The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

لَااِلٰهَ اِلاَّالله اَلْمَلِكُ الْحَقُّ الْمُبِينُ مُحَمَّدٌ رَسُولُ اللهِ صَادِقُ الْوَعْدِ اْلاَمِين  
"La ilaha illallahul malikul haqqul mubin, Muhammadun rasulullahi sadiqul wa’dil amin."

"There is no god but Almighty Allah, the King, the Clear Truth. Muhammad (pbuh), who is the messenger of Allah, fulfils his promises and is trustworthy."

We have not been able to find a hadith narration about the full statement.

However, as for the first part of the statement لَااِلٰهَ اِلاَّالله اَلْمَلِكُ الْحَقُّ الْمُبِينُ, it is stated that Jibril (pbuh) said to the Prophet:

“O Muhammad! If a person from your ummah says, لَااِلٰهَ اِلاَّالله اَلْمَلِكُ الْحَقُّ الْمُبِينُ La ilaha illallahul malikul haqqul mubin a hundred times a day, it will be a means of salvation from poverty for him, will be his friend when he is alone in the grave, will be a means of acquiring wealth, and will knock on the door of Paradise.” (Zabidi, Ithaf, 5/131; Kanzul-Ummal, no: 5058)

However, it is stated that Fadl b. Ghanim, who is included in the chain of narrators of that hadith is, weak. (see Kanzul-Ummal, ibid)

Nevertheless, it will be nice to read that statement with the intention of praising Allah and His Messenger, praying to Allah and begging, and being saved from afflictions and misfortunes.

As a matter of fact, people like Muhyiddin Ibnul-Arabi read that supplication in order to drive afflictions and misfortunes and to be protected from them. (Majmuatul-Ahzab wa Awrad, Beirut, p. 337-338; Qiladatul-Jawahir, Beirut, 1971, p. 250)
