يٰٓاَيُّهَا الَّذِيْنَ اٰمَنُوا اذْكُرُوا اللّٰهَ ذِكْرًا كَثِيْرًاۙ وَّسَبِّحُوْهُ بُكْرَةً وَّاَصِيْلًا هُوَ الَّذِيْ يُصَلِّيْ عَلَيْكُمْ وَمَلٰۤىِٕكَتُهٗ لِيُخْرِجَكُمْ مِّنَ الظُّلُمٰتِ اِلَى النُّوْرِۗ وَكَانَ بِالْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ رَحِيْمًا
“O, you who believe, remember Allah with as much dhikr as possible and glorify Him in the morning and evening. It is He who gives mercy to you and His angels (asking forgiveness for you) so that He brings you out of various darkness into light (which is bright). He is Most Merciful to the believers. (QS 33: 41-43)
Muslims believe getting some of Allah’s blessing can be difficult to approach. Even so, if they follow Allah’s rules based on the Quran and do good deeds, approaching the benefits of Dhikr might be easier.
