Qayyum'.[2:255]. Thereupon he (peace be upon him) patted me in the
chest and said, ' Rejoice by your knowledge, O Abu Mundhir! (i.e, may this knowledge
be a source of respect, honour and benefit to you)'."
[Muslim]


6. Abu Dhar (may Allah be pleased with him) said; O Messenger of Allah, what is the
greatest thing that has been revealed to you?' He said, Ayat al-Kursi, 'Allah! La ilaha illa
Huwa'
[an-Nasa'i]


7. When you lie down in your bed, recite ayat al-Kursi, Allah! La ilaha illa Huwa (none
has the right to be worshipped but He), the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and
protects all that exists? [al-Baraqah 2:255] until the end of the ayah, then you will have
a protector from Allah and no shaytan (devil) will come near you until morning comes.
[Sahih al-Bukhari]


8. Everything has its pinnacle and the pinnacle of the Quran is Surah al-Baqarah. In it
there is an ayah which is the greatest in the Qur'an: Ayat al-Kursi
[at-Tirmidhi]


9. It is reported by way of Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) that someone
used to come upon him and take from the charity ? which the Prophet (peace and
blessings be upon him) had made him guardian over ? night after night, so on the third
night, he said: "I will report you to the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon
him), the man said: 'Let me teach you some phrases with which Allah will cause you
benefit' ? they were very eager for good ? so he said: 'When you go to, read 'Ayat alkursi
(Verse 255 of Surah Al-Baqarah) completely, for there is still upon you from Allah a
guardian, and no shaytan can get close to you until you enter upon morning.' Then he
(peace and blessings be upon him) said: "He told you the truth and he is a liar, (that was
a shaitan)."
[Sahih Al-Bukhari]


10. It is reported from Anas (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and
blessings be upon him) asked a certain companion if he was married. He replied. "I do
not have so much money as to get married." RasulAllah (peace and blessings be upon
him) said "Do you know Suratul-Ikhlas?" He replied: "Yes". RasulAllah (peace and
blessings be upon him) remarked: "That equals to a quarter of the Holy Qur'an. Do you
know Suratul-Kafirun?" He replied: "Yes." RasulAllah (peace and blessings be upon him)
said "it equals to a quarter of the Holy Qur'an". He further asked "do you know Suratul-
Zilzal?" He replied, "yes." RasulAllah (peace and blessings be upon him) said: "That
equals to a quarter of the Holy Qur'an. Do you know Suratul-Fath?" He replied: "Yes".
RasulAllah (peace and blessings be upon him) said: "That equals to a quarter of the
Holy Qur'an. Do you know Ayat-al Kursi?" He replied: "Yes". RasulAllah (peace and
blessings be upon him) said: "That equals to a quarter of the Holy Qur'an. Get married,
get married, get married!"


11. It is reported by at-Tabarani that the Prophet (Peace and blessings be upon him)
said: "The one who recites Ayat-al kursi after the conclusion of an obligatory prayer, he
is under the Care of Allah until the next prayer commences."
[at-Tabaraani's At Targheeb wat-Tarheeb (2:435)]

BERISTIGHFAR LAH SEBANYAK BANYAK NYA ...

 


Menggembirakan Allah. 
 
Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda, “Sungguh Allah lebih gembira dengan taubat hamba-Nya daripada kegembiraan salah seorang dari kalian yang menemukan untanya yang hilang di padang pasir.” (HR. Bukhari dan Muslim).

Dicintai Allah. 
 
Allah berfirman, “Sesungguhnya Allah mencintai orang-orang yang bertaubat dan mencintai orang-orang yang mensucikan diri.” (QS.al-Baqarah: 222). Rasulullah bersabda, “Orang yang bertaubat adalah kekasih Allah. Orang yang bertaubat atas dosanya, bagaikan orang yang tidak berdosa.” (HR.Ibnu Majah)

Dosa-dosanya Diampuni. 
 
 
Rasulullah bersabda, “Allah telah berfirman, "Wahai hamba-hamba-Ku, setiap kalian pasti berdosa kecuali yang Aku jaga. Maka beristighfarlah kalian kepada-Ku, nescaya kalian Aku ampuni. Dan barangsiapa yang meyakini bahwa Aku punya kemampuan untuk mengampuni dosa-dosanya, maka Aku akan mengampuninya dan Aku tidak peduli (beberapa banyak dosanya).” (HR.Ibnu Majah, Tirmidzi)


 Imam Qatadah berkata,”Al-Qur’an telah menunjukkan penyakit dan ubat kalian. Adapun penyakit kalian adalah dosa, dan ubat kalian adalah istighfar.” (Kitab Ihya’Ulumiddin: 1/410).


Selamat Dari Api Neraka. 
Hudzaifah pernah berkata, “Saya adalah orang yang tajam lidah terhadap keluargaku, Wahai Rasulullah, aku takut kalau lidahku itu menyebabkan aku masuk neraka’. Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda,’ Dimana posisimu terhadap istighfar? Sesungguhnya, aku senantiasa beristighfar kepada Allah sebanyak seratus kali dalam sehari semalam’.” (HR. Nasa’i, Ibnu Majah, al-Hakim dan dishahihkannya).


