There are two methods of Dhikr, Dhikr Jahr and Dhikr Khafi
Known as loud Dhikr, vocal, reciting the ism dhaath of allah (swt).
Dhikr-e-Khafi (the Secret Dhikr) which cannot be discerned by the Kiram an-Katibin is seventy times superior to other types.
On the Day of Judgement, mankind will be called to reckoning by Him and the Kiram an-Katibin directed to produce the Register of Conduct of every person.
These Angels will be commanded to re-examine the records to see if any of their good deeds remained unrecorded.
They would submit that everything within their reach had been duly put down. Allah shall then inform them that a good deed which they could not discern and hence were unable to record was Dhikr-e Qalbi.
I, the narrator, assert that Dhikr-e Qalbi neither snaps, nor is liable to any interruption.
Tafsir-e-Mazhari vol: III, p:41:1.
Dhikr Khafi also known as a “time saver”, it can be done anywhere, doesn’t need a required location or environment like the loud Dhikr because it is hidden. It can be virtually done anywhere, Walking, standing, lying, driving even whilst talking.
Remember Dhikr is the tool to clean the heart, individual become confused between cleaning and purifying.
Cleaning is the process by which one does Dhikr of allah (swt) and sinsere repentance, where the heart once cleansed shines again. Once the heart sparkles its starts to recognise Allah (Swt) noor once again.
Allah Most High says:
“He who is hostile to a friend of Mine I declare war against. My slave approaches Me with nothing more beloved to Me than what I have made obligatory upon him, and My slave keeps drawing nearer to Me with voluntary works until I love him. And when I love him, I am his hearing with which he hears, his sight with which he sees, his hand with which he seizes, and his foot with which he walks. If he asks me, I will surely give to him, and if he seeks refuge in Me, I will surely protect him”
(Fath al-Bari, 11.340 41, hadith 6502)
