لَقَدْ مَنَّ اللّٰهُ عَلَى الْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ اِذْ بَعَثَ فِيْهِمْ رَسُوْلًا مِّنْ اَنْفُسِهِمْ يَتْلُوْا عَلَيْهِمْ اٰيٰتِهٖ وَيُزَكِّيْهِمْ وَيُعَلِّمُهُمُ الْكِتٰبَ وَالْحِكْمَةَۚ وَاِنْ كَانُوْا مِنْ قَبْلُ لَفِيْ ضَلٰلٍ مُّبِيْنٍ – ١٦٤
“Indeed, Allah has given bounties to believers when (Allah) sent a Messenger (Muhammad) among them from among themselves, who recited to them His verses, purified their (souls), and taught them. their Kitab (Al-Qur’an) and Wisdom (Sunnah), although before that, they were actually in a real heresy.” (QS 3:164)

“O you who believe! Remember Allah, by remembering (His name) as much as possible, and praise Him in the morning and evening. It is He who gives mercy to you and His angels (asking forgiveness for you) so that He will bring you out of darkness into light (the light). And He is Most Merciful to those who believe.” (QS 33: 41-43)

“And do not do damage on the earth after it was (created) well. Pray to Him with fear and hope. Indeed, Allah’s grace is very close to those who do good.” (QS 7:56)

You can even recite from the Quran verses to protect yourself from djinn during your Dhikr in the morning.
يٰٓاَيُّهَا الَّذِيْنَ اٰمَنُوْٓا اِذَا لَقِيْتُمْ فِئَةً فَاثْبُتُوْا وَاذْكُرُوا اللّٰهَ كَثِيْرًا لَّعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُوْنَۚ – ٤٥
“O you who believe! When you meet the troops (enemies), then be determined and say (the name) of Allah a lot (dhikr and pray) so that you will be lucky.” (QS 8:45)
