The Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“The loners (Mufarridun) lead the way.”

We asked: Who are the loners?

He replied:

“Those men and women who remember Allah abundantly.”

Muslim (no.2676)

Be one who remembers Allah under all conditions;

For the remembrance of Allah has no time restrictions.

The remembrance of the Deity, in private and public;

Will remove your anxiety and grief, and expel it.

Procuring both religious and worldly excellence;

Driving away [evil] whispering at their occurrence.

The Chosen One informed his Companions one day;

Abundant remembrance is why the loners lead the way.

To seek Allah’s aid was Mu’adh’s given legacy;

So as to remember, thank and worship Him beautifully.

He advised a person who sought sincere council;

Who was striving hard to carry out laws [legal ways].

To let your tongue remain moist with it;

This will aid every matter and facilitate it.

He informed that dhikr is a plant for its people;

Cultivating Gardens eternal and abodes perpetual.

He informed that Allah mentions His servant;

And is with him in all matters, facilitating it.

If dihkr had no virtue fine;

Except being a path to loving Divine.

Stopping the youth from backbiting and tale-carrying;

And from uttering that which corrupts their well-being.

A great acquisition and an incentive it would be;

To engage in Allah’s dhikr, abundantly.

But due to our ignorance our dhikr is rare;

Just as our worship of the Deity is rare.
