Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) narrates from his predecessors that Amirul Momineen (a.s.) said, “Some people gathered around the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.s.) and asked, ‘O Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.s.)! Rich people have wealth through which they can free slaves but what about the poor ones like us? They have money to go for Hajj but we can’t go. They have enough money for giving Sadaqah but we do not have any. They have enough wealth to buy weapons and participate in Jihad but we do not have anything.’ the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said, ‘The reward of reciting takbeer (Allaahu Akbar) a hundred times is better than the reward of freeing a slave. The reward of reciting Tasbeeh (Sub-haanallaah) a hundred times is better than taking a hundred camels for Hajj. The reward of reciting Tahmeed (Al-h’amdulillaah) is better than taking more than a hundred horses with saddles and straps laden with weapons of war for Jihad. And the reward of a person who recites Laa ilaaha illallaah a hundred times is better than everyone except one who recites it more than a hundred times’.” Amirul Momineen (a.s.) says, “When rich people came to know about this tradition, they too started performing these deeds. The poor people again came to the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) and said that even rich people have come to know about this and they too are offering them. The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) replied, ‘That is Allah's grace; He grants it to whom He pleases, and Allah is the Lord of mighty grace’.”

Sawab al-A`amal, Page 36

“One who recites.. Raz”eetubillaahi rabbanw wa bil islaami deenanw wa bimuh’ammadir rasoolanw wa bi-ahli baytihi awliyaa – he has right that Allah becomes pleased with him on the Day of Judgment.”

Sawab al-A`amal, Page 54

Imam Husain (a.s.) narrates that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said, “One who remembers Allah sitting at the place he offered Morning Prayer till sunrise is given reward equal to the number of pilgrims of the house of Allah and he would get salvation. If he sits there till the time of next Salaat and offers at least four rakat prayer all his past sins would be forgiven and he would get reward equal to performing Hajj of the House of Allah.”
Imām Husayn ibn ‘Alī ibn Abī Ṭālib (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 76

Imam Muhammad Baqir (a.s.) narrates that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said That Allah, the Might and Sublime said, “O children of Adam! Remember Me after Morning Prayer for an hour and after Asr prayers for an hour so that I fulfill your important wishes.”

ثَلاثَةٌ لا يَرُدُّ اللَّهُ دُعَاءَهُم: الذَّاكِرُ اللَّهِ كَثِيْرًا؛ وَالمَظْلُومُ؛ والاِمامُ المُقْسِطُ

. من كتاب المحاسن: عن الحسن البزّاز عن أبي عبد الله في حديثٍ قال: ألا أحدثكم بأشدّ ما افترض الله على خلقه؟ فذكر له ثلاثةُ أشياء، الثالث منها: ذكرُ الله في كلّ موطنٍ إذا هجم على طاعةٍ أو معصيةٍ.

In Al-Mahasin it is narrated that Hassan al-Baz'zaz narrated that Imam Sadiq (a.s) said “Do you want me to inform you about the hardest duties Allah has made incumbent upon His servants?” He then discussed three duties, the third of which was to always remember Allah, whether we are rushing to obey Him, or we are committing sins.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Mishkat ul-Anwar, Section 1 on Faith, Islam & Related Issues, Chapter 15 On Remembrance, Hadees 257

عنه قال: مِن أشدّ ما فرض الله على خلقه ذكر الله كثيراً، ثمّ قال: أما لا أعني "سبحان الله والحمد لله ولا إلهَ إلاّ الله والله أكْبَرُ" وإن كان منه، ولكن ذكر الله عند ما أحلّ وحرّم، فإنْ كان طاعةً عمل بها وإنْ كان معصيةً تركها.

“Remembering Allah often is one of the most important acts that Allah has made incumbent upon His servants.” He then added: “Beware that by this I do not mean just reciting the praises of Allah the Almighty. Rather I mean remembering what Allah has allowed, what He has forbidden, obeying Allah and abandoning sins.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)

عن الباقر [ : المجالس] ثلاثةٌ: سالمٌ، وغانمٌ، وشاجبٌ، فالسالم الصامت، والغانم الذاكر لله، والشاجب الّذي يلفظ ويقع في الناس.

