Morning and Evening Dhikr

بِسْمِ ﷲِ ال َّ رحْمٰنِ ال َّ رحِیْمِ
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

Adhkar is the plural of the word ‘Dhikr’ which means rememberance. According to the authentic Sunnah, the Prophet SAWS used to recite a collection of du’as and phrases praising Allah in the morning and evening, which we now know as the morning/evening adhkar.
This act is also mentioned in the Qur’an, in which Allah says: “Remember Allah often and glorify Him morning and evening.” [Surah Al-Ahzab, verse 41-42]
Just to list down the benefits of this practice, the morning and even adhkar protect you against:.

  • Kufr (disbelief)
  • Evil people and Jinn
  • Punishment of the Grave
  • Laziness and Procrastination
  • Self-Harm
  • Stress from Debts
  • Stinginess
  • Hell-fire
  • Sins and their Consequences
  • Fear and Panic
  • Anxiety and Grief
  • Misery of Old Age
    Black Magic and Evil Eye
  • Unexpected Difficulties and Sudden Calamities
  • Evil Whispers from Shayateen
  • Oppression
  • Poverty
  • Envy and Jealousy

Ibn Qayyim RH said: “The morning and evening adhkar play the role of a shield; the thicker it is, the more its owner is protected. In fact, its strength can reach to such an extent that the arrow shot at it will bounce back to affect the one who shot it.”
According to the majority of the scholars, the morning adhkar is to be read any time between Fajr and sunrise, and the evening adhkar is to be read any time between ‘Asr and Maghrib. Even if you miss them at these times, you can make up for them later, and it will not be a sin upon you.
Other benefits of maintaining this practice are: the Angels making du’a for you, Allah increasing your provision (rizq), Allah suffices your needs for the day, the charity of the body is paid off, immense rewards, and an easy death.
