The Virtues of Tahmeed, Tahleel, and Tasbeeh (13)
He said to an A'rabee(15) "Say: Lã 'ilãha 'illa 'allãhu wahdahu lã shareeka lahu, 'allãhu 'akbaru kabeera, wal hamdu lil-lahi katheera, subhãna 'allahi rabbil `ãlameena, lã hawla wa lã quwwata 'illã bil-lãhil 'azeezil-hakeemi(16)."
He said: Those are for my Lord, so what is for me? He said: "Say: 'Allãhumma 'ighfirlee, wa 'irhamnee, wa 'ihdinee, wa `ãfinee, wa 'urzuqnee(17)."

(15) This term is a singular reference to unsettled Arabs of the desert: A Bedouin.

(16) There is no 'ilah except Allah alone, no partner does He have, Allah is greater very great, all praise be to Allah plentifully, Glory be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds, there is neither might nor strength except by Allah [the `azeez and hakeem].

(17) O' my 'ilãh forgive me, have mercy upon me, guide me, keep me safe [from afflictions], and provide for me.


Reported by Muslim. Al-Albãni included this hadeeth in The Authentic of Good Sayings as #13.
