Using a zikr counter

Q: Alhamdulillah I use a counter to make zikr. Generally I meet alot of people of different races, cultures, etc. All of them ask the same question. "What's the counter for?" Could you please advise me what to tell them. Something that'll be simple but InshaAllah a means of hidayaat for them. Something that'll attract them to Islam and create that love for Allah Ta'ala. 

A: The purpose of life is to remember Allah and serve Him. So this is a means to remember your actual goal.

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