"Verily, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest"

(أَلَا بِذِكْرِ اللَّـهِ تَطْمَئِنُّ الْقُلُوبُ)
 (Verily, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest.)
(Qur'an 13: 28)

Truthfulness is beloved by Allah and is purifying soap for the heart. And there is no deed that gives such pleasure to the heart, or has greater reward, than the remembrance of Allah. 

(فَاذْكُرُونِي أَذْكُرْكُمْ )
(So remember Me and I will remember you) (Qur'an 2: 152)

Remembrance of Allah is His paradise on earth, and whoever does not enter it will not enter the Paradise of the Hereafter. Remembrance is not only a safe haven from the problems and worries of this world, but it is also the short and easy path to achieving ultimate success. Read the various revealed texts that refer to the remembrance of Allah, and you will appreciate its benefits.

When you remember Allah, clouds of worry and fear are driven away, and the mountains that make up your problems are blown away.

We should not be surprised when we hear that people who remember Allah are at peace. What is truly surprising is how the negligent and unmindful survive without remembering Him.

 (أَمْوَاتٌ غَيْرُ أَحْيَاءٍ ۖ وَمَا يَشْعُرُونَ أَيَّانَ يُبْعَثُونَ )
([They are] dead, lifeless, and they know not when they will be raised up.) (Qur'an 16: 21)

O' whosoever complains of sleepless nights and is in shock over his misfortune, call out His Holy Name.

(هَلْ تَعْلَمُ لَهُ سَمِيًّا)
(Do you know of any that is similar to Him! [There is nothing like unto Him and He is the All-Hearer; the All-Seer])
(Qur'an 19: 65)

To the degree that you remember Allah, your heart will be calm and cheerful. His remembrance carries with it the meaning of total dependence upon Him, of turning to Him for aid, of having good thoughts about Him, and of waiting for victory from Him. Truly, He is near when supplicated: He hears when He is called and He answers when He is invoked, so humble yourself before Him and ask of Him sincerely. Repeat His beautiful blessed name, and mention Him as being alone worthy of worship. Mention His praises, supplicate to Him, and ask forgiveness from Him: you will then find - by the will of Allah- happiness, peace, and illumination.

(فَآتَاهُمُ اللَّـهُ ثَوَابَ الدُّنْيَا وَحُسْنَ ثَوَابِ الْآخِرَةِ)
(So Allah gave them the reward of this world and the excellent reward of the Hereafter) (Quran 3: 148)

    One of the purposes is to remind us that no matter how busy we are with our career and responsibilities, our lives must be centred on Allah swt.
    This is important because within our hearts of every man is implanted the need to constantly connect with Allah, the Almighty. If we forget about this affiliation,we will loose our sense of peace. We will be lost in a state of disarray since we have ignored our relationship with Allah swt.
    Therefore, let us continue our relationship of Taqwa with Allah swt by performing what that have been commanded and avoid what that have been prohibited so that we can attain peace through our relationship with our Creator.
