Hadith Explanation


Zikr Weighed


The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Two words which are light on the tongue but will weigh heavily in the Balance, and they are beloved to the Most Merciful: ‘Subhaan Allahi wa bi hamdihi, Subhaan Allah-il-Azeem’ (Allah is glorious and pure of all defects and all praise belongs to Him alone, Allah is glorious and pure of all defects and He is the Almighty).” [Bukhaari]

Deeds will be weighed in the Scales on the Day of Judgement. They will take on physical shapes and will be placed in the Balance. The remembrance of Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) in whatever form it took place (words, feelings of the heart, thoughts about Him, deeds in His obedience, or restraining oneself from His disobedience) all will take physical shapes and be weighed.

Say “Subhaan Allah” with conviction to feel its magic on your heart and in your life. “Subhaan Allah” means that Allah is free of any and all defects and wonderful beyond all imagination. If you believe it then words questioning Allah’s Will should never escape from your lips. For example, what does the phrase “untimely death” imply? It implies that Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) didn’t choose the right and best time in which to lift the person from this world! Behind this phrase is doubt in Allah’s wisdom and disbelief in His love for His creation being more than the love that human beings have for each other.

Scrutinize the words that you utter, and analyze the beliefs behind the words. Be sure not to say anything that negates your “Subhaan Allah”.
