Assalamualaikum Dear Brothers & Sisters,

Do you feel you can’t remember Allah properly and your dhikr is empty, almost robotic. How much have you complained just today and all the days before? About little things; the food, tasks, family, money. You realize you are struggling to be grateful?
You enter prayer and leave it without feeling much difference? You try for tears to roll down your cheeks when reading certain ayaat from the Quran, but they don’t? Did the soul-shaking reality hit you that you are not remembering, giving thanks nor worshipping Allah in the way you hoped to?

There is a 5 second sunnah for you to revive which can solve all above.
The Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) took Mu’aadh ibn Jabal by the hand and said:“O Mu‘aadh, by Allah verily I love you, by Allah verily I love you.” Then he said: “I urge you, O Mu‘aadh, never to stop saying at the end of every prayer:”
اللَّهُمَّ أَعِنِّي عَلَى ذِكْرِكَ وَشُكْرِكَ، وَحُسْنِ عِبَادَتِكَ
Allaahumma a‘innee ‘alaa dhikrika wa shukrika wa husni ‘ibaadatika (O Allah, help me to remember You, give You thanks and to worship You in the best of manners).” [Saheeh Abi Dawood]

Action points: 
-Say this dua’ at the end of each prayer -after the final tashahud and before the salaam-
-Say it from the heart
-Make it a life-long habit from now onwards
-Use a note on the wall where you pray to remind yourself
-Teach others and make this an ongoing charity (sadaqah jaariyah) for you by Allah’s will!

The Amazing Effects:
-Get rewarded for reviving the sunnah
-Get Allah’s help in your: Dhikr (remembrance of Him), shukr (gratefulness) and ibaadah (acts of worship), inshaa’Allah.

What is meant by “at the end of the prayer (dibr as-salaah)” here is in the last part of the prayer before the salaam, because dibr ash-shay’ (lit. the end of a thing) is part of it.
Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allah have mercy on him) said in Zaad al-Ma‘aad (1/294): “At the end of the prayer” may be understood as meaning before the salaam or after it. Ibn Taymiyah regarded it as more likely that it is before the salaam. I asked him about that and he said: Dibr kulli shay’ (the end of everything) is part of it, like the dibr (rear end) of an animal. End quote.

Praying you will benefit,

May Allah grant us the understanding of the Deen and give sincerity in our words and action. Aameen Ya Rabb!
