What is the source of the given dhikrs and how are the numbers of repetitions determined?

Everything that Allah Zülcelal has created has been created with his manifestation. He manifests himself to matter, says "be," and it becomes. The process of creation, the ability to bring something into existence from nothing, has been explained along with his holy names.

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) explained to his companions that the blessed names of Allah mentioned in the Qur'an are in fact His own names, and that the rewards that result from reciting each of them are separate blessings that can be obtained in different times and for different things. He himself used these names in his prayers and encouraged others to do the same.

One day, Hz. Fatima (may Allah be pleased with her) requested help from the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), and he advised her to recite "Subhanallah" 33 times, "Alhamdulillah" 33 times, and "Allahu Akbar" 33 times after each prayer. He explained that reciting these names with their specific numbers would bring about immense benefits.

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) recommended different dhikrs and numbers of recitations to Hz. Ali, Hz. Abu Bakr, Hz. Umar, Hz. Uthman, and many other companions for different purposes.

The numbers of recitations for the names of Allah and other dhikrs that we have shared with you in our dhikr application are based on the Prophet Muhammad's (peace be upon him) Sunnah and the contributions of other scholars.

All the scholars and saints who came after the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) invoked Allah with these names and their respective numbers whenever they asked for something from Him. They reported positive results when they used these names with different numbers.

Each matter has its own frequency, which is directly related to its creation. When we ask Allah for something, we can invoke His frequency by knowing the frequency of the matter we are asking for. By using these numbers, we express our gratitude to Allah.

Reciting these dhikrs serves as a key and is a way to show gratitude in proportion to the blessings we have received. The more we remember Allah Zülcelal, the more we realize that it is still not enough.
