Whether it’s short prayers or lengthy recitations from the Holy Quran but, What are the best Thikrs for Ramadan?

Ramadan and Thikr

The Quran emphasises the importance of constant remembrance. This month provides a unique opportunity for us to fulfil our duties to Allah through Thikr recitation and other good deeds, ultimately bringing us closer to the beauty of our religion.

“يَـٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ ٱذْكُرُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ ذِكْرًۭا كَثِيرًۭا “

“O believers! Always remember Allah often,”


The Power of Thikr

Reciting Thikr can indeed help us feel closer to Allah, strengthening our faith and purifying our hearts. Here are some of the best Thikr to incorporate into your Ramadan:

Ayat Kursi (The Throne Verse):

“ٱللَّهُ لَآ إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ ٱلْحَىُّ ٱلْقَيُّومُ ۚ”

“Allah! There is no god ˹worthy of worship˺ except Him, the Ever-Living, All-Sustaining.”


Reciting Ayat Kursi, is one of the most significant Quranic verses, it offers us protection and offers abundant rewards from Allah.

Istighfar (Seeking Forgiveness):

“أَسْتَغْفِرُ اللّٰهَ”

I seek forgiveness in God.

Reciting this Thikr allows us to cleanse our hearts and souls by seeking forgiveness from Allah and feeling renewed in His presence.

Affirmations of Faith:

“لَّآ اِلٰهَ اِلَّآ اَنْتَ سُبْحٰنَكَ اِنِّيْ كُنْتُ مِنَ الظّٰلِمِيْنَ “

There is no deity except You; exalted are You. Indeed, I have been of the wrongdoers.

These affirmations remind us to completely surrender to Allah, attracting His rewards and helping us overcome hardships.