عن يونس بن عبد الرحمان رفعه قال لقمان لابنه: يا بُنيَّ اختم المجالس على عينيك، فإذا رأيتَ قوما يذكرون الله فاجلس معهم فإنّك إن تكن عالماً يزيدوك علماً، وإنْ كنتَ جاهلاً علّموك، ولعلّ الله أنْ يظلّهم برحمةٍ فيعمّك معهم، وإذا رأيتَ قوماً لا يذكرون الله فلا تجلس معهم، فإنّك إن تكن عالماً لا ينفعك علمك، وإن تكن جاهلاًً يزيدوك جهلاً ولعلّ الله أن يظلّهم بعقوبةٍ فيعمّك معهم.

Unus ibn Abdulrahman narrated that Luqman said to his son “O' my dear son! Be careful when you enter a gathering to sit with those who are remembering Allah. This way your knowledge will increase if you are knowledgeable, and you will become knowledgeable if you are ignorant. There is hope that Allah will spread the shade of His Mercy upon them, and you may benefit from His Mercy, too. But if you see some people who do not remember Allah, do not sit with them since you will not gain any knowledge if you are knowledgeable, and you will be more misguided if you are ignorant, and Allah may encompass them with the shadow of His Chastisement in which case you will be chastised too.”
Luqman Al Hakeem (a.s.)

“There are two types of remembrance: remembering Allah during times of calamities, and even better is remembering Allah when you are about to do what Allah has forbidden. This form of remembrance will cause you to abandon forbidden acts.”
Amir al-Mu'minin Imām ‘Alī ibn Abī Tālib (a.s.)
Mishkat ul-Anwar, Section 1 on Faith, Islam & Related Issues, Chapter 15 On Remembrance, Hadees 262

ومن كتاب روضة الواعظين: قال الله فَاذْكُروني أذْكُرْكُمْ وَاشْكُرْوا لي وَلا تَكْفُرُونَ[ وقال تعالى: ]يا أيُّهاَ الَّذينَ آمَنُوا اذْكُرُوا الله ذِكراً كَثيراً[ وقال تعالى: ]وَ الذَّاكِرينَ الله كَثِيراً وَالَّذاكِراتِ[ وقال تعالى: ]فَذَكِّرْ إِنَّما أَنْتَ مُذَكِّرْ * لَسْتَ عَلَيْهِمْ بِمُصَيْطِرْ[.

In Rauzat al-Vaezeen it is narrated that Allah the Almighty said “Then do ye remember Me; I will remember you. Be grateful to Me and reject not Faith.” [The Holy Quran: Baqara 2:152]. And He also said: “O' ye who believe! Celebrate the praises of Allah, and do this often.” [The Holy Quran: Ahzab 33:41]. He also said: “For men and women who engage much in Allah's praise, for them has Allah prepared forgiveness and great reward.” [The Holy Quran: Ahzab 33:35]. He also said: “Therefore do thou give admonition, for thou art one to admonish. Thou art not one to manage (men's) affairs.” [The Holy Quran: Ghashia 88:21-22]

وقال النبيّ : يا عليّ، سيّد الأعمال ثلاث خصالٍ: إنصافك من نفسك، ومواساة الأخ في الله، وذكر الله تبارك وتعالى على كلّ حالٍ.

“O' Ali! The following three are one's noblest characteristics: being fair, treating others as equals, and remembering Allah the Blessed, the High in all situations.”
Holy Prophet Muhammad al Mustafā (s.a.w.w.)
Mishkat ul-Anwar, Section 1 on Faith, Islam & Related Issues, Chapter 15 On Remembrance, Hadees 264

رُوي عن بعض الصادقين أنّه قال: الذكر مقسومٌ على سبعة أعضاء: اللسان، والروح، والنفس، والعقل، والمعرفة، والسرّ، والقلب. وكلّ واحدٍ يحتاج إلى استقامةٍ، فاستقامةُ اللسان صدقُ الإقرار، واستقامةُ الروح صدق الاحتضار، واستقامةُ النفس صدق الاستغفار، واستقامة القلب صدقُ الاعتذار، واستقامة العقل صدق الاعتبار، واستقامة المعرفة صدق الافتخار، واستقامة السرّ السرور بعالم الأسرار. وذكر اللسان الحمد والثناء، وذكر النفس الجهد والعناء، وذكر الروح الخوف والرجاء، وذكر القلب الصدق والصفاء، وذكر العقل التعظيم والحياء، وذكر المعرفة التسليم والرضا، وذكر السرّ الرؤية واللقاء.

