Ascension

As'Salaamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatahu Brothers & Sisters

The Prophet of Islam, my the peace and blessings of All Mighty God be upon him, 
explained that "Salah (Prayer) is the Mir'aj of the believers."

In the same way Al'Mighty God longed to meet Muhammad, my the peace and blessings of All Mighty God be upon him, on the night of Mir'aj, He longs to meet his believer during salah. All veils between Him and the Believer are lifted. A believer too longs to meet his Creator through Prayer. 


Mir'aj itself is a process of getting close to the Creator. If spirituality itself by definition is attaining closeness to Al'Mighty God, then what better act than Salah (Prayer) for a Believer?

Dhikr

Jabir reported that the Prophet, May the peace & blessings of Al Mighty God be upon him, said, "The best dhikr is 'La ilaha illa'llah,' and the best supplication is 'Al-hamdu lillah'."

Don't think......Feeel

Abu Huryara reported that the Messenger of Allah, May the peace & blessings of Al Mighty God be upon him, said, "Allah Almighty says, 'I am according to My slave's opinion of Me and I am with Him when He remembers Me. When he remembers Me in himself, I mention him in Myself. If he mentions Me in an assembly, I mention him in a better assembly than them.' If he comes near Me by a handspan, I come near him a cubit. If he comes near Me by a cubit, I come near a fathom. When he comes to walking, I come to him running."
