In the light of Quranic verses, prophet traditions and sayings of saints.

1. Remember Allah, while standing, sitting and on your sides, (holy Quran)

2. You remember me, I shall remember you in return, (holy Quran)

3. There is a way of washing every thing, for cleanliness of hearts, remembrance of Allah is recommended. (Tradition of prophet)

4. Nothing satisfies the aspirant other than remembrance of Allah.

5. All that exists is cursed except remembrance of Allah, (Tradition of Prophet)

6. If my servant remember me in his heart I remember him in my heart, and if my servant remember me in an assembly I remember him in a better assembly of angels. (Tradition of prophet)

7. If a person spends whole his life in performing prayers, fasting, pilgrimage and paying aim, but neither he is aware of the personal name of Allah and Muhammad . the prophet, nor he has studied them, all his worship goes in vain.

8. The person, irritated by remembrance of Allah is either enemy of Allah, hypocrite, infidel or arrogant jealous (Sultan Sakhi Bahoo).

9. The recompense of Dhikr-e-Qulb is many times greater than that of the holy benediction. (Mujaddid Alf Sani)

10. Women can perform loud remembrance too. (Pir Mehar Ali Shah).

11. It should be noticed that heart is situated at the left side in the chest. There are two doors for the entrance into heart. The upper one is opened through loud remembrance, the lower is opened through hidden remembrance (Khafi) (within the heart). (Shah Wali Allah).

12. Why loud remembrance is forbidden, enquired a devotee from Mujaddid Sahib. "Mujaddid Sahib replied".

The custom of the Prophet is of two types. One relates to the method of worship, the other relates to habitual deeds. To do against the .first custom, I regard as (bid-dat-e-Munkira) and strangely disapprove. I consider it as a new invention in the religion and a rejected thing.

To do against the second custom, I do not regard as (Bidat-e-Munkira) neither I disapprove it nor it relates to the religion. As it relates to the habitual act and not the religion.

The habitual custom of the prophet should be observed as it is very holy and beneficent. (Maktobat Mujaddid Alf-e-Sani, Letter No. 231).
