  1. Excellent article!! Also those of you who need more money, provisions, etc read Surah Waqiah.(56th chapter) daily and Surah Al Imran (3rd chapter) ayats 26-27 daily and it is said that Allah will send you the money to pay off debt, will provide for you and you will never be broke. It’s true!! I use them all time!

    • Assalamualikum sis…i saw your comment….if you don’t mind sis I’ve a question sister…Is there any hadith regarding what you said about Surah waqiah,about increase in provision and all…..i mean v just have 2 hold on Qur’an and Sunnah,dat z why em asking you this?i hope you don’t mind and will reply me back soon,em waiting….wassalamualikumwRwB

      • Assalamu alaikum to all. Some aleem told me also about same merit of reading surah waqiah but still looking for refetence aithentic hadeeth.

          • Assalamualaikum. ..hope not too late for this reply

            The Prophet(SAW) said, ‘Whoever recites surah al Waqiah at night would never encounter poverty’ [Ibn Sunni 620]

  2. Useful article, Masha Allah. Following is another Dhikr:
    Juwayriyya bint al-Harith, one of the wives of the Prophet, reported that one day the Prophet left her apartment in the morning as she was busy observing her dawn prayer in her place of worship. He came back in the forenoon and she was still sitting there. The Prophet said to her: “You have been in the same place since I left you?” She said: “Yes.” Thereupon the Prophet said: “I recited four words three times after I left you and if these are to be weighed against what you have recited since morning these would outweigh them, and these words are:

    سبحان الله وبحمده عدد خلقه ورضى نفسه وزنه عرشه ومداد كلماته

    subhan Allahi wa bi hamdihi `adada khalqihi wa rida nafsihi wa zinata `arshihi wa midada kalimatihi

    “Glory to Allah and praise to Him to number of His creation and to the extent of His pleasure and to the extent of the weight of His Throne and to the extent of ink used in recording words for His Praise.” (Muslim and Abu Dawud)

    This dhikr is for (at least) three times in the morning and three times in the evening (after fajr and asr prayers). The reward is very great as is mentioned in this hadeeth. Insha Allah.

  3. Very refreshing,indeed. Our faith in Him is further strengthened by such valuable input. My the Almighty reward her, Amen

      • Assalamualaikom sister
        Good job mashaaAllah… However, there are a couple of mistakes in the slide you put (the table) (mostly copy paste mistakes).. below are the mistakes and their corrections :
        1. Second Duaa … mistake “All praise if to Allah” … correction … “All praise is to Allah”
        2. Third Duaa first part… mistake “All praise if to Allah” … correction … “All praise is to Allah”
        3, Fifth Duaa … .. mistake “All praise if to Allah” … correction … “All praise is to Allah”
        4. Fifth Duaa …. mistake ” 10x after Salah” …. correction … ” Say it 33x after Salah” … 3 mistakes same correction

        Jazakumullahu Khairan

  4. SubhanAllah walhamdulillah walaa ilaaha illallaahu wallahu akbar wa laa hawla wala quwwata illa billa

  5. Assalamu alaykum Sister,this will help the new muslims memorize easily the dhikir. Cuold you please include the arabic for those trying their best to read the arabic .jazakallahu khairan!

    fatimah adeel

  6. JazakAllah khayran ukhti for such a wonderful article. SubhanAllah I have saved this link and come back to it everyday and although most of the dhikr here I already knew I wasn’t really using as daily dhikr but reading this article and the translation and comments of the worth of each remembrance really helped put things into perspective for me. May Allah increase you sister in this dunya and in the akhirah and protect you from the punishment of the Grave and the punishment of the Fire ameen. Thank you so much again

  7. Assalamualaikum, may I just ask where the translation is from because you have said that you receive ‘sons’ in paradise and there is no mention of daughters. I was just thinking of it as a bit sexist. So I looked at a couple of other translations and they have translated it as ‘children’. Could you please tell me the translation you are using. I want to check it out. Apologies for the long post.

    • Assaalmualaikom brother Adil

      in the Ayah it was mentioned “Baneen” .. and it literally means sons if the context was speaking about a specific sons… and it also has other meanings like children or offspring in a more general context as you said,.. so you are right, your translation is more accurate

  8. The links you have used for other quranic ayats lead me to That website has the translation. I am even more confused, enlighten me.

    Allah knows best.

  9. I have just realised that there are other translations within and some have translated it as ‘sons’. I am wondering if the other translators have put ‘children’ so the Quran doesn’t appear sexist because I have read on anti-Islam websites that some translation ‘clean up’ the Quran. Please prove me wrong.

