The following rules should be observed when making Thikrullah: 
  1. The place where the Thaakir wishes to engage in Thikr needs to be free of things which will distract his attention.

  2. The Thaakir should be sincere and humble when making Thikr.

  3. He should clean his mouth thoroughly before making Thikr.

  4. The place which he chooses to sit in should be clean and Taahir.

  5. Thikr should be made while facing the Qiblah.

  6. He should be imbued with the qualities of khushoo and khudoo (peace and composure).

  7. He should be aware of the meaning of the words which he utters during Thikrullah.

  8. He should not be hasty when making Thikr.

  9. When making Thikr, the Thaakir should at least be able to hear what he says under his breath. The mere thinking of the words or reading them in the mind will not render the Thikr valid.

  10. The recitation of the Qur’an is the most excellent form of Thikr.

  11. Thikrullah is not confined to verbal devotions only. Any physical form of Ibaadah is also regarded as Thikrullah, such as Salaah etc.

  12. When a person endeavours to recite all the duas which Rasulullah Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam recited on various occasions, he will be categorised under those who remember Allah abundantly (as is mentioned in the Holy Qur’an).

  13. When adopting any form of Thikr on a regular, daily basis, the Thaakir should ensure constancy. Doing it for a number of days, then leaving it could prove to be detrimental.
