Whoever says ten times immediately after finishing the Fajr (Dawn) Payer

On the authority of Abu Dharr (radiAllahu anhu), that the Prophet (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam) said –

“Whoever says ten times immediately after finishing the Fajr (Dawn) Payer, before moving from his place or talking to anyone,

“laa ilaaha illallaahu wahdahu laa shareeka lahu, lahul mulku wa lahul hamdu yuhyee wa yumeetu wa huwa alaa kulli shay’in qadeer – [ none has the right to be worshipped except Allaah alone having no partner, sovereignty is His and all praise is for Him and He brings life and He causes death and He has full power over everything,]”

ten good deeds will be recorded for him, ten sins will be eliminated from him, he will be upgraded ten degrees (in reward), he will be safeguarded from all kinds of harm all that day, he will be guarded against shaytan and no sin can overtake him on that day (and nullify his good deeds) except associating others in worship with Allaah. (At Tirmidhi no.3484 [5/515])

At-Tirmidhi commented on this hadeeth saying, “This is a hasan, saheeh hadeeth (i.e a good and authentic hadeeth)”.

Likewise it is an act of Sunnah to say dhikr ten times straight after Magrib salah too, according to a hadith related by Imaam Ahmad Hanbal (rahimahullah) on the authority of Umm Salamah (radiAllahu anha), hadith number 26430. Also stated in Sahih Ibn Hibban no. 2023.

They will suffice as a protection against everything

They will suffice him (as a protection) against everything

{ Qul huwa Allahu Ahad…}        [Al-Ikhlas]
{ Qul auoodhu bi Rabbi alFalaq…..}  [Al-Falaq]
{ Qul auoodhu bi Rabbi alNnas…..}   [An-Nas]

Whoever recites these three times in the morning and in the evening, they will suffice him (as a protection) against everything.

The hadith was reported by Abu Dawood 4/322, and At-Tirmidhi 5/567. See Al-Albanee’s Saheeh At-Tirmidhi 3/182

Protect yourself from Shytan for the rest of the Day

When the Messenger of Allaah -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam-would enter the Masjid he would say:

أَعُوذُ بِاللَّهِ الْعَظِيمِ وَبِوَجْهِهِ الْكَرِيمِ وَسُلْطَانِهِ الْقَدِيمِ مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ الرَّجِيمِ

– I seek refuge with Allaah The Supreme and with His Noble Face, and His eternal authority from the accursed shaytaan –

A’outhu bil-lahil ‘atheem, wa bi-wajhihil-kareem, wa bi-sultanihil-qadeem min ‘ash-shayanir-rajeemi

Then he said: if he says this supplication then the shaytaan says: this person has been protected from me for the rest of the day.

Shaytan would move aside from him..

Reference: Have Tawakkul on Allah when leaving Home

Reported by Abu dawood, An-Nisã’ee , and At-Tirmithi and he said it was comely-sound. Al-Albãni said it is as At-Tirmithi said; rather, he said, it is sound, and he said that Ibn Hibbãn also reported it in his Saheeh. Al-Albãni included this hadeeth in The Authentic of Good Sayings as #44.

Freeing Ten Slaves and Protection from Shytaan

The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said :

Whoever says:

لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَه،ُ لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْد،ُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ

La ilaha ‘illa Allaahu wahdahu la shareeka lahu, lahul mulku wa lahul hamdu wa huwa ala kulli shayin qadeer

There is none worthy of worship in truth except Allaah Alone, He has no partners, to Him belongs the Dominion and for Him is all praise, and He is capable of all things.’


One hundred times in one day, then it is equivalent to him

  • Freeing ten slaves,
  • A hundred good deeds are written for him,
  • A hundred bad deeds are erased,
  • It is a protection for him against shaytaan during that day until the evening, and
  • No one comes with a better deed than him except for the man who does more actions than him.
