A Statement Which is One of The Treasures of Paradise And is Easy To Utter

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

Abu Moosaa Al-Ash’aree (radiyallaahu-anhu) said, ‘’The Messenger of Allaah (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) said to me, ‘O Abdullaah Bin Qais! Shall I tell you a word which is one of the treasures of Paradise? It is [لَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللهِ  – There is neither might nor power except with Allaah] [Bukhaari 6384 & Muslim 2704]

[One of the treasures of paradise]; meaning, ‘Its reward is great and that is paradise’, and Paradise is the greatest thing sought after. This shows the virtue of the statement  [لَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللهِ  – There is neither might nor power except with Allaah]. And why does it carry that reward? That is because it necessitates surrendering all of one’s affairs to Allaah, manifesting one’s inability and poverty in the presence of Allaah, and that indeed Allaah is The One Perfect in Strength and The One Fully Able to do all things (and has power over all things). It [لَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللهِ  – There is neither might nor power except with Allaah] is a great statement, easy to utter and repeat on the tongue……
