Our Master (SAW) states:
كلمتان خفیفتان على اللسان ثقیلتان في المیزان: سبحان الله وبحمده سبحان الله العظیم.
“Kalimatani khafifatani ‘alallisani thaqilatani fil mizaan: Subhanallah Wabihamdihi Subhanallahil Atheem.” He says there are two words that are light on the tongue meaning it is easy to say but are heavy on the weighing scale. Which scale? The scale in the Day of Judgment. It is a very easy thing in this world and people do not give it much importance, but it will be so heavy in the hereafter and will weigh so much.
Glorifying Allah is a big worship. Zikrs are also beneficial things for people. Now, some people have appeared in End Times who say, “There is no zikr. There is no this and there is no that,” but there is. Here, the holy hadith of our Holy Prophet (SAW). There are many like it. They are strong hadiths too, what they call “sahih”. These hadiths are the path our Holy Prophet (SAW) showed us. Our Holy Prophet shows us the way of beauty.
Son of man did not come to eat, drink, and stroll. He will do these too, but along with these he will make zikr of Allah and glorify Allah. The more he glorifies the more it is beneficial. It is beneficial for himself. It would not benefit Allah Azza wa Jalla. Allah Almighty and Glorious be He does not need it. If the whole of humanity did good or evil, it would neither harm nor benefit Allah Azza wa Jalla. Allah Azza wa Jalla is treating us. These are treats from His grace.
We do this a hundred times every day. There are other glorifications (tasbihat) too and doing them has many benefits as well. So it has benefits for people other than rewards. There are both external and internal benefits. Therefore, it is a duty upon us to thank and glorify Allah. We should not forget it. Those who forget would fall into distress, stay in distress, and cannot be in relief. When distress occurs, make zikr of Allah and make salawat on our Holy Prophet (SAW). Through their means it would be a healing and the distress would go away. May Allah make His zikr continuous in our hearts Inshallah.
Wa Minallah at-Tawfeeq. Al-Fatiha.
