Is there a specific number of dhikr for Allahu Zülcelal?

We all know from our normal lives that some expressions of gratitude cannot be satisfied by saying them once, three times, or even thirty times. The difficulties we experience regarding what Allah Almighty decrees or created things are also in the hands of our Lord to eliminate our needs.

Expressing a request to our Lord by stating it in terms of the numbers of His names and repeating it this many times is like a password for our request, so to speak. These passwords, these keys are in the Qur'an! Different methods that were used while interpreting the verses containing the 99 names of Allah in the Qur'an by the commentators are being reviewed.

These methods that were revised within the understanding of the Ahl al-Sunnah were accepted by all the great scholars and there was no objection to stating them in different numbers. These traditions are determined by the scholars' statements according to the needs of each period by bringing together examples from the Prophet's tradition, the lives of the Companions, and studies on all subsequent verses and hadiths.