    Allah knows best.

    • Assalaamu alaikum Aadil,

      Thank you for reaching out to ask for an explanation about this. Please accept our sincere apologies for the delay in responding to you.

      There are several points I’d like to share with you:

      1. The verse is referring to children, not sons alone. I’ve corrected that in the article above.

      2. In the Arabic language, when the plural is used, it is in the masculine. In this case, when saying children, the word baneen is used. Baneen is also the plural for sons as well as used to collectively refer to boys and girls together.

      3. As Sh. Ahmed Deedat (may Allah have mercy on him) once mentioned in one of his talks, what we know as ‘translations’ of the Qur’an, it is more accurate to refer to them as interpretations because they can only attempt to interpret what the intended meaning is and state that in a language other than Arabic. As you may know, translations between any two languages – as precise and objective as one tries to be – still distort the original message — whether by detracting from it or adding to it. There are quite a lot of nuances involved.

      4. It is best to refer to classical Islamic scholars of the Qur’an and mufassireen (experts in writing the exegesis of the Qur’an) to understand the meanings of these verses as they not only explain them within the cultural, political, social, and economic contexts of that time, but they also have a deep understanding of the Arabic language in its purest form.

      5. Lastly, my personal advice would be to keep away from anti-Islamic websites, not because I discourage understanding Islam and what it truly is, but because that isn’t the correct way to go about it. In fact, it’s one of the most dangerous ways. (I say this from personal experience.)

      That said, I understand you may be trying to understand this so you can respond/explain to them. Again, as I was once advised, I share the advice with you – and that one needs to first be learned in Islam – have full faith and understanding of it – before getting involved in the anti-Islamic sources. To acquire knowledge on any subject, learn from the learned, from the origins of that knowledge.

      I hope this helps. :)

      JazakAllah khair.

      • Assalamualikum.

        Jazakallah khair for your, (in my opinion) quick, reply. You have definitely strengthened my imaan and I hope you will be rewarded. As I am currently studying a few languages I completely understand these grammar issues and I hope Allah will forgive me for being so quick to assume. Thank you again for the reply and I will take your advice as you are very much correct in saying I should stay away from such websites as they unnecessarily weaken my faith when they are completely incorrect.


        • As Salaamu Alaykum also, sometimes it’s not worth it to spend your time correcting those who clearly have a seal on their heart as it regards Islam. All you can do is make duaa and leave people to their ignorance. Allah changes the hearts or allows them to choose to remain the same, not us. Islam needs no defense as we know it to be 100% true. JazaakumAlkahu Khayran for all you efforts, May Allah protect you Ameen.

  10. JazakAllah khair. I would like to ask if one is saying these dhikr must one perform ablution. please give me an answer.


    • Rathia, thank you for your question. While it is good to be in the state of ablution, it is not necessary for you to be so in order to recite these adhkar.

  11. Humana People to People and their Developments In China

    Humana People to People creates their purpose to enhance under-developed nations around the world via offering instruction to primary school lecturers and tradesmen, helping to recommend
    good health and deliver understanding of Aids and to help out with more developing the places agriculture.

    through the province within poor places. A number of tasks which Humana People to People works to bring to this area
    of China consist of trade coaching centers in which there’re able to further their education, arranging them for jobs, providing details on transmittable illnesses and more.

  12. jazakallahu khair… but I’ve a little correction, Although reciting the Qur’an is one of the best ways of remembering Allah. prophet Muhammad peace be upon him said in a HADITH in sahih bukhari, “Afdalu ma qultuhu ana wal nabiyeena min qabli ” LA’ILAHA ILLALLAH ” TRANSLATION: THE BEST OF THE SAYINGS I AND THE PROPHETS BEFORE ME IS LA’ILAHA ILLALLAH. THE BEST SAYING.

  13. Alhamdulillah! This website has been very beneficial to myself.

    It has explained a lot of things clearly and it has helped me in my life.

    May Allah bless you and give you many rewards.

    Jazakh’Allah Khair

  14. Assalsm Alaikum, just now I was thinking of creating a Dhikr Tree to help myself and my family to remember to recite dhikr at a glance throughput the day.
    I plan to write each dhikr and the number of times to recite on a small card then on the other side it’s benefit.
    Just then I saw this Alhumdulillah. All the information i meed at my finger tips. Jzk. May Allah reward you.

  15. Alhamdulillah may Almighty Allah bless and increase your knowledge as you have impact in all Muslims. Ma Salam
