Revive a Sunnah

In the name of Allah
Revive a Sunnah: Invocation for Entering A Market Place


One million virtues + One million sins forgiven + One million grades raised 

لا إلهَ إلاّ اللّه وحدَهُ لا شريكَ لهُ، لهُ المُلْـكُ ولهُ الحَمْـد، يُحْيـي وَيُميـتُ  وَهُوَ حَيٌّ لا يَمُـوت، بِيَـدِهِ الْخَـيْرُ وَهوَ عَلىَ كلّ شيءٍ قَدِيرٌ

Laa ‘ilaaha ‘illallaahu wahdahu laa shareeka lahu, lahul-mulku wa lahul-hamdu, yuhyee wa yumeetu, wa Huwa hayyun laa yamootu, biyadihil-khayru, wa Huwa ‘alaa kulli shay’in Qadeer.

None has the right to be worshiped but Allah alone, Who has no partner. His is the dominion and His is the praise. He brings life and He causes death, and He is living and does not die. In His Hand is all good, and He is Able to do all things.

It is stated in the hadith that if a person reads the above du’aa in the market place, Allaah writes ten lakh rewards for him and forgives ten lakh sins and raises his status by ten lakh, and a house is prepared for him in Jannah.

N.B. one lakh = 100,000 (Tirmidhi) Note: Whoever recites this du’aa [in the market place], Allaah will reward him with a million virtues (hasanah), forgive a million of his sins and elevate his rank by a million

[Reference: At-Tirmithi 5/291, and Al-Hakim 1/538. Al-Albani graded it good in Sahih Ibn Majah 2/21 and Sahih At-Tirmithi 3/152]

Revive a Sunnah: Expression most beloved to Allah


Abu Dharr (radi Allahu anhu) reported: The Messenger of Allah (sall Allaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) said to me, “Shall I tell you the expression that is most loved by Allah?” It is `Subhan-Allahi wa bihamdihi’ (Allah is free from imperfection and His is the praise)’.” [Muslim].

سُبْحَان اللَّهِ وَبِحَمْدِهِ

Abu Hurairah (radi Allahu anhu) reported: The Messenger of Allah (sall Allaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) said, “He who recites in the morning and in the evening the statement: `Subhan-Allahi wa bihamdihi (Allah is free from imperfection and I begin with praising Him)’ one hundred times, will not be surpassed on the Day of Resurrection by anyone with better deeds than one who utters the same words or utters more of these words.” [Muslim].

Expression that is most loved by Allah

Abu Dharr (radi Allahu anhu) reported: The Messenger of Allah (sall Allaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) said to me, “Shall I tell you the expression that is most loved by Allah?” It is `Subhan-Allahi wa bihamdihi’ (Allah is free from imperfection and His is the praise)’.”[Sahih Muslim].

Obliterating Sins of the extent of the foam of the ocean

Abu Hurairah (radi Allahu anhu) reported: The Messenger of Allah (sall Allaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) said, “And he who utters: `Subhan-Allahi wa bihamdihi (Allah is free from imperfection and His is the praise)’ one hundred times a day, his sins will be obliterated even if they are equal to the extent of the foam of the ocean.’‘[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Commentary: Here sins mean minor sins and those which do not relate to the rights of people.

A Palm-tree will be planted in Jannah

Jabir (radi Allahu anhu) reported: The Prophet (sall Allaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) said, “For him who says: `Subhan-Allahi wa bi hamdihi (Allah is free from imperfection, and I begin with praising Him, and to Him),’ a palm-tree will be planted in Jannah.”[At-Tirmidhi].

Commentary: Jannah is so vast that we cannot even imagine its vastness. The planting of trees in return for the Praise and Glorification of Allah is, therefore, neither something difficult nor surprising. So, there should not be any hesitation in accepting it as a fact. Some people take it is as a metaphor for a plentiful reward.

Revive a Sunnah: Dua during Recitation


Hudhayfah (radi Allahu anhu) narrated that,” Whenever the Prophet (sall Allaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) read a verse about Allah’s punishment, he would seek refuge in Allah. And whenever He read a verse mentioning Allah’s mercy, he would ask Allah for His mercy. Hudhayfah said, “Whenever the Prophet (sall Allaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) bowed he would say, “Subhana Rabbil Atheem.” and when He prostrated He’d say ,”Subhana Rabbil ‘Ala.”
Collected by Ahmed 6/ 24 , Abu Dawud 873, and others. Graded as being Hasan by Al-Albani

Benefits for this topic:

Shaykh Abdul Azeez bin Baz (raheemahullah) said:

It’s Sunnah for every muslim who reads the Quran during prayer or elsewhere to ask Allah for His bounty at the verses of mercy. 

