[Allah is indeed the Greatest, all praises are due to Him, many praises, and all glory is His alone, morning and evening.]
Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) said: Who is the one who said these words? A person from the crowd said: It is me O Messenger of Allah. The Prophet said: They amazed me!
