Azkar do not have required
effects because of:
• For the one who just hears it: Committing sins
(blocks the heart; makes it hard)
• For the one who does zikr: Continuing in sins /
wrong practices
• Eating Haraam
• Lack of understanding of the meaning of those
Azkar
• Lack of knowledge about the virtues of Azkar
www.understandquran.com
20
Azkar do not have required
effects because of:
• Lack of pondering / thinking over (Tafakkur +
Zikr should go together). This makes a huge
difference between an abid and an ‘alim.
• Lack of firm faith and trust that Allah will
respond (Allah is with the ‘thinking’ of the slave)

Azan and Azkar should:
• Remind the negligent
• Guide the lost one
• Stop a sinner
• Increase the pious in good deeds

Takbeer: ‫أكبر‬ ُ‫هللا‬
• The most often repeated phrase in our lives
(esp. in Azan, Iqamah, and Salah)
• Like the striking of clock every hour,
reminding him of the duties towards Allah.
• Repeated almost 200 times by every Muslim
• Repeated another 200 times if you recite it
33 times after every Salah and before sleep!

‫؟‬ ْ‫ن‬ِ‫م‬‫أكبر‬Greater than?
• Akbar (greater…)
• It should have been followed by “than
something / someone”.
Ex: Ahmad is greater than Umar ‫عمر‬ ‫ن‬ِ‫م‬ ُ‫أكبر‬ ‫أحمد‬
But it is dropped here. Why?
• To remind us that Allah can not be
compared with any of His creation. He is
the Greatest.

Do we really mean ‫أكبر‬ ُ‫هللا‬ ?
• After listening to Fajr Azan: If we still sleep,
then is sleep greater or Allah?
• During the day: Is our work, meeting,
chatting, eating, shopping, going or coming

worse, watching TV or just having fun with
Haraam greater than Allah?

• Another scenario: He asks me to come to job at
7.30 AM. I go there by 9 AM and say, “Boss! You
are great!”

• The biggest obstacle that a person has in
following the right path is his ego. He
always thinks he is right. He is reminded
again and again that he has to crush his ego
in front of Allah. He is nothing…Allah is
the Greatest. Therefore, just build up the
life around Allah’s commandments.

In Adhan & Salah
• We are asked to repeat the words of Mu’azzin.
This is to interact and respond to the call and act
accordingly.
• During Salah, we say it 6 times every Raka’h.
People get into worldly thoughts, programs,
worries and they are reminded again that Allah is
greater than everything else. So they don’t
deserve attention. Pay attention to Him alone and
come back to Salah.
