Benefits and Why You Should Recite The Dhikr

The dhikr is usually known as tahlil/tahleel and it involves the praising of God in Islam and means that "There is none worthy of worship except Alllah". It is also a part of the shahada and is practiced as a tradition/ritual. The dhikr also comes with its benefits and priority, some of them includes:

  1. As a key to entering the heavens as quoted in from the Prophet PBUH that has also said, "Whoever ends his words before death is 'la ilaha illallah', then he will enter heaven." (HR. Abu Dawud: 1621).
  2. The dhikr is also one of the best dhikr to recite as it is full of good deeds. The dhikr would bring you closer to Jannah and away from hell. The Prophet said that Prophet PBUH had said that reciting the dhikr could bring us good rewards while erasing our sins.
  3. It protects you from the flames of hell as stated by Umar RA and the Prophet PBUH "Indeed I will teach you a sentence, no servant pronounces it from his heart and then dies on that belief, unless (Allah) forbids his body from the fire of hell. That is the sentence la ilaha illallah.” (HR. Hakim – Shohih Targhib wa Tarhib: 1528).
  4. Reciting the dhikr outright would give you a guaranteed pass to enter heaven. The outright recitation would also need to be accompanied with activities of the Muslims to also prevent them to do things that are haram (HR. at-Tabarani).
  5. Laa Ilaaha Illallah is dhikr and intercessor of prayer, as it is always encouraged to be read by Prophet, Musa.
  6. Reciting the dhikr would postpone the doomsday as it is said that the doomsday would not occur as long as there's someone who still recite La ilaha illal lah.
  7. Reciting the dhikr 100 times a day would also equal to the reward of freeing ten slaves and writing for him a hundred good deeds, and erasing from him a hundred bad things (sins). This dhikr would also protect the Muslims who recite it from the devil's disturbance. 

Now knowing the benefits of the dhikr, let us start reciting it!
