Dhikr

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
قُلْ هُوَ اللَّهُ أَحَدٌ
اللَّهُ الصَّمَدُ
لَمْ يَلِدْ وَلَمْ يُولَدْ
وَلَمْ يَكُن لَّهُ كُفُوًا أَحَدٌ


Bismillahi-r-Rahmani-r-Rahim
Qul Hu Allah Hu Ahad
Allah Hu Samad
Lam yalid wa lam yulad
Wa lam yakun lahu kufuwan Ahad 



In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
He is Allah, the One Reality 
Allah, the All-Encompassing.
No reality but Him, nor does He originate from another reality,
& nothing compares to Him, apart from Him nothing exists. 



Sura Ikhlas - The Verse of Sincerity, Transparency and Unity (Chapter 112 Of The Holy Quran).
Recite preferably before sunrise. The Prophet Muhammad declared to his beloved wife Aisha that the value of reciting three Sura Ikhlas (above) was equivalent to the power of reciting the entire Quran.
