Zikhr of Almighty Allah (SWT) is the most excellent act of Allah's servants and is stressed over a hundred times in the Holy Qur'an. It is the most praiseworthy work to earn Allah (SWT) pleasure and the most deserving of deeds in reward.
The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) said that the People of Paradise will only regret one thing not having made enough zikhr in the world.
Hadith Qudsi, "Those that remember Me in their heart, I remember them in My heart; and those that remember Me in a gathering (i.e. that make mention of Me), I remember them (i.e. make mention of them) in a gathering better than theirs."
Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri and Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with Them) reported that The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) said, "When any group of men remember Allah, angels surround them and mercy covers them, tranquillity descends upon them, and Allah mentions them to those who are with Him." Narrated by Muslim, Tirmidhi, Ahmad, Ibn Majah, and Bayhaqi.
Abu Huraira reported that Allah’s Apostle (peace be upon him) had said: Allah has mobile (squads) of Angels, who have no other work (to attend to but) to follow the assemblies of Zikhr and when they find such assemblies in which there is the remembrance (of Allah) they sit in them and some surrounding the others with their wings till the space between them and the sky of the world is fully covered, and when they disperse (after the assembly) they go upward to the heaven and Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, asks them although He is best informed about them: Where have you come from? They say: We come from Thine servants on the earth who had been glorifying Thee, uttering Thine Greatness (saying Allah hu Akbar) and uttering Thine Oneness (La ilaha il Allah) and praising Thee (uttering Al-Hamdu Lillah) and begging of Thee. He would say: What do they beg of me? They would say: They beg of Thee the Paradise of Thine, He (Allah) would say: Have they seen My Paradise? They said: No our Lord. He would say: (What it would be then) if they were to see My Paradise? They (the Angels) said: They seel Thine protection. He (the Lord) would say: Against what do they seek My protection. He (the Lord) would say: against what do they seek My protection? They (the Angels) would say; Our Lord, from Hell Fire. He (the Lord) would say: Have they seen My Fire? They would say: No. He (the Lord) would say: What it would be if they were to see My Fire? They would say: They beg of Thee forgiveness. What if they were to see My Fire? They would say: They beg of Thee forgiveness. He would say: I grant them pardon, and confer upon them what they ask for and grant them protection against which they seek protection. They (the angels) would again say: Our Lord, there is one amongst them such and such simple servant who had happened to pass by (that assembly) and there along with them (who had been participating in that assembly). He (the Lord) would say: I also grant him pardon, for they are the people who ever sits with them would be in no way unfortunate.
