WHAT DOES DHIKR MEAN?

Hadrat Imam-i Rabbani says in the 25th letter of the second volume of his Maktubat:

O My Son! This time of yours is a great opportunity. And opportunity is a great blessing. Times passed in good health and without anxiety are rare windfalls. You must spend each hour with the dhikr [1] of Allahu ta’ala. Every deed, even if it is shopping, which is agreeable with Rasulullah (alaihissalam), is dhikr. Then, every action, every attitude must be agreeable with Rasulullah (alaihissalam). In this case all will be dhikr. Dhikr means to dispel unawareness. In other words, it is to remember Allahu ta’ala. When a person observes the commandments and prohibitions of Allahu ta’ala in everything he does, in his every action, he will have escaped from forgetting the Owner of commands and prohibitions and performed dhikr all the time.
