14. In Sunan Abu Daw’oud:
From its benefits is that whoever says it seven times in the morning and the evening, Allah will suffice for him all of his important affairs related to his worldly matters and to his religious matters (i.e. the Hereafter).
15. In Sunan Abu Daw’oud and Other Collections:
From its benefits is that whoever says it three times in the morning and three times in the evening nothing will harm him.
16. In Sunan Abu Daw’oud, Musnad Imam Ahmad and in other collections:
From its benefits is that whoever reads this supplication three times in the morning and in the evening, has the right that Allah suffices him on the Day of Standing (i.e. the Day of Resurrection), as mentioned in the same hadeeth.
17. In Saheeh Muslim:
From its benefits is that whoever says it one hundred times, in the morning and in the evening, no one will come on the Day of Resurrection with greater than what he has, except the person who has said the same as what he has, or move than him.
Another benefits is that it removes sins, even if they are as much as the foam on the sea.
[This is applicable to the one who says these praises: (a) at the right time i.e. before sunrise and sunset, (b) with sincerity, conscious of what is being said and reflecting on the meaning and (c) with consistency.
20. In Saheeh Al-Bukhari and Muslim:
(one hundred times)
Whoever says this one hundred times in the day will have the reward of:
- Freeing ten slaves,
- One hundred good deeds being written for him
- One hundred sins being removed and
- Being protected during that day, until the evening from the Shaytan.
21. In Saheeh Al-Kalimaat At-Tayyib:
*There are two opinions on how this should be pronounced:
(a) The first opinion is that the word should be pronounced as Shiraki which means plots and plans. So, this part of the supplication would read, “I seek refuge in Your from the evil of my soul and from the evil and plans of Shaytan.”
(b) The second opinion which to seems to the strongest is that it should be pronounced as Shirki. This refers to whatever the Shaytan is calling you toward, in terms of acts of worship, which result in associating partners with Allah. It does not mean that Shirk is being committed by Shaytan himself. On the contrary, it is the person who commits the Shirk in obedience to Shaytan. For a more detailed explanation refer to Tuhfat Al-Ahwadee, Volume 9, Hadeeth 3452 by Shaykh Muhammad Al-Mubarakpuri.
Points to Note:
- Whenever one of these supplications is mentioned, it is necessary for a Muslim to take care of reading these supplications in the morning and evening so that one implements as much as possible of these Sunan.
- It is also necessary that you repeat these supplications with sincerity, truthfulness and having certainty in them. Try to be conscious of their meanings so that they affect you in your life, morals and conduct.
