|Authentic Supplications of the Prophet
Upon Entering a Market Place (255)
| The Messenger of Allah
said:"Whoever enters the marketplace and says:Lã 'ilãha
'illã 'allãhu wahdahu lã shareeka lahu, lahul
mulku, wa lahul hamdu, yuhyee wa yumeetu, wa huwa hayyun lã
yamootu, biyadihil khayru, wa huwa 'alã kulli shay'in qadeerun(259)
Allah would write for him one thousand thousand merits, would remit
from him one thousand thousand sins,and would raise for him [his status]
one thousand thousand levels".
(259) There is no 'ilãh
except Allah, no partner does He have; his is the Kingdom, and to
Him is all Praise; He livens, and mortifies; and He is alive; never
to die. In his Hand is all good, and He is well able to do everything.
Reported by At-Tirmithi. Al-Albãni said that At-Tirmithi
weakened it by saying that it was a "strange" hadeeth. A strange
hadeeth is one that is reported by only one person at some of its
links; however he said it becomes comely when all of its channels
are considered. Specifically he referred to Al-Hãkim's (528-539/1),Ibn
As-Sunni's (#178), and Imãm Ahmad's Az-zuhd (#214).
He also said that Al-Munthiree said it was comely in At-Targheeb.
Albãni included this hadeeth in The Authentic of Good
Sayings as #183.
