Limitless blessings. Sounds like a dream, doesn’t it? This is what the remembrance of Allah has come to mean to me. Blessing that never leave, lasting eternally as far as the eye can see. Blessings not dependent on other people, but something that one can do anywhere at anytime without any fear. SubhanAllah, Alhamdulillah, Allahuakbar and all other phrases directly and immediately connect the reciter with Allah, the Kind and Mighty Creator of EVERYTHING! Words that serve to strengthen and protect one from the evil that exists in the world, and evil that would rather remain unseen and forgotten so that it can have the most advantage in hurting and attacking humanity.
Truly ignorance in this case is not bliss. Because of the nature of human beings, we are a creation that needs to be constantly reminded and in contact with that higher being called Allah. We get distracted and forgetful. We are weak. We are needy. But with the Zikr of Allah, one person can become strong and remember those important things that need to be remembered. Like the yin yang symbol, humans have within them darkness and light, seen (physical body) and unseen (the soul) and carry the potential for greatness and failure. We can ascend heights unimaginable or fall to the depths below; it’s our choice.
But human beings are not alone in this battle to be whole. Allah has provided guidance in the form of written and spoken words, Special Words with great power and sublimity that lead us straight to the One who answers our needs, fulfills promises, and will never forsake us so long as we never forsake His remembrance and keep Him highest in the heart. La ilaha ill Allah! SubhanAllahu and Allahuakbar forever! These blessings are greater in worth than the earth and all it contains and heavier that the heaviest thing we can imagine. It is this that I love more in life, that connection to Allah through His words, and by this I do achieve the peace that I crave.
