Dhikr is defined by scholars as glorifying, exalting, praising and attributing Allah Most High with Perfection, Majesty and Beauty by both tongue and heart. (what is meant by Dhikr is the Dhikr which is in accordance to Sari'ah.) Allah Most High, says; (So, remember me, (and) I will remember you) (Al-Baqarab;152) The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) says: "The likeness of one who mentions his Lord and the one who does not, is that of the alive and dead" Some of the pious men used to say, "Unfortunate are the men of this world as they left this world while they never tasted the joys of the most good therein, "He then was asked, "What is the most good therein? He responded, "It is the love of Allah, knowing and remem?bering Him" On the authority of Ibn Abbas (may Allah be pleased with both of them) who said that, the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said: "Verily Satan is perching over one's heart. when one makes mention of Allah, Satan withdraws; but when man neglects (the Remembrance of Allah), Satan Will go on whispering (in man's heart). (Reported by Al-Bukari)