“There are seven things in the body in charge of remembrance of Allah: the tongue, the soul, the spirit, the intellect, the wisdom, the head, and the heart- either of which needs to persevere. The tongue's perseverance is attained through honesty in uttering words. The soul's perseverance is attained through presence of one's mind. The spirit's perseverance is attained through sincerity in repentance. The heart's perseverance is attained through properly begging for pardon. The intellect's perseverance is attained through properly learning from one's mistakes. The wisdom's perseverance is attained through proper pride, and the head's perseverance is attained through awareness of the secrets of the world. Thus the remembrance of Allah is equal to uttering praises of Allah for the tongue; struggling and hard work for the spirit; fear and hope for the soul; honesty and sincerity for the heart; exaltation and shyness for the intellect; submission and contentment for the wisdom; and witnessing to and approaching Allah for the head.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Mishkat ul-Anwar, Section 1 on Faith, Islam & Related Issues, Chapter 15 On Remembrance, Hadees 265

قال أمير المؤمنين : جُمع الخير في ثلاث خصالٍ: في النظر، والسكوت، والكلام، فكلّ نظرٍ ليس فيه اعتبارٌ فهو سهوٌ، وكلّ سكوتٍ ليس فيه فكرة فهو غفلة، وكلّ كلامٍ ليس فيه ذكر فهو لغو، فطوبى لمن كان نظره عبراً، وسكوته فكراً، وكلامه ذكراً، وبكى على خطيئته، وأمن الناس شرّه.

“All good characteristics are summarized in three acts: looking, silence and talking. Any looking that is without learning is a waste of time. Any silence that is without pondering is due to ignorance. And any talking that is not accompanied by remembrance of Allah is vain talk. Then blessed be those who learn when they look; think when they are silent; remember Allah when they talk; are sorry for their wrong-doings; and the people are safe from their mischief.”
Amir al-Mu'minin Imām ‘Alī ibn Abī Tālib (a.s.)

قال النبيّ : أيّما امرئ مسلمٍ جلس في مصلّاه الّذي يصلّي فيه الفجر يذكر الله حتّى تطلع الشمس، كان له من الأجر كحاجّ بيت الله، وغُفر له.

“The reward of any Muslim who sits in his prayer chamber at dawn and remembers Allah untill the night is equal to the reward of one who goes on the holy pilgrimage (to Allah's House in Ka'ba). He shall be forgiven all his sins.”
Holy Prophet Muhammad al Mustafā (s.a.w.w.)
Mishkat ul-Anwar, Section 1 on Faith, Islam & Related Issues, Chapter 15 On Remembrance, Hadees 267

Holy Prophet Muhammad al Mustafā (s.a.w.w.)
Mishkat ul-Anwar, Section 1 on Faith, Islam & Related Issues, Chapter 15 On Remembrance, Hadees 268

وقال : ما جلس قومٌ يذكرون الله إلا نادى بهم منادٍ من السماء: قوموا فقد بدّلت سيّئاتكم حسناتٍ، وغُفِرَ لكم جميعاً، وما قعد عدّةٌ من أهل الأرض يذكرون الله إلا قعد معهم عدّةٌ من الملائكة.

“There are no groups of people who start remembering Allah to whom a divine announcement as to their being forgiven is not issued. There are also no groups of people who start remembering Allah and some of the angels do not accompany them.”
Holy Prophet Muhammad al Mustafā (s.a.w.w.)
Mishkat ul-Anwar, Section 1 on Faith, Islam & Related Issues, Chapter 15 On Remembrance, Hadees 269

قال جابر: قلتُ لأبي جعفر : إنّ قوما إذا ذكروا بشيءٍ من القرآن أو حدّثوا به صعق أحدهم حتّى ترى أنّه لو قطعت يداه ورجلاه لم يشعر بذلك، فقال: سبحان الله ذاك مِن الشيطان ما أمروا بهذا إنّما هو اللين والرقّة والدمعة والوجل.

