Can you please give some information about the merit of the glorification / prayer of “Subhanallahi wa bihamdihi subhan-allahil azim (glory be to Allah, and praise to him, glory be to allah, the supreme)

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

Qabisa Ibn Mukhariq narrates: One day I went to the Prophet (pbuh). He asked “O Qabisa! What is the reason that gets you here?” I said: “My age got older, my bones got weaker, so I came to you so that you will teach me something that Allah will make me benefit from.” He said:

“O Qabisa! (If you do what I say), each rock, tree or land that you pass by will indeed ask forgiveness of Allah for you. O Qabisa!   If you say “SubhanAllahil-azim wa bi hamdihi” prayer three times after the salat al-fajr (morning prayer), you will be exempt from blindness, leprosy and paralysis. O Qabisa! Say, “O Allah! I ask you to give me from the grace of yours. Pour your treats on me, spread your mercy upon and send your blessing down on me” (Majmuatul-Ahzab, 1/132).

Abu Hurairah narrates: The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said,

"There are two statements that are light for the tongue to remember, heavy in the Scales and are dear to the Merciful: 'Subhan-Allahi wa bihamdihi, Subhan-Allahil Azim (Glory be to Allah and His is the praise, (and) Allah, the Greatest is free from imperfection)'." (al-Bukhari Book of Daawat, 65)

Abu Dharr al-Ghifari reported that the Prophet (pbuh) once said,

“Shall I inform you about the most beloved words in the eye of Allah? Verily, the most beloved words in the eye of Allah are: Glory belongs to Allah and praise is due to Him.”

The following is stated in another narration: The Prophet (pbuh) was asked what words were the best. the Prophet (pbuh) said:

Those which are chosen by Allah for His Angels and His servants (and the words are): SubhanAllahi wa bihamdihi” (Glory be to Allah and His is the praise). (Muslim Masajid, 17)

According to what Jabir narrates, the Prophet (pbuh) said,

“Whoever says “SubhanAllahi wa bihamdihi”, a date-palm is planted for him in Paradise.” (Tirmidhi, Book of Daawat, 60)

According to a narration from Abu Hurairah, the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said,

“Whoever says “Glory be to Allah and His is the praise”, all of his sins will be forgiven, even if they are as much as the foam of the sea.” (Bukhari, Daawat:27, Muslim, Dhikr:17)
