Praise be to You..


Abdullah ibn Mushabbib al-Qahtāni

The greatest trait in the believers is that they praise their Lord constantly and at both good and hard times, as they know that the actions of Allah Almighty are all wise and good for them.

The Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) is authentically reported to have said:

“If a man’s child dies, Allah Almighty asks His angels: ‘Have you taken the soul of My servant’s child?’ They reply in the affirmative. He then asks: ‘Have you taken the fruit of his heart?’ They reply in the affirmative. Then He asks: ‘What did My servant say?’ They say: ‘He praised You and said: We belong to Allah and to Him we shall return.Thereupon, Allah says: ‘Build a house for My servant in Paradise and name it the House of Praise.’”

[Narrated by Al-Tirmidhi]

Hence, one of the best forms of Dhikr is to say: Alhamdulillāh (Praise be to Allah).

Allah Almighty says:

{...and glorify the praise of your Lord before sunrise and before sunset.}

[Surat Qāf: 39]

The Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) is authentically reported to have said:

“Whoever says: Subhānallāh wa bihamdih (Glory be to Allah and praise be to Him) one hundred times a day, his sins will be erased even if they were as much as the foam of the sea.”

[Narrated by Al-Bukhāri and Muslim]

The Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) was asked:

“Which speech is the best?” He said: “What Allah chose for His angels or His servants: Subhānallāh wa bihamdih (Glory be to Allah and praise be to Him).”

[Narrated by Muslim]

Praise can be expressed by the tongue, within the heart, and through the body organs.

The Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) said

:“The best servants of Allah on the Day of Judgment will be those who praise Him a lot.”

[Narrated by Al-Tabarāni in Al -Mu‘jam al-Kabīr; Sahīh (authentic)]

Praise be to You, our Lord, praise that is good and so great that it fills the heavens and the earth and all that it contains.

Praise be to You, eternal and blessed.

The sea has a limit, but Your praise is limitless.

Praise be to You, the Owner of glory and highness.

He who praises You with gratitude is indeed grateful.

O Allah, to You praise is due as befits the glory of Your Face and the greatness of Your might.
