Gaining Rewards (Part 1)


1- The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said : Whoever says :

لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَه،ُ لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْد،ُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ

‘There is none worthy of worship in truth except Allaah Alone, He has no partners, to Him belongs the Dominion and for Him is all praise, and He is capable of all things.’ –

<<La ilaha ‘illa Allaahu wahdahu la shareeka lahu, lahul mulku wa lahul hamdu wa huwa ala kulli shayin qadeer>>

one hundred times in one day, then it is equivalent to, him freeing ten slaves, and a hundred good deeds are written for him, and a hundred bad deeds are erased, and it is a protection for him against shaytaan during that day until the evening, and no one comes with a better deed than him except for the man who does more actions than him

2 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said: Whoever says : –

سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ وَبِحَمْدِهِ

Far is Allaah from imperfection and praise is for Him’

<<Subhana allaahi wa bihamdihi>>

one hundred times in one day, then his mistakes / sins are cancelled out, even if they are like the foam on the ocean.

3 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said :

There are two words which are gentle on the tongue, heavy on the scales , and beloved to ar-Rahmaan : –

: سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ وَبِحَمْدِهِ ، سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ الْعَظِيمِ.

‘Far is Allaah from imperfection and praise is for Him, Far is Allaah The Sublime from imperfection’

<<Subhana allaahi wa bihamdihi, Subhana allaahil atheem>>

4 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said :

Indeed that I say :

سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ ، وَالْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ ، وَلَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ ، وَاللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ

‘Far is Allaah from imperfection, and praise be to Allaah, and there is none worthy of worship in truth except Allaah, and Allaah is the Greatest,’

<<Subhana allaahi, wal hamdu lillaahi, wa la illaah ila Allaah, wa Allaahu akbar – is more beloved to me than what the sun rose upon.>>

5 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said :

Is one of you so weak that he cannot acquire a thousand good deeds everyday? So a questioner from amongst those sitting there asked him : How can anyone of us gain a thousand rewards?

He said : say :

سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ

Far is Allaah from imperfection –

<<Subhana allaahi>>

a hundred times, so a thousand good deeds are written for him or a thousand sins are cancelled for him.

6 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said :

Shall I not inform you of a statement, which is a treasure from the treasures of Paradise? I said : yes O Messenger of Allaah, may my father & mother be sacrificed for you! He said : say :

لَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللَّهِ

There is no capability nor is there any power except with Allaah.

<<La hawla wa la quwwata illa billaa>>

7 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said :

Whosoever, reaches the morning & reaches the evening and he says :

سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ وَبِحَمْدِهِ

– ‘Allaah is far from imperfection and all praise is for Him’ –

<<Subhana allaahi wa bihamdihi>>

one hundred times, then no one brings anything better than him on the day of judgment, than what he has brought. Except the one who says what he has said, or has said more than him.

8 – On the authority of Mu’aad bin Abdillaah ibn Khubayb on the authority of his father who said we went out on a very dark and rainy night searching for the Messenger of Allaah so that he could pray for us, then I found him and he صَلَّى اللَّه عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ said : Recite. So I did not say anything, then he said : Recite. So I did not say anything, and he said : Recite, so I said : what should I recite? He said : recite :

“قُلْ هُوَ اللَّهُ أَحَدٌ”

‘Say that Allaah is the One.’ And the last two soorahs (al-muawaathatayan) in the evening and the morning, three times for it will suffice you for everything.

9 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said :

Indeed the major supplication for forgiveness is to say:

اللَّهُمَّ أَنْتَ رَبِّي لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ خَلَقْتَنِي وَأَنَا عَبْدُكَ وَأَنَا عَلَى عَهْدِكَ وَوَعْدِكَ مَا اسْتَطَعْتُ أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا صَنَعْتُ أَبُوءُ لَكَ بِذَنْبِي وَأَبُوءُ لَكَ بِنِعْمَتِكَ عَلَيَّ فَاغْفِرْ لِي فَإِنَّهُ لَا يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ

O Allaah You are my Lord, there is none worthy of worship in truth except You, You created me and I am Your slave and I am abiding to Your covenant and promise as best as I can, I seek refuge in You from the evil that I have committed, I profess to you my sins and I acknowledge Your favour upon me, so forgive me verily no one forgives sins except you.

