The dua for remembrance in the morning and evening is the best of spending one's time and the easiest way of being the recipient of bounties limitless and unbridled. Tasbih, Dhikr or remembrance of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى) is one of the best forms of worship. The remembrance of the Almighty has been emphasized in the Quran and Ahadith countless times, and one can only imagine the rewards of undertaking an act so simple yet so heavy in providing benefits to the believer.
There are countless duas recited by the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) in the morning and evening for remembering Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى), and each and everyone carries only blessings for the believer. Most of these duas are listed below. You may recite any of these duas to benefit from Allah's blessings as you start and end your day.
One dua for remembering Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى) is reciting the Ayat ul-Kursi which highlights the unparalleled attributes of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى) (Vol. 5, Book 42, Hadith 2884). Another dua, Asbahnaa wa 'asbahal-mulku, recited in the morning and evening, has been termed to wipe away one's sins and enter a believer into paradise by the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) (Sunan Abi Dawud 5070). In the hadith (Vol. 5, Book 44, Hadith 3103), a dua has been mentioned that has great blessings in times of hardships and difficulties. In another Hadith, the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) has mentioned that by reciting the dua for remembrance, also stated in the hadith, in the evening, it'll be incumbent upon Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى) to please him (Jami` at-Tirmidhi 3389 ).
Morning & Evening
'A 'oothu billaahi minash-Shaytaanir-rajeem. Allaahu laa 'ilaaha 'illaa Huwal-Hayyul-Qayyoom, laa ta'khuthuhu sinatun wa laa nawm, lahu maa fis-samaawaati wa maa fil-'ardh, man thai-lathee yashfa'u 'indahu 'illaa bi'ithnih, ya'lamu maa bayna 'aydeehim wa maa khalfahum, wa laa yuheetoona bishay'im-min 'ilmihi 'illaa bimaa shaa'a, wasi'a kursiyyuhus samaawaati wal'ardh, wa laa ya'ooduhu hifdhuhumaa, wa Huwal- 'Aliyyul- 'Adheem.
I seek refuge in Allah from Satan the outcast. - Allah! There is none worthy of worship but He, the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists. Neither slumber nor sleep overtakes Him. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. Who is he that can intercede with Him except with His Permission? He knows what happens to them in this world, and what will happen to them in the Hereafter. And they will never encompass anything of His Knowledge except that which He wills. His Throne extends over the heavens and the earth, and He feels no fatigue in guarding and preserving them. And He is the Most High, the Most Great.(Whoever says this when he rises in the morning will be protected from jinns until he retires in the evening, and whoever says it when retiring in the evening will be protected from them until he rises in the morning.)
