Friday Khutbah – “Remember Me, I Will Mention You” (2:152)
This khutbah was given on Friday, May 4, 2012.
Abu Muhammad al-Maghribee
فَاذْكُرُونِي أَذْكُرْكُمْ وَاشْكُرُواْ لِي وَلاَ تَكْفُرُونِ
Therefore remember Me (by praying, glorifying, etc.). I will remember you, and be grateful to Me (for My countless Favours on you) and never be ungrateful to Me. (Al-Baqarah 2:152)
This is a topic of utmost importance… Dhikr (remembrance) of Allah.
Imaam as-Sa’adee, rahimahullah, said that the Dhikr of Allah is one of the GREATEST means to attain success!
And look at how easy it is. It doesn’t cost money. It doesn’t make you tired or hungry. It doesn’t take you away from your business.
Yet how many of us are negligent in this. We should not simply reserve the time of prayer for the Remembrance of Allah. Rather we should remember Him in all of our affairs; while buying and selling, working, walking here and there, while doing household duties, and more….
And may Allah make us all from those mentioned in Surat al-Ahzaab:
وَالذَّاكِرِينَ اللَّهَ كَثِيراً وَالذَّاكِرَاتِ أَعَدَّ اللَّهُ لَهُم مَّغْفِرَةً وَأَجْرًا عَظِيمًا
….And the men and the women who remember Allâh much with their hearts and tongues (while sitting, standing, lying, etc.), Allâh has prepared for them forgiveness and a great reward (i.e. Paradise). (Al-Ahzab 33:35)
