What can we do in one minute?


Recommended Posts

سُبْحَانَ اللّٰهِ، وَالحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ، وَلاَ إِلٰهَ إِلَّا اللّٰهُ وَاللّٰهُ أَكْبَرُ
Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam said: “When I say ‘Glory be to Allah, praise be to Allah, there is no god but Allah, and Allah is Most Great’, this is more beloved to me than all that the sun rises upon.” [Muslim]
In one minute, you can say the above words more than 18 times. 
These words are the most beloved words to Allah, the best of words, and they weigh heavily in the balance of good deeds, as is narrated in authentic Ahadith.
سُبْحَانَ اللّٰهِ وَبِحَمْدِهِ، سُبْحَانَ اللّٰهِ العَظِيمِ
In one minute you can say the above 50 times. 
These are two phrases which are light on the lips, heavy in the balance and beloved to the Most Merciful. [Bukhari]
سُبْحَانَ اللّٰهِ وَبِحَمْدِهِ
In one minute you can say the above 100 times. 
Whoever says that in one day will be forgiven for his sins even if they are like the foam of the sea.
لاَ حَوْلَ وَلاَ قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللّٰهِ
In one minute you can say the above more than 40 times.
This is one of the treasures of Paradise. [Bukhaari]
لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلَّا اللّٰهُ
In one minute you can say, “Laa Ilaaha Illallah” approximately 50 times. 
This is the greatest word, for it is the word of Tawheed.
أَسْتَغْفِرُ اللّٰه
In one minute you can seek the forgiveness of Allah by saying, “Astaghfirullah” more than 100 times.
The virtues of seeking forgiveness are no secret, for it is the means of attaining forgiveness and entering Paradise, and it is the means of being granted a good life, increasing one’s strength, warding off disasters, making things easier, bringing rain and increasing one’s wealth and children.
صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ
In one minute you can send blessings on the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) 50 times by saying, “Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam”.
In return, Allah will send blessings upon you 500 hundred times because one blessing brings ten like it.
In one minute you can recite Surah al-Ikhlaas (Qul Huwa Allahu Ahad) 15 times. Reciting it once is equivalent to one-third of the Qur’aan. If you read it 20 times it is equivalent to reading the Qur’aan 7 times. If you read it 15 times in one minute each day, you will have read it 450 times in one month, and 5400 times in one year, which will be equal in reward to reading the Qur’aan 1800 times.
In one minute you can motivate your heart to give thanks to Allah, to love Him, to fear Him, to put hope in Him, to long for Him, and thus travel through the stages of ‘uboodiyyah (total enslavement to Allah). You could do this when you are lying on your bed or walking in the street.
These actions are also among the greatest means of attaining happiness, expanding the chest (i.e., bringing relief and joy) and removing stress and anxiety. May Allah Ta’ala help us to do that which He loves and which pleases Him.
