Reciting ‘SubhanAllah’ is more beloved to Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam than all that the sun has risen over [1*]

Reciting SubhaanAllah fills half the scales (Mizaan) on the day of Aakhirah [2*]

Whoever says just ’one’ SubhaanAllah, a date-palm tree is planted for him in Paradise [3*]

Reciting SubhaanAllah Wa Bihamdihi SubhaanAllahil Azeem are two expressions which are most Beloved to Allah, are light on the tongue, but heavy on the scales (of Qiyamah) [4*]

No person will bring any deed more virtuous on the day of Qiyamah than recitation of SubhanAllahi wa bihamdihi. [5*]

A person who recites SubhanAllahi wa bihamdihi 100 times a day, even if he has committed sins as much as the the foam of an ocean, still he will be forgiven [6*]

A person who recites SubhanAllahi wa bihamdihi 100 times a day, then, 1000 good deeds (hasanah) are written for him and 1000 (minor) sins of his are forgiven [7*]

SubhanAllahi wa bihamdihi is the Tasbeeh that Allah Ta’ala chose for His Angels. [8*]

A person who recites ‘Subhan-Allahi wa bihamdihi, `adada khalqihi, wa ridha nafsihi, wa zinata `arshihi, wa midada kalimaatihi [ I Glorify Allah with His praise, as many times as the number of His creatures, in amounting to His  Pleasure, equal to the weight of His Throne and equal to the ink used in recording the words (for His Praise)]; three times every morning outweighs all other Wazaaif/Azkaar [9*]


Reciting ‘SubhaanAllah, Wal-Hamdu-Lillah, Wa la ilaaha illAllah, wallahu Akbar’ is most beloved to Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala [10*]

Reciting 10 times Subhan Allah, 10 times Alhamdulillah and 10 times Allahu Akbar after every Fard Salaah [11*]


Reciting, SubhanAllah, Alhamdulillah and Allahu Akbar, 33 times each, after every Fard Salaah, attains lofty ranks in the Aakhirah [12*]


When a persons reads ‘SubhaanAllah, Wal-Hamdu-Lillah, Wa la ilaha ilAllah, wa Allahu Akbar’ then all his (minor) sins are shed off his body, like the leaves of a tree fall down [13*]

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، رضى الله عنه قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ “‏ لأَنْ أَقُولَ سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ وَالْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ وَلاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ وَاللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ أَحَبُّ إِلَىَّ مِمَّا طَلَعَتْ عَلَيْهِ الشَّمْسُ ‏“‏ ‏

Narrated by Abu Hurairah Radiallahu Anhu : Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said : Two are the expressions which are light on the tongue, but heavy in scale, dear to the Compassionate One:” Glory be to Allah and praise is due to Him” ;” Glory be to Allah, the Great.” ~ (Sahih Muslim)

