Keys to happiness:

Abdullah ibn Mushabbib al-Qahtāni

Glorification of Allah Almighty is one of the lasting good things.

Glorification of Allah comforts His obedient servants and provides refuge for the fearful among them, as they know that the One Whom they glorify and exalt above any imperfection or defect is their refuge at times of hardship, their companion in their loneliness, and their supporter when they are few and weak.

How could the supplications of those who glorify Allah a lot not be answered while they are the ones who know their Lord at times of ease?! How come He does not know them at times of hardship?!

ake Yūnus (Jonah) (peace be upon him) as an example. Allah Almighty says about him:

{And had he not been of those who glorify Allah,He would have surely remained in its belly till the Day of Resurrection.}

[Surat as -Sāffāt: 143-144] 

Ibn ‘Abbās (may Allah be pleased with him and his father) said:

“Fish in the sea would at times stay still, but he would not take rest from glorification of Allah. Frogs would keep silent, but he would continue to mention Allah Almighty.”

Al-Hasan said:

“Yūnus (Jonah) did not offer prayer in the belly of the whale, yet the good deeds he had performed at the time of ease were the reason Allah took care of him at the time of affliction.”

Al-Karaji said:

“This indicates that glorification of Allah and proclaiming His Oneness remove anguish and save one from distress and afflictions.” 

Areported citation reads:

“A righteous person gets recognized in heaven.” 

This is because glorification of Allah is a righteous act and Allah Almighty says:

{...To Him ascends good speech...}

[Surat Fātir: 10]

With glorification, a person is given sustenance. In Al-Adab Al-Mufrad, the Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) said:

“...And ‘subhānallāh wa bihamdih (glory be to Allah and praise be to Him)’; that is the prayer of everything, and with it everything is given sustenance.”
