From the benefits of Zhikr

الذكر قوت القلب والروح

The Remembrance (of Allāh) is Food for The Heart and Soul

Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah (رحمه الله) said:

“Once, I observed Shaykh al-Islām ibn Taymiyyah pray the Fajr (prayer). He then sat and remembered Allāh (The Most High) up until the nearing of midday. Thereafter, he turned towards me and said: “This (Zhikr) is my meal, and if I did not have this meal, my strength would deteriorate.” Or words similar to this.”
