There are many hadith of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) about the power of this phrase, “ SubhanAllahi wa bihamdihi “, which means, “Glory to Allah and praise Him.”
1. Whoever says “SubhanAllahi wa bihamdihi” a hundred times during the day, his sins are wiped away, even if they are like the foam of the sea.
[Sahih al-Bukhari; #7:168, Sahih Muslim; #4:2071]
2. Abu Dharr reported that the Prophet (s.a.w) said, “Shall I tell you the words that Allah loves the most?” I said: “Yes, tell me, O Messenger of Allah.” He said: “The words dearest to Allah are: subhanAllahi wa bihamdihi.
3. A palm tree is planted for the reciter [of the above] in Paradise. [at-Tirmidhi; 5:511, al-Hakim]
4. The Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) said: “Two words (subhanAllahi wa bihamdihi) are light on the tongue, weigh heavily in the balance, and are loved by the Most Merciful One.”
Allah is so forgiving and gives us countless avenues toearn our forgiveness. Today, let’s have this phrase –subhanAllahi wa bihamdihi – on our tongues, and let’s earn our forgiveness, and have entire groves of palm trees planted for us in Jannah, Insha’Allah.
