Dhikr To Soothe the Heart and Mind
Usually after praying in congregation in the mosque, there are some children who are sometimes in a hurry to leave the place of prayer. At that time, there was Mr. Ali and his siblings who also prayed in congregation at the mosque.
As parents, of course Pak Ali and his siblings shake their heads. Why up like that ??? Pak Ali, who is also the caretaker of the mosque, who happened to be in the back shof, prevented the children from leaving the mosque, and told the children to sit down first, and read the dhikr first.
Mr. Ali prevents the children from getting accustomed to reciting dhikr, also their behavior can be educated, plus more so that the children know what dhikr reads after reading the prayer, and not immediately let’s just go away after praying.
Lafadz or Remembrance Readings after Prayer
On this occasion, we will learn about what is read when we have finished praying. Previously, we must know that in the Qur’an there are also verses that explain that with this dhikr can make our hearts calm.
.. أَلَا بِذِكۡرِ ٱللَّهِ تَطۡمَئِنُّ
Alaa bidzikrillaahi tathma-innul hearts (u)
“…. Remember, only in remembering God is the heart at peace. (QS. Ar-Ra’du (13): 28)
This remembrance comes from Arabic which means to remember, designate, or it can also mean praise. Dhikr to Allah Almighty, the intention is to remember Allah by saying a lafadz or certain readings. Examples are reading lafadz tasbih, tahmid, takbir, tahlil, istighfar.
Lafadz or recitation of the dhikr are all read after the prayer, or before praying. Here are some lafadz or dhikr readings that are read:
- Lafadz Istighfar (read three times)
اِسْتَغْفِرُ اللهَ الْعَظِيْمِ
Astaghfirullaahal ‘adziim (i) , which means: Forgive me O Allah, the Most Great Essence
- Lafadz Tasbih (read 33 times)

Apart from the five lafadz or dhikr that are recited after the prayer above, there is another dhikr or prayer which is usually recited after reading istighfar. The following are the dhikr or prayers:
O Cake essence, vmnk essence, valyk yvd essence, fhyna rabbanā balslam, vadkhlna paradise Darussalam, tbarkt rabbanā and talyt or zaljlal valakram
Allaahumma antas salaam, wa minkas salaam, wa ilaika ya’uudus salaam, fahayyinaa rabbanaa bis salaam, wa adkhilnal jannata daarassalam, tabaarakta rabbanaa wa ta’alaita yaa dzal jalaali wal ikraam.
“O Allah, You are the Deliverer, and from you comes (salvation), and unto you is salvation; You are the Most Beneficent of the Blessed One who has the Glory and the Glory. Glory be to you, O Most High and Glorious God. ”
When reading dzikir, try to read it calmly and not in a hurry, after greeting read the recitation of the dhikr in sequence. Namely by reading istighfar first, then reading the dhikr or prayer about salvation above, followed by reading prayer beads, tahmid, takbir and tahlil.
By dhikr, every human being wishes for Allah to be given peace and tranquility in his life, be forgiven of all his sins and be thankful for all the favors of Allah given to him.
As an exercise, maybe we can ask for the help of parents, teachers, or our friends who have memorized it correctly to see whether our recitation of dhikr is in accordance with the correct and correct order and recitation.
