Remembrance of Allah can be done in many different ways. Dhikr of Allah can be done by thinking of Allah but when it comes to glorifying Allah there are limitless amounts of words and ways we can do this.
Just like there are many ways to remember Allah there are many benefits of the dhikr of Allah. When we mention and remember Allah, Allah also remembers us. He mentioned this in the Quran “remember Me and I will also remember you.” We also know from the hadith that Allah said “whoever remembers Me in a gathering, I will remember him in a gathering that is greater than that.” By remembering Allah, we get the opportunity to be remembered by Allah.
Another benefit of remembering Allah is that the hearts find rest and contentment. Allah also gives us strength when we remember Allah. This is such a beautiful reminder!
