Dhikr August 19, 2007

Filed under: Dhikr,Hadith — musaafir @ 5:55 pm

One of the blessed dhikrs the Prophet (may peace and blessings be upon him) taught his wife Juwairiya was to say each of the following three times:

subhan’Allah ‘adada khalqihi (praising Allah the number of His creation)

subhan’Allah rida nafsihi (praising Allah until He is pleased)

subhan’Allah zinata ‘arshihi (praising Allah to the level of the beauty of His throne)

subhan’Allah midada kalimatihi  (praising Allah to the extent of His words).

If someone can help me transcribe the Arabic, that would be much appreciated (I’m terrible at typing in Arabic!).

JazakAllah Khair!

  1. Hafsa Says:

    Subhaan Allaah wa bi hamdih,
    ‘adada khalqihi, wa ridaa nafsihi, wazinata ‘arshihi,
    wa midaada kalimaatihi

    (Glory and praise be to Allaah,
    as much as the number of His creation,
    as much as pleases Him,
    as much as the weight of His Throne and
    as much as the ink of His words)

    [Shaheeh Muslim: Book 35, Number 6575]

  2. JazakAllah Khair..

    I believe someone asked our teacher if another narration of the Hadith included SubhanAllah wa bi hamdhi..
    and now we have the hadith! 🙂
