Best Dhikr after Fajr Prayer


Virtue: Praise of Allah equal to the number of his creation and the weight of His throne

Juwairiyah (radhi Allaahu anha), the wife of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be Upon Him) reported that one day the Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him), left her apartment in the morning as she was busy observing her dawn prayer in her place of worship. He came back in the forenoon and she was still sitting there.

The Prophet, peace be upon him, said to her, “You have been in the same place since I left you?” She said, “Yes.” Thereupon the Prophet, peace be upon him, said, “I recited four words three times after I left you and if these were to be weighed against what you have recited since morning these would outweigh them are:

Subhaanallaahi wa bihamdihi, ‘Adada khalqihi wa ridhaa nafsihi, wa zinata ‘arshihi, wa midaada kalimaatihi.

How perfect Allah is and I praise Him by the number of His creation and His pleasure, and by the weight of His throne, and the ink of His words.
