The Prophet Muhammad s.a.w once said to his Companions:
One day Prophet Musa a.s prayed to Almighty Allah to teach him some form of dhikr for his remembrance.
Allah commanded him to recite, “Lailaha illallah (There is no god but Allah)!”
Musa a.s said, “O my Lord! but this dhikr is recited by all of creation.” Again came the reply, “Recite ‘Lailaha illallah!’ ”
Musa a.s asked once more “My Sustainer, I want something special, meant for me alone.”
ln Almighty Allah said, “ O Musa! If the seven heavens and the seven earths were placed in one pan of a scale, and the words ‘La-ilaha illallah’ (There is no god but Allah) in the other, these words would outweigh the heavens and earths together.”
The Messenger of Allah (Sall’Allahu alayhi wa salam) said (narrated by Jabir bin `Abdullah):
“The best Dhikr (remembering Allah) is La ilaha illallah and the best supplication is Al-Hamdu Lillah.” [At-Tirmidhi, An-Nasa’i and Ibn Majah]
“Sebaik-baiknya dzikir adalah La ilaha illallah dan sebaik-baiknya doa adalah Alhamdulillah”
