Allah (swt) loves His servants, loves those whom He created, and that love He gave to Sayyidina Muhammad (s) he dresses us from the dress of mercy, and they are not asking anything in return. They give, they give, there is no bargaining or going to a flea market or a vegetable market for that fruit I need. You will not only get your fruit, but the fruit of everyone there that Prophet (s) will divide among the Ummah. Allah (swt) loves His servants, and He knows we cannot do all the `ibaadah because it is hard on us. So Allah gave Ummat an-Nabi a Qudsi Hadith that the Prophet (s) related to the Sahaabah (r) and the Sahaabah (r) related to us. He said, “I don't want anything from you. I created you, so I forgive you. I only want that you love My Habeeb and that you love Me.”

So He gave them a du`a of two parts: whoever recites, observes, and respects that du`a will be given the rahmah that Allah gave to the Prophet (s) to be divided among his Ummah! Allahumma inni as-aluka asraar al-muhibeen. He gave them a simple du`a by which they will be saved from Hellfire, and they are already saved from Hellfire by the shafa`ah of the Prophet (s):

كلمتان خفيفتان على اللسان ثقيلتان فى الميزان حبيبتان إلى الرحمن سبحان الله و بحمده سبحان الله العظيم

There are two words that are very easy to say, yet very heavy on the Scale, most beloved to The Merciful, “SubhaanAllah wa bihamdihi subhaanAllahi ’l-`Azheem.” (Bukhari and Muslim)

Read that du`a and go to Paradise! Kalimatani khafifatani, “I am giving you two words that are light on the tongue, but very heavy on the Scale.” If you say them, you get the baraka of the Mizan, and whatever the Prophet (s) promised his Sahaabah (r) will be given to us! SubhaanAllah wa bihamdihi subhaanAllahi ’l-`Azheem, astaghfirullah. This will be given to all of you. “Recite it and you will get My Forgiveness.” So let us recite it now:

SubhaanAllah wa bihamdihi subhaanAllahi ’l-`Azheem, astaghfirullah.

SubhaanAllah wa bihamdihi subhaanAllahi ’l-`Azheem, astaghfirullah.

SubhaanAllah wa bihamdihi subhaanAllahi ’l-`Azheem, astaghfirullah.

SubhaanAllah wa bihamdihi subhaanAllahi ’l-`Azheem, astaghfirullah.

That is enough to take everyone to Paradise. If you want to take your family with you, count them and then recite this du`a that number of times. Respect Allah (swt), and respect His Creation. Always give respect to what Allah creates. Even an ant that is so small has to respect whom Allah respects. That is a creation from Allah (swt). The hikmah of it we don't know, Allah knows, but the du`a we know how to recite: SubhaanAllah wa bihamdihi subhaanAllahi ’l-`Azheem, astaghfirullah. That will be enough for us to go to Paradise.


Sayyidina `Ali (r) put all that was written in his time along with the Holy Qur’an and Dalaa’il al-Khayraat, and he told the Sahaabah (r), “All these books depend on two words: if you fulfill them you enter Paradise.” What are these two words? Makhaafatullah, fear of Allah. When you have makhaafatullah you don't do anything wrong, and if you don't have it you do everything. With all that, we say, “SubhaanAllah wa bihamdihi subhaanAllahi ’l-`Azheem, astaghfirullah.” The secret of maghfirah is in that du`a, the secret for the du`a to be accepted, the key, is this du`a.

Wa min Allahi 't-tawfeeq, bi hurmati 'l-Fatihah.

Inshaa-Allah every other day, or every day or every moment, we will be here inshaa-Allah, explaining something important for me and for you from the Prophet (s), the one who can hear everyone.

Wa min Allahi 't-tawfeeq, bi hurmati 'l-Fatihah. As-salaamu `alaykum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh.
