Question:

I heard a hadith which goes on like this “Once Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) saw his wife on the musalat praying , he went for fajr and came back after some work and still saw his wife on musalat praying / doing zikr . He responded that these 4 words repeated 3 times are more in weight than your entire work that you have done today .

These words are
Subhan-Allahi wa Bihamdihi Adada Khalqih wa Riza-A-Nafsih wa Zinahtah Arshih wa Mizazah Kalimatih”

Could you confirm this hadith and also the exact words . I think I am not quoting the zikr properly here due to lack of cognition in Arabic language .

Answer:

All praise are due to Allah.

Jazakumallahu khairan for your question. The hadith you are referring to was narrated by Imam Muslim. Here is the text in Arabic:

عن جويرية رضى الله عنها : أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم خرج من عندها ثم رجع بعد أن أضحى وهي جالسة فقال : ما زلت على الحال التي فارقتك عليها ؟ قالت : نعم . قال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم : لقد قلت بعدك أربع كلمات – ثلاث مرات – لو وزنت بما قلت منذ اليوم لوزنتهن : سبحان الله وبحمده ، عدد خلقه ، ورضا نفسه ، وزنة عرشه ، ومداد كلماته

“Subhanallahi wa bihamdihi, ‘adada khalqihi, wa ridaa nafsihi, wa zinati ‘arshihi, wa midaada kalimatihi.”

“Perfected is Allah and Praised, by the number of His Creation, and by the Pleasure of His Self, and by the Weight of His Throne, and by the ink (needed) to Write His Words.”

Allah knows best.
