The Verse which displays Allah’s power and strength


In the Hadith, which Verse of the Quran has been mentioned as the Verse of ‘Izz (عزّ)?



Imam Ahmad (rahimahullah) and other Muhaddithun have recorded the following Hadith:

Sayyiduna Mu’adh ibn Anas Al Juhani (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reported that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “The Verse of strength is:

الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي لَمْ يَتَّخِذْ وَلَدًا وَلَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ شَرِيكٌ فِي الْمُلْكِ وَلَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ وَلِيُّ مِنَ الذُّلِّ وَكَبِّرْهُ تَكْبِيرًا

‘Say, all praise belongs to Allah, Who has not taken a child, has no partner in kingdom, nor is He helpless to need a protector and Declare His greatness in abundance.’ (Surah Bani Israil, Verse: 111)

(Musnad Ahmad, vol. 3 pg. 439/440. Refer: Al Mughni ‘An Hamlil Asfar, Hadith: 1192 and Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 7 pg. 52 and vol. 10 pg. 96)


‘Izz or strength in this Hadith means: ‘The Verse that displays Allah’s strength’. Some commentators have also mentioned that whomsoever recites this Verse daily, will gain strength and courage.

(Refer: At Taysir of ‘Allamah Munawi, vol. 1 pg. 11 and Faydul Qadir, Hadith: 23)
