Intentions for Prescribed Dhikr

Prescribed dhikr should not be done carelessly, just for the sake of it (even though dhikr does have an effect, no matter how inattentively it is done).

The intention some people have for doing dhikr is a desire to attain higher prescriptions of dhikr from their shaykh, while some do dhikr just because others do.

Your intention should be: “I am doing this special form of dhikr so that it will help me in my goal to purify my inner self and reach Allah ta’ala."
