  1. Assalamu’alaikum! What a great Baraka! Allah we benefit a lot from these powerful teachings. Sometimes we do have these materials with us, but such beautiful ways of presentations move us so much as to adhere to it at once and always.
    Once again,
    jazakumu’llahu khairan!
    May we achieve honour in Dunia and nearness to Allah in A’akhira!

    131, ‘O Allah, there is no ease except in that which You have made easy, and You make the difficulty, if You wish, easy.’

  4. Mashallah! One of the things I really enjoy as a new Muslim is dhikr. I live with my Christian family who do not yet know that I am a Muslim (alhamdulillahi). I am limited in terms of salah for now, and other visible acts of worship that they can see, so dhikr is my go to every time. I love the beloved words of Allah & sending peace to our Prophet (pbuh). I have learnt a new favourite today. I am pleased with Allah as my God, Islam as my religion & Muhammad as my Prophet. I am also very happy to know about the palm tree! I love palm trees! They make me feel so relaxed & remind me to enjoy life, so to know that one will be planted for me just for remembering my God? Wow!!!! I love Allah so much, only He deserves my worship & my praise. Thank you Productive Muslim for always kickstarting my morning. May Allah give you His bounties without measure. Ameen.

    • Dear Samantha thank YOU for your extremely inspiring, positive comment! May Allah bless you for seeking His pleasure and help you on your journey!

      • :-)
        Ameen. This is what faith in Allah does to someone. In situations where I would be sad or worried, I feel so much joy & life is working for me because of God’s faithfulness. Very proud to be a Muslim….a productive one. Hehe

    • BmashaAllah, baarakAllah dear, welcome to peace. May Allah swt keep you guided and guide all your loved ones too to the trith, ameen. Love your live for Allah swt mashaAllah.

  5. jazakallah kher sister for this article.

      • السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ

        How are you doing ?

        How is your health?

        BarakAllah for your efforts
        May Allah bless you here and hereafter

        May Allah bless you with great rewards :) . .. can i connect with you on FB please…

        • Walaikum as Salam Br Mohammed. Thanks for your positive comment and may Allah bless you too. My book has a Facebook page. It is titled How to be a Happy Muslim insha’Allah.

  7. MashaAllah it was really good to see so many beautiful doas at a glance which all are beneficial for us. Jazakallah khairun

  8. May Allah bless you and all of us. We should try to remember these adhkaar and use them daily. I would start memorising them one every week from today, Insha Allah. May Allah help us!

    • Thanks for your comment Fouzia. Insha’Allah this article will remain online for the foreseeable future as I am not sure a pdf is available now

  9. JAZAAKILLAH KHAYR for remind us to do adhkar. Alhamdulillah through adhkar and dua i have a happy life though i have family problems.

  10. Very informative … JazakAllaahu khair. I very much required them as I often sway from being normal to extreme sad.. I m a pessimist

  11. Many thanks and Allah’s blessings to Sheima for this treasured compilation. Only this Ramadan I learned some of these adkhaars and I now say them both morning and evening. Knowing the meanings and reciting with mindfullness can profoundly enhance the spiritual experience, as I have discovered. I tend to suffer from bouts of anxiety , but I now feel much more at ease as I strive to engage in zikr on a more regular basis. During the rest period in the Taraweeh, a learned member taught my congregation many of these adkhaar through multiple repetitions. I found this to be a very effective way of imparting new knowledge and practice to an essentially captive audience.
    May Allah Almighty bless us all as we strive to gain nearness to Him and to earn His favour.

  12. masha’Allah sister, such a great compilation of the dhikr Alhamdulillah. May Allah reward you with His bounties Aameen.

  13. Marsha Allah. I’ve been doing this for some time now and I fully agree with you. Am much more at peace than before. Alhamdulillah. May Allah swta reward reward you for the reminder.

  14. Salam alaik to everyone.

    Forgive me before I ask this question that I hope everyone is in good health and mind and that those who reads this will not think negatively.

    From where I come from, the way I see it, those who are less religious and sadly, those non-muslims are more calmed, tactful and respectful. Well this is debateable. Not everyone is like that. Many of my mosq friends are well-mannered and are great of all companions, but there are some who even though they perform prayers attend classes and yet they still blast out harsh words when they are angry.

    Kind of sad because its showing a really bad impression on Islam and my race.

    That’s why when i read about the psychology of dhikr I was smirking not because it is not true, but because the way I see Muslims that I know, surely the dikr they are practicing is not the dikr that this article is talking about.

    • Walaikum Salam Br Zaid, I appreciate your honest words and I agree that some Muslims do not have good manners unfortunately. My guess is that their dhikr may be lacking the necessary sincerity to change the heart for the better

    • sallam alaikom brother Zaid,

      ma-sha-Allah! you made me think about what you mentioned about being angry…etc.

