Important Dhikrs After Obligatory Prayer (Salat) ~ Hi all readers! In this article, I will explain the important dhikrs after the obligatory prayer. It’s true, we are not obliged to do that after prayer. But it would be better if we did it because specifically the Prophet Muhammad had advocated it.

As always, beforehand I will quote some of the hadith that are specifically related to our discussion. Pay attention!

Hadith About Important Dhikrs After Obligatory Prayer (Salat)

The hadith about important Dhikrs after obligatory prayer (Salat) that I mean is as follows:

عَنْ أَبِيْ هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ عَنْ رَسُوْلِ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ ؛ مَنْ سَبَّحَ اللهَ دُبُرَ كُلِّ صَلَاةٍ ثَلَاثًا وَثَلَاثِيْنَ ، وَحَمِدَ اللهَ ثَلَاثًا وَثَلَاثِيْنَ ، وَكَبَّرَ اللهَ ثَلَاثًا وَثَلَاثِيْنَ , فَتِلْكَ تِسْعٌ وَتِسْعُوْنَ ، وَقَالَ تَمَامَ الْمِائَةِ ؛ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيْكَ لَهُ ، لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيْرٌ ، غُفِرَتْ خَطَايَاهُ وَلَوْ كَانَتْ مِثْلَ زَبَدِ الْبَحْرِ . رَوَاهُ مُسْلِمٌ

From Abu Hurairah radliyallaahu anhu, from the Messenger of Allah sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam, he said, “Whoever reads the tasbih to Allah after completing the prayer up to thirty-three times, praises Allah to thirty-three times, and reads takbir to Allah until three forty-three times, the total number is ninety-nine, and he said to perfect the hundredth, “There is no god but Allah Almighty, there is no ally for him, all kingdoms belong to him, all praise is his, He is able to do everything.” Then all of his sins will be forgiven even though they are as much as the foam of the sea.” The hadith is narrated by Muslim.

عَنْ مُعَاذٍ بْنِ جَبَلٍ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ أَنَّ رَسُوْلَ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ لَهُ ؛ أُوْصِيْكَ يَا مُعَاذُ لَا تَدَعَنَّ دُبُرَ كُلِّ صَلَاةٍ أَنْ تَقُوْلَ ؛ اللَّهُمَّ أَعِنِّي عَلَى ذِكْرِكَ وَشُكْرِكَ وَحُسْنِ عِبَادَتِكَ . رَوَاهُ أَحْمَدُ وَأَبُوْ دَاوُدَ وَالنَّسَائِيُّ

From Mu’adz bin Jabal radliyallaahu anhu, that the Messenger of Allah sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam had said to him, “I have an inheritance to you, O Mu’adz, every time you finish praying do not leave dzikir, “O Allah, help me to dhikr unto you, thank thy nimat, and worship you well.” The hadith is narrated by Ahmad, Abu Daud, and an-Nasa’i.

عَنْ أَبِيْ أُمَامَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ ؛ قَالَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ؛ مَنْ قَرَأَ آيَةَ الْكُرْسِيِّ دُبُرَ كُلِّ صَلَاةٍ مَكْتُوْبَةٍ لَمْ يَمْنَعْهُ مِنْ دُخُوْلِ الْجَنَّةِ إِلَّا الْمَوْتُ . رَوَاهُ النَّسَائِيُّ . وَزَادَ فِيْهِ الطَّبْرَانِيُّ ؛ وَقُلْ هُوَ اللهُ أَحَدٌ

From Abu Umamah radliyallaahu anhu, he said, “Allah’s Messenger sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam said, “Whoever reads the verse al-Kursi after each obligatory prayer, then nothing prevents him from entering Heaven except only death.” The hadith is narrated by an-Nasa’i. ath-Thabrani added the editor of the hadith, “And say, He is Allah Almighty.”

All readers! There are several things related to some of the hadith above that I want to explain specifically;

One; The sentences recommended by the Prophet Muhammad so that we read them after each obligatory prayer are selected sentences that have enormous benefits.

Two; The minimum sentence of the tasbih that we say is سُبْحَانَ اللهُ (Allah Most Holy).

Three; At least the praise sentence that we say is الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ (all praise belongs to Allah).

Four; The minimum takbir sentence that we say is اللهُ أَكْبَرُ (Allah is the Greatest).

Five; Complementary sentences are according to the recommendations of the Prophet Muhammad لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيْكَ لَهُ لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيْر.

Six; The prayer recommended by the Prophet Muhammad in the second hadith is اللَّهُمَّ أَعِنِّي عَلَى ذِكْرِكَ وَشُكْرِكَ وَحُسْنِ عِبَادَتِكَ.

Seven; The verse al-Kursi is as follows;

ٱللَّهُ لَآ إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ ٱلۡحَيُّ ٱلۡقَيُّومُۚ لَا تَأۡخُذُهُۥ سِنَةٞ وَلَا نَوۡمٞۚ لَّهُۥ مَا فِي ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَمَا فِي ٱلۡأَرۡضِۗ مَن ذَا ٱلَّذِي يَشۡفَعُ عِندَهُۥٓ إِلَّا بِإِذۡنِهِۦۚ يَعۡلَمُ مَا بَيۡنَ أَيۡدِيهِمۡ وَمَا خَلۡفَهُمۡۖ وَلَا يُحِيطُونَ بِشَيۡءٖ مِّنۡ عِلۡمِهِۦٓ إِلَّا بِمَا شَآءَۚ وَسِعَ كُرۡسِيُّهُ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلۡأَرۡضَۖ وَلَا يَ‍ُٔودُهُۥ حِفۡظُهُمَاۚ وَهُوَ ٱلۡعَلِيُّ ٱلۡعَظِيمُ ٢٥٥

Allah is He besides Whom there is no god, the Everliving, the Self-subsisting by Whom all subsist; slumber does not overtake Him nor sleep; whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth is His; who is he that can intercede with Him but by His permission? He knows what is before them and what is behind them, and they cannot comprehend anything out of His knowledge except what He pleases, His knowledge extends over the heavens and the earth, and the preservation of them both tires Him not, and He is the Most High, the Great. (Al-Baqarah [2]; 255).
