The Best Method for Counting Dhikr

Bismillah, alhamdulillah, wa salat wa salam ala rasulullah

This is my new method for making dhikr. Its easier than using a complex counting system or tasbih (rosary beads) for lengthy dhikrs.

a modest hand counter for enumerating the endless blessings of Allah (i.e. dhikr!)

It might not be easy to find, but alhamdulillah, I found mine at an Islamic clothing store. It can be a little loud but you can muffle the sound. Often, no one notices even in public. My beads break all the time, so I figured a ‘modern’ (gasp!) solution need be in order. Alhamdulillah, hope everyone benefits. đŸ™‚

Subhana kallahumma wa bihamdika ash-haduana la illaha illa ant astaghfiruka wa atubu ilayk, ameen.


  1. LOL – they sell these in Madinah too for tasbih, still, theres something warm about using tasbeeh beads.

    Alhamdulillah, creativity is at work here.

  2. i found a walkometter or watever there called yesterday instead of counting my steps i can shake it everytime I make dhikr. FYI there free, you can get them anywhere.

    JAK for the inspiration

  3. Hi I and my friend also make the islamic app Tasbih Delight.
    Tasbih Delight offers you to recite tasbih anytime and anywhere. It offers the following features.

    1. Comes with a preset list of tasbihaat(praises) with their benefits and audio.
    2. You can share the tasihaat via SMS/Email. Publish it on facebook and twitter.