      It is truly unfortunate that when we as humans do succumb to our innate emotions…etc. It is true also, perhaps that most of those who do really care are hot blooded, unlike those trained and sophistically come across as calm and cool headed!… is a shame, as it really is the government’s policies and media outlets that are the real cause of radicalization, if there is even such a term..i.e. if it is as such… kufrization is a cause too!!…this may come across as I am a radical….my hands are up because I am currently writing this with very low iman and desire following……albeit, they say anger is a form of one feeling superior, i.e. thinking that they and their way is the only way…! Al-hamdullah, we know ISLAM is SUPERIOR, yet I suppose, as the followers we are we were just given the gift of islam….As to superiority, which when talking on an individual level, could it be taken as arrogance? Perhaps so! With that said, is it anger that leads to arrogance or vice versa ???with that said yet again, there is also a form of arrogance that Allah loves (red bandana and Uhud)!…….As to anger, like everything. …..there is two of each! and how makes the negative in ones favour!…Suppose it boils down to al-wala w al-bara…and personally, I have not read too well into that as of yet!…….As to being angry or not… do we be azaa on the disbelievers? And azila on the believers?…..i.e all powerful yet all loving!..truely, it is a balance that only a few master, i.e. when to and when not to….and with my arrogant self, I hope that I am not misunderstood, because in no way am I on the middle way…..albeit may satan go to hell!!..sorry I am a sad loner….

      As to the defaming of race…true that they say there is hadith that the love of one’s nation is from iman…but also, and this does not mean I am pointing the finger at you, 3 back at me…..but unfortunately, nationalism/patriotism…is what satan has injected into us as an ummah…..hadith along the words of ‘whoever calls to al-asabayiah and dies upon it, dies a death of jahliyah’. I would like to state to those monitoring, personally and hopefully and may be talking on behalf of the western muslims (perhaps not) as well, but we would defend these lands if invaded by an outside force….! (only if they were on falsehood)!!!!
      Sorry I am currently pessimistic and it seems that talking and writing has no benefit..if that is to be twisted or edited..then let it be! do not worry I have a shovel now.


  15. Alhamdulillah though I recite these duas every day I didn’t know the rewards. How merciful Allah is. Subuhanallah. May Allah reward you for doing this work Aameen

      • sallam alaikom sister sheima,

        peace unto you and the ummah. see you in heaven if we get there……

        thank you and may Allah reward you and the rest


  17. MashaAllah very nice article. May Allah bless you for compiling it so well. Here are some beautiful verses from the Quran which makes us realise more on the importance of dhikr:

    Allah placed His remembrance above prayer in value by making prayer the means and remembrance the goal. He said:

    “Remember me, I shall remember you.” (2:152)
    “Lo! Worship guards one from lewdness and iniquity, but verily, remembrance of Allah is greater/more important.” (29:45)
    “He is successful who purifies himself, and remembers the name of his Lord, and so prays.” (87:14-15)
    “So establish prayer for My remembrance.” (20:14)
    “O you who believe! Celebrate the praises of Allah, and do so often; and glorify Him morning and evening.” (33:41-42)
    “Those who remember Allah standing, sitting and on their sides,” (3:191), and
    “Those men and women who engage much in Allah’s praise. For them has Allah prepared forgiveness and a great reward.” (3:191, 33:35)

    These are only few and they are many more. Its upto us how much we practice it day & night. I am particularly amazed by the ayat where Allah s.w says: “Remember me, I shall remember you.” (2:152)
    What more do we want than the blessing of Allah remembering us in the sense bringing us more closer to Him.
    May Allah s.w make it easy for us to attain His guidance and follow the path of beloved Prophet PBUH (Ameen).

    • May Allah bless you Br Mohammed for sharing these amazing verses from the holy Quran. Ameen to your beautiful dua. Please consider writing an article for Productive Muslim as I sense that you have some great ideas to share

    Jazakillah khaira for your beautiful post! May Allah accept it and multiply the rewards!
    Just wanted to point out the misspelling of ‘sallalahu ‘alaihi wa sallam’ in Arabic (written as saam above which affects the meaning)
    بارك الله فيك!
    Keep up the fabulous work!

    • Wa alaikum as salam warahmatullah wabarakatu dear Syma. Wa iyaki and Ameen to your kind dua. Thank you for your encouraging words and for pointing out this misspelling!

  24. AssalamuAlaikum Sr,
    Subhan Allah, I had no idea shaytan would use plenty of tricks to make us feel lazy! Because I felt that during Qur’an memorizing! Thanks a lot for this information. J.A.K

  25. Salaam alaikum, loved these reminders! I just noticed there is one transliteration typo in the before sleeping section for chapter 2 ayat 285 of surah baqarah. It says Aamanar-Rasoolu bimaa ‘unzila [ilaihi] mir-Rabbihi walmu’minoon. In brackets is what is missing and only in the transliteration
