The reward on ‘Eidul Fitr for the one who completes the duties of the month of Ramadan

Question

I heard various scholars in our country citing a narration during the ‘Eidul Fitr sermon. The Hadith roughly states our Most Gracious Master, Allah Ta’ala, asking the angels what the reward is for the worker who completed his work. The angels reply that the worker should be fully paid. Then Our Master says that His servants, male and female, have fulfilled the obligation upon them and gone out for invocations and He swears by His honour, beauty, nobility, majesty and high status that He would most certainly respond to them. Then Our Master tells His servants to go back as He has forgiven them and replaced their evil deeds with good.

A du’a to recite four times in the morning or evening

Question

Whoever says in the morning, “O Allah, we bear witness to you and we bear witness to the bearers of You Throne and Your angels and all Your creation. You are Allah. There is no god but You, alone with no partner and Muhammad is your slave and Messenger”

Through that, Allah will free a quarter of him from the Fire on that day. If someone says it twice, Allah will free half of him from the Fire. If he says it four times, Allah will free him completely from the Fire on that day.'”
