Similar is the case of associating good hopes with Allah. Unless a person does not furnish the foundation of Faith
and good deeds for it, it will be unwise to associate good hopes with Allah. A slave who rather than serving his
master runs away or annoys him and still hopes that his master being so kind will not take him to task for his
excesses would be called stupid by the people. The same is true of Allah, who is certainly the Most Compassionate,
the Most Merciful and Forgiving. But for whom is He so? The answer is for His faithful and obedient slaves and not
for those who are followers of Satan. For Satan and his followers, Allah's Decision is that: "
I will fill Hell with you
(Iblis) and those of them (mankind) that follow you, together.
'' (38:85).

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
Mufarridun have gone ahead
.'' He was asked, "Who are the Mufarridun?'' He (PBUH) replied, "
Those men and
women who frequently celebrate the remembrance of Allah
This Hadith highlights the following two points: First, the eminence of plentiful remembrance of
Allah. People who have this quality will be ahead of others in reward on the Day of Judgement. Second, people who
remember Allah and are obedient to Him, be they men or women, will be rewarded equally. In the matter of reward
no distinction will be made on the basis of their gender.

Jabir (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) saying, "
The best
way to celebrate the remembrance of Allah is to say: La ilaha illallah (there is no true god except Allah)
Since the Shahadah is the basis of Islam, its repetition in abundance has the greatest eminence. Some
religious scholars regard only La ilaha illallah as eminent, while others hold that the second part of it (
Muhammad is
the Messenger of Allah)
is also included in it. Thus, in their opinion both these parts of the Shahadah should be
recited together.

`Abdullah bin Busr (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: One of the Companions said, "O Messenger of
Allah. There are many injunctions of Islam for me. So tell me something to which I may hold fast.'' He said, "
your tongue wet with the remembrance of Allah
Shara'i` is the plural of Shari`ah Shari`ah is in the sense of Mashru`ah, that is the Divine injunctions.
These Divine injunctions are of various kinds, i.e., some of them are obligatory, some desirable and some voluntary.
The obligatory ones are compulsory and their compliance is indispensable. What is termed as Mustahabbat
) are also highly important for gaining the Pleasure of Allah. Similarly, voluntary acts are a means of
getting close to Allah. Ordinary people are sometimes puzzled by the abundance of the latter and want to adhere to
the first two, that is obligations and what comes in the category of desirables. A desire to this effect is mentioned in
this Hadith. The Prophet (PBUH) answered the query in this matter by saying to the inquirer, "Keep your tongue wet
with the remembrance of Allah.'' Keeping the tongue wet with the remembrance of Allah here means its abundant
recitation. In other words, one should make the remembrance of Allah a permanent feature. If one is not able to do
many voulntary good works, which some people find difficult, the remembrance of Allah will make up the
deficiency in that regard.
