Boost your Soul’s Metabolism: Have Dhikr for Breakfast!

‘All happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast.’

John Gunther

Ibn al-Qayyim (R) :

“And I was with Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah once when he prayed Fajr. He sat afterwards remembering Allah until midday, and turned to me, saying: ‘This is my nourishment. If I do not receive this nourishment, I will have no energy’, or something to this effect. And he said to me once: ‘I never leave off making dhikr except with the intention of saving up my energy to rest myself in order to prepare for more dhikr’, or something close to this in meaning.”
