Hadith & Seerah, The Teachings of the Holy Prophet, The Ways of the Prophet (SAWS) / Wednesday, April 28th, 2010

In the Musnad of Ahmed, there is a tradition from Umm Salama (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anha) that ALLAH’s Messsenger (SallAllahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) taught the following phrases to his daughter Hadrat Fatimah (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anha) when she came to ask him for a servant. He said, When you go to bed, say the following phrases. Subhan ALLAH (Glory be to ALLAH) – 33 times Alhamdu Lillah (Praise be to ALLAH ) – 33 times Allahu Akbar (ALLAH is most great) – 34 times And say once:

There is no god except ALLAH, the One who has no partner. To him belongs Absolute Sovereignty and Praise. He has power over all things. [Muslim, Bukhari, Tirmizi]

It is commendable for the individual to say the above supplication once after every prescribed Salaah to complete the number hundred. [Zad -ul- Ma’ad]

Whoever recites the following ten times after Fajr Salaah and Maghrib Salaah while sitting at his place without moving and Without speaking to any body; for him it is very effective for sustaining good deeds, removing evil and elevating spritual ranks. There is no god except ALLAH, the One, Who has no partner, To Him belongs the absolute soverignty and praise. He brings to life, and gives death and He has power over all things. [Madarij-un-Nubuwah, Zadul Ma’ad]