<<Allaahumma anta rabbee, la ilaha illa anta, Khalaqtanee, wa ana abduka, wa ana ala ahdika wa wa’dika mastata’tu, a’outhu bika min sharri ma sanatu, aboo’u laka bini’matika alayya, wa aboo’u bitahmbee, faghfirlee fa’innahu la yaghfiru ath-thunooba ‘illa ‘anta>>

so if the worshipper says this when the morning arrives, truly believing in it and he dies enters Paradise, and if he says this when the evening arrives truly believing in it enters Paradise.

10 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said :

There is not one from amongst the worshippers, that if he says, in the morning of everyday an the evening of every night : –

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الَّذِي لَا يَضُرُّ مَعَ اسْمِهِ شَيْءٌ فِي الْأَرْضِ وَلَا فِي السَّمَاءِ وَهُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْعَلِيمُ

In the name of Allaah with whose name nothing is harmed what so ever, on this earth nor in the heavens, and He is the All Hearing and All Knowing

<<Bismil-lahil-lathee la yadhurru ma’a ‘issmihi shay’un fil ‘ardhi wa la fissama’i wa huwa ‘as-samee’ul –‘aleem>>

three times nothing harms him what so ever.

11 – On the authority of Abu Huraira may Allaah be pleased with him, some one came to him to take from the charity – which the Prophet – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – had placed Abu Huraira to look after, and this person came night after night, so on the third night Abu Huraira said to him : I will take you to the Messenger of Allaah. So he said, Why don’t you leave me and I will teach you some words that Allaah will benefit you by – and Abu Huraira was of those who were very attentive regarding good deeds – so that the person said to him: When you go to bed, read

Ayaat ul-Kursi:

(الله لا إلهَ إلا هُوَ الحيُ القَيُومَ )

(( Allaah, none has the right to be worshipped except Him The Ever living, The One Who sustains and protects all that exists ))

until the end of the ayat, then this will continue to be a protection for you from Allaah, and shaytan will not be able to come near you until the morning arrives. The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said: He spoke the truth even though he is a liar, [ that was shaytan].

12 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said:

Who ever recites the last two Ayaat from Soorah al-Baqara at night, those two verses will be sufficient for him.

13 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said :

Shall I not show what will be better for you than a servant? If you lie down on your bed, then say SubhanAllaah 33 times, and say al-hamdulillaah 33 times, and say Allaahu akbar 34 times.

14 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said :

Who ever wakes up at night, and says : –

لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَه،ُ لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْد،ُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ،الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ ،وَ سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ ، وَلَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ ، وَاللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ ،وَ لَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللَّهِ العليِ الْعَظِيمِ.

‘There is none worthy of worship in truth except Allaah Alone, He has no partners, He has the Dominion and for Him is all praise, and He is capable of all things, praise is for Him, and Far is Allaah from imperfection, and There is none worthy of worship in truth except Allaah, and Allaah is the Greatest, there is no capability nor is there any power except with Allaah the Most High the ‘Atheem.’ (Supreme)

<<La ilaha ‘illa Allaahu wahdahu la shareeka lahu, lahul mulku wa lahul hamdu wa huwa ala kulli shayin qadeer, Subhana allaahi, wal hamdu lillaahi, wa la illaah ila Allaah, wa Allaahu akbar La hawla wa la quwwata illa billaahi ‘alial adhee>>

Then he says: اللهمَ اغْفِرْلي O Allaah forgive me, or he supplicates and his supplication is answered, and if he makes wudu and he pray then his prayer is accepted.

