Tahmeed is to say 'Al-hamdu lillãhi

Tahleel is to say Lã 'ilãha 'illã 'allãhu

Tasbeeh is to say Subhana 'allãhi

The Messenger of Allah said: "Whoever says:

Lã 'ilãha 'illã 'allãhu wahdahu lã shareeka lahu, lahulmulku wa lahul hamdu wa huwa `alã kulli shay'in qadeerun
There is no 'ilãh except Allah, no partner does He have; his is the Kingdom, and to Him is all Praise, and He is ever-able to do everything

100 times would get the reward of manumitting ten slaves, one hundred good deeds would be written for him, one hundred sins would be remitted from him, it would be a shield for him from the Shaytan

A 'oo thu bi kalli maa til laa hit taam maa ti min shar ri maa gha laq
I seek refuge in the most perfect words of Allah against the evil He created.

Bis mil laa hil la thee laa ya dur ru ma 'as mi hee shay un fil ar di wa laa fis sa maa i wa hu was sa mee ’ul aleem
In the name of Allah through Whose name nothing in heaven or on earth can harm, and He is the All-hearing, the All-seeing.


Has bu nal laa hu wa ni' mal wa keel, ni' mal mow laa wa ni' man na seer
For us Allah suffices, and He is the best disposer of affairs. He is the best to protect and the best to help.
