The Virtues of Remembrance (1)
The Messenger of Allah (1) said: "Shall I not tell you the most in goodness of your deeds, the nicest to Your Owner, the highest in your ranks, better for you than spending gold and silver, and better for you than meeting your enemy whereupon you strike their necks and they strike your necks?" They said "Yes O' Messenger of Allah." He said: "Remembrance of Allah."
