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)?
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.
