    Salaam, how would I increase my imaan and get closer to allah because I still feel a great distance and what are some special deeds I can do after prayer, fasting and reading Quran?

    Delving very deeply into Quran by slowing down to snail's pace and zooming in as soon as you come across a verse or set of verses which you don't understand at all, corellating it with other knowledge that you possess, and then going on the net and searching to see the opinions of others more knowledgeable if still curious.

    When reading the Quran - humbly acknowledging that it is from a boundless Source of Wisdom which we can never fully encompass even if we spend your our whole lives pondering.

    i've found that making the following prayer with meaning in mind almost always opens the mind on another level.
    :

    Rabbee sh-shrahlee suadree, wa yassirlee amree, whahlul uqda tan min lisaanee, yafqahoo qawlee.
    Rabbee zid nee 'ilma
    Rabbee zid nee hikma
    Allaahumma innee as-alu ka ilman naafi'a, wa fahman kaamila, wa rizqan waa si'a, wa shifaa-an min kulli daa.
    Rabbee yassir
    Wa laa tu'assir
    Wa tammim 'alainaa bi al khayr
    Wa bi ka nasta'eenu Yaa Musta'aan.

    Engaging in Dhikr (Remembrance of Allah)

    When the signs of the Gracious Allah are recited unto them, they fall down, prostrating themselves before Allah weeping.(19:59)

    Increasing iman by remembering Allah:

    Iman comes from the heart. Therefore the best way of increasing our iman is to give the heart what it needs at all times. So what does our heart need? What does it crave for? What is the food of the heart? It is the remembrance of Allah:

    "…Verily, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest." (13:28)

    Surely then if we want our iman to be high at all times then we must try our best to remember Allah at all times. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) used to make remembrance of Allah at all times and also encouraged us to do the same. When a man complained, "The laws of Islam are too heavy for me, so tell me something that I can easily follow," the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) told him, "Let your tongue be always busy with the remembrance of Allah." (Ahmad).


    Hearts of those who remember Allah :

    Abu Musa Al-Ash`ari (Ra) reported: The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, "The similitude of one who remembers his Lord and one who does not remember Him, is like that of the living and the dead.'' [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

    Remembering Allah through acts of dhikr brings much peace and tranquility to the heart. It also gives us a sense of taqwa (fear of allah), a consciousness that makes us realise that Allah Almighty is ever near and watching us at all times and that we should always strive to please Him and refrain from anything which angers and displeases him.

    Remembering Allah night & day:

    O ye who believe, remember Allah much. And glorify Him morning and evening (33:42-43)

    The more we remember Allah the more our hearts and souls will be kept well fed and illuminated with iman, peace and tranquility.

    Therefore the following are 10 short Dhikr we can recite everyday. One can recite each 100 times which makes a total of 1000 Dhikr a day minimum as a target:


    1) Subhaanallah
    2) Alhamdulillah
    3) Allahu Akbar
    4) Laa ilaaha illallah,
    5) La hawla Wala Quwwata Illah Billah-Hil Aliyyil Adheem,

    6) Asthaghfirullah-halladhee Laa ilaaha illa-huwal Hayyul Qayyuumu Wa athoobu Ilay, Short version: Asthaghfirullah

    7) SUB-HAAN'ALLAAHi WA BI-HAM'DIHI SUB-HAAN'ALLAH-IL ADHEEM
    Short version: SUB-HAAN'ALLAAHi WA BI-HAM'DIHI

    8) Subhāna-llāhi, wa-l-hamdu li-llāhi, wa lā ilāha illā-llāhu, wa-llāhu akbar. Wa lā hawla wa lā quwwata illā bi-llāhi-l-aliyyi-l-azīm

    9) Lā ilāha illā-llāhu waḥdahu lā sharīka lahu lahu-l-mulku wa lahu-l-ḥamdu yuhyi wa yumītu wa huwa ḥayyu-llā yamūtu abadan abada, ḏū-l-jalāli wa-l-ikrām, biyadihi-l-khayr, wa huwa alā kulli Shay-in qadīr

    Short version: Laa ilaaha illal-laahu wahdahu laa shareeka lahu, lahul-mulku
    wa lahul-hamdu wa huwa ‘alaa kulli shay-in qadeer

    10) Subhan Allahi wa bi hamdihi `adada khalqihi wa rida nafsihi wa zinata `arshihi wa midada kalimatihi

    Do so much Dhikr that people think you are insane:

    The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Engage in the Dhikr of Allah in such abundance that people comment that ‘you are insane’.” (Ahmed)

    Utter regret for each second wasted without remembering Allah:

    Mu`adh Ibn Jabal (RA) said that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: "The People of Paradise will not regret anything except one thing alone: the hour that passed them by in which they made no remembrance of Allah." (Bayhaqi in Shu`ab al-iman (1:392 #512-513))

    Dhikr done in places where others don't remember Allah:

    Remember:in a place where people are oblivious to dhikir, the remembrance of Allah is like being steadfast in jihad, when others are running away. (Targhib, p. 193, vol. 3 ref. Bazar and Tibrani)

    Dhikr can be done anywhere and anytime:

    "Celebrate God's praises, standing, sitting down, or lying on your sides." (Qur'an;Nisaa:103).

    During night or day, on firm ground or on in the sea, on a trip or at home, in wealth or poverty, in sickness or in health, in secret or announced, in all situations.

    SO the more we remember Allah the more our Iman will increase each and everyday and the more our hearts and souls will be illuminated in peace and tranquility!
