1434. Abu Musa Al-Ash`ari (ra) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said, “The similitude of one who remembers his Lord 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 similar 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.
