Anas narrated that the Messenger of Allah ‫ ﺻﻠﻰ ﷲ ﻋﻠﻴﻪ و ﺳﻠم‬passed by a tree whose
lea$es were dry% &e hit the tree with his s'(k and the lea$es of the tree s(a)ered% &e
(then) said: “Al &amdulillahi wa Subhaan Allaah wa La ilaha ilallaahu wa-Allaahu
Akbar - (this statement) remo$es sins from the sla$e of Allaah like the (falling) lea$es
of this tree%”

[At-Tirmidhi; (lassed as hasan by al-Albani]

1% The Prophet ‫ ﺻﻠﻰ ﷲ ﻋﻠﻴﻪ و ﺳﻠم‬used the most perfe(t example to illustrate a point,
whi(h was simple, (lear and easy to remember% This is the kind of example we should
employ when trying to (ommuni(ate points e5e('$ely%

2% Dhikr is the lifeline of a Muslim that leads to sal$a'on% Allaah ‫ ﺳﺑﺣﺎﻧﻪ و ﺗﻌﺎﻟﻰ‬says:
"…and the men and the women who remember Allaah mu(h with their hearts and
tongues% Allaah has prepared for them forgi$eness and a great reward%" [transla'on
of al-Ahzab:35]

3% The Prophet ‫ ﺻﻠﻰ ﷲ ﻋﻠﻴﻪ و ﺳﻠم‬said: “The example of the one who remembers his
Lord in (omparison with the one who does not remember his Lord is that of the li$ing
and the dead%” [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

4% Allaah ‫ ﺳﺑﺣﺎﻧﻪ و ﺗﻌﺎﻟﻰ‬has pro$ided in:nite ways and means to a)ain &is Mer(y and
;orgi$eness - through spee(h and a('on% An example amongst (ountless others:

- The Prophet ‫ ﺻﻠﻰ ﷲ ﻋﻠﻴﻪ و ﺳﻠم‬said, “Whoe$er says ‫ﺳﺑ َْﺣﺎنَ اﻟﻠّ ِﻪ وَ ِﺑ َﺣﻣْ ِد ِه‬
ُ (Subhan Allaahi
wa bi-&amdihi) one hundred 'mes a day, will be forgi$en all his sins e$en if they are
like the foam of the sea%" [Saheeh Bukhari, 8/414]

Page 1
Dhikr - Lifeline of a Muslim
- The Prophet ‫ ﺻﻠﻰ ﷲ ﻋﻠﻴﻪ و ﺳﻠم‬is reported to ha$e said, "Verily, when the
worshipper stands to pray, all of his sins are pla(ed on his head and shoulders, so
whene$er he bows or prostrates his sins fall o5 from him%" [Saheeh al-Jaami, no%
1671]

As Muslims, we must learn and seek the ways that lead to in(rease of good deeds
and remo$al of sins - thus leading to Allaah's Pleasure% And from amongst the easiest
and most pra('(al ways are through dhikr; memorising some adhkar and keeping out
tongues moist with them% What follows are some beau'ful and rewarding (olle('ons
of dhikr that ha$e been taken from the Sunnah of the Messenger
