PREVIOUS: How to Make Dhikr and Dua a Daily Habit


Compiled by Homaira Hafsa

In most cases, we remember Allah when disaster comes. But the remembrance of Allah in joy and grief (both) is the foundation of Imaan. Allah says in the Quran:

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اذْكُرُوا اللَّهَ ذِكْرًا كَثِيرًا

O you who have believed, remember Allah with much remembrance. [33:41]

فَاذْكُرُونِي أَذْكُرْكُمْ وَاشْكُرُو ا لِي وَلَا تَكْفُرُون

So, remember Me; I will remember you. And be grateful to Me and do not deny Me. [2:152]       

                                                  
أُجِيبُ دَعْوَةَ ٱلدَّاعِ إِذَا دَعَانِ ۖ فَلْيَسْتَجِيبُوا۟ لِى وَلْيُؤْمِنُوا۟ بِى لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْشُدُونَ

I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon Me. So let them respond to Me and believe in Me that they may be guided. [2:186]     


So, our Rabb commands us to remember Him by Praising, by thanking, by seeking forgiveness, by seeking help, by seeking His nearness, by following His rules. And every day almost every time. Our Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) has taught us the appropriate supplications for every occasion. We got the prescribed Dhikr-Adhkaar for the morning and evening, at any time of the day, at specific times of the day.

Adhkaar for specific times of the day


أَمَّن يُجِيبُ الْمُضْطَرَّ إِذَا دَعَاهُ وَيَكْشِفُ السُّوءَ

Is He who responds to the desperate one when he calls upon Him and removes evil? [27:62]   


وَسَبِّحْ بِحَمْدِ رَبِّكَ قَبْلَ طُلُوعِ ٱلشَّمْسِ وَقَبْلَ غُرُوبِهَا ۖ وَمِنْ ءَانَآئِ ٱلَّيْلِ فَسَبِّحْ وَأَطْرَافَ ٱلنَّهَارِ لَعَلَّكَ تَرْضَىٰ….

and exalt with praise of your Lord before the rising of the sun and before its setting; and during periods of the night and at the ends of the day, that you may be satisfied. [20:130]

وَسَبِّحْ بِحَمْدِ رَبِّكَ قَبْلَ طُلُوعِ ٱلشَّمْسِ وَقَبْلَ ٱلْغُرُوبِ…

and exalt with praise of your Lord before the rising of the sun and before its setting, [50:39]


A. Dhikr After Prayer


فَإِذَا قَضَيْتُمُ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ فَٱذْكُرُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ قِيَـٰمًۭا وَقُعُودًۭا وَعَلَىٰ جُنُوبِكُمْ