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ ـ رضى الله عنه ـ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏ “‏ مَنْ قَالَ سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ وَبِحَمْدِهِ‏.‏ فِي يَوْمٍ مِائَةَ مَرَّةٍ حُطَّتْ خَطَايَاهُ، وَإِنْ كَانَتْ مِثْلَ زَبَدِ الْبَحْرِ ‏“‏‏.‏
Narrated by Abu Hurairah Radiallahu Anhu : Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said, “Whoever says, ‘Subhan Allah wa bihamdihi,’ one hundred times a day, will be forgiven all his sins even if they were as much as the foam of the sea.~ (Bukhari)
and, in another narration :
وعن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه قال‏:‏ قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم‏:‏ ‏ “‏من قال حين يصبح وحين يمسي‏:‏ سبحان الله وبحمده مائة مرة، لم يأتِ أحد يوم القيامة بأفضل مما جاء به، إلا أحد قال مثل ما قال أو زاد‏“‏ ‏
Narrated by Abu Hurairah Radiallahu Anhu : Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said, , “He who recites in the morning and in the evening the statement: ‘Subhaan-Allahi wa bihamdihi one hundred times, will not be surpassed on the Day of Resurrection by anyone with better deeds than one who utters the same words or utters more of these words.” ~ (Muslim)
[6*]
عَنِ ابْنِ عُمَرَ، قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ذَاتَ يَوْمٍ لأَصْحَابِهِ ‏ “‏ قُولُوا سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ وَبِحَمْدِهِ مِائَةَ مَرَّةٍ مَنْ قَالَهَا مَرَّةً كُتِبَتْ لَهُ عَشْرًا وَمَنْ قَالَهَا عَشْرًا كُتِبَتْ لَهُ مِائَةً وَمَنْ قَالَهَا مِائَةً كُتِبَتْ لَهُ أَلْفًا وَمَنْ زَادَ زَادَهُ اللَّهُ وَمَنِ اسْتَغْفَرَ غَفَرَ اللَّهُ لَهُ ‏“‏ ‏ ‏.‏
Hazrat Ibn`Umar Radiallahu Anhu narrated that one day Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said to his Companions: “Say ‘Glory is to Allah and with His Praise (Subhaan-Allahi wa bihamdihi)’ a hundred times. Whoever says [it] one time, it is written for him ten, and whoever says it ten (times), it is written for him a hundred, and whoever says it a hundred (times), it is written for him a thousand, and whoever increases, Allah will increase for him, and whoever seeks Allah’s forgiveness, [Allah] will forgive him.” ~ (Tirmidhi)
[7*]
عَنْ أَبِي ذَرٍّ، أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم سُئِلَ أَىُّ الْكَلاَمِ أَفْضَلُ قَالَ ‏ “‏ مَا اصْطَفَى اللَّهُ لِمَلاَئِكَتِهِ أَوْ لِعِبَادِهِ سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ وَبِحَمْدِهِ ‏“‏ ‏.‏
Hazrat Abu Zar Radiallahu Anhu reported that Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam was asked as to which words were the best. He said:Those for which Allah made a choice for His Angels or His servants (and the words are):” Glory be to Allah and praise is due to Him.” ~ (Sahih Muslim)
[8*]
وعن أم المؤمنيين جويرية بنت الحارث رضي الله عنها أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم خرج من عندها بكرة حين صلى الصبح وهي في مسجدها، ثم رجع بعد أن أضحي وهي جالسة، فقال‏:‏ ‏”‏مازلت على الحالة التي فارقت عليها‏؟‏‏“‏ قالت‏:‏ نعم، فقال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم‏:‏ ‏”‏لقد كنت بعدك أربع كلمات ثلاث مرات، لو وزنت بما قلت منذ اليوم لوزنتهن‏:‏ سبحان الله وبحمده عدد خلقه، ورضا نفسه، وزنة عرشه، ومداد كلماته‏“‏‏
Hazrat Juwairiyah bint Al-Harith Radiallahu Anha, the Mother of the Believers, reported: Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam came out from my apartment in the morning, when he had performed Fajr, whilst I was on my musallah. He came back in the forenoon and found me still sitting there. Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said, “Are you still in the same position as I left you.” I replied in the affirmative. Thereupon the Prophet said, “I recited four words three times after I had left you. If these are to be weighed against all what you have recited since morning, these will be heavier. These are: (Subhan-Allahi wa bihamdihi, `adada khalqihi, wa rida nafsihi, wa zinata `arshihi, wa midada kalimatihi )…Glorify Allah with His praise, as many times as the number of His creatures, in accordance with His Good Pleasure, equal to the weight of His Throne and equal to the ink that may be used in recording the words for His Praise)].” ~ (Muslim)
[9*]
وَعَنْ سَمُرَةَ بْنِ جُنْدُبٍ ‏رضى الله عنه ‏قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اَللَّهِ ‏صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏-{ أَحَبُّ اَلْكَلَامِ إِلَى اَللَّهِ أَرْبَعٌ, لَا يَضُرُّكَ بِأَيِّهِنَّ بَدَأْتَ: سُبْحَانَ اَللَّهِ, وَالْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ, وَلَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اَللَّهُ, وَاَللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ } .‏
Hazrat Samurah bin Jundub Radiallahu Anhu narrated that Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said: “The words dearer to Allah are four: ‘SubhaanAllah, Alhumdulilah, Laa ilaaha ilallah , Allahu Akbar. It does not matter which you say first.” ~ (Muslim)
[10*]
عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ عَمْرٍو، رضى الله عنهما قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏“‏ خَلَّتَانِ لاَ يُحْصِيهِمَا رَجُلٌ مُسْلِمٌ إِلاَّ دَخَلَ الْجَنَّةَ أَلاَ وَهُمَا يَسِيرٌ وَمَنْ يَعْمَلُ بِهِمَا قَلِيلٌ يُسَبِّحُ اللَّهَ فِي دُبُرِ كُلِّ صَلاَةٍ عَشْرًا وَيَحْمَدُهُ عَشْرًا وَيُكَبِّرُهُ عَشْرًا ‏“‏ ‏.‏ قَالَ فَأَنَا رَأَيْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَعْقِدُهَا بِيَدِهِ قَالَ ‏“‏ فَتِلْكَ خَمْسُونَ وَمِائَةٌ بِاللِّسَانِ وَأَلْفٌ وَخَمْسُمِائَةٍ فِي الْمِيزَانِ وَإِذَا أَخَذْتَ مَضْجَعَكَ تُسَبِّحُهُ وَتُكَبِّرُهُ وَتَحْمَدُهُ مِائَةً فَتِلْكَ مِائَةٌ بِاللِّسَانِ وَأَلْفٌ فِي الْمِيزَانِ فَأَيُّكُمْ يَعْمَلُ فِي الْيَوْمِ وَاللَّيْلَةِ أَلْفَيْنِ وَخَمْسَمِائَةِ سَيِّئَةٍ ‏“‏ ‏.‏ قَالُوا وَكَيْفَ لاَ يُحْصِيهَا قَالَ ‏“‏ يَأْتِي أَحَدَكُمُ الشَّيْطَانُ وَهُوَ فِي صَلاَتِهِ فَيَقُولُ اذْكُرْ كَذَا اذْكُرْ كَذَا ‏.‏ حَتَّى يَنْفَتِلَ فَلَعَلَّهُ أَنْ لاَ يَفْعَلَ وَيَأْتِيهِ وَهُوَ فِي مَضْجَعِهِ فَلاَ يَزَالُ يُنَوِّمُهُ حَتَّى يَنَامَ ‏“‏
Hazrat Abdullah bin `Amr Radiallahu Anhu said: Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said: ‘There are two characteristics which a Muslim person acquires, that he enters Paradise. And indeed, they are easy, but those who act upon them are few: He glorifies Allah at the end of every prayer ten times (saying SubhaanAllah) and praises Him ten times saying (Alhumdulilah) and extols His greatness ten times (saying Allah Hu Akbar).’”He said: “And I have seen Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam counting them with his hand. He said: ‘So this is one hundred and fifty with the tongue, and one thousand and five hundred on the Scale. When you go to bed, you glorify Him, extol His greatness, and praise Him a hundred times, so this is one hundred with the tongue and one thousand on the Scale. Which of you perform two thousand and five hundred evil deeds in a single day and night?’ They said: ‘How could we not guard over them?’ He said: ‘Shaitan comes to one of you when he is in his Salat and says: “Remember such and such, remember such and such” until he turns (after completing salaah) and perhaps he will then not do it. And he comes to him when he is lying down and makes him sleepy until he falls asleep (without reading it).’” ~ (Tirmidhi)
[11*]
عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ رضي الله عنه : أَنَّ فُقَرَاءَ الْمُسْلِمِينَ أَتَوْا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَقَالُوا : يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ , قَدْ ذَهَبَ أَهْلُ الدُّثُورِ بِالدَّرَجَاتِ الْعُلَى وَالنَّعِيمِ الْمُقِيمِ . قَالَ : وَمَا ذَاكَ ؟ قَالُوا : يُصَلُّونَ كَمَا نُصَلِّي , وَيَصُومُونَ كَمَا نَصُومُ , وَيَتَصَدَّقُونَ وَلا نَتَصَدَّقُ ، وَيُعْتِقُونَ وَلا نُعْتِقُ . فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم : أَفَلا أُعَلِّمُكُمْ شَيْئًا تُدْرِكُونَ بِهِ مَنْ سَبَقَكُمْ , وَتَسْبِقُونَ مَنْ بَعْدَكُمْ ، وَلا يَكُونُ أَحَدٌ أَفْضَلَ مِنْكُمْ , إلاَّ مَنْ صَنَعَ مِثْلَ مَا صَنَعْتُمْ ؟ قَالُوا : بَلَى , يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ . قَالَ : تُسَبِّحُونَ وَتُكَبِّرُونَ وَتَحْمَدُونَ دُبُرَ كُلِّ صَلاةٍ : ثَلاثاً وَثَلاثِينَ مَرَّةً . قَالَ أَبُو صَالِحٍ : فَرَجَعَ فُقَرَاءُ الْمُهَاجِرِينَ , فَقَالُوا : سَمِعَ إخْوَانُنَا أَهْلُ الأَمْوَالِ بِمَا فَعَلْنَا , فَفَعَلُوا مِثْلَهُ . فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم : ذَلِكَ فَضْلُ اللَّهِ يُؤْتِيهِ مَنْ يَشَاءُ
Hazrat Abu Hurairah Radiallahu Anhu reported: Some of the poor Emigrants came to Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam and said to him, “The wealthy have obtained all high ranks and everlasting bliss.” He asked, “How is that?” They replied: “They offer Salat as we do, and observe Saum (fasting) as we do, but they give in Sadaqah (charity) and we do not, and they emancipate slaves and we cannot.” Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said, “Shall I not teach you something whereby you will catch up with those who have preceded you and will get ahead of those who follow you, and no one will surpass you unless he does the same as you do?” They said, “Surely, O Messenger of Allah.” He said, “Say: SubhaanAllah, Allahu Akbar, and Alhamdulillah, thirty-three times at the end of every Salat.” They returned to him and said: “Our brothers, the possessors of wealth, having heard what we are doing, have started doing the same.” Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said, “This is Grace of Allah which He gives to whom He wishes.“ ~ (Al- Bukhari and Muslim)
[12*]
عَنْ أَنَسٍ، أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم مَرَّ بِشَجَرَةٍ يَابِسَةِ الْوَرَقِ فَضَرَبَهَا بِعَصَاهُ فَتَنَاثَرَ الْوَرَقُ فَقَالَ ‏ “‏ إِنَّ الْحَمْدَ لِلَّهِ وَسُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ وَلاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ وَاللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ لَتُسَاقِطُ مِنْ ذُنُوبِ الْعَبْدِ كَمَا تَسَاقَطَ وَرَقُ هَذِهِ الشَّجَرَةِ ‏“‏ ‏.‏
Hazrat Anas bin Malik Radiallahu Anhu narrated that: Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam passed by a tree with dry leaves, so he struck it with his staff, making the leaves fall. Then he said: (Al-Ḥamdulillāhh)’ ‘glory to Allah, (Subḥān Allāh)’ ‘none has the right to be worshipped by Allah, (Lā Ilāha Illallāh)’ and (Allāhu Akbar)’ cause the sins to fall from the worshipper, just as the leaves of this tree fall.” ~ (Tirmidhi)

