Get your supplications answered

عَنْ أَنَسِ بْنِ مَالِكٍ رَضِيَ الله عَنْهُ ‏قَالَ: جَاءَتْ أُمُّ سُلَيْمٍ إِلَى النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ فَقَالَتْ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ عَلِّمْنِي كَلِمَاتٍ أَدْعُو بِهِنَّ قَالَ: تُسَبِّحِينَ اللَّهَ عَشْرًا وَتَحْمَدِينَهُ عَشْرًا وَتُكَبِّرِينَهُ عَشْرًا ثُمَّ سَلِي حَاجَتَكِ فَإِنَّهُ يَقُولُ قَدْ فَعَلْتُ قَدْ فَعَلْ

أخرجه أحمد  وحسنه الألباني

On the authority of Anas ibn Malik [Radi Allahu anhu] who said, Umm Sulaim came to the Prophet صلىاللهعليهوسلم and said, O Messenger of Allah, teach me some words that I can supplicate with. He responded,

Glorify Allah ten times, and praise Allah ten times, and magnify Allah ten times then ask for your need, surely Allah will say, “Verily, I have done it.Verily, I have done it.”

[Narrated by Ahmad and declared ‘Good’ by Al-Albani]

Vocabulary from the Hadtih

تُسَبِّحِينَ – glorify Allah, meaning say, “subhan Allah”

تَحْمَدِينَهُ – praise Allah, meaning say, “Alhamdlillah”

تُكَبِّرِينَهُ – magnify Allah, meaning say, “Allahu Akbar”

حَاجَتَكِ – your need

When we supplicate to Allah, we should begin by praising Him, glorifying Him and magnifying His Greatness.

SubhanAllah means: Allah is removed from any imperfection or impurity or from anything derogatory from His glory.

Alhamdulillah means: The most perfect praise is only for Allah.

Allahu Akbar means: Allah is Greater, and He is Greater than everything else.
