With Respect to Allah's Bounties upon Man (162)
Allah The Exalted said with respect to the story of the two men: "Why do you not, when you enter into your garded say: Mã shã'a 'allãhu lã quwwata 'illã bil-lãhi"(180)
It is reported byif the Prophet that if he saw something he liked he would say 'Al-hamdu lil-lãhi 'allathee bini`matihi tatimmus-sãlihãtu,(181)
and if he saw something he disliked he would say, 'Al-hamdu lil-lãhi 'alã kulli hãlin(182).

(180) 'Allah's Will [be done]! There is no strength but in Allah! This is from Surat 'Al-Kahf (#18) V. 39.

(181) All praise is to Allah, by the Grace of Whom all good things are fulfilled.

(182) All praise is to Allah upon every circumstance.


Al-Albãni said in his Saheeh Al-Jãmi'i 'As-Sagheeri wa Ziyãdatihi that it was sound, and that it was reported by Ibn Mãjah, by way of `Aishata. The supplication in this hadeeth is identical to #113 in The Authentic of Good Sayings; however the chain of narration for this hadeeth is more reliable according to Al-Albãni.
