244. Chapter: On the excellence of dhikr and encouraging it

Allah says, “And remembrance of Allah is greater still” (29:45) and the Almighty says, “Remember Me – I will remember you. Give thanks to Me and do not be ungrateful,” (W2:151; H2:152) and the Almighty says, “Remember your Lord in yourself humbly and fearfully, without loudness of voice, morning and evening. Do not be among the heedless.” (7:205) The Almighty says, “Remember Allah much so that hopefully you will be successful,” (62:10) and He says, “Muslim men and women – (to) men and women who remember Allah much: Allah has prepared forgiveness for them and an immense reward.” (33:35) Allah says, “O you who believe! Remember Allah, much, and glorify Him in the morning and the evening.” (33:41-42)

1408. Abu Hurayra reported that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, “Two words are light on the tongue, heavy in the balance, beloved to the Merciful: ‘Glory be to Allah and by His praise. Glory be to Allah, the Immense.'” [Agreed upon]

1409. Abu Hurayra reported that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, “I prefer saying, ‘Glory be to Allah and praise belongs to Allah. There is no god but Allah. Allah is greater’ to everything the sun rises on.” [Muslim]

1410. Abu Hurayra reported that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, “Anyone who says, ‘There is no god but Allah alone with no partner. His is the kingdom and His is the praise, and He has power over everything’ a hundred times a day, has the same reward as if he had freed ten slaves, and a hundred good deeds are written for him and a hundred bad deeds are effaced from him and he has protection from Shaytan on that day until evening. No one will do anything better than he does except a man who does it more than he did.” He said, “Anyone who says, ‘Glory be to Allah and by His praise’ a hundred times a day will have his sins fall away, even if they are like the froth of the sea.” [Agreed upon]
