Tell me something I can cling to.” He said, “Your tongue should remain moist with the remembrance of Allah.” (at-Tirmidhi)
Abu Huryara reported that the Messenger of Allah said, “Allah Almighty says, ‘I am in My slave’s opinion of Me and I am with Him when He remembers Me. When he remembers Me in himself, I mention him in Myself. If he mentions Me in an assembly, I mention him in a better assembly than them.’ If he comes near Me by a handspan, I come near him a cubit. If he comes near Me by a cubit, I come near a fathom. When he comes to walking, I come to him running.” (Muslim and al-Bukhari, Ahmad has at the end of it, Qatada said, “Allah is quicker to forgive.”)
Abu’d-Darda’ reported that the Messenger of Allah said, “Shall I inform you of the best of your actions and the purest of your property and the highest of your degrees and what is better for you than spending gold and silver and better for you than encountering the enemy and striking their necks and their striking your necks?” They said, “Yes, indeed!” He said, “Remembrance of Allah Almighty.” MuÔadh ibn Jabal said, “There is nothing which saves from the punishment of Allah more than remembrance of Allah.” (Ahmad, Ibn Abi’d-Dunya, at-Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah)
Abu Musa reported that the Messenger of Allah said, “If one man has some dirhams in his possession which he divides and another remembers Allah, the one who remembers Allah is better.” One variant has, “There is no sadaqa better than remembrance of Allah.” (at-Tabarani)
Umm Anas reported that she said, “Messenger of Allah, command me.” He said, “Avoid acts of disobedience: that is the best jihad. Do a lot of invoking Allah. You do not bring Allah anything he loves more than a lot of remembrance.” (at-Tabarani. In one variant, “Remember Allah a lot. It is the action which Allah loves most to reveive.” At-Tabarani notes that Umm Anas is not the mother of Anas ibn Malik.)
