THE IMPORTANCE OF THIKR

Abu Huraira reported: Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: He who uttered these words: “La ilaha illal-lah wahdahu la sharika lahu, lahu-l-mulk wa lahu-l-hamd wa huwa ala kulli shai’in qadir”. (What it means). “There is none has the right to be worshipped but Allah, the One, having no partner with Him, Sovereignty belongs to Him and all the praise is due to Him, and He is Potent over everything, One hundred times every day there is a reward of emancipating ten slaves for him, and there are recorded hundred vices are blotted out from his scroll, and that is a safeguard for him against the Satan on that day till evening and no one brings anything more excellent than this, except one who has done more than this (who utters these words more than one hundred times and does more good acts) and he who utters: Glory be to Allah, and all praise is due to Him”. one hundred times a day, his sins are obliterated even if they are equal to the extent of the foam of the ocean”. (Agreed upon).
 
Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: “He who recites in the morning and in the evening (these words): Glory be to Allah and all praise is due to Him” one hundred times, no one brings, on the Day of Resurrection anything more excellent than this, except one who utter these words and utters more than these words”. (Sahih Muslim).
 
Amr b. Maimun reported on the authority of Abu Ayyub Ansari, who narrated from Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him): “He who uttered: There is none has the right to be worshipped but Allah, the one, having no partner with Him, His is the Sovereignty and all praise is due to Him and He is Potent over everything” ten times, he is like one who emancipated four slaves from the progeny of Isma’il”. (Agreed upon).
 
Abu Huraira reported: Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: “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”. (Agreed upon).
 
Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: “The uttering of (these words): Glory be to Allah, all praise is due to Allah, there is none has the right to be worshipped but Allah, and Allah is the Greatest, is dearer to me than anything over which the sun rises”.  (Agreed upon).
 
Mu’sab b. Sa’d reported on the authority of his father that a desert Arab came to Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) and said to him: Teach me the words which I should (often) utter. He said “Utter, There is none has the right to be worshipped but Allah, the One, having no partner with Him. Allah is the Greatest of the great and all praise is due to Him. Glory be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds, there is no Might and Power but that of Allah, the All-Powerful and the Wise”. He (that desert Arab) said: These all (glorify) my Lord. But what about me? Thereupon he (the Prophet) said: You should say: “O Allah, grant me pardon, have mercy upon me, direct me to righteousness and provide me sustenance”. Musa (one of the narrator) said: I think he also said: Grant me safety” But I cannot say for certain Whether he said this is not. Ibn Abi Shaiba has not made a mention of the words of Musa in his narration. (Sahih Muslim).
 
Juwairiya reported that Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) after performing Dawn prayer, came out from (her apartment) as she was busy in observing her dawn prayer in her place of worship. He came back in the forenoon and she was still sitting there. He (may peace be upon him) said to her: Have you been in the same seat since I left you? She said: Yes. Thereupon Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: I recited four words-three times-after I left you and if these are to be weighed against what you have recited since morning these would outweigh them and (these words) are: “Glory be to Allah and praise is due to Him according to the number of His creation and according to the pleasure of His Self and according to the weight of His Throne and according to the ink (used in recording) his words”. (Sahih Muslim).