Jabir said that he once told Imam Baqir (a.s): “There are some people who are such that whenever a part of the Quran is read for them or they are reminded of it, one of them becomes unconscious. He gets so unconscious that he will not even realize it if you cut off both his hands or legs.” The Imam (a.s) said Praise be to Allah. This is a Satanic act. They have not been instructed to do so. The Quran is only meant to cause fear of Allah, softening of the heart and weeping.”
Imām Muhammad ibn ‘Alī al-Baqir (a.s.)
Mishkat ul-Anwar, Section 1 on Faith, Islam & Related Issues, Chapter 15 On Remembrance, Hadees 273

ومن كتاب مجمع البيان: في قوله : ]ثُمَّ قَسَتْ قُلُوبُكُمْ مِنْ بَعْدِ ذلِكَ فَهِيَ كَالْحِجارَةِ أَوْ أَشَدُّ قَسْوَةً...[ الآية وقد ورد الخبر عن النبيّ أنّه قال: لا تكثروا الكلام بغير ذكر الله، فإنّ كثرة الكلام بغير ذكر الله تُقسي القلب، وإنَّ أبعد الناس مِن الله القاسي القلب.

In Majma ul-Bayan it is narrated that the Prophet (a.s) was quoted as saying the following regarding the verse “Henceforth were your hearts hardened: they become like a rock and even worse in hardness.” [The Holy Quran: Baqara 2:74] “Do not keep on talking without remembering Allah. This will harden your hearts. And those whose hearts are hardened are the ones most distant from Allah.”

من كتاب الزهد: عن عثمان بن عبد الله رفعه قال: إذا كان الشتاء نادى منادٍ: يا أهل القرآن، قد طال الليل لصلاتكم، وقصر النهار لصيامكم، فإن كنتم لا تقدرون على الليل أنْ تكابدوه، ولا على العدوّ أن تجاهدوه، وبخلتم بالمال أن تنفقوه فأكثروا ذكر الله.

In Al-Zuhd it is narrated that Uthman ibn Abdullah has quoted the following on the authority of the Immaculate Imams (a.s) “When the winter comes you are told that the nights have become longer so that you may pray, and the days have been shortened so that you may fast, and if you cannot stay awake at night and cannot fight with your enemies and do not feel good about giving charity, remember Allah more often.”

ومن كتابٍ: قال أبو عبد الله : ما ابتليَ المؤمن بشيءٍ أشدّ مِن المواساة في ذات الله والإنصاف من نفسه، وذكر الله كثيراً، ثمّ قال: أما إنّي لا أقول "سُبْحانَ الله وَالْحَمْدُ لله" ولكن ذكره عند [ما أحلّو ذكره عند] ما حرّم.

“Nothing is a harder (divine) test for a believer than giving charity from what he has earned from Allah the Almighty, being just and frequently remembering Allah.” He then said: “I do not mean that you should often say praises of Allah, but remember Allah in what you do regarding what is allowed and what is forbidden.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Mishkat ul-Anwar, Section 1 on Faith, Islam & Related Issues, Chapter 15 On Remembrance, Hadees 276

ومن كتاب عيون الأخبار: عن رجاء بن أبي الضحّاك قال: بعثني المأمون في إشخاص عليّ بن موسى الرضا من المدينة، وأمرني أن آخذ به على طريق البصرة والأهواز وفارس ولا آخذ به على طريق قم، وأمرني أن أحفظه بنفسي بالليل والنهار حتّى أقدم عليه، فكنتُ معه من المدينة إلى مرو، فوالله ما رأيت رجلاً كان أتقى لله عز وجل منه، ولا أكثر ذِكراً لله تعالى في جميع أوقاته منه، ولا أشدّ خوفاً لله تعالى.

In Uyun Akhbar al-Reza it is narrated that Raja ibn Abil-Zah'hak said that Ma'mun sent him to bring Imam Reza (a.s) from Madina by way of Basra, Ahvaz and Fars, but not by way of Qum. He said he was ordered to personally accompany and guard the Imam (a.s) the whole way until they reached their destination. Therefore he was with the Imam (a.s) all the way from Medina to Marv. He said that he swears by Allah that he has never seen anyone more pious than the Imam (a.s)- always remembering and fearing Allah.
Imām Alī ibn Mūsā al-Rezā (a.s.)

“All that man says is not to his benefit, except for enjoining the right, forbidding the wrong and remembering Allah.” He also said: “Allah Has ordered me that all my talking should be in remembrance of Allah, my silence should be accompanied by thinking and my looking should be accompanied by learning.”
