Most beloved words to Allah


Abu Hurayrah (radhi-yAllaahu 'anhu) reported that the Messenger of Allaah (sal-Allaahu 'alayhe wa sallam) said: Saying:

سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ، وَالْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ، وَلاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ، وَاللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ

How perfect Allaah is, and all praise is for Allaah. None has the right to be worshipped except Allaah, and Allaah is the greatest.

Subhaanallaah, Alhamdu lillaah, Laa 'ilaaha 'illallaah, wa Allaahu 'Akbar

...is more beloved to me than everything the sun has risen over. The most beloved words to Allaah are also these four, and it does not matter which of them you start with.
