What is meant by Dhikr (Remembrance of Allah

Q 6: What should we do if we want to recite Dhikr (Remembrance of Allah) and convey peace and blessings upon Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)?

A: Allah (Exalted be He) is remembered and approached by reciting the Qur'an; saying La ilaha illa Allah (there is no god but Allah); glory is to Allah and praise is due to Him; glory is to Allah, the Great; Glorified be Allah, Praise be to Allah, La ilaha illa Allah, Allahu Akbar (Allah is the Greatest) and similar sayings reported from the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him). A person should send peace and blessings upon Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) in the forms (Part No. 24; Page No. 171) reported from him in the Hadiths. You can refer to books of Adhkar and Du`a' (supplication) such as "Al-Kalim Al-Tayyib" by Ibn Taymiyyah, "Al-Wabil Al-Sayyib" by Ibn Al-Qayyim, "Al-Adhkar" by Al-Nawawy and "Gala' Al-Afham fi Al-Salah wal-Salam `ala Khayr Al-Anam".May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
