Let's Practice Zikr.

Life is full of challenges. No matter where we go, it is inevitable. Even if you attempt to choose to escape to other path of life, there are always challenges. Just the degrees vary. Still, those challenges have made human wiser and develop. Those tests have made human resourceful in their survival through ages. Yet, not all will pass every tests in life. 

Some might fall down and try to stand up.
Some might fall down, and never go up. 
And Some might fall the other down, so they will get up.

The common thing is, they all might fall down. Just the next question is, what will they do next?

Sometimes, we wonder why I can't be like him? Why I can't be like her? Or why can never I surpass his or her grades?

In examination for example, 
after all efforts we have done, with lots of time we have sacrificed, with extra attentions we have given in classes, and with perfect answers we have written in the exam sheets..... But after all, we still didn't get what we expected. It's like the world is never fair. Why me? Why not other people? Why? Why? And we blame either other people or at the very last to the fate. Then, we often unconsciously blame the God. 

Indeed, we all have experienced this moment. Or maybe are experiencing, or will experience it.
But with tones of problems accumulated on us, we depend on ourselves solely. We think we, ourselves are the right one to rely to. Because we know everything about us, we know this is our life, and we know we are going to decide it.

But, we forget that there is a higher Force above us. The one who will listen anything to us, nights and days. Allah the Almighty God. 

We never can live alone... "Till we start depending on the one who never dies" -mathlutfi90

In a hadith recored by al-Bukhari and Muslim,

 قَالَ صلّى الله عليه وسلّم: (( أَلَا أُحَدِّثُكُمْ إِنْ أَخَذْتُمْ أَدْرَكْتُمْ مَنْ سَبَقَكُمْ، وَلَمْ يُدْرِكْكُمْ أَحَدٌ بَعْدَكُمْ، وَكُنْتُمْ خَيْرَ مَنْ أَنْتُمْ بَيْنَ ظَهْرَانَيْهِ إِلَّا مَنْ عَمِلَ مِثْلَهُ !؟تُسَبِّحُونَ وَتَحْمَدُونَ وَتُكَبِّرُونَ خَلْفَ كُلِّ صَلَاةٍ ثَلَاثًا وَثَلَاثِينَ )) 
" Should I not inform you of a matter upon which if you acted, you would catch up with those who have surpassed you? No one would be able to overtake you and you would be better than those amongst whom you live except those who do the same. Say tasbih, tahmid and takbir 33 times each following every obligatory prayer"

In performing adzkaar to Allah, Prophet Muhammad PBUH advised us to do adzkar using fingers. In a hadith recorded by Al-Tirmizi and graded by al-Albaani as authentic (sahih) :

From 'Abdullah ibn Umar r.a. who said " I saw the Prophet PBUH counting the tasbih with his hands." And he PBUH also said, "O women! Count it with your fingers for verily they will be questioned and interrogated".

In supplementary to our ceaseless efforts in achieving success, let's us practice this adzkar after each prayers. Why do we need to rush after salah? let's take a breath, spend 5 minutes to practice tahmid, tasbih and takbir to Allah. Insya Allah, may all our efforts be blessed by HIM. :)
