Daily Remembrance – Adkhar

Dhikr for every morning and evening

1. Ayat ul Kursi

Allah! There is no god but He – the Living, the Self-subsisting, Eternal. No slumber can seize Him nor Sleep. His are all things in the heavens and on earth. Who is there can intercede in His presence except as he permits? He knows what (appears to His creatures As) before or after or behind them. Nor shall they compass aught of His knowledge except as He wills. His throne doth extend over the heavens and on earth, and He feels no fatigue in guarding and preserving them, For He is the Most High, the Supreme (in glory). (2:255)

اللهُ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ الْحَيُّ الْقَيُّومُ لاَ تَأْخُذُهُ سِنَةٌ وَلاَ نَوْمٌ لَّهُ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الأَرْضِ مَن ذَا الَّذِي يَشْفَعُ عِنْدَهُ إِلاَّ بِإِذْنِهِ يَعْلَمُ مَا بَيْنَ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَمَا خَلْفَهُمْ وَلاَ يُحِيطُونَ بِشَىْءٍ مِّنْ عِلْمِهِ إِلاَّ بِمَا شَاء وَسِعَ كُرْسِيُّهُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضَ وَلاَ يَؤُودُهُ حِفْظُهُمَا وَهُوَ الْعَلِيُّ الْعَظِيمُ

Allâhu lâ ilâha illâ huwa-l-hayyu-l-qayyûm. Lâ ta’khudhuhu sinatun wa lâ nawm, lahu mâ fî s-samâwâti wa mâ fî-l-ard. Man dhâ l-ladhî yashfa’u ‘indahu illâ bi-idhnihi. Ya’lamu mâ bayna aydîhim wa mâ khalfahum. Wa lâ yuhîtûna bi-shay’in min ‘ilmihi illâ bi-mâ shâ’a. Wasi’a kursiyyuhu s-samâwâti wa-l-ard. Wa lâ ya’ûduhu hifzuhumâ, wa huwa-l-‘aliyyu-l-‘azîm.
