Hadith of Dhikr: Best of you inspire the remembrance of Allah

Asma’ bint Yazid reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Shall I tell you about the best of you?” They said, “Of course, O Messenger of Allah.” The Prophet said, “The best of you are those who, when they are seen, inspire others to remember Allah Almighty.”

عَنْ أَسْمَاءَ بِنْتِ يَزِيدَ قَالَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ أَلَا أُنَبِّئُكُمْ بِخِيَارِكُمْ قَالُوا بَلَى يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ قَالَ خِيَارُكُمْ الَّذِينَ إِذَا رُءُوا ذُكِرَ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ
