It is permissible to read athkar in bed. I usually finish fajr prayer, close the lights, go to bed, and read both the 'morning athkar' and 'sleep athkar' from my Athkar App on my iphone.

Is this ok to do? or are there rules when reading athkar?

  • I just thought that maybe laying down in bed in the dark and reading athkar from phone isn't the 'right etiquette' to read athkar. May 7, 2019 at 21:41

There isn't any reason why it should not be permissible. One should do dhikr in all states.

الذين يذكرون الله قياما وقعودا وعلى جنوبهم

Who remember Allah while standing or sitting or [lying] on their sides ...

Quran 3:191

كان النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم يذكر الله على كل أحيانه

The Prophet ﷺ used to remember Allah in all situations.

Sahih Muslim
