Reminder to returning Pilgrims!


In the state of ihram proceeding towards Masjid al-Haram, sayyidi wa sandi Shaykh Mawlana Mohammad Taqi Usmani sahib (Allah preserve him) repeatedly recited;

لبيك اللهم لبيك

لا شريك لك لبيك

ان الحمد و نعمة

 لك و الملك لا شريك لك

and told us:
“In the state of ihram the most superior form of dhikr is this talbiyah.

Reflecting on it, it is my opinion, and Allah knows best, this repeated recitation is an exercise and training for us. That is it so remind us repeatedly that we are here, present and at service of Allah.

The result of this exercise has to appear when we return back to our routine daily life.

There we have to say, ليبك : O Allah! I am here ready to obey each and every command of Yours.”