And when the Muslim reads a verse mentioning Allah’s punishment, he seeks refuge from the Hell-fire. Furthermore when a Muslim reads an ayah that deems Allah above something he declares it. He declares it by saying, “Subhanahu wa Ta’ala.”

It’s recommended for every Muslim who reads: Is not Allah the Best of judges? [At-tin 8] to say,” Indeed! I believe that to be true.” Moreover when he reads, “Is not He (Allah Who does that), Able to give life to the dead? (Yes! He is Able to do all things).[ Al-Qiyamah 40], he says, “Indeed!: I bear witness to this.” The servant should say, “I believe in Allah.” when he reads,” Then in what statement after this (the Qur’an) will they believe? [ Al-Mursaalat 50].

After the slave recites the verse, “Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinns and men) deny? [ Ar-Rahman 13] He says, “We don’t deny any verses from our Lord. And after reading ,”Glorify the Name of your Lord, the Most High,”[Al-A’la 1], he says,” Subhana Rabbil ‘Ala”

All of these acts are recommended for the Imam, followers , and individual reciting the Quran. These words are dua, and dua is wanted from the Muslim. This resembles the saying, “ Ameen” after Fatihah: and Ameen should be said in prayer and elsewhere after Fatiha.[ Majmu’ Fataawa Bin Baz vol 26 page 62-63

Revive a Sunnah: Du'a of Forgiveness in Tashahhud


"The Messenger of Allah (sall Allaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) entered the masjid and there was a man who was finishing his salah and was reciting the tashahhud. (In the tashahhud [and before tasleem]), he recited:

اللَّهمَّ إنِّي أسألُكَ يا اللَّهُ الأحدُ الصَّمدُ الَّذي لم يلِد ولم يولَد ولم يكن لهُ كُفوًا أحدٌ أن تغفرَ لي ذنوبي إنَّكَ أنتَ الغفورُ الرَّحيمُ

"Allahumma inni as'aluka ya Allahu al-Ahadus Samad, Alladhi lam yalid wa lam yulad, wa lamya kunlahu kufuwan ahad, an-taghfirali dhunoobi, innaka antal-Ghafoorur-Raheem"

"O Allah, I ask of You, O Allah, as You are the One, the Only, the Self-Sufficient Master, Who begets not nor was He begotten, and there is None equal or comparable to Him, forgive me my sins, for You are the Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful."

The Messenger of Allah (sall Allaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) (upon hearing his du'a) said (thrice), "He has been forgiven, he has been forgiven, has been forgiven."

[Sunan Abi Daw'ud, 985' An-Nasaa'i, 1301 and others. Al-Albani said it was saheeh upon the condition of Imam Muslim (Sifatus-Salah, 3/1015)]


There are numerous du'a that people use in their tashahhud. Here we have a most beautiful du'a, which the Prophet (sall Allaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) himself profoundly vouched for (the person he heard reading it). It thus comes highly recommended we do the same, or at least alternate between this and other established du'a we may know.

Revive a Sunnah: Prostration of Gratitude - Sujood ash-Shukr


Abu Bakra (radi Allahu anhu) narrated: When happiness about something reached the Prophet (sall Allaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) or good news, He (sall Allaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) would prostrate to Allah to show thankfulness.”

Collected by Abu Dawud, 2776; Al-Albani classed it Saheeh.


1. Ibn Al-Qayyim said, “It’s from the guidance of the Prophet (sall Allaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) to offer a prostration of thanks to Allah whenever a blessing is granted or a trial and affliction is lifted. [Zaad al Maad, 1/270]

2. The four Imams considered Sujood ash-Shukr as being Sunnah.

- Abu Bakr As-Siddiq (radi Allahu anhu) prostrated when Musayleemah the liar was killed.

- Ka’b ibn Malik (radi Allahu anhu) prostrated when Allah forgave him.

3. Ibn Taymiyyah said, Purification isn’t a condition to offer Sujudus Shukr. This is derived from the verse about Firawn’s magicians who prostrated after believing in Allah. They didn’t have Wudu prior to their belief. Here we understand that prostration is what Allah loves and is pleased with. Legislation for those before us is legislation for us as long as there’s no contradiction between the two.

4. A person can offer Sujood ash-Shukr whether standing or not.

5. Takbeer: saying “Allahu Akbar” isn’t mentioned that the Prophet (sall Allaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) did it before prostrating.

6. There is no specific Dhikr or supplication for Sujood ash-Shukr. The person should thank Allah, ask forgiveness, and make du'a while prostrating.
