The Adhkar of the Morning and Evening – Part 2

The following Adhkar of the morning and evening have been taken from authentic Ahadeeth that I've gathered together from various books. I first mentioned the particular Dhikr in Arabic, then its translation, along with its reference in the books of Hadeeth. The Prophet (SAW) mentioned certain virtues and rewards for those who recite these Adhkar. If one is interested, he can refer to the Hadeeth where the Dhikr is mentioned for further detail.

1. The Adhkar that are said both in the morning and evening:


اللهُ لاَ إِلَـهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ الْحَيُّ الْقَيُّومُ لاَ تَأْخُذُهُ سِنَةٌ وَلاَ نَوْمٌ لَّهُ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الأَرْضِ مَن ذَا الَّذِي يَشْفَعُ عِنْدَهُ إِلاَّ بِإِذْنِهِ يَعْلَمُ مَا بَيْنَ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَمَا خَلْفَهُمْ وَلاَ يُحِيطُونَ بِشَيْءٍ مِّنْ عِلْمِهِ إِلاَّ بِمَا شَاء وَسِعَ كُرْسِيُّهُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضَ وَلاَ يَؤُودُهُ حِفْظُهُمَا وَهُوَ الْعَلِيُّ الْعَظِيمُ
“Allah – none has the right to be worshipped except Him, the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of all existence. Neither drowsiness overtakes Him nor sleep. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the Earth. Who is it that can intercede with Him except by His permission? He knows what is presently before them and what will be after them, and they encompass not a thing of His knowledge except for what He wills. His Kursi (chair or footstool) extends over the heavens and the Earth, and their preservation tires Him not. And He is the Most High, the Most Great.” [Al-Baqarah 2:255] [Nasa'i and Hakim]

قُلْ هُوَ اللهُ أَحَدٌ * اللهُ الصَّمَدُ * لَمْ يَلِدْ وَلَمْ يُولَدْ * وَلَمْ يَكُن لَّهُ كُفُوًا أَحَدٌ

قُلْ أَعُوذُ بِرَبِّ الْفَلَقِ * مِن شَرِّ مَا خَلَقَ * وَمِن شَرِّ غَاسِقٍ إِذَا وَقَبَ * وَمِن شَرِّ النَّفَّاثَاتِ فِي الْعُقَدِ * وَمِن شَرِّ حَاسِدٍ إِذَا حَسَدَ
(Three times) 
“Say: I seek refuge in the Lord of daybreak, from the evil of that which He created, from the evil of darkness when it settles, from the evil of the blowers in knots (those who practice magic), and from the evil of an envier when he envies.” [Al-Falaq 113:1-5] [Abu Dawud, Tirmidhi, Nasa'i, and Ahmad]

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
قُلْ أَعُوذُ بِرَبِّ النَّاس * مَلِكِ النَّاسِ * إِلَهِ النَّاسِ * مِن شَرِّ الْوَسْوَاسِ الْخَنَّاسِ * الَّذِي يُوَسْوِسُ فِي صُدُورِ النَّاسِ * مِنَ الْجِنَّةِ وَ النَّاسِ
(Three times)
“Say: I seek refuge in the Lord of mankind, the Sovereign of mankind, the God of mankind, from the evil of the retreating whisperer (a devil), who whispers evil into the breasts of mankind, from among the jinn and mankind.” [An-Nas 114:1-6] [Abu Dawud, Tirmidhi, Nasa'i, and Ahmad]

يَا حَيُّ يَا قَيُّومُ بِرَحْمَتِكَ أَسْتَغِيثُ أَصْلِحْ لِي شَأْنِي كُلَّهُ وَلاَ تَكِلْنِي إِلى نَفْسِي طَرْفَةَ عَيْنٍ

اللَّهُمَّ أَنْتَ رَبِّي، لا إِلَهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ، خَلَقْتَنِي وَأَنَا عَبْدُكَ، وَأَنَا عَلَى عَهْدِكَ وَوَعْدِكَ مَا اسْتَطَعْتُ، أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا صَنَعْتُ أَبُوءُ لَكَ بِنِعْمَتِكَ عَلَيَّ، وَأَبُوءُ لَكَ بِذَنْبِي، فَاغْفِرْ لِي فَإِنَّهُ لا يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ إِلاَّ أَنْت
“O Allah, You are my Lord, none has the right to be worshipped except You. You created me and I am Your servant. I abide to Your covenant and promise as best I can, I take refuge in You from the evil of which I have committed, I acknowledge Your favour upon me, and I acknowledge my sin. So forgive me, for verily none can forgive sin except You.” [Bukhari, Tirmidhi, Nasa'i, Ahmad, Ibn Hibban, and Hakim]

اللَّهُمَّ فَاطِرَ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ عَالِمَ الْغَيْبِ وَالشَّهَادَةِ رَبَّ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ وَمَلِيكَهُ، أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ، أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ نَفْسِي، وَشَرِّ الشَّيْطَانِ وَشِرْكِهِ، وَأَن أَقْتَرِفَ عَلَى نَفْسِي سُوءًا أَو أَجُرَّهُ إِلى مُسْلِمٍ
“O Allah, Creator of the heavens and the Earth, Knower of the unseen and the seen, Lord and Sovereign of all things, I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped except You. I take refuge in You from the evil of my soul and from the evil and Shirk of Shaitan, and from committing wrong against my soul or from bringing such upon another Muslim.” [Abu Dawud, Tirmidhi, Nasa'i, Ahmad, Darimi, Ibn Hibban, and Hakim]

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ الْعَافِيَةَ فِي الدُّنْيَا وَالآخِرَةِ، اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ الْعَفْوَ وَالْعَافِيَةَ فِي دِينِي وَدُنْيَايَ وَأَهْلِي وَمَالِيَ، اللَّهُمَّ اسْتُرْ عَوْرَاتِي وَآمِنْ رَوْعَاتِي، اللَّهُمَّ احْفَظْنِي مِنْ بَيْنِ يَدَيَّ وَمِنْ خَلْفِي وَعَنْ يَمِينِي وَعَنْ شِمَالِي وَمِنْ فَوْقِي، وَأَعُوذُ بِعَظَمَتِكَ أَنْ أُغْتَالَ مِنْ تَحْتِي
“O Allah, I ask You for well-being in this life and the next. O Allah, I ask You for pardon and well-being in my religious and worldly affairs, and my family and my wealth. O Allah, conceal my weaknesses and set at ease my dismay. O Allah, preserve me from in front of me, from behind me, on my right, on my left, and from above me, and I take refuge with You lest I be swallowed up from beneath me (by the Earth).” [Abu Dawud, Nasa'i, Ibn Majah, Ahmad, Ibn Hibban, and Hakim]

Whoever is able to recite and memorize all of these Adhkar, then indeed that is a great blessing from Allah. As for those who are not able to do so, then let them suffice with that which they are capable of, even if it be just one of these Adhkar. We ask Allah to grant us the ability to recite and memorize these Adhkar on a daily basis, and reward us with what He has promised those who recite these Adhkar.
