A form of dhikr more beloved to Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) than the entire world

Question

Is this narration authentic?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “The uttering of these words; ‘Hallowed be Allah, all praise is due to Allah, there is no Deity but Allah and Allah is the Greatest’

is dearer to me than anything over which the sun rises [i.e. the entire world].”

 

Answer

Imam Muslim (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith in his Sahih. The Hadith is therefore authentic.

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2695)

 

The Arabic text of these words are:

سُبْحَانَ اللهِ وَالْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ وَلَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ وَاللهُ أَكْبَرُ

Subhanallahi wal hamdulillahi wa la ila-ha illallahu wallahu akbaru

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
