The One Who Never Forgot Allah (s.w.t.)

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

In the Qur’an, mankind is “an-naas”, “the ones who forget”.  This term applies to every single person except one - the Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.).  He alone was never in a state of ghaflah, heedlessness.

There are many verses in the Qur’an where Allah (s.w.t.) Begins with, “And remember when ...”  Our Rabb does not Say things in vain.  When He Addresses the Prophet (s.a.w.) about events that happened since the beginning of time, from the Creation of Adam (a.s.) and the peoples that came before, it can only mean that the Prophet (s.a.w.) was there.  Our Prophet (s.a.w.) was the very first Creation.  When the Nur of Muhammad (s.a.w.) was Created, it looked around and saw nothing except Allah (s.w.t.) and it uttered, “Laa ilaha illa Allah,” meaning, that there is absolutely nothing except Allah (s.w.t.).

He was the first Created and the last Sent.  And his entire purpose is to tell us that there is absolutely nothing except Allah (s.w.t.).  Our relation to Allah (s.w.t.), our access to that dzawq, taste, in the realities of tawhid is the Prophet (s.a.w.), and that is why we also say, “Muhammadar Rasulullah”.  It is only fitting that the one who never forgot his God is the one to bring us back to remembrance, dzikr.
