The Excellence of the Remembrance of Allah
Allah, the Exalted, says:
And the remembering (praising) of (you by) Allah (in front of the angels) is greater indeed [than your
remembering (praising) of Allah in prayers]
'' (29:45)
Therefore remember Me (by praying, glorifying). I will remember you
.'' (2:152)
And remember your Rubb by your tongue and within yourself, humbly and with fear and without loudness
in words, in the mornings and in the afternoons, and be not of those who are neglectful.
'' (7:205)
And remember Allah much, that you may be successful
.'' (62:10)
Verily, the Muslims (those who submit to Allah in Islam) men and women... (up to)... And the men and the
women who remember Allah much with their hearts and tongues. Allah has prepared for them forgiveness
and a great reward (i.e., Jannah).
'' (33:35)
O you who believe! Remember Allah with much remembrance. And glorify His Praises morning and
afternoon [the early morning (Fajr) and `Asr prayers].
'' (33:41,42)

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
There are
two statements that are light for the tongue to remember, heavy in the Scales and are dear to the Merciful: `Subhan-
Allahi wa bihamdihi, Subhan-Allahil-Azim [Glory be to Allah and His is the praise, (and) Allah, the Greatest is free
from imperfection)
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
This Hadith affirms that man's actions carry weight. On the Day of Judgement, his actions will be
cast into the Balance. At that time Allah will endow these actions with weight, or according to some scholars, those
records which register man's actions will be weighed. This is quite possible for the reason that Almighty Allah is
Capable of weighing things without even their physical form. This discussion apart, when actions will be cast into
the Balance, the formula mentioned in the Hadith, the utterance of which is very easy, will prove weighty. Every
Muslim should make it a practice to repeat them frequently.

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
The uttering
of the words: "Subhan-Allah (Allah is free from imperfection), Al-hamdu lillah (all praise is due to Allah), La ilaha
illallah (there is no true god except Allah) and Allahu Akbar (Allah is the Greatest)' is dearer to me than anything
over which the sun rises
This Hadith hightlights the fact that the formulas which mention the Praise and Glory of Allah, His
Majesty and Oneness are liked by the Prophet (PBUH) more than anything in the world, because this is one of the
virtues which will survive and will be rewarded, while the world and all that it has will perish.
