|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.
