Two Types of Zikr (Praise of Allah Ta'ala)

Untitled Document

.....................................................................................................................

As has been mentioned, numerous times, there are two types of Zikr (Praise of Allah Ta'ala) : Positive Zikr (Praise of Allah Ta'ala) and Negative Zikr (Praise of Allah Ta'ala).

Positive Zikr (Praise of Allah Ta'ala) entails fulfilling the rights of Allah Ta’ala. Thus, an Aashiq of Allah Ta’ala performs his Salaah, pays his Zakaat, fasts in the month of Ramadaan, performs Haj and fulfills the rights of  everyone. Everything done is in perfect obedience to Allah Ta’ala, with an enthusiasm and an eagerness to please his Beloved Allah.

The negative aspect of Zikr (Praise of Allah Ta'ala) necessitates abstinence from all things that are displeasing to Allah Ta’ala; those actions and deeds which He has declared as Haraam (forbidden).

subheading-iconThe Demands of Love


Ishq or Love has two demands :
             1.) To do that which pleases the Beloved.
             2.) To refrain from anything and everything that      
                   displeases the Beloved.

Allah Ta’ala says :

“…But those who have Imaan are more intense in their love for Allah…”

When we say that we believe in Allah then this is, no doubt, a great claim of Love.

Allah Ta’ala is thus addressing the Believers : You have already brought Imaan in Me. You have acknowledged Me as your Rabb (Sustainer). It should not be difficult for you to do that which I ask of you and to stay away from that which I dislike, because you claim to have Imaan. You claim to be My lovers…

For the beloveds of this world, our tongues are so quick and accustomed to utter, on any request made, the adage and catch phrase of love : “For you…a n y t h i n g…”. Can the love for the Creator of all beauty be anything less ?

The hearts of those who have Imaan, those who love Allah intensely and who have thus understood the demands of Love, announce and declare : “For You, O Allah…a n y t h i n g…”

We, who are insincere claimants of Allah’s Love, should understand and believe that no one knows better than Allah as to what is good and what is bad for us.

Thus, the proof of sincere love is the fulfillment of both demands. This then is the fulfillment of the requirements of Zikr (Praise of Allah Ta'ala)ullah.

If we are making Zikr (Praise of Allah Ta'ala) with our tongues but we are not fulfilling these two requirements then we just get sawaab (reward) for taking the name of Allah. We cannot, however, make the claim that we are true and sincere lovers of Allah Ta’ala.
