Remembering Allah in the Mornings and Afternoons

Allah says;
وَاذْكُر رَّبَّكَ فِي نَفْسِكَ وَسَبِّحْ بِحَمْدِ رَبِّكَ قَبْلَ طُلُوعِ الشَّمْسِ وَقَبْلَ الْغُرُوبِ تَضَرُّعاً وَخِيفَةً وَدُونَ الْجَهْرِ مِنَ الْقَوْلِ وَإِذَا سَأَلَكَ عِبَادِي عَنِّي فَإِنِّي قَرِيبٌ أُجِيبُ دَعْوَةَ الدَّاعِ إِذَا دَعَانِ يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ ارْبَعُوا عَلَى أَنْفُسِكُمْ فَإِنَّكُمْ لَاا تَدْعُونَ أَصَمَّ وَلَاا غَايِبًا إِنَّ الَّذِي تَدْعُونَهُ سَمِيعٌ قَرِيبٌ أَقْرَبُ إِلَى أَحَدِكُمْ مِنْ عُنُقِ رَاحِلِته بِالْغُدُوِّ وَالاصَالِ وَلَا تَكُن مِّنَ الْغَافِلِينَ

in the mornings and in the afternoons, and be not of those who are neglectful.

These texts encourage the servants to invoke Allah in Dhikr often, especially in the mornings and afternoons, so that they are not among those who neglect remembering Him.

This is why Allah praised the angels who praise Him night and day without tiring,
