Below is a short list of some adhkar that you can incorporate in your day.

1. Reciting Quran: the best dhikr

Reward:

You will be rewarded 10 rewards for every letter individual letter you recite. This incentive should set reading the Quran as a top your priority in life.

2. Subhan Allahi wa bi-hamdihi (Far removed is Allah from every imperfection and may He be Praised)

Rewards:

1.     When this is said 100 times every morning and evening, the merit of this is so great that no one will have done better than this individual, except someone who said the same or more.[1]

2.     A tree will be planted in Paradise (for the sayer) each time they say this.[2]

3.     Whoever says this 100 times a day, his sins will be forgiven even if they were as much as the foam of the sea.[3]

Reward:

We know that this dhikr is said after each formal prayer, but when Fatima the daughter of the Prophet Muhammad, may the mercy and blessing of Allah be upon him, came to her father requesting a servant to help with the household chores, the Prophet taught her this dhikr instead of giving her a servant. He said that repeating it would give better results than having a servant.

4.     It is cure for a heart that becomes busy with thoughts. (based on a hadith in Sahih Muslim)[9]

7. Subhan Allah, wa alhamdulillah, wa la ilaha illa Allah, wa Allahu Akbar (Far removed is Allah from every imperfection, all praise and thanks are for Allah, there is no true deity but Allah, Allah is the Greatest)

Rewards:
