Simple Deed with Great Reward: Dhikr

easy deed with great reward

These a simple deed that gains great reward from Allah. That is doing dhikr. There are so many kind of dhikr that we can practice them. But, one dhikr is special. That is by saying : Subhan Allahi wa bi-hamdihi; Subhan Allahi-l-‘Adhim.

A hadith from Abu Huraira (may Allah blesses him), that the Prophet ﷺ says,

كَلِمَتَانِ خَفِيفَتَانِ عَلَى اللِّسَانِ، ثَقِيلَتَانِ فِي الْمِيزَانِ، حَبِيبَتَانِ إِلَى الرَّحْمَنِ، سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ الْعَظِيمِ، سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ وَبِحَمْدِهِ

“(The following are) two words (sentences or utterances) that are very easy for the tongue to say, and very heavy in the mizan (scale of reward), and most beloved to the Gracious Almighty (And they are):

سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ وَبِحَمْدِهِ، سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ الْعَظِيمِ

“Subhan Allahi wa bi-hamdihi; Subhan Allahi-l-‘Adhim” [Sahih al-Bukhari].

Few simple words, but the Prophet ﷺ it’s very heavy in the mizan. You can say these word when walking, working, driving, waiting. Wherever and whenever.
