  1. Thanks for sharing this. Since I don’t speak Arabic, I find these prayers difficult to say (and I won’t mention the long repetition). But what I find helpful is to say them right after salaat because I am already in the prayer mode. Sometimes, it is also a nice reminder to say one (or some) of the 99 names as they help meditate on the attribute of God and his omnipotence.

    • You’re most welcome, sister. To be fair, I use a prayer book for the prayers as I haven’t memorized them all yet, but insha’Allah ta’ala in time I will. I also say them after salat for that same reason. Remembrance of Allah is what we strive for, as this dunya can be overwhelming without His presence. May Allah reward you and return your kindness.
