Hadrat Samura bin – Jundab (Radi Aflaahu Ta’ala Anhu) narrated that the Messenger of ALLAH said “The most excellent words are four:
1. Glory be to ALLAH,

2. Praise be to ALLAH,

3. There is no god but ALLAH,

4. ALLAH is most great. [Muslim]

Hadrat Abu Hurairah (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu) narrated that the Messenger of ALLAH said, “Two expressions which are light on the tongue but heavy in the scale are dear to the Compassionate One:

“Glory be to ALLAH and I begin with praise of Him,”

“and Glory be to ALLAH, the incomparably great” [Bukhari – Muslim]

Hadrat Juwairyia (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anha) narrated that the Prophet went out from her apartment one morning at the time when he performed the morning Salaah while she was in her place of worship. He returned in the forenoon and found her sitting. He asked her if she was still in the same position as that in which he had left her, and when she replied that it was so, he said, “Since leaving you I have three times recited four phrases which , if weighed against all you have recited today, would prove to be heavier:

“Glory be to ALLAH and I begin with Praise of Him to the number of His creatures, in accordance with His good pleasure, to the weight of His throne and the extent of His words. [Muslim]
