Dua from The Quran

 

حَسْبِيَ اللّهُ لا إِلَهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ عَلَيْهِ تَوَكَّلْتُ وَهُوَ رَبُّ الْعَرْشِ الْعَظِي

 

Hasbiyah Allahu la Ilaa ha illa huwa. ‘alayhi twakkal tu wa huwa rabbul ‘arshil adheem (9:129)

 

Allah is sufficient for me. None has the right to be worshipped but He, in Him I put my trust and He is the Lord of the Mighty Throne.

 

The Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه و سلم) said, “Allah will grant whoever recites this seven times in the morning and evening whatever he desires from this world or the next.” [Saheeh, Sunan Abee Dawood]

 

Hadith

Indeed the nearest to Allah are those who make salaam first. (Ahmad)

Exchanging salaam holds a high position in Islam. Not only is salaam equated with many other important deeds, but it is one of the defining criteria of belief.

Allah’s Names

 

The names and attributes of Allah are part of tahweed (belief). To know Allah we need to know His attributes.

 al quddus

Al Quddus :

The One who is Very Pure, Absolutely Pure, He is far and above anything that does not befit Him.

The basic meaning is derived from the word “Quds”-pure and blessed. So, Al-Quddus refers to one who is free and perfect from any deficiency, holy in all aspects

 

The First meaning of Qaf-daal-seen (ق د س), quds, is taharah (cleanliness). The verb qadasa is from the same root and it is used for the movement of a bucket. Why is it called qadasa? Because from the bucket that has water, you will obtain purity and cleanliness.

The second meaning of this root is barakah, a lot of goodness. So with this meaning, Al Quddoos means: The One who is Blessed, the One who is the Source of All Good, The One with a lot of Khayr. This root means to be or go far away. So Allah ta`ala (most High) is far from any impurity or imperfection.
