Answer:

 

Best dhikr remembrance of Allah

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 33 Surah Ahzaab verses 41-42:

41 O ye who believe! Celebrate the Dhikr (Remembrance) of Allah and do this (as) much (as possible);

42 And glorify Him morning and evening.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 29 Surah Ankabut verse 45:

45 Recite what is sent of the Book (Al-Quran) by inspiration to thee and establish regular prayer, for prayer restrains from shameful and unjust deeds; and the Dhikr (Remembrance) of Allah is the greatest (thing in life) without doubt. And Allah Knows all that ye do.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 13 Surah Raad vers 28:

28 Those who believe, their hearts find satisfaction in the Dhikr of Allah: for without doubt, (only) in the Dhikr of Allah do hearts find satisfaction!

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 152:

152 Then do ye remember Me; I will remember you. Be grateful to Me and reject not faith.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 43 Surah Zukhruf verse 36:

36 If anyone withdraws himself from Dhikr of (Allah) Most Gracious, We appoint for him a Shaytaan to be an intimate companion to him!

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 63 Surah Munafiqoon verse 9:

9 O ye who believe! Let not your wealth or your children divert you from the Dhikr of Allah. If any act thus, the (severe) loss is their own!

 

 

Hadrat Said ibn Jubair (r.a.) reported that the Messenger of Allah (saws) said: "Anyone engaged in obeying Allah is in fact engaged in the Dhikr (Remembrance) of Allah."

 

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 9.502 Narrated by Abu Huraira

The Prophet (saws) said, "Allah, The High and Exalted, Says: 'I am just as My slave thinks I am, and I am with him if He remembers Me. If he remembers Me in himself, I too, remember him in Myself; and if he remembers Me in a group of people, I remember him in a group that is better than they (the Angels); and if he comes one span nearer to Me, I go one cubit nearer to him; and if he comes one cubit nearer to Me, I go a distance of two outstretched arms nearer to him; and if he comes to Me walking, I go to him running!'"

 

Hadrat Abu Sa'id Al-Khudri (r.a.) and Hadrat Abu Hurairah (r.a.) reported that the Prophet (saws) "When any group of men do Dhikr (Remembrance) of Allah, the Angels surround them and mercy covers them, tranquility descends upon them, and Allah mentions them to those who are with Him (the Angels)."

 

The Prophet (saws) said, "The devotees have surpassed all." The companions asked, "Who are these exceptional people (Mufarridoon), O Messenger of Allah (saws)?" The Prophet (saws) replied, "Those men and women who remember Allah unceasingly."

A man came to the Messenger of Allah (saws) and complained, "The laws of Islam are too heavy for me, so tell me something that I can easily follow". The Prophet (saws) told him, "Let your tongue be always busy with the Remembrance of Allah."

 

The Prophet (saws) would often tell his companions, "Shall I tell you about the best of deeds, the most pure in the Sight of your Lord, about the one that is of the highest rank and is far better for you than spending gold and silver, even better for you than meeting your enemies in the battlefield where you strike at their necks and they at yours?" The companions replied, "Yes, O Messenger of Allah (saws)!" The Prophet (saws) said, "The Dhikr (Remembrance) of Allah.''

Hadrat Mu'adh (r.a.) reported that the Prophet (saws) said, 'No other act of man is a more effective means for his deliverance from the Chastisement of Allah than the Remembrance of Allah.''

Related by Ahmad.

 

Ahmad reports that the Prophet (saws) said, "Whatever you say in the Celebration of Allah's Glory, Majesty, and Oneness, and all your words of Praise for Him gather around the Majestic Throne of Allah. These words resound like the buzzing of bees, and call attention to the person who uttered them to Allah. Don't you wish to have someone there in the presence of Allah who would call attention to you?"

 

Your Question: Brother I want to know the best "Zikr of Allaah"  tht we can easily do in all dayz...
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 29 Surah Ankabut verse 45:

45 Recite what is sent of the Book (Al-Quran) by inspiration to thee and establish regular prayer, for prayer restrains from shameful and unjust deeds; and the Dhikr (Remembrance) of Allah is the greatest (thing in life) without doubt. And Allah Knows all that ye do.

 

 

The biggest form of Dhikr or bringing Allah Subhanah to Remembrance are obviously prayers and the recitation of the Glorious Quran.and each and every deed or act one does in the obedience of the Laws of the Lord Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

 

There are literally innumerable words and phrases taught by Allah and His Messenger (saws) which one can say in the Remembrance of their Lord Most Majestic, Most Supreme, but if one were to choose the very best phrase amongst them, it would have to be:

 

The Messenger of Allah (saws) said: "The best worship is that of the Day of Arafah, and the best thing that I (saws) and other Prophets before me have said is: 'La ilaha illallahu wahdahu la sharika lahu, lahul mulk, wa lahul hamd, wa huwa 'ala kuli sha'in qadeer. (There is no god except Allah Alone, He has no partner, to Him Alone belongs the Dominion, to Him Alone belongs All Praise, and He Alone Has Absolute Power over everything"'

 

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 8.412 Narrated by Abu Huraira

Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "Whoever says: 'La ilaha illal-lah wahdahu la sharika lahu, lahu-l-mulk wa lahu-l-hamd wa huwa 'ala kulli shai'in qadir' one hundred times will get the same reward as given for manumitting ten slaves; and one hundred good deeds will be written in his account, and one hundred sins will be deducted from his account, and it (his saying) will be a shield for him from the Shaytaan on that day till night, and nobody will be able to do a better deed except the one who declares it more than he."

 

Other than the Tahleel (Laa ilaaha illalaah or there is no god but Allah), Tasbeeh (Subhan-Allah or Glory to Allah), Tahmeed (Alhamdolillah or Praise be to Allah), and Takbeer (Allah-o-Akbar or Allah is the Greatest), another phrase of Dhkir or Remembrance highly recommended and constantly made by the Messenger of Allah (saws) himself is:

 

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 8.415 Narrated by Abu Hurairah

The Prophet (saws) said, "There are two expressions which are very easy for the tongue to say, but they are very heavy in the Scales (with Allah Subhanah) and are very dear to The Lord Most Beneficent; and they are, 'Subhan Allah Al-'Azim and 'Subhan Allah wa bihamdihi.' (Glory be to the Lord Most Magnificent, Glory be to the Lord and all Praise to Him).

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
