Everything done by following Rasûlullah stands for dhikr.



This letter, written to Khwâja Sharâfaddîn-i Huseyn, explains that everything done so as to follow Rasûlullah is dhikr:

Alhamdu-l-illâhi wa salâmun ’ibâdihil ladhî-n-astafâ. The letter which my dear son sent through Mawlâna ’Abd-ur-Rashîd and Mawlâna Jân Muhammad has reached us, together with the sum of the votive offering. May Allâhu ta’âlâ bestow the best things upon you in return! We are glad to hear that you are in good health.

O my son! This time of yours is a chance. And chance is a great blessing. Time that is spent in good health and without care is a rare blessing. Every hour should be spent remembering Allâhu ta’âlâ. Everything, even buying and selling, done in obedience to Rasûlullah, will become dhikr. Then, every action, every attitude should be adapted to Rasûlullah. Thus all of them will become dhikr. Dhikr means to expel unawareness.[1] That is, it means to remember Allâhu ta’âlâ. When one observes Allah’s commands and prohibitions in one’s every action, every deed, one will be secure against forgetting about the Owner of the commandments and prohibitions and will always remember Him.
