| As to those who turn (for friendship) to Allah, His Messenger, and the believers, it is the party of Allah that must certainly triumph. [Holy Quran 5.56]
Let Us Fear God
by Zakir Hussain
Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
"The uttering of the words: "Subhan-Allah (Allah is free from imperfection),
Al-hamdu lillah (all praise is due to Allah),
La ilaha illallah (there is no true god except Allah)
and Allahu Akbar (Allah is the Greatest)'
is dearer to me than anything over which the sun rises.''
Commentary: This Hadith hightlights the fact that the formulas
which mention the Praise and Glory of Allah,
His Majesty and Oneness are liked by the
Prophet (PBUH) more than anything in the world,
because this is one of the virtues which will survive
and will be rewarded, while the world and all that it has will perish.
