Tariqatunas sohba, wal khayru fil jamiyya
We went and came back from our travel (to the UK) safe and sound. The brothers and sisters (ikhwan) and those who love us were happy. We were happy as well thank Allah. This was a trip for Allah (JJ). You see that people who go there are worldly people. People who go after the world are at a loss with shopping and at a loss with everything they do. Everything is useless, unnecessary, because they do not remember Allah. No matter how important they know it to be it is of no benefit.
Wherever you go, you need to go for Allah. If you make sure everything you do is for the sake of Allah, wherever you go Allah would write you good deeds and your station would rise. Our Holy Prophet (SAW) has a hadith. He says, “Intentions are important.” Because Allah is in the hearts of those who have a pure intention. They do not forget Allah, and it would be like they are continuously thanking Allah and making zikr of Allah. Allah would write a good deed for every move of theirs.
This is the meaning of zikr. They call this the zikr of the heart. It is very important in our Naqshbandi Tariqa. Not with the tongue but making zikr with the heart is more important. Zikr means remembering Allah and not forgetting about Allah. It is important. Let Allah be on your side wherever you go in the world. So Allah is certainly near, yet you need to keep Him in mind and keep Him in your heart so that time all your actions would be good.
If not, if you forget Allah and you say, “Let me do this. Nobody would see us if we did this. Nothing would happen if we swindled this person,” that time evil can be done easily. However, when you remember and make zikr of Allah, only goodness comes to a person’s mind. And this is what is important. We need to make zikr in our heart at all times and not forget Allah. May Allah make us amongst those who remember Him (zakir). May He make us amongst those who do not forget Him. May Allah not be against us. May He be with us Inshallah.
