SubhanAllahi Wa Bihamdihi, SubhanAllahil Azeem
“Glory be to Allah and all praise is due to him, glory is to Allah the great.”
Numerous times in the Holy Qur’an, Allah has reminded us to remember him.
“Remember Me, and I shall remember you.”Qur’an 2:152
But how should we remember Him? Qur’an answers this question too.
And glorify Him in the morning and in the evening (day and night).Al Ahzab # 42
So, the best way to remember Allah is by glorifying/praising Him.
There are multiple ways of remembering (doing zikr) Allah. One can remember Allah in one’s heart; or by praising/glorifying Him in words.
However, one of the lightest and the best ways to remember Allah in words is what our Prophet (PBUH) has told us. We remember Him as well as glorify/praise him in those (mentioned) words.
Moreover, Ahadees have reported tremendous benefits of that specific zikr.
Subhanallahi Wa Bihamdihi Subhanallahil Azeem Benefits
Hazrat Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) has reported that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said,
As mentioned, the words are light on the tongue but their benefits are significant.
Similarly, Narrated by Abu Huraira: Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said,
So, to summarize the benefits of this zikr as reported in the Hadees;
- Fulfillment of Allah’s command to remember and glorify Him.
- Words are light in weight but heavy in rewards.
- A source of forgiveness no matter how many sins one has committed.
As mentioned in the Hadees above, one should do it at least 100 times a day. However, the more we remember and praise Allah, the better it would be for us.
