Dhikr is to be Performed as Much as Possible – Ibn Abbas in Tafseer Ibn Kathir

Alee ibn Abee Talhah (rahimahullah) reported that Ibn Abbas (Allah be pleased with them both) stated regarding Allah The Most High’s statement

‎اذكروا الله ذكرا كثيرا

Remember Allah with much remembrance. (Al-Ahzaab:41)

Verily, Allah did not obligate an obligation upon his servants except that he legislated a fixed limit for it (1), and then excused its performers when they are in a situation when they are excused (2), except in the case of dhikr (remembrance of Allah) for indeed Allah did not legislate a limit for it and nor is a person excused for abandoning it, except when compelled. Allah said,

 فَٱذۡڪُرُواْ ٱللَّهَ قِيَـٰمً۬ا وَقُعُودً۬ا وَعَلَىٰ جُنُوبِڪُمۡ
remember Allah standing, sitting down, and (lying down) on your sides (An-Nisaa:103)

night and day, at land or sea, whilst travelling or resident, when wealthy and in times of poverty, in sickness and in health, in private and public and in all circumstances, He, The Mighty and Majestic said,

‎و سبحوه بكرة و أصيلا

 And glorify His Praises morning and afternoon [the early morning (Fajr) and ‘Asr prayers]. (Al-Ahzaab:42)

so if you were to do that (in the manner mentioned by ibn Abbas (Allah be pleased with them both)) then Allah will send His Blessings upon you, and the Angels will supplicate for you.

Tafsir Al-Qur’aan Al-‘Adheem ibn Katheer vol.11 pgs.182-183

(1) e.g. obligatory prayers are a fixed number (five) with set number of raka’aat, obligatory fasts of Ramadhan are one month every calendar year.
(2) e.g. a traveller, sick person does not have to fast obligatory fasts, the woman on her menses does not pray or fast etc

How to Remove Calamities – Shaykh Al-Fawzaan

If a person is put to trial and a calamity befalls him, what is the thing which will remove it from him? And how does a person turn to Allaah – The Mighty and Majestic – for protection, deliverance, help – whilst he is in this situation in which he is put to trial through these illnesses?

Through supplication; Allah will remove it from him through supplication. He invokes Allah to remove from him that which has afflicted him and to relieve him of it. Allah is Near [to all by his knowledge] Responsive [to the supplication of the one who supplicates to Him]. [Al-Hūd:61]

Secondly, if this calamity or affliction is due to a sin, then verily he repents to Allāh from this sin – from those sins which is the reason behind this punishment that came upon him.

[1] Reminder And Reflection From Some of The Supplications of The Prophets: [Aadam (alayhis salaam)]

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.

Allaah [The Most High] said that Aadam and Hawwaa [alayhimas salaam] said: [رَبَّنَا ظَلَمۡنَآ أَنفُسَنَا وَإِن لَّمۡ تَغۡفِرۡ لَنَا وَتَرۡحَمۡنَا لَنَكُونَنَّ مِنَ ٱلۡخَـٰسِرِينَ – Our Lord! We have wronged ourselves. If You forgive us not, and bestow not upon us Your Mercy, we shall certainly be of the losers]- Meaning: Indeed, we committed the sin You forbade us from committing; we have harmed ourselves by committing the sin and have fallen into that which is a cause of loss unless you forgive us, wipe away the consequences of the sin and the punishment attached to it; grant us mercy by accepting our repentance and [free us from the calamity, harms etc] of the likes of these mistakes. So, Allaah forgave them just as Allaah stated:

وَعَصَىٰٓ ءَادَمُ رَبَّهُ ۥ فَغَوَىٰ

ثُمَّ ٱجۡتَبَـٰهُ رَبُّهُ ۥ فَتَابَ عَلَيۡهِ وَهَدَىٰ

Thus did Adam disobey his Lord, so he went astray. Then his Lord chose him, and turned to him with forgiveness, and gave him guidance. [Surah Tahaa. Aayaat 21-22]

Aadam attained success through five affairs: Acknowledgement of his sin, showed regret, blamed himself, hasten towards repentance and did not lose hope in Allaah’s Mercy. And Iblees was condemned to wretchedness through five affairs: He did not acknowledge his sin, he was not regretful, he did not blame himself, rather he blamed his Lord; he did not repent and he lost hope in Allaah’s Mercy. [Fiqhul Ad’iyah Wal adkaar vol 4/343-346]

Withholding from supplicating for the Muslim Rulers – Shaykh Al Fawzaan

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

What do you say about the one who says its not a must for him to supplicate for the (Muslim) ruler?

