Meditation of the Breath

Bismillahi 'r-rahmani 'r-raheem

Saints say that a human being has in each day 24,000 breaths- in and out. In evey in-and-out breath, there is an action, whether good or bad.

That is why when you.... breathe in and breathe out.... breathe in with "Allah," breathe out with "Hu." Take in good action and cleanse yourself with that breath. Breathe in God's Attributes and Names meditating on the name of "Allah" Ta'ala. If that Name goes through your whole system, He is taking you into an unknown area, an area full of treasures that you do not know about. That is why you breathe out with "Hu."

Therefore meditate on the name "Allah" because God introduces His complete unknown Self through His Beautiful Name "Allah." When you do good actions, you do not know how much God is going to raise you. That is why it goes with "Hu," also.
Every breath in is an act, and every breath out is an act. Whether you breathe in or breathe out you expend effort, energy. So you are doing at least 24,000 acts every day. Think, then, whether these acts are like dead trees that have to be cut and thrown into fire or like living things that must be put into eternal area of heaven.

Taken from "Keys to the Divine Kingdom" by Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani.

Mash`allah that was very inspiring..

It takes a lot of practice to be able to do this unconsciously.

May Allah swt help us reach this state.