وَالذَّاكِرِينَ اللَّهَ كَثِيرًا وَالذَّاكِرَاتِ


… and the men who remember Allah often and the women who do so ~ Surah Al Ahzaab 33:35

Making Shukr to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala

When somebody is kind to you and bestows favours upon you, then it is common courtesy that you should thank the person. When you thank the person, he becomes happy and waits for another chance to bestow some other favour upon you, because he sees that you have appreciated the gift he has given you.

Similarly, Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala, who is the true Bestower of favours, when we thank HIM for the innumerable favours that He has bestowed upon us, HE becomes happy.
The Quraan explains that if you show gratitude to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala, He will become pleased with you, and He will increase you in the Ni’mat’s (bounties) ….

ۗ وَإِن تَشْكُرُوا يَرْضَهُ لَكُمْ

And if you are grateful, He is pleased therewith for you ~ Surah Az Zumar 39:7

and …

ۖ لَئِن شَكَرْتُمْ لَأَزِيدَنَّكُمْ

‘If you are grateful, I will surely increase you [in favor] ~ Surah Ibraheem 14:7

These are two great benefits of making Shukr to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala :

• Allah becomes happy
• Allah will increase you in the Ni’mats He has given you

We should therefore make immense Shukr when Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala choses us to sit in gatherings of Zikr, wherein we rekindle our Imaan. We are given the Taufeeq (ability) and opportunity to take the name of Allah, or at least hear the name of Allah been taken. What a great Ni’mat (bounty) this is!

Moulana Rumi RA mentioned a story of a man who was deceived by Shaytaan. After so many years of making Zikrullah and taking the name of Allah, saying “Allah Allah Allah” … Shaytaan told him, “No response has come from Allah? Allah has not told you “Labbayk” after all this time? Did you hear any answer from Allah? “ …

The man then said : “Yes, i have been saying Allah Allah Allah and not once has Allah said Labbayk … Oh my servant I am present! What is it that you require?” … So he stopped making the Zikr of Allah … He was immediately admonished. He saw a dream in which he was shown that he had indeed been answered by Allah all the time …The fact that he was able to take the name of Allah a second time, a third time, a fourth time, a fifth time and several times after, was a clear indication that Allah had accepted the previous Zikr that he had made.

