And say: “All the praises and thanks be to Allah, Who has not begotten a son (or offspring), and Who has no partner in (His) Dominion, nor He is low to have a Wali (helper, protector or supporter). And magnify Him with all magnificence, [Allahu- Akhar (Allah is the Most Great)]” (Surah Al-Isra: 111).

He also praised Himself, the Mighty and Sublime, at the completion of creation. The Most High and The most High said:

And you will see the angles surrounding the Throne (of Allah) from all round, glorifying the praises of their Lord (Allah). And they (all the creatures) will be judged with truth. And it will be said, “All the praises and thanks be to Allah, the Lord of the Alamin (mankind, jinn and all that exists).” (Surah Az-Zumar: 75).


He is the Mighty and Sublime. He is praised at the commencement of creation, the end creation and continuation of creation. And He is praised for the legislation He revealed to His slave. Rather, He is praised at all times.

  • We seek refuge in Him from the evil of our own souls and from the wickedness of our deeds.
  • Whomever He guides then nothing can make him lost, and whomever He makes lost then nothing can guide him.
  • I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah, alone, Who has no partner, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and His Messenger.

All Praise To Allah

If the Prophet SAW receives a news that gladdens him, he would say,

Alhamdu lillahi ladhi bini’matihi tatimmus-saalihaat (All praise be to Allah, the One whose favour makes righteous deeds completed.)”

And when he receives what contradicts that, he would say: “Alhamdu lillahi alaa kulli haal (All praise be to Allah in every situation.)”

0n What some people say today, “All praise is due to Allah, the One beside whom none is praised over misfortune” is a mistake, a blunder.

This is because uttering this statement is a sign that you dislike what has been decreed for you.

However, say as the Prophet SAW said, “All praise in due to Allah in every situation.” This is what is right and the Sunnah as reported from the Prophet SAW.

Allah – the most High – praised Himself and ordered that He should be praised. Allah, the most High said:

“Say: Praise and thanks be to Allah, and peace be on His slaves whom He has chosen (for His Message)”

Surah An-Naml: 59

So He commanded us to praise Him, the Mighty and Sublime. In fact, He made our praise of Him one of the pillars of Prayer, and the Prayer will not be complete without it.

The beginning of Al-Fatihah (the opening chapter of the Qur’an) is, “All the praises and thanks be to Allah, the Lord of Alamin.”

Your Salat will not be valid if you omit this verse from Al-Fatihah.

It is obligatory for everyone to praise Allah, the most High.

The important point is that we should be grateful for the blessings of Allah, and gratitude should be in form of the blessing. Give out knowledge and wealth in accordance to what Allah, the most High, has given you.

Likewise, if Allah gives you good health and vigour and your brothers are in need of assistance and support, it will be a form of gratitude for the blessing of Allah to assist them with your good health.Allah alone grants success.

Allah – the most High – says:

“Therefore remember Me (by praying, glorying), I will remember you, and be grateful to Me (for My countless Favours on you) and never be ungrateful to Me.”

Surah Al-Baqarah: 152

The – most High – says:“If you give thanks (by accepting Faith and worshipping none but Allah). I will give you more (of My blessings).”

Surah Ibrahim: 7

Allah, most High, says: “And say: “And the praises and thanks be to Allah.” [Al-Isra’]

He says: “And the close of the request will be: Al-Hamdu Lillah Rabbil- Alamin [All the praises and thanks be to Allah, the Lord ofAlamin (mankind, Jinn and all that exists)” [Surah Yunus: 10]

It is well-known to us that the entirety of our blessings is from Allah, the Mighty and Sublime.

Likewise, when harm touches us, we do not have any refuge except with Allah, and He will utilize any harm or aversion that befalls a person to atone for his sins.

Allah, the Most High, expiates sins from a believer with every injury, apprehension and anxiety that afflicts him.

Hence, the favours of Allah are immense and boundless. So, we must thank Allah, the Most High, and be grateful to Him for His favours which He has perfected on us.

One of the benefits of praise is that Allah, the Most High, will put blessing in whatever you start with His praise.

That is, when he wishes to begin a book, make a speech or deliver a sermon, Allah will put blessings in this affair if he begins with the praise of Allah.

Every affair that does not start with the praise of Allah is deprived of blessing.

However, the praise of Allah could be replaced with other statements such as Basmallah, which is the saying of ‘In the Name of Allah’.

Also, Allah blesses so many affairs with Basmallah.

One of such is the slaughtering of animal; the animal becomes lawful and pure at the saying of ‘Bismillah’.

If he says ‘Alhamdulillaah’, the animal is not lawful because an animal only becomes lawful with saying of ‘Bismallah.’ If he says, ‘Allahu Akbar while slaughtering, without saying ‘Bismillah’, the act is unlawful.

Every affair that begins with the praise of Allah is good and blessed. But al-Hamd may be replaced with other statements such as Basmallah before eating, drinking, slaughtering and ablution.

Another benefit of the praise of Allah is that He, Blessed is He and the most High, is pleased with a slave who praises Him when he eats a morsel of food and praises Him when he takes in a mouthful of drink.

This is one of the benefits of praise. If a person praises Allah over a meal or drink, it will be a means of his earning Allah’s pleasure.

We ask Allah to shower His pleasure upon you and us. Verily, He has power over all things.
