Do you commit two thousand five hundred sins or good deeds in one day?


Hadith number 1:

The people said,

“O Allah’s Apostle (salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam)! The rich people have got the highest degrees of prestige and the permanent pleasures (in this life and the life to come in the Hereafter).”

He said,

“How is that?”

They said,

“The rich pray as we pray, and strive in Allah’s Cause as we do, and spend from their surplus wealth in charity, while we have no wealth (to spend likewise).”

He said,

“Shall I not tell you a thing, by doing which, you will catch up with those who are ahead of you and supersede those who will come after you; and nobody will be able to do such a good deed as you do except the one who does the same (deed as you do). That deed is to recite subhana Llah ten times, and al-Hamdu li Llah ten times, and Allahu Akbar ten times after every prayer.” – Narrated Abu Huraira (radi Allahu ‘anhu) – Volume 8, Book 75, Number 341

Hadith number 2:

One day Sayyiduna ‘Ali radi Allahu ‘anhu asked her to go to her father and ask for a servant. Sayyidah Fatimah radi Allahu ‘anha came to the Holy Prophet salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam. The Holy Prophet salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said:

 “Shall I not tell you of something better than that which you asked of me? I am telling you the words, which Jibra’il ‘alayhi sallam has told me. You should say subhana Llah  33 times, al-hamdu li Llah 33 times and Allahu Akbar 34 times.”  – [Sahih al-Bukhari, Hadith 5362]

1) After each of the (five) prayers, say tasbih (subhana Llah) ten times, tahmid (al-hamdu li Llah) ten times, and takbir (Allahu Akbar) ten times. This makes one hundred fifty (150) (daily extolments) by tongue, and one thousand five hundred (1500) (good deeds) in the scale. 

2) Upon going to bed say tasbih (subhana Llah) thirty times , tahmid (al-hamdu li Llah) & takbir (Allahu Akbar) thirty four times. This makes one hundred (100) (extolments) by tongue, and one thousand (1000) (good deeds) in the scale.
