Remembrance of Allah is what Allah wants from us:
Allah is the creator of this universe. He has given us so many precious blessings, and even we cannot thank Allah. In return, Allah just wants remembrance of His Almighty. The best way to the remembrance of Allah is to pray five times a day. Allah knows everything that is inside. He has given us a sense of hearing, a sense of listening to see and talk. These all and so many other blessings of the Almighty surrounded us. We humans are so busy in our lives that we find it hard to take time to remembrance of Allah. In today’s race for money, we leave everything behind us, but when someone finds any difficulty in his life, he bows down in front of Allah Almighty. The restlessness of the heart only comes in peace when we remember Allah.
Allah has blessed us with the last revelation Al-Quran. Allah’s last book is a sea of knowledge, and this book has a key to the peace of humanity. Allah has mentioned many times in His book about akhirah. If we do a good deed and remember Him in every good and bad time, he forgives us and allows us to move the way of Jannat on the Day of Judgment. Remembrance of Allah is the key to success in this world and hereafter. Success in akhirah is the only thing a Muslim demands; remembrance would lead him that way.
وَقُل رَّبِّ ٱغْفِرْ وَٱرْحَمْ وَأَنتَ خَيْرُ ٱلرَّٰحِمِينَ
And, [O Muhammad], say, “My Lord, forgive and have mercy, and You are the best of the merciful.
Ask from Allah:
Allah Almighty hears all our needs and blesses us with acceptance of our dua. When someone calls Him, he hears, and when He is invoked, He answers. Allah is alone and worthy of worship. There is no God but Allah. So supplicate to Allah, give your will to almighty, and bow down in front of Him. Ask forgiveness from the Almighty and remember in happiness and sorrow. He will then bless His slave with peace of mind and happiness. He almighty loves His slaves more than 70 mothers. When we call Him in sorrow, He removes that sorrow from us. In AlQuran, Allah says:
رَّبُّ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضِ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَا فَٱعْبُدْهُ وَٱصْطَبِرْ لِعِبَٰدَتِهِۦ ۚ هَلْ تَعْلَمُ لَهُۥ سَمِيًّا
Lord of the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them – so worship Him and have patience for His worship. Do you know of any similarity to Him?
(AlQuran 19: 65)
The degree someone remembers Allah, their heart will be calmed, and they will be cheerful. Remembrance of Allah means depending upon Allah and making a whole will to the Almighty Allah. It demands turning towards Him, praising Him for His blessings. Remembrance of ALLAH demands keeping great feelings about the Almighty, considering Him the whole power of the universe, demanding all your needs from Him, and waiting for the reply of prayers from Him. Allah has many names, and every name of Allah is upon His attributes. If someone remembers ALLAH with His beautiful name, He blesses him with a shower of His blessings.
فَـَٔاتَىٰهُمُ ٱللَّهُ ثَوَابَ ٱلدُّنْيَا وَحُسْنَ ثَوَابِ ٱلْءَاخِرَةِ ۗ وَٱللَّهُ يُحِبُّ ٱلْمُحْسِنِينَ
So Allāh gave them the reward of this world and the excellent reward of the Hereafter. And Allāh loves those who strive for excellence.
(AlQuran 3: 148)
