Introduction

Allah created mankind to be tested in life . Allah said: ((who has created death and life that he may test you which of you is best in deed and he is the ALL-Mighty , the Oft- Forgiving )) .

Mankind purpose of life should be to elevate oneself to the highest spiritual levels , this should be done to gain ALLAH's blessing and paradise , ALLAH said : (( indeed the succeed who purifies his ownself and indeed he fails who corrupts his ownself )) .

As such , Islam came as a constitutional system for life . it is essential to first isolate oneself from all criminal and satanic ways of thinking before applying the Islamic justice . The result of this will bring Muslim to become the inheritant of earth in this life; and paradise in the hereafter . ALLAH said : (( so flee to ALLAH . verily , I am a plain Warner to you from him )) . which means fleeing to ALLAH's obedience and rewards.

For these reasons , we were asked to pray five times a day and the remembrance of ALLAH's name at all times ; because remembering ALLAH prevents wrong doing , and straights the Muslim behavior . ALLAH said (( in the remembrance of ALLAH do hearts find rest )) . AISHAH "may ALLAH be pleased with her'' narrated that prophet Muhammad "pbuh" was in remembrance at ALLAH at every occasion .

commands for remembering ALLAH

Prophet Muhammad commanded us to remember ALLAH , he "pbuh" said {keep your tongue full in remembering ALLAH . ALLAH said :

(( therefor remember ME ; I will remember you , and be grateful to ME and never be ungrateful to me ))

ALLAH also said : (( o you who believe remember ALLAH with much remembrance ))

ALLAH has placed those who remember him at the heights rightful levels . he said : ((and the men who remember ALLAH much with their hearts and tongues ALLAH has prepared for them forgiveness and a great reward )) .

ALLAH said in the holy saying narrated by prophet Mohammad "once a group of people gather to remember ALLAH , ALLAH will have his angels surrounding them , and they will be blessed "the prophet also said " Allah will bring upon you a group of people , in their faces bright light , sitting on seats of diamond , loved by humans , they are not messengers nor they are people who came together from different trips , met on the love of ALLAH and met to remember him } .

TYPES OF REMEMBERANCE

1- Remembering ALLAH by your tongue and the best of that is saying "their is no good but ALLAH , to him belong every thing , to him we praise , and he is the one with power over all things .

2- Asking for forgiveness , seeking education , getting a good job , and

thinking about the creation of ALLAH , In Fact ; every thing that

A Muslim does is a form of ALLAH's remembrance. playing with your kids or mate can also be a form of remembering ALLAH for as long as the intentions are made as such .

3- Humbleness. ALLAH said : (( the believers are only those who when ALLAH is mentioned feel a fear in their hearts and when his verses are recited unto them they increase their faith and they put their trust in their LORD )).

4- Lowering your voice . ALLAH said : (( and remember your Lord within yourself humbly and with fear and without loudness in words in the morning and in the afternoon and be not of those who are neglectful )) .

5- Being clean when praying or at the mosque, or being among those who remember ALLAH .

TURNING AWAY FROM REMEMBERING ALLAH

He whoever turns away from praying and from remembering ALLAH , will be guild by the devil and will be miss lead the astray path .

ALLAH said : ((and whosoever turns away blindly from remembrance of the Most Gracious , we appoint for him Satan-evil to be a companion to him )) . Those will be left astray . and ALLAH will seal their hearts , and put a cover on their sights so they will not see the way to the straight path . ALLAH said : (( nay ! but on their hearts is the covering of sins and evil deeds which they used to earn )) .

Those people who would not remember ALLAH will have problematic life .

ALLAH said (( but whosoever turns away from my reminder verily for him is a life of hardship, and we shall raise him up blind on the day of resurrection )) .

And then; and only then ;they might remember ALLAH and come back to his remembrance . ALLAH said : (( and verily we will make them taste of the near torment prior to the supreme torment in order that they may return )) .

· Some sayings are written and well-known , the best of which is to say

"their is no good but ALLAH " . The messengers (pbuh) "whenever

A slave of ALLAH says their is no god but ALLAH , the doors of the skies and heavens will stay open till the words reach the throne of ALLAH (s.w.).

· if something troubles you , or a news bothers you , you can say " their is no help nor their is power , but from ALLAH" . The prophet(pbuh) said that saying that is like a medicine for some ninety nine sicknesses , one of which is worrying .