(You say this) because you do not love the ruler, and this is a proof of hypocrisy. The ruler of the Muslims is loved, this is the way of the believers, that they love the Muslim rulers and make dua for their success and their guidance and for them to be aided (by Allah), because their guidance is guidance for the Muslims. And if they are guided, Allah benefits the Muslims by them.

Supplicating for them is from Sincere advice, and the Religion is sincere advice to Allah, his messenger, the rulers of the muslims and the general people. (1)

And the salaf used to supplicate for the Muslim rulers upon the minbar, supplicating for their success and rectification and their guidance because this is rectification of the Muslims and a benefit for the Muslims. (2)

And this (statement) is not possible except from he who has a soul of the khawaarij, a soul of hypocrisy.
And Allah’s refuge is sought.

From the lecture:
أسباب محبة الله
(1) The famous hadith of Tameem Ad-Daarimi (May Allah be pleased with him) as reported in Saheeh Muslim

(2) It is reported that Al-Fudayl bin Ayyad [Allah have mercy on him] said, ‘If I had one supplication that was going to be answered I would make it for the ruler (imam), for the wellbeing and righteousness of the imam means wellbeing for the land and its people.’

Al-Dhahabi, Siyar A’lam Al-Nubala` in his biography of Al-Fudayl b. Ayyad.

We ask Allah The Lord of the Tremendous Throne to rectify the affairs of our Muslim rulers, to make them from the righteous and to benefit Islaam and the Muslims by way of them. آمين

Is Supplicating for the Ruler Wrong? Shaykh Al-Fawzaan (hafidahullah)

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم


Supplication for the Rulers of the Muslims is from the Methodology of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaa’ah, and abandoning it is from the methodology of the innovators.

Imam Ahmad said, “If we only had one supplication that was accepted, we would have supplicated for the ruler, because with his rectification lies the rectification of the Muslims.”

And indeed this sunnah has been abandoned to the extent that people find supplicating for the rulers strange and have bad thoughts regarding whoever does. 

Fasting People Take Advantage and Supplicate to Allāh – Shaykh Uthaymīn

وَإِذَا سَأَلَكَ عِبَادِي عَنِّي فَإِنِّي قَرِيبٌ أُجِيبُ دَعْوَةَ الدَّاعِ إِذَا دَعَانِ فَلْيَسْتَجِيبُوا لِي وَلْيُؤْمِنُوا بِي لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْشُدُونَ

And when My slaves ask you (O Muhammad sallallāhu alaihi wa salam) concerning Me, then (answer them), I am indeed near (to them by My Knowledge). I respond to the invocations of the supplicant when he calls on Me (without any mediator or intercessor). So let them obey Me and believe in Me, so that they may be led aright. (Al-Baqarah: 186)

Benefits Extracted from this Verse for the Fasting Person:

Supplicating to Allāh whilst fasting is one of the times where supplications are most likely to be answered. This is because Allāh mentioned this verse within the verses of fasting. Especially since He spoke about it at the end of His speech regarding the verses of fasting.

Some of the scholars said, There is another benefit extracted from this verse: it is befitting to supplicate at the end of the fasting day, (i.e. before Maghrib, at point of opening fast).

Shaykh Uthaymīn (rahimahullāh) said,

This is one of the best times to supplicate, as the fasting person is weak and the weaker a person is, the more softer and open his heart is.  This person is more likely to turn repentantly to Allāh and to lower and submit himself to Allāh.
