- Just like your body needs food to sustain yourself, your soul needs Dhikurullah to sustain itself
- Limit your contact with those who will drag you headlong along the path of sin and vice and seek the company of Scholars, obedient and pious servants of Allah
- Obligatory matters obviously take priority and there is no point in concentrating of optional maters (i.e. making Dhik'r, reading the Qur'aan etc) if the obligatory matters (Salah, fasting, Hijab etc) are being neglected.
- All pathways towards Allah (SWT) and closeness to Him (SWT) are blocked and will end up in a dead-end except through the beloved Sunnah of Sayyidina Rasul-ullah (Sallaho Alaihe Wassallam).
- The priority before making any gains is to stop the loss and adopting Taqwa & avoiding sins is just the tonic and the solution to all problems
- You may get tired of your sins or asking for repentance over and over again but Allah (SWT) will never get tired of forgiving those who seek forgiveness sincerely.
- It may sound obvious but the most important component of a successful recovery program is "establishing" Salah, notice that the words praying is not used rather the emphasis is on "establishing" prayer.
- There is nothing better in getting a person closer to Allah (SWT) or building a relationship with Allah (SWT) then the speech of Allah (SWT) i.e. the Qur’aan
- A daily recitation of Astaghfaar (seeking sincere repentence) should be part of any Dhik’r as our noble and beloved Sayyidina Rasul-ullah (Sallaho Alaihe Wassallam) himself used to recite Astghafaar 70 or 100 times daily
- The two magnificent Adhkaar given should be combined to recite (daily):
سُبْحَان اللهِ وَ الْحَمْدُ لِلّهِ وَ لآ اِلهَ اِلّا اللّهُ وَ اللّهُ اَكْبَرُ وَلا حَوْلَ وَلاَ قُوَّة ِ الَّا بِاللّهِ الْعَلِىّ الْعَظِيْم
11 The superiority of sending Salutations upon Sayyidina Rasul-ullah (Sallaho Alaihe Wassallam) is evident from the Qur'aan itself where Allah (SWT) declares that Allah (SWT) and the angels send Salutations upon Sayyidina Rasul-ullah (Sallaho Alaihe Wassallam)