15– The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said:

Who ever goes to bed with purification….there is not a hour of the night that he asks Allaah for something of good from this world and the hereafter, except that Allaah grants him that which he asked for.

16 – Abu Salma said that he heard Abu Qatada say that he heard the Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – say:

A good dream is from Allaah and a bad dream is from shaytaan, so if anyone sees something in his dream which he dislikes, then he should spit on his left side 3 times when he awakens, and he should seek refuge with Allaah from its evil, then it will not harm him if Allaah so wills.

17 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said :

A good dream is from Allaah, so if any one of you sees something in his dream that he likes, then he should not relate it to anyone except the one whom he loves, and if he sees that which he dislikes, then he should not relate it to anyone, rather he should spit on his left side 3 times, and he should seek refuge with Allaah from the evil of the accursed shaytaan, and the evil of what he saw, then it will not harm him.

18– The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said :

Our Lord –tabarak wa ta’ala descends every night to the lowest heavens, when there remains the last third part of the night, and He says whoever supplicates to me so that I may answer his supplication, whoever asks of me so that I may grant him what he asks for, whoever seeks my forgiveness so that I may forgive him.

19 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said :

Indeed there is an hour from the night, which if a Muslim asks Allaah in that time from the good of the affairs of this world and the hereafter, then Allaah gives him of it, and that is in every night.

20 – On the authority of Abu Huraira that the Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said :

Whoever says, as he leaves from his house:

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ ، تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَى اللَّهِ ،ولَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللَّهِ تعالى

In the name of Allaah, I have placed my trust in Allaah, and there is no capability nor is there any power except with Allaah Ta ála

<<Bismillaahi tawwakaltu al ‘alaahi wa la hawla wa la quwwata illa billahi,>>

then it is said to him: indeed you have been saved, and you have been protected, and you have been guided, and shaytaan has been kept away from him, so another shaytaan says: how can you affect a man who has indeed been guided and saved and been protected?

21 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said :

If a man enters his home, and he remembers Allaah when he enters and when he eats his food, the shaytaan says: there is no place for you to spend the night nor is there any dinner, and if he does not remember Allaah when he enters his house then the shaytaan says: you have found a place to spend the night and if he does not remember Allaah while he is eating his food then he says you have found food to eat.

22 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said:

O my son if you enter your home then say salaams it will be a blessing for you and your family.

23 – When the Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – would enter the masjid he would say :

أَعُوذُ بِاللَّهِ الْعَظِيمِ وَبِوَجْهِهِ الْكَرِيمِ وَسُلْطَانِهِ الْقَدِيمِ مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ الرَّجِيمِ

I seek refuge with Allaah The Supreme and with His Noble Face, and His eternal authority from the accursed shaytaan –

<<A’outhu bil-lahil ‘atheemi, wa bi-wajhihil-kareem, wa bi-sultanihil-qadeem min ‘ash-shaytanir-rajeemi>>

then he said: if he says this supplication then the shaytaan says: this person has been protected from me for the rest of the day.

24 – The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said:

If the people knew what was there (in benefit for them) in the adhaan and praying in the front row, and they could not get to it except by drawing lots, then they would draw lots.

25- The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said :

There is none from the jinn, mankind and anything else that hears the reach of the muaddhin’s (the caller to pray) voice, except that they will testify for him on the day of Resurrection.

About Umm Abdulazeez

"I am a Muslim who is upon the Qur'aan and the Sunnah and upon the methodology of the Salaf As-Saalih (Pious Predecessors). And that can be said in short by saying, 'I am a Salafee' " [Shaykh Al-Albaanee رحمه الله] ________ Sufyaan Ath-Thawree (rahimahullaah) said: “Indeed knowledge should only be learned for the purpose of fearing Allaah. Indeed, knowledge has been given virtue over other than it because with it Allaah is feared.” [Jaam'i Bayaan al-'Ilm wa Fadlihi by Imaam Ibn Abdil-Barr (rahimahullaah)]
