How to Erase 2500 Sins in 5 minutes!

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Amr (may Allaah be pleased with him) who said: “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘There are two qualities, no Muslim man acquires them but he will enter Paradise, and they are simple and easy. He should glorify Allaah (say Subhaan Allaah) ten times immediately after each prayer, and praise Him (say Al-hamdu Lillaah) ten times and magnify Him (say Allaahu akbar) ten times.’

I saw the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) counting this on his fingers. He said: ‘That makes one hundred and fifty on the tongue, and one thousand five hundred (hasanaat) in the scales.

[Translator’s note: each of three phrases repeated ten times makes thirty; multiplied by the number of daily prayers, which is five, makes one hundred and fifty. Each of these good deeds of the tongue will be rewarded with ten hasanaat which will be added to the total of good deeds to be weighed in the balance or scales on the Day of Judgement].

When you go to bed, glorify Him and praise Him and magnify Him one hundred times: that will be one hundred on the tongue and a thousand in the scales. Who among you does two thousand and five hundred sayi’aat (bad deeds) in one day?’ They said: ‘How could we not count (our sins)?’ He said: ‘The Shaytaan comes to any one of you whilst he is praying and says, Remember this, remember that, until he finishes his prayer and does not do (this dhikr), or he comes to him when he is lying down and makes him sleepy, until he falls asleep (without doing this dhikr).’” (Abu ‘Eesaa said: This is a hasan saheeh hadeeth. Sunan al-Tirmidhi, 3332).

**Points of Benefit**

--The Sahabaa were shocked that this reward was immense and yet so easy, however the challenge lies in implementation.

--Notice that it takes less than a minute to say the adkaar after the Prayers, and a few minutes to say them before you sleep.

--The Prophet [s] is pointing out that it is rare a person commits that many sins a day and theoretically if it happens, very few people do that everyday.

--Net Balance: Ensure everyday your Good deeds outweigh your Bad deeds.

---Teach your kids to say adkaar 10x each after the salah, both short attention spans and busy schedules can handle it.


  1. Assalam Alaikum Light of Islam!,

    Allah is so kind and merciful! :,) There's also the option of 33 subhanallah's, 33 alhamdulillah's and 34 Allahu Akbar's (and 10 Laa ilaha ilallah's). Sadly, we miss out on these easy deeds by rushing away as soon as the prayer's done.

    btw, ur new background looks awesome! <3

  2. Wa Alakyam Salaam,
    Thank you habibti =). Lol I get bored and change it around. But yeah it's amazing how at times we think we have to do something hard to get a big reward. =) And we dismiss the actions/sayings that only take a few minutes. SubhanAllah. I heard about that one too! There a number of different descriptions of the dhikr after salaah. But the rewards of all of them are great. One hadith that I love is this one,

    “Whoever glorifies Allaah (says Subhaan Allaah) thirty-three times immediately after each prayer, and praises Allaah (says Al-hamdu Lillaah) thirty-three times, and magnifies Allaah (says Allaahu akbar) thirty-three times, this makes ninety-nine, then to complete one hundred says Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah wahdahu laa shareeka lahu, lahu’l-mulk wa lahu’l-hamd wa huwa ‘ala kulli shay’in qadeer (There is no god except Allaah Alone, with no partner, His is the power and His is the praise, and He is Able to do all things) – his sins will be forgiven even if they are like the foam of the sea.” (Reported by Muslim, 939).

    muchOo love <3 salaam.