Mendapat Ganjaran Syurga. 
 
“Dan (juga) orang-orang yang apabila mengerjakan perbuatan keji atau menganiaya diri sendiri, mereka ingat akan Allah, lalu memohon ampun terhadap dosa-dosa mereka dan siapa lagi yang dapat mengampuni dosa selain Allah? Dan mereka tidak meneruskan perbuatan kejinya itu, sedang mereka mengetahui. Mereka itu balasannya ialah ampunan dari Tuhan mereka dan syurga yang di dalamnya mengalir sungai-sungai, sedang mereka kekal di dalamnya; dan itulah sebaik-baik pahala orang-orang yang beramal.”(QS. Ali’Imran: 135-136).

Mengecewakan Syaitan. 
 
 
Sesungguhnya syaitan telah berkata,”Demi kemuliaan-Mu ya Allah, aku terus-menerus akan menggoda hamba-hamba-Mu selagi roh mereka ada dalam badan mereka (masih hidup). Maka Allah menimpalinya,”Dan demi kemuliaan dan keagungan-Ku, Aku senantiasa mengampuni mereka selama mereka memohon ampunan (beristighfar) kepada-Ku.”(HR.Ahmad dan al-Hakim).

Menyebabkan Syaitan Putus-asa. 
 
Ali bin Abi Thalib r.a pernah didatangi oleh seseorang, "Saya telah melakukan dosa’. 'Bertaubatlah kepada Allah, dan jangan kamu ulangi’, kata Ali. Orang itu menjawab,’Saya telah bertaubat, tapi setelah itu saya berdosa lagi’. Ali berkata, ‘Bertaubatlah kepada Allah, dan jangan kamu ulangi’. Orang itu bertanya lagi,’Sampai bila?’ Ali menjawab,’ Sampai syaitan berputus asa dan merasa rugi.” (Kitab Tanbihul Ghafilin: 73).


Terhindar Dari Azab Api Neraka. 
 
Allah berfirman, "Dan Allah sekali-kali tidak akan mengazab mereka, sedang kamu berada di antara mereka. Dan tidaklah (pula) Allah akan mengazab mereka, sedang mereka meminta ampun.”(QS.al-Anfal: 33).


Menghilangkan Kesedihan. 
 
Rasulullah bersabda, "Barangsiapa yang senantiasa beristighfar, maka Allah akan memberikan kegembiraan dari setiap kesedihannya, dan kelapangan bagi setiap kesempitannya, dan memberinya rezeki dari arah yang tiada disangka-sangka.”(HR.Abu Daud, Ibnu Majah dan Ahmad).


Diberikan Kegembiraan. 
 
 
Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda, "Barangsiapa yang senantiasa beristighfar, maka Allah akan memberikan kegembiraan dari setiap kesedihannya, dan kelapangan bagi setiap kesempitannya dan memberinya rezeki dari arah yang tiada disangka-sangka,”(HR.Abu Daud, Ibnu Majah dan Ahmad).

Melancarkan Rezeki. 
 
Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda,”Sesungguhnya seorang hamba boleh tertahan rezekinya kerana dosa yang dilakukannya.” (HR.Ahmad, Ibnu Hibban dan Ibnu Majah).

Membersihkan Hati. 
 
Rasulullah s.a.w bersabda,”Apabila seorang mukmin melakukan suatu dosa, maka tercoretlah noda hitam di hatinya. Apabila ia bertaubat, meninggalkannya dan beristighfar, maka bersihlah hatinya.”(HR.Nasa’i, Ibnu Majah, Ibnu Hibban, Tirmidzi).


Mengangkat Darjat Di Syurga. 
 
 
Rasulullah bersabda,”Sesungguhnya Allah akan mengangkat derajat seorang hamba di syurga. Hamba itu berkata,’Wahai Allah, dari mana saya dapat kemuliaan ini?’ Allah berkata,’Kerana istighfar anakmu untukmu’.”(HR.Ahmad dengan sanad hasan).

Mengikut Sunnah Nabi. 
 
Abu Hurairah berkata,”Saya telah mendengar Rasulullah bersabda, 'Demi Allah, Sesungguhnya aku minta ampun kepada Allah (beristighfar) dan bertaubat kepada-Nya dalam sehari lebih dari tujuh puluh kali’.”(HR.Bukhari).


Menjadi Sebaik-baik Orang Yang Bersalah.
 Rasulullah bersabda,”Setiap anak Adam pernah bersalah, dan sebaik-baik orang yang bersalah adalah yang segera bertaubat.”(HR.Tirmidzi, Ibnu Majah, al-Hakim).

