Chapter 21/ Dhikr and Du’aa 
 
Dhikr and Du’aa: 
 
Dhikr is an Arabic word. If 
you do dhikr of someone 
you remember that 
person. You mention him 
to yourself or to someone. 
In Islam it means 
remembering Allah. 
 
Du’aa is also an Arabic word. When you make 
du’aa to someone you pray to that person to give 
you what you need. A Muslim only prays to Allah 
and asks Allah for whatever he needs. 
 
Du’aa is a way in which Muslims worship Allah. 
Muslims only make du’aa to Allah. 
 
We should make every kind of du’aa to Allah as He 
says: “Invoke Me and I will answer your call.” We 
should ask Allah alone for help. You will learn about 
dhikr and du’aa in detail later, inshaa Allah. 
 
Dhikr is remembrance of Allah. 
Allah is our Creator. We have 
nothing of our own. Allah has 
given us all we have – our life 
 
and all we possess. Every gift is from Allah. 
 
We should be thankful to Him for these gifts. We 
should love Him above all things. We worship Him 
alone. We worship Allah alone, fear Him alone, put 
our trust only in Him and hope only for His mercy. 
 
We worship Him by praying to Him. 
 
But how? Allah’s Messenger ( ) said that we can 
 
do this by saying a number of statements, like the 
following ones: 
 
Subhoan-Allaah, Al-Hamdu lilloah, Laa ilaaha 
illallaah, Allaahu Akbar 
 
If we say this from our hearts, we can get closer to 
Allah. No name is greater than Allah’s name. 
 
Chapter 21/ Dhikr and Du’aa
Du’aa: 
 
Prayer: Du’aa is a great tool in the hands of a 
Muslim. Prayer is a Muslim’s strength. We can pray 
to Allah in our own language. We can pray to Allah 
in our own words, but it is always better to pray as our 
Prophet ( ) has taught us. Allah’s Messenger ( ) 
has taught us supplications or du’aa for every 
occasion. 
 
These are some of them: 
 
If you leave your house say: 
 
Bismillaah, tawakkaltu ‘alallaah, wa laa hawla wa 
laa quwwata illaa billaah 
 
In the name of Allah; I place my trust in Allah, and there is 
neither power, nor might except with Allah
