There has been transmitted many prophetic traditions regarding merits of this supplication. Among them is what was related by Ahmad, al-Hakim and al-Bayhaqi on the authority of Abu Sa`id al-Khudri who said that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace said: “Increase in the reciting of the everlasting righteous deeds: glorification, declaring the Divine Unity, praise, extolling and saying there is no power or might except with Allah the Exalted the Mighty.”

Among them is what was related by Ahmad, at-Tabarani, Ibn Shaheen and al-Hakim on the authority of Ibn Umar who said that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace said: “There is no man on the face of the earth who says: There is no deity except Allah; Allah is the greatest; glory be to Allah, and there is no power or might except with Allah the Exalted the Mighty, except that it becomes an atonement for his sins even if they were greater than the foam of the sea.”

Among them is what was related by Ahmad and Muslim on the authority of Samra ibn Jundub who said that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace said: “The most beloved of speech to Allah ta`ala are four: Glory be to Allah; all praises are due to Allah; there is no deity except Allah and Allah is the greatest. And whichever one you begin with it will not harm you.” Among them is what was related by Ahmad and ad-Diya on the authority of Abu Sa`id al-Khudri who said that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace said:

“Verily Allah has chosen four expressions from speech above all others: Glory be to Allah; all praises are due to Allah; there is no deity except Allah and Allah is the greatest. Whoever says: Glory be to Allah, there is recorded for him twenty good deeds and twenty evils are wiped away from him. Whoever says: Allah is the greatest gets the same recompense. Whoever says: There is no deity except Allah gets the same recompense. Whoever says: All praises are due to Allah the Lord of the worlds being sincere in his soul, there will be recorded for him thirty good deeds and thirty errors will by wiped away from him.”
