Are we rewarded for dhikr in the mind of the type of saying 1000 times estagfirullah, la ilahe ilallah, Alhamdulilah, ja mukal libel kulubi thebit kalbi ala dinik in the mind only without uttering a single sound or word? In other word you say them only in the mind without moving the lips.

And Does Allah accept and reward an invocation or supplication of the type: Allah please give me good understanding of quran and sunnah, Allah please give me strong iman, Allah please give me good health and solve my problems, if it is done in the mind only without moving the lips, without uttering any word or sound?

  • I was thinking about this today, when came here saw this I was what a coincidence. – MrJannah Jan 16 at 10:36


Abu Hurairah (My Allah be pleased with him) reported: The messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "Allah the Exalted says: 'I am as my slave expects me to be, and I am with him when he remembers Me. If he remembers Me inwardly, I will remember him inwardly, and if he remembers Me in an assembly, I will remember him in a better assembly (i.e., in the assembly of angels)." [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

And there is no wrong thing about your innovative supplication but it's better to use the supplications mentioned in Quran and Sunnah.

  • Please mark your quotes as such (see my edit for future posts). Note that there are certainly better evidences. – Medi1Saif Aug 19 '19 at 8:21

Every moment spent in the remembrance of our Lord is rewarded. You don't have to say it out loud to get reward.

There is the Hadith that tells Muslims to stop oppression when they see it. They should stop it with force if they can. If they can't use force, they should stop it with their words. If they can't say something against it out loud, then know it in their hearts that it is wrong.


On the authority of Abu Sa`eed al-Khudree (may Allah be pleased with him) who said:

I heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) say, “Whosoever of you sees an evil, let him change it with his hand; and if he is not able to do so, then [let him change it] with his tongue; and if he is not able to do so, then with his heart — and that is the weakest of faith.” [Muslim]

If knowing that a sin is wrong in your heart is acceptable, why not dhikr and supplication?
