Abu Musa Al-Ash`ari (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
The Prophet (PBUH) said,
“The similitude of one who remembers his Rubb and one who
does not remember Him, is like that of the living and the dead.”
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
Commentary: Lack of remembrance of Allah is akin to death.
When a person dies, he is unable to do anything.
Similarly, a person who does not remember Allah goes so far
from Him that he cannot do anything which can benefit him.
