6 EASY DHIKR TO PURIFY YOUR HEART DAILY

Purification is an ongoing process. It needs daily consistent effort. Just like we continuously wash our clothes or clean our rooms lest dirt piles up in them, we also need to regularly and consistently work on purifying our hearts.

The mission of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) included helping us purify ourselves. As Allah says:

Certainly did Allah confer [great] favor upon the believers when He sent among them a Messenger from themselves, reciting to them His verses and purifying them and teaching them the Book and wisdom, although they had been before in manifest error. (Quran 3: 164)

One of the things that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) taught us is that sins stain our hearts and take away its light.

But, there are many adhkar (prayers) that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) taught us to help us with absolving our sins daily. If you incorporate them in your daily routine, they’ll help you cleanse your heart, remain strongly connected with Allah Almighty and actively stay on the path of purification.

Here are 6 easy daily dhikr for the purification of the heart:

1- RECITING THE SPECIFIED ADHKAR AFTER PRAYER

The Prophet said:

He who recites after every prayer: Subhan-Allah (Allah is free from imperfection) 33 times; Al-hamdu lillah (praise be to Allah) 33 times; Allahu Akbar (Allah is Greatest) 33; and completes the hundred with: La ilaha illallahu, wahdahu la sharika lahu, lahul-mulku wa lahul-hamdu, wa Huwa ‘ala kulli shai’in Qadir (there is no true god except Allah. He is One and He has no partner with Him. His is the sovereignty and His is the praise, and He is Omnipotent), will have all his sins pardoned even if they may be as large as the foam on the surface of the sea. (Muslim)

2- UTTERING THESE TWO ADHKAR 100 TIMES

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said:

He who utters a 100 times in a day these words: ‘La ilaha illallahu, wahdahu la sharika lahu, lahul-mulku wa lahul-hamdu, wa Huwa ‘ala kulli sha’in Qadir (there is no true god except Allah. He is One and He has no partner with Him; His is the sovereignty and His is the praise, and He is Omnipotent),’ he will have a reward equivalent to that for emancipating ten slaves, a hundred good deeds will be recorded to his credit, hundreds of his sins will be blotted out from his scroll, and he will be safeguarded against the devil on that day till the evening; and no one will exceed him in doing more excellent good deeds except someone who has recited these words more often than him.

And he who utters: ‘Subhan-Allahi wa bihamdihi (Allah is free from imperfection and His is the praise)’ 100 times a day, his sins will be obliterated even if they are equal to the extent of the foam of the ocean. (Al-Bukhari and Muslim)

3- ENDING DAILY CONVERSATIONS/CHATS WITH THIS SUPPLICATION

The more we talk, the more we could make mistakes, fall in idle speech, heedlessness, backbiting, etc.

All of these are sins that take away the purity of our hearts. But the Prophet taught us a great way to counter that.

The Prophet said:

Whoever sits in a gathering and indulges in useless talk and before getting up supplicates: ‘Subhanaka Allahumma wa bihamdika, ash-hadu an la ilaha illa Anta, astaghfiruka wa atubu ilaika (O Allah, You are free from every imperfection; praise be to You. I testify that there is no true god except You; I ask Your Pardon and turn to You in repentance),’ he will be forgiven for (the sins he may have intentionally or unintentionally committed) in that assembly. (At-Tirmidhi)

4- RECITING THIS DHIKR AFTER THE CALL TO PRAYER

Sa’d bin Abu Waqqas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said:

He who says after the Adhan: ‘Ash-hadu an la ilaha illallah Wah-dahu la sharika Lahu; wa ash-hadu anna Muhammadan ‘abduhu wa Rasuluhu, radhitu Billahi Rabban, wa bi Muhammadin Rasulan, wa bil Islami Dinan (I testify that there is no true god except Allah Alone; He has no partners and that Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) is His slave and Messenger; I am content with Allah as my Rubb, with Muhammad as my Messenger and with Islam as my Deen),’ his sins will be forgiven. (Muslim)

5- CONSTANTLY BEING IN A STATE OF WUDU’ (ABLUTION)

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said:

Should I not direct you to something by which Allah obliterates the sins and elevates (your) ranks.” They said: “Yes, O Messenger of Allah”. He said, “Performing Wudu‘ properly, even in difficulty, frequently going to the mosque, and waiting eagerly for the next Salat (prayer) after a Salat is over; indeed, that is Ar- Ribat (steadfastness). (Muslim)

6- SINCERELY DECLARING THE ONENESS OF ALLAH ALMIGHTY

Abdullah ibn Amr narrated that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said:

There is not anyone upon the earth who says: ‘None has the right to be worshiped but Allah, and Allah is the Greatest, and there is no might nor power except by Allah, (La ilaha illa Allah, wa Allahu akbar, wa la ḥawla wa la quwwata illa billah) except that his sins shall be pardoned, even if they were like the foam of the sea. (Jami` At-Tirmidhi)

With these 6 easy adhkar daily, one makes sure that he/she are constantly mindful of Allah The Pure One who purifies His slaves and envelopes them in His Mercy, Peace and Forgiveness.

SEX BEFORE MARRIAGE AND ITS CONSEQUENCES.

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so

MUSLIMS MOURN ALI BANAT - THE MAN ‘GIFTED WITH CANCER’

It’s a sad day for all those who knew Ali Banat, the young man gifted with cancer. Ali Banat was an inspiring Australian Muslim philanthropist whose diagnosis of cancer motivated him to dedicate his life to charity work. “At this point in my life, Alhamdulillah I have been gifted by Allah with cancer throughout my body and I have changed my whole life to helping people,” he said. An Inspiration to Muslim Youth A man of a kind heart was known for his charity work over the past three years. One of his biggest achievements is MATW project, (Muslims Around The World) launched in October 2015 to assist those less fortunate in the poverty-stricken areas of Togo, Africa. He was an inspiration to Muslim youth, dedicating his big fortune to charity work. His organization built mosques and schools for the less fortunate in Africa. May Allah accept it from him! Indeed, to Allah we belong and to Him we shall return. May Allah have mercy on our brother Ali Banat and make it easy

THE MAN WHO INSPIRE MILLIONS OF MUSLIMS EVEN WHEN HE IS PASSED AWAY (ALI BANAT)

Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many. Being diagnosed with cancer is like death sentence for many. But this is not the way Australian Muslim Ali Ali Banat sees it. For him, the sickness is unquestionably a gift from Allah. “At this point in m
