A dua to be recited in the morning and evening

Q: “Whoever says in the morning and in the evening Hasbi Allaah laa illaha illa huwa ‘alayhi tawwakaltu wa huwa rabb al-‘arsh il-‘azeem (Sufficient for me is Allaah, there is no God besides Him; in Him have I put my trust and He is the Lord of the mighty Throne), seven times, Allah, may He be exalted, will suffice him for what concerns him,” and it does not contain the additional phrase mentioned (“of the affairs of this world and the Hereafter”).

1. My question is whether this should be recited before or after the Fajr and Maghrib prayer or does the time just have to set in?

2. What is considered morning and evening according to Hanafi fiqh?

Bismillaah

A:

1. It can be read at any time.

2. Morning and evening is the same in all types of fiqh.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
