`Umarah bin Shabib As-Saba’i narrated that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:
لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لاَ شَرِيكَ لَهُ لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ يُحْيِي وَيُمِيتُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ
Lā ilāha illallāh, waḥdahu lā sharīka lahu, lahul-mulku wa lahul-ḥamdu, yuḥyī wa yumītu, wa huwa `alā kulli shai’in qadīr
[The meaning of which is, ‘none has the right to be worshipped but Allah, Alone, without partner, to Him belongs all that exists, and to Him belongs the praise, He gives life and causes death, and He is powerful over all things.’]
ten times at the end of Al-Maghrib,
- Allah shall send for him protectors to guard him from Shaitan until he reaches morning,
- Allah writes for him ten good deeds, Mujibat (Obligating, or necessitating, that is they necessitate that he shall enter Jannah; see Tuhfatul-Ahwadhi)
- He wipes from him ten of the destructive evil deeds,
- it shall be for him the equal of freeing ten believing slaves.” (Tirmidhi, see also Saheeh at-Targheeb, 473)
It only takes a few minutes to recite this athkar, yet it has huge rewards! Let us take up this sunnah after every maghrib to benefit from these rewards.
The Rewards don’t stop there; pass on this message to benefit someone else, and you could bag yourself double rewards!
Abu Mas’ud ‘Uqbah bin ‘Amr Al-Ansari Al-Badri (May Allah be pleased with him) reported, the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “Whoever guides someone to virtue will be rewarded equivalent to him who practices that good action.” (Muslim)
