O Lord, teach me

It was narrated from Abu Sa‘eed al-Khudri (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said:

Moosa (peace be upon him) said: ‘O Lord, teach me something by which I may remember You and call upon You.’ He said: ‘Say: Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah (there is no god but Allah).’

He said: ‘O Lord, all Your slaves say that.’ He said: ‘Say: Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah.’

He said: ‘There is no god but You, my Lord, but I wanted something that is only for me.’

He said: ‘O Moosa, if the seven heavens and all their inhabitants others except Me, and the seven earths, were (placed) in one pan (of the Balance) and Laa ilaaha ill-Allah was placed in the other pan, Laa ilaaha ill-Allah would outweigh them.”

Narrated by Ibn Hibbaan (6218) and al-Haakim (1936). Al-Haakim classed it as saheeh and adh-Dhahabi agreed with him. Al-Haafiz said in al-Fath (11/208): It was narrated by an-Nasaa’i with a saheeh isnaad

This points to the virtue of these great words.
