To Gain the True Benefit of Zikrullah one has to Refrain from all Types of Sin

  Adapted from a Zikr Majlis of Moulana Naeem Motala
 29/09/2016 ~ Musjid e Noor ~ Durban ~ South Africa

One of the obligations of a Believer, is to gain close proximity to Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala through perpetual Zikrullah.

Allah Ta’ala says in the Qur’aan Shareef:

فَاذْكُرُونِي أَذْكُرْكُمْ

“Remember Me, and I will remember you.” (2:152)

By taking the name of Allah, a person gains the consciousness of Allah and is reminded that Ar~Raqeeb (The Watchful One), is witnessing us in every single thing we do and say. To become a Muqarrab (close friend/Intimate companion of Allah), a daily spiritual diet of Zikrullah is necessary to purge and wash away the impurities that engulf the heart as a result of sin.

Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam used to stand up at night in Tahujjud Salaah and recite the following verses :

إِنَّ فِي خَلْقِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَاخْتِلَافِ اللَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ لَآيَاتٍ لِّأُولِي الْأَلْبَابِ

الَّذِينَ يَذْكُرُونَ اللَّهَ قِيَامًا وَقُعُودًا وَعَلَىٰ جُنُوبِهِمْ وَيَتَفَكَّرُونَ فِي خَلْقِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ رَبَّنَا مَا خَلَقْتَ هَٰذَا بَاطِلًا سُبْحَانَكَ فَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ

Verily, in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alternation of the night and the day are signs for those of understanding … Who remember Allah while standing or sitting or [lying] on their sides and give thought to the creation of the heavens and the earth, [saying], “Our Lord, You did not create this aimlessly; exalted are You [above such a thing]; then protect us from the punishment of the Fire. [3:190/191]

Who are the intelligent ones that Allah the Exalted mentions in the Quraan Shareef? These verses of Surah Al Imraan throw light on the importance of Zikrullah and emphasise the qualities of those Believers who are mindful (thoughtful) of Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala in all states.

Those hearts whom are engaged in Zikrullah in all conditions (sitting, standing or reclining, day and night, morning and evening) become enwrapped in peace and tranquility and the love of Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala becomes ingrained in their hearts.This abundant remembrance of Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala should however, not be transformed into a mere ritual, but should be a daily occurrence in the life of a Believer, without which the spiritual seekers heart becomes burdened by sins and laziness in Ibaadah sets in.

To Gain the True Benefit of Zikrullah one has to Refrain from all Types of Sin

Just as blood is pumped into the human heart and gives life to the heart … by continuously making Zikrullah, the spiritual doors of our souls open and allow the Noor of Allah to enter our hearts. When our limbs engage in Zikrullah, then every heartbeat of our spiritual heart says ‘Allah Allah Allah’ with us. Rewards multiply and the illumination of a Zaakir’s soul is increased as a result of Noor (spiritual effulgence and radiance) emanating.

Those who persist in sins, the Noor (light) which resides in the heart is extinguished and this veil of darkness gradually extends to all the limbs (ears, eyes, nose) becoming corrupt. Noor will be destroyed and the benefits of Zikrullah forfeited.

However, through the perpetual remembrance of Allah Ta’ala, dead hearts are revived and this torch of Noor (of Zikrullah) removes a person out of this environment of darkness and enables him to distinguish truth from falsehood.

We should therefore, strive to recharge our Imaan with A’maal e Sawlihah (righteous deeds) and attain the Qurb (closeness) of Allah Ta’ala, through polishing and purifying the heart with consistency in Zikrullah, together with refraining from sins.

Service your Heart

October 24, 2012

0 Comments


In this world, we possess appliances, machines, cars, buildings … These material possessions that we own, require maintenance and a service regularly to function optimally. If we do not repair those deficiencies that are found in them, they will become dilapidated and lose value.

Likewise, the spiritual hearts that we possess, require maintenance. For the efficient functioning of our spiritual heart, we are required to service and oil our hearts regularly …

How do we service this Soul of ours?

By making the Zikr of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala … When we recite the Zikr of Allah, then we are not depriving our spiritual heart of its nourishment and it’s regular service … If we do not maintain this spiritual heart, we will go into a spiritual ebb (a spiritual low) … Heedlessness enters our heart and we become negligent and lazy. Not being conscious of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala eventually leads to the death of the spiritual heart … We should seclude ourselves every single day for a few minutes and make Muraqabah (meditation) and the Zikr of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala

Tears of Regret ~ Moulana Naeem Motala Saheb DB

June 28, 2012

0 Comments

بِسْــــــــــــــــــمِ اَللّهُِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيم

Excerpts taken from a ‘Weekly Majlis Program’ :

We are Mu’mineen (Believers)…Have we recognized our Rabb (Allah)?…How do we reach Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala? How do we connect ourselves to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala? Let us reflect and ponder…

Allah Ta’ala says :  Whoever submits his whole self to Allah, and is a doer of good, has grasped indeed the most trustworthy hand-hold ~ Surah Luqmān 31:22

We should submit, surrender and carry out whatever Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala has commanded from us and show real Nadaamat (Regret/Remorse)…ie: feel ashamed of having committed sins…

Our hearts have become barren and desolate…They have become empty and void of the Love of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala! The moment we turn to Allah in repentance, shed those tears of Taubah and endure the pain on our hearts (of restraining our Nafs from gaining any enjoyment of sins) …This causes our hearts to bleed and the condition of this spiritual heart begins to change gradually…This is what Allah loves!

Now, as the lover takes the name of his Beloved Allah…‘This once upon a time “desolate heart” begins to bloom and blossom with the fragrant flowers of the Love of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala”…We have to fill our hearts with flowers of Taqwa…Flowers of Imaan…Flowers of Itaa’at (Obedience) of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala…When our hearts will be conquered…Then we will enjoy the ‘Noor’ of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala…(Moulana Naeem Motala Saheb DB)

“The receipt for the acceptance of a persons Du’aa are the tears that flow down his cheeks…..”