Bersifat Sebagai Hamba Allah Yang Sejati. 
Allah berfirman,”Dan Allah Maha Melihat akan hamba-hamba-Nya. (Yaitu) orang-orang yang berdo’a:”Ya Tuhan kami, sesungguhnya kami telah beriman, maka ampunilah segala dosa kami dan peliharalah kami dari siksa neraka,”(iaitu) orang-orang yang sabar, yang benar, yang tetap ta’at, yang menafkahkan hartanya (dijalan Allah), dan yang memohon ampun (beristighfar) di waktu sahur.”(QS.Ali’Imran: 15-17).


Terhindar Dari Menjadi Orang Yang Zalim.
 Allah berfirman,”…Barang siapa yang tidak bertaubat, maka mereka itulah orang-orang yang zalim.”(QS. al-Hujurat: 11)


Mudah Mendapat Anak. 
 
Allah berfirman,”Maka aku katakan kepada mereka:”Mohonlah ampun (istighfar) kepada Tuhanmu, sesungguhnya Dia adalah Maha Pengampun, niscaya Dia akan mengirimkan hujan kepadamu dengan lebat, dan memperbanyakkan harta dan anak-anakmu, dan mengadakan untukmu kebun-kebun dan mengadakan (pula didalamnya) untukmu sungai-sungai.” (QS.Nuh: 10-12).


Sentiasa Diturunkan Air Hujan. 
 
 
Ibnu Shabih berkata,”Hasan al-Bashri pernah didatangi seseorang dan mengadu bahwa lahannya tandus, ia berkata,
 
‘Perbanyaklah istighfar’.
 
Lalu ada orang lain yang mengadu bahwa kebunnya kering, ia berkata, ‘Perbanyaklah istighfar’. Lalu ada orang lain lagi yang mengadu bahwa ia belum punya anak, ia berkata,’Perbanyaklah istighfar’. (Kitab Fathul Bari: 11/98)

Bertambah Kekuatannya. 
 
 
Allah berfirman,”Dan (dia berkata): "Hai kaumku, mohonlah ampun kepada Tuhanmu lalu bertobatlah kepada-Nya, niscaya Dia menurunkan hujan yang sangat deras atasmu, dan Dia akan menambahkan kekuatan kepada kekuatanmu, dan janganlah kamu berpaling dengan berbuat dosa.” (QS. Hud: 52)

Bertambah Kesejahteraannya. 
 
 
Allah berfirman,”Maka aku katakan kepada mereka: "Mohonlah ampun kepada Tuhanmu, sesungguhnya Dia adalah Maha Pengampun, niscaya Dia akan mengirimkan hujan kepadamu dengan lebat, dan membanyakkan harta dan anak-anakmu, dan mengadakan untukmu kebun-kebun dan mengadakan (pula di dalamnya) untukmu sungai-sungai.”(QS.Nuh: 10-12).

Menjadi Orang Yang Beruntung. 
 
 
Allah berfirman, "Dan bertaubatlah kamu sekalian kepada Allah, hai orang-orang yang beriman supaya kamu beruntung.”
(QS.an-Nur: 31).


 Aisyah berkata,”Beruntunglah, orang-orang yang menemukan istighfar yang banyak pada setiap lembar catatan harian amal mereka.”(HR.Bukhari).

Keburukannya Diganti Dengan Kebaikan. 
Allah berfirman, "Kecuali orang-orang yang bertaubat, beriman dan mengerjakan amal saleh; maka kejahatan mereka diganti Allah dengan kebajikan. Dan adalah Allah Maha Pengampun lagi Maha Penyayang.”
(QS. al-Furqan: 70).



“Dan dirikanlah solat itu pada kedua tepi siang (pagi dan petang) dan pada bahagian permulaan daripada malam. Sesungguhnya perbuatan-perbuatan yang baik itu menghapuskan (dosa) perbuatan-perbuatan yang buruk. Itulah peringatan bagi orang-orang yang ingat.”(QS. Hud: 114).

Bercitra Sebagai Orang Mukmin. 
Rasulullah bersabda,”Tidak seorangpun dari umatku, yang apabila ia berbuat baik dan ia menyedari bahawa yang diperbuat adalah kebaikan, maka Allah akan membalasnya dengan kebaikan.
 
Dan tidaklah ia melakukan suatu yang tercela, dan ia sadar sepenuhnya bahawa perbuatannya itu salah, lalu ia mohon ampun (beristighfar) kepada Allah, dan hatinya yakin bahawa tiada Tuhan yang boleh mengampuni kecuali Allah, maka dia adalah seorang Mukmin.”(HR.Ahmad).


Berkeperibadian Sebagai Orang Bijak. 
 
 
Seorang ulama berkata,”Tanda orang yang arif (bijak) itu ada enam.
 
Apabila ia menyebut nama Allah, ia merasa bangga.
 
 
Apabila menyebut dirinya, ia merasa hina.
 
Apabila memperhatikan ayat-ayat Allah, ia ambil pelajarannya.
 
Apabila muncul keinginan untuk bermaksiat, ia segera mencegahnya.
 
Apabila disebutkan ampunan Allah, ia merasa gembira.
 
Dan apabila mengingat dosanya, ia segera beristighfar.” (Kitab Tanbihul Ghafilin: 67).
