My Heart is not there During Zikr

Mulla Ali Qari (RA) narrates that once a saint’s mureed complained that I don’t feel the presence of my heart whilst making zikr.  The saint replied, “Be thankful that at least one of your limbs (your tongue) is involved in zikr, and at the same time, constantly pray that your heart can be focused also.”

My Shaikh, Hazrat Maulana Shah Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Sahib (DB) says, “Allah has promised to give more or an increase for a person’s gratitude.  So by the barakah of a person makeing zikr with his tongue, and he is grateful for this, Allah will give him an increase, or extra, and more in the form of the person feeling the presence of his heart during zikr as well (insha Allah).”
