1) REMEMBER THE PURPOSE OF OUR CREATION
“Innalillahi wa inna elahi rajioon.”
“… Indeed we belong to Allah , and indeed to Him we will return” (2:156).
"Allahumma jurni fee museebatee wa ‘akhliflee khayran minhaa." (1)
"Oh Allah take me out of my plight and bring to me after it something better".
2) INCREASE IN DUA AND PRAISE
Indeed, Allah (subhannahu wa ta’ala) promises the one who engages in dhikr inner peace:
“…Unquestionably, by the remembrance of Allah hearts are assured.” (13:28)
“There is no deity except You; exalted are You. Indeed, I have been of the wrongdoers.” (21:87)
Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) heard his supplication and saved him from his trials:
“And had he not been of those who exalt Allah, He would have remained inside its belly until the Day they are resurrected.” (37:143-144)
This is indeed a great example for us to follow.
3) CREATE AN ATMOSPHERE OF FAITH IN THE HOME
Home should be a place for the remembrance of Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala).
“... and make your houses [facing the] qiblah and establish prayer..” (10:87).
“And We send down of the Qur'an that which is healing and mercy for the believers...” (17:82).
