Easy Dhikr After Salaah


1 – Saying: Subhaan Allaah (10x), al-Hamdulillaah (10x), Allaahu akbar (10x) after the prayer.

سُبْحَانَ اللهِ – الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ – اللهُ أَكْبَرُ
Something very easy that few people do that would wipe away 2500 sins a day (combined with one other act)!

On the authority of ‘Abdullaah ibn ‘Amr ibn al-‘Aas (may Allaah be pleased with him and his father), the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ‘alayhe wa sallam) said:

“There are two traits that no Muslim servant guards over except that he will enter Paradise (by way of them) – Nay, they are so easy, yet those who do them are few – :

– (1) Glorifying Allaah (saying “Subhaan Allaah”) after each prayer ten times, praising Him (saying “al-Hamdulillaah”) ten times, and declaring His Greatness (saying “Allaahu akbar”) ten times – that is 150 on the tongue and 1500 in the Scale –

– (2) Declaring Allaah’s Greatness (saying “Allaahu akbar”) 34 times when laying down, praising Him (saying “al-Hamdulillaah”) 33 times, and glorifying Him (saying “subhaan Allaah”) 33 times – that is 100 on the tongue and 1000 in the Scale –

And which one of you does 2500 bad deeds in one day?!”

Collected by Ahmad, the four compilers of the Sunan, and others.

Al-Albaanee called it “saheeh” in Saheeh al-Jaami’ (#3230).

2 – Saying “Astaghfirullaah” (3x), and “Allaahumma antas-Salaamu wa minkas-Salaamu tabaarakta thal-Jalaali wal-Ikraam”
أَسْتَغْفِرُ اللهَ أَسْتَغْفِرُ اللهَ أَسْتَغْفِرُ اللهَ

اللهُمَّ أَنْتَ السَّلاَمُ وَمِنْكَ السَّلاَمُ تَبَارَكْتَ ذَا الْجَلاَلِ وَالإِكْرَامِ
On the authority of Thowbaan (may Allaah be pleased with him): The Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ‘alayhe wa sallam) used to seek Allaah’s Forgiveness (saying “Astaghfirullaah”) three times when finishing his prayer, and then he would say:

“Allaahumma antas-Salaamu wa minkas-Salaamu tabaarakta thal-Jalaali wal-Ikraam” (“O Allaah you are as-Salaam – the One who grants peace – and from You alone is peace, blessed be You, O Possessor of Majesty and Grace!”)

It was collected by Muslim in his Saheeh (#591).

3 – “Allaahumma a’in-nee ‘alaa thikrika wa shukrika wa husni ‘ebaadatika”
اللهُمَّ أَعِنِّي عَلَى ذِكْرِكَ وَشُكْرِكَ وَحُسْنِ عِبَادَتِكَ

Mu’aath ibn Jabal (may Allaah be pleased with him) said:  One day, the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhe wa sallam) took my hand and said:

“O Mu’aath!  Verily I love you!”

Mu’aath replied, “(I would ransom) my father for you, and my mother, O Messenger of Allaah!  And I love you!”

The Messenger of Allaah then said:

“I advise you – O Mu’aath – not to leave off saying after each prayer: Allaahumma a’in-nee ‘alaa thikrika wa shukrika wa husni ‘ebaadatika (“O Allaah!  Help me to remember you, thank you, and worship you in a good way!”)”

It was collected by Ahmad, Aboo Daawood, al-Haakim and others.  It was authenticated by al-Haakim in al-Mustadrak (1012), and also by al-Albaanee in Saheeh Sunan Abee Daawood (1362).

This hadeeth is just beautiful!

From the most important benefits of it: that true love for the sake of Allaah (may Allaah bless us with it) causes those who love each other to advise each other with things that please Allaah.

    “Something very easy that few people do that would wipe away 2500 sins a day **(combined with one other act)!”

    Explain the other act. Does this mean the thikr plus another good deed? Sorry I’m confused about that part.
