Where does the word dhikr come from in Islam?
Dhikr ( Arabic: ذِكرْ , IPA: [ðɪkr] ), also spelled Zikr, Thikr, Zekr, or Zikar, literally means "remembrance, reminder" or "mention, utterance". They are Islamic devotional acts, in which phrases or prayers are repeated. It can be counted on a set of prayer beads ( Misbaha مِسْبَحَة) or through the fingers of the hand.
