Thikr (Rememberance) – a thought by Imam Abdul Latif Finch

zikr

Many of us find it terribly hard to enjoy thikr.

Remembrance is a good thing, we know it, but we don’t actually enjoy it.

We do other things for pleasure, frankly.

What we need to understand is that thikr is God’s pleasure.

When we please God our souls are pleased.

When our souls are pleased we are content.

When we are content we always remember why.

When we remember why we are thankful.

This causes us to say, “al hamdu lillah” from our soul to its Creator…pleased and pleasing, inshallah.
