Benefits Of Dua In The Morning And Evening

  • Whoever maintains the morning and evening adhkar, the adhkar after the prayers, and the adhkar before sleeping will be written amongst those ‘who remember Allah much.’ (Ibn al-Salah).
  • The verses of the morning and evening adhkar encourage starting and ending the day with dhikr. This is so that one may commence and end with the worship of Allah, and the dhikr will expiate for the sins perpetrated in between these two periods. (al-Nawawi)
  • The morning and evening adhkar play the role of a shield; the thicker it is, the more its owner is protected. Rather, its strength can reach to such an extent that the arrow shot at it will bounce back to affect the one who shot it. (Ibn al-Qayyim)
  • Wear the ‘coat’ of adhkar so it can protect you from the evil of humans and jinn. And cover your souls with istighfār (seeking forgiveness) so it can erase the sins of the night and day. (Ibn Kathir)