So the fact that we get Taufeeq of sitting again and again in gatherings of Zikr, is a sign (Insha`Allah) that Allah has accepted the previous gathering of  Zikr. May Allah give us the Taufeeq of making Zikr right till we leave this world.

A Hadith states :

Hazrat Abdullah Bin Bisr RA narrated that a villager came to the Holy Court of Rasulullah Sallallaahu Alaihi wa Sallam and asked, “Which man is the best?” Rasulullah Sallallaahu Alaihi wa Sallam said, “It is the good-fortune of that person whose life is long and his deeds are good.” He asked, “Ya Rasulullah Sallallaahu Alaihi wa Sallam!  Which deed is the best?” Rasulullah Sallallaahu Alaihi wa Sallam said,“Your tongue be wet with Zikr of Allah when you part from this world.” ~ Tirmidhi

Benefits and Blessings of Zikrullah

1) Zikr keeps away Shaytaan and weakens his strength. When a person takes the name of Allah, it repels Shaytaan.

2)  Zikr is the means of attaining Almighty Allah Ta’ala’s pleasure. When Shaytaan is repelled, then the Zaakir who is taking the name of Allah, pleases Allah …

3) Zikr relieves the mind from anxieties and worries. When a person that is stressed and has worries, sits in the Majlis of Zikr, he automatically feels de-stressed. All the anguish seems to disappear when he takes the name of Allah and his heart becomes stronger and happier.

4) Zikr produces joy and happiness in the heart.

5) Zikr strengthens the body and mind.

6) Zikr brightens the face and heart. When a person makes the Zikr of Allah, he strengths his heart and his face will also be brightened. A Zaakir who makes Zikr for long periods of time, besides his heart becoming illuminated, the effects of the Zikr comes onto his face and his eyes. The Zikr of Allah brings Noor on a persons face.

7) Zikr nourishes the soul. Just as food nourishes our bodies, Zikrullah nourishes our soul. A person who is not constant with the Zikr of Allah is keeping his soul in an impoverished condition. The soul, then becomes hungry and is not nourished correctly. Just as a person who suffers ill-health when he eats unhealthy food, one is not going to be a spiritually healthy person when he does not receive the appropriate spiritual nourishment.

8) Zikr involves Muraaqabah (meditation) through which one reaches the stage of Ihsaan, wherein a person worships Almighty Allah Ta’ala as if he is actually seeing Him.

9)  Zikr helps a person to turn to Allah.

10) Zikr is the key to the nearness of Almighty Allah Ta’ala. The more abundant the Zikr, the more one will get nearer to Allah Ta’ala.

Hazrat Abu Huraira (RA)narrated that  Rasulullah Sallallaahu Alaihi wa Sallam said, “Allah Tabaraka wa Ta’ala says when a person moves his lips for Zikr of Allah, I am with him.” ~ Bukhari

11) Zikr opens the doors of realization (Ma’arifat) of Allah Ta’ala.

12) Zikr of Allah Ta’ala causes one to be remembered the court of Allah Ta’ala, as the Quraan states:

فَاذْكُرُونِي أَذْكُرْكُمْ وَاشْكُرُوا لِي وَلَاتَكْفُرُونِ
 ” Remember me, and I will remember you.” (2:152)

13) Zikr cleanses the heart of its rust. It has been mentioned; everything rusts according to its nature; and to purify it, Zikr is necessary.

14) Zikr saves a person from the Azaab of Allah. It is a means of deliverance from Allah Ta’ala’s punishment.

15) Zikr causes Allah Ta’ala’s peace and mercy to descend, and the Angels surround the person engaged in Zikr.

16) Zikr will save one from despair on the Day of Judgement. This is confirmed by one of the Ahâdith which says that the gathering devoid of Allah Ta’ala’s Zikr will cause sorrow and regret on that Day.

17) Zikr causes the plants and trees of Paradise to grow.

Kayfiyat and Zikrullah

Many times we want to experience some type of Kayfiyat (feeling) when making Zikrullah. This can be dangerous sometimes, because a person may develop pride when experiencing those feelings and may then perceive himself to be very pious …

Hence the Mashaa’ikh emphasize that we should, never be concerned about Kayfiyat, as this is not the Maqsood (objective) of Zikr. The purpose of Zikr is to cleanse our hearts and bring Allah into our hearts …

If one does not feel any special type of enjoyment, one should not feel dejected or low … One should continue making the Zikr of Allah … We have heard the blessings of Zikr, and its many great benefits which brings us closer and closer to Allah Ta’ala … and that is our objective.
