The Real Purpose & Meaning of Dzikr


بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Khwaja Naswr ad-Din ‘Ubaydullah al-Ahrar (q.s.) said, “The real meaning of dzikr is inward awareness of Allah (s.w.t.).  The purpose of dzikr is to attain this consciousness.  The purpose of the dzikr is to keep one’s heart and attention entirely focused on the Beloved in love and devotion.  The dzikr is not just repeated as words, but is in the heart.”
