I don't know how to say this. It is the most simple thing to say. But a most profound and powerful thing in relation to real life.
According to Hadith Sharif, there is no better or more powerful Du'a -- I wish Muslims will realize that this is what a real "prayer" or supplication is, not Salaah -- than Alhamdulillah!
Nor is there a more powerful and profound Dhikr than La Ilaaha Illallah!
I cannot help wondering how many (so-called) Good Muslims tend to look down their nose on the concept and practice of Dhikr.
Here, by Good Muslims I have in mind the Jama'at-e-Islami type. But I am simply not comfortable saying it.
But there, I have said it anyway.
I hope -- and I wish -- more of them will turn to more of Allah's Dhikr in their everyday life.
There is a description of the Sahaabah Kiraam, Radiyallahu Anhum, in Hadith, I think:
Ruhbaanun Billayil, Fursaanun Binnahaar.
Roughly paraphrased, it means:
"Warriors by day, monks by night."
Allahu Akbar! What a description! What a character sketch.
I hope this Hadith Sharif will help the Good Muslims of today to reset their bearings.
In today's world, you can add to "Warriors by Day" the following -- purely by way of example:
Householders by Day.
Business People by Day.
Social Workers by Day.
Citizens and Bureaucrats by Day.
Teachers and Professors and Students by Day.
Politicians and Professionals by Day.
Media People by Day.
Workers for Allah by Day.
And Everything Else!
