Upon Entering a Market Place

Upon Entering a Market Place (255)
The Messenger of Allah said:"Whoever enters the marketplace and says:Lă 'ilăha 'illă 'allăhu wahdahu lă shareeka lahu, lahul mulku, wa lahul hamdu, yuhyee wa yumeetu, wa huwa hayyun lă yamootu, biyadihil khayru, wa huwa 'ală kulli shay'in qadeerun(259)
Allah would write for him one thousand thousand merits, would remit from him one thousand thousand sins,and would raise for him [his status] one thousand thousand levels".

(259) There is no 'ilăh except Allah, no partner does He have; his is the Kingdom, and to Him is all Praise; He livens, and mortifies; and He is alive; never to die. In his Hand is all good, and He is well able to do everything.


Reported by At-Tirmithi. Al-Albăni said that At-Tirmithi weakened it by saying that it was a "strange" hadeeth. A strange hadeeth is one that is reported by only one person at some of its links; however he said it becomes comely when all of its channels are considered. Specifically he referred to Al-Hăkim's (528-539/1),Ibn As-Sunni's (#178), and Imăm Ahmad's Az-zuhd (#214). He also said that Al-Munthiree said it was comely in At-Targheeb. Albăni included this hadeeth in The Authentic of Good Sayings as #183.
