Quran Quote  : 

يٰۤاَيُّهَا الۡمُزَّمِّلُۙ‏ ﴿۱﴾

0 you enwrapped ¹ one.

1. O the one enwrapped in a sheet. Once the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم was resting was enwrapped in a sheet. He was addressed in this condition and in this manner.

From this emerge two issues:

While the Holy Qur'an has addressed other Prophets by their names, our Beloved Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم has been addressed by his attributes.

2. The manner of the beloved too is beloved. The Sufi sages describe its meaning as: Oh the Beloved one going to the human being wearing the sheet of human nature. Or O the one who is covered in the dress of worship and austerity! (Tafseer Azizi)

9. Before commencing the recitation of the Holy Qur'aan always read BISMILLAH. Or, besides Salaah recite the names of Allah Almighty at different times by reading glorification and declaration of the Unity of Allah Almighty (TASBEEH and TAHLEEL).

10. This means that besides the Salaah, your blessed life should be such that even if you are physically involved in any activity, your heart should reflect nothing besides Allah Almighty. However, this verse does serve as proof to cut oneself from the world, which Islam forbids.
