The Virtues of Tahmeed, Tahleel, and Tasbeeh

The Virtues of Tahmeed, Tahleel, and Tasbeeh (6)

The Messenger of Allah said: "Whoever says: Lă 'ilăha 'illă 'allăhu wahdahu lă shareeka lahu, lahulmulku wa lahul hamdu wa huwa `ală kulli shay'in qadeerun(7)
100 times would get the reward of manumitting ten slaves, one hundred good deeds would be written for him, one hundred sins would be remitted from him, it would be a shield for him from the Shaytan that day till night, and nobody would arrive with better than what he arrived with except for one that had done more than him."
Footnotes

(6) Tahmeed is to say 'Al-hamdu lillăhi, Tahleel is to say Lă 'ilăha 'illă 'allăhu, and Tasbeeh is to say Subhana 'allăhi.

(7) There is no 'ilăh except Allah, no partner does He have; his is the Kingdom, and to Him is all Praise, and He is ever-able to do everything.

The Virtues of Tahmeed, Tahleel, and Tasbeeh (12)
It is reported by way of 'um 'al-mu'mineen Juwayriyata, , that the Prophet left her place at an early time as he was about to pray the Subh Prayer. She was in her prayer area; he returned after he had entered upon the time of dhuhă(13), and she was sitting. He said "Are you still in that state I left you upon?" She said: Yes. The Messenger of Allah said "After I left you, I repeated four phrases, three times. If these were balanced against what you have said since the beginning of this day they would weigh (or, as the Arabic allows, outweigh) them: Subhăna 'allăhi `adada khalqihi, subhăna 'allăhi ridhă nafsihi, subhăna 'allăhi zinata `arshihi, subhăna 'allăhi midăda kalimătihi(14)."
Footnotes

(13) Adh-dhuhă refers to the time period after the Sun reveals itself and before noon. In this hadeeth it means that the Messenger returned at a time after the Sun had risen.

(14) Glory be to Allah, the number of his creations, his self-contentment, the weight of his Throne, the ink of his words. Explanation: The one that says this is expressing a want to say: Subhăna 'allăh (glory be to Allah) as many times as the creation of Allah is numerous, a number of times corresponding to his Self-Contentment, a number of times corresponding to the weight of Allah's Throne, and as many times as it could be written with the ink necessary for writing the words of Allah [see Surat 'Al-Kahf (#18) V.109]. Although one is not able to say Subhăna 'allăh that many times, Allah rewards him as having done so due to his aspiration and desire of the same.

He said: Those are for my Lord, so what is for me? He said: "Say: 'Allăhumma 'ighfirlee, wa 'irhamnee, wa 'ihdinee, wa `ăfinee, wa 'urzuqnee(17)."

(16) There is no 'ilah except Allah alone, no partner does He have, Allah is greater very great, all praise be to Allah plentifully, Glory be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds, there is neither might nor strength except by Allah [the `azeez and hakeem].
