Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said:
Two words are light for the tongue but heavy in the scale and are dear to the Merciful: Glory be to Allah and His is the praise, and Glory be to Allah, the Incomparably Great.
(Reported by Al-Bukhari and Muslim)
- It is recommended to say the remembrances of Allah which expiate sins and add to a believer's scale of good deeds.
- These remembrances (mentioned by the Holy Prophet) are better for a Muslim because they make him always with Allah and protect him from the Devils' insinuations and wicked talk.
