Remember Allah always (whether standing, sitting or lying)

Remember Allah always (whether standing, sitting or lying)

Allah says, "In the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the alternation of night and day, there are Signs for people of intelligence: those who remember Allah standing, sitting and lying on their sides." (Quran, 3:190-191)

"And when you have completed the prayer, remember Allah standing, sitting and [lying] on your sides." (Quran, 4:103)

A'isha رضي الله ﺗﻌﺎﻟﯽٰ عنه  said, "The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, used to remember Allah Almighty in all states." 
(Muslim)

The Prophet ﺻﻠﯽ الله ﺗﻌﺎﻟﯽٰ ﻋﻠﯿﮧ ﻭﺍٓﻟﮧ ﻭﺳﻠﻢ  said, "Whoever sits and does not mention the Name of Allah (before he rises) will find it a cause of sorrow from Allah. Whoever lies down to sleep and does not mention the name of Allah before rising, will find it a cause of sorrow from Allah." 
(Abu Dawud 4/264. See Al-Albani, Sahihul-Jami' As-Saghir 5/342)

The Prophet ﺻﻠﯽ الله ﺗﻌﺎﻟﯽٰ ﻋﻠﯿﮧ ﻭﺍٓﻟﮧ ﻭﺳﻠﻢ  said, "Let your tongue always be moist with the rememberance of Allah." (Tirmidhi 5/458, Ibn Majah 2/1246; Sahih)

The time spent without Dhikrullah will be the only Regret in JANNAH: 

Mu`adh ibn Jabal (RA) said that the Prophet ﺻﻠﯽ الله ﺗﻌﺎﻟﯽٰ ﻋﻠﯿﮧ ﻭﺍٓﻟﮧ ﻭﺳﻠﻢ  said: 

"The People of Paradise will not regret except one thing alone: the hour that passed them by in which they made no Dhikr (remembrance) of Allah." (Bayhaqi in Shu`ab al-iman (1:392 #512-513) and by Tabarani; graded as Hasan).

May Allah enable us to remember Him in all states and all moments of our lives. Ameen.
