Utter it in the last part of the day so that the sins of the day will be obliterated from you. Embrace the opportunity, O my brother and sister. Take the opportunity. Our lifespan is fleeing and it will not return.

What has passed in your lifetime will never return to you. These actions are light and beneficial. The reward is great although the action is small. We ask Allah to aid us in remembering Him, thanking Him and perfecting His worship.

Subhanallahi Wa Bihamdihi

The above hadeeths all indicate the excellence of remembrance of Allah.


The Prophet Muhammad SAW said that there are two phrases that are light for the tongue to remember, heavy in the scale and are dear to Allah, the Merciful: Subhanallah wa bihamdihi, Subhanallahil Azeem.

On the Day of Resurrection, when deeds will be weighed, these two expressions will be heavy when placed in the scale.

They are dear to Allah, the Merciful.

This is the greatest of rewards; that Allah, the most High, loves these words. If Allah loves a deed, He also loves the one who does it.

Therefore, these two statements are among the reasons of Allah’s love for His slaves, Glory be to Him and the most High.

In one Hadith, Abu Hurairah reported: The Messenger of Allah SAW said,

“He who says a hundred times in a day these words: ‘subhanallahi wa bihamdihi, one hundred times in a day, his sins will be forgiven even if they are equal to the extent of the foam of the ocean.”

Benefits of Subhan Allah wa Bihamdihi

If you utter these words hundreds times in a day, you will attain these five virtues:

  • Firstly, a reward equivalent to that of emancipating ten slaves;
  • Secondly, a hundred good deeds will be recorded to his credit;
  • Thirdly, a hundred of his sins will be blotted out from his scroll;
  • Fourthly, he will be safeguarded against the devil; and
  • Fifthly, no one will exceed him in doing more excellent good deeds except someone who did more than what he has done.

Zikr is one of the most important acts of ibadah in our beautiful religion.

Hafiz Ibn Qayyim (RA), a well-known Muhadith (A scholar of traditions), has written an authentic book, ‘Al-Waabilus Sayyib’, on the virtues of Zikr, which are more than one hundred.

  • Zikr keeps away the Shaitan and weakens his strength.
  • It is the cause of Almighty Allah’s pleasure.
  • It relieves the mind from anxieties and worries.
  • It produces joy and happiness in the heart.
  • It strengthens the body and mind.
  • It brightens the face and heart.
  • It attracts one’s sustenance.
  • It induces love for Allah, which in fact is the spirit of Islam and the pivot of Deen (religion), and the source of success and salvation in the Hereafter. He who seeks access to the love of Almighty Allah Ta’ala should do Zikr profusely. Just as reading and repetition is the door of knowledge, so Zikr of Allah is the gateway of His love.
  • It helps in realization of Allah so that by and by a stage is reached when he comes to regard Almighty Allah as his sole Cherisher, Guardian and Master, and he turns unto Him, in all afflictions.
  • It is the key to the nearness of Almighty Allah.
  • More abundant the Zikr, more one will get nearer to Allah, and greater the indifference to Zikr, greater will be the distance from Him.
  • It makes one to realize the greatness and grandeur of Almighty Allah, and strengthens the consciousness of His omni-presence.
Subhanallahi Wa Bihamdihi

It should be known that the remembrance of Allah, the most High, could be with the heart, tongue and limbs.

As for (remembrance of Allah) with the heart, it is meditation. This includes one pondering over the names of Allah, His attributes, His edicts, His actions and signs.

Remembrance (of Allah) with the tongue is clear. It includes every word that brings one closer to Allah, the Mighty and Sublime, such as Tahleel (the saying: laa ilaaha illallaah), Tasbeeh (the saying: Subhaanallaah), Takbeer (the saying: Allahu Akbar), reciting the Qur’an, enjoining good and forbidding evil, reading the books of Sunnah and (books) of knowledge.

As for the Remembrance of Allah with the limbs, it is every action that drawsone closer to Allah such as standing in Prayer, bowing, prostration, sitting and others.

However, remembrance of Allah is usually employed to describe Tasbeeh, Tahmeed, Takbeer and Tahleel.

Among the verses of virtues of Remembrance of Allah is the saying of Allah – the most High:

“O you who believe! Remember Allah with much remembrance. And glorify His Praises morning and afternoon”.

Allah addressed the believers and ordered them to remember Him, the most High – with much remembrance at all times, in every situation and every place.

“Remember Allah with much remembrance and glorify His Praises morning and afternoon”.

That is, say Subhanallaah (Glory be to Allah) in the morning and afternoon, which are the earliest part of the day and the later part of the day.

It can be interpreted to mean the entire duration of day and night.

Allah, the most High, says: “And remember Allah much that you may be successful”.

It is important for one to repeat these statements frequently and persist in doing so because they are heavy on the scale, dear to the Merciful and light for the tongue to remember.

A hadeeth on the authority of Aboo Hurayrah – may Allah be pleased with him – that the Prophet SAW said:

“The uttering of the words: Subhanallaah, Alhamdulillaah, laa ilaaha illallaah and Allah Akbar is dearer to me than anything over which the sun rises.”

That is, it is dearer to me than the entire world. They are also light statements: Subhanallaah, Al-hamdulillaah, La ilaaha illallaah and Allah Akbar.

Today, people travel and traverse caves, deserts, dangerous spots and cover long distances simply to reap little benefits from the world which they may enjoy or not enjoy.

Unfortunately, one is unable to carry out these great actions because the Devil makes one lethargic and discourages one from them.

Otherwise, as stated by the Messenger of Allah, it should be dearer to a person than anything over which the sun rises.

If we assume that you possess the entire world, how will your possessions benefit you when death approaches? You will not benefit in any way. However, Subhanallaah, Alhamdulillaah, laa ilaaha illallaah and Allahu Akbar are righteous deeds that last.
