Day 6: Refuel Our Souls by Increasing Our Dzikr
"Verily in the remembrance of Allāh do hearts find rest.” (13:28)
In the midst of our busy lives, it can be hard to find time for ibadah. How can we build our connection with Allah S.W.T. while juggling our responsibilities? The answer is simple - make dzikr a constant part of our lives.
The word dzikr (ذِكْر) in Arabic means ‘remembrance’, and the act of dzikr in Islam means the remembrance of Allah S.W.T.. It’s a simple yet powerful act of worship that can change our lives. Just by remembering Allah S.W.T. in whatever we do and keeping him at the forefront of our hearts and thoughts, we strengthen our connection with our Iman and our creator.
As Allah has reminded us in this verse, by remembering Him we gain peace in our hearts, and gain the strength to do more ibadah. Dzikr can also come in many different forms; you don’t have to sit down and dedicate a large block of time to it. Recite Subhanallah while going to work, Alhamdulillah while doing the dishes, Allahu Akbar while folding clothes, and so on.
