Ramadan Companion E-Course Lesson 30 of 30


EXCELLENCE OF TAKBIIR:

 

ALLAAHU AKBAR

Abu Hurayrah [R.A.] reported that the Prophet, peace be upon him, said, “Who ever says,

“La Ilaaha illallaahu wahdahu la sharika lahu, lahul-mulku wa lahul-hamdu wa huwa ‘ala kulli shay-in qadiir”

a hundred times during a day will have a reward equivalent to the reward for freeing ten slaves.  Besides, a hundred good deeds will be recorded for him, and a hundred bad deeds of his will be wiped off, and it will be a safeguard for him from Satan that day until evening, and no one will be better in deeds than such a person except he who does more than that.”

In the version of Muslim, Tirmidhi, and Nasa’i, we find this addition: “And whoever says:

“Sub-haanallaahi wa bi-hamdihi”

a hundred times during a day, will have all his sins wiped off even if they were as numerous as the foam on the surface of the sea.”

[ Reported by Al-Bukhari, Muslim, At-Tirmidhi, An-Nasaa-I and Ibn Maajah.]

Samura Ibn Jundab [R.A.] reported that the Holy Prophet, peace be upon him, said:

“The dearest phrases to Allah are four: Sub-haa-nal-laah ( Glory be to Allah), Alhamdu lillaah ( Praise be to Allah ), Laa ilaaha illallaah (There is no god but Allah), and ALLAAHU AKBAR (ALLAH IS THE GREATEST). There is no harm in beginning them in any order you choose while remembering Allah.”

[ Reported by Imam Muslim ]

On the authority of Abu Dharr Al-Ghifaari [R.A.] who narrated:

Some of the Companions of the Messenger of Allah [S] said to the Prophet [S]:  O Messenger of Allah, the affluent have made off with the rewards: they pray as we pray, they fast as we fast, and they give away in charity the best of their wealth.

He said:

“Has not Allah made things for you to give away in charity?  Truly every TASBIIH ( SUBHAANALLAAH ) is a charity, every TAKBIIR ( ALLAAHU AKBAR )  is a charity, every TAHMIID ( ALHAMDULILLAAH )  is a charity;  to enjoin a good action is a charity, to forbid an evil action is a charity, and in the (legal) sexual act of each of you there is charity.”

The Companions said:  O Messenger of Allah, when one of us fulfils his sexual desire will he have some reward for that?

He said:

“Do you (not) think that were he to act upon it unlawfully he would be sinning?  Likewise, if he has acted upon it lawfully he will be rewarded.”

[ Reported by Imam Muslim ]
