From Talha bin Kharash al-Ansaari who said I heard Jabir bin Abdullaah saying I heard the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam saying:

“ أفضل الذكر لا إله إلا الله و أفضل الشكر الحمد لله “

‘The best Dhikr is La ilaha illa Allah and the best gratitude is Alhamdulillah.’

[Collected by Ibn Hibban, al-kharaiti in ‘Fadl shukr’, Baghawi in ‘Sharh as-Sunnah’ & Al-Albaani graded it Hasan in Saheehah no.  1497]

Allaah Ta’ala said:

فَسَبِّحْ بِحَمْدِ رَبِّكَ وَاسْتَغْفِرْهُ” [النصر: 3] .

So glorify the Praises of your Lord, and ask for His Forgiveness. >>[Nasr: 3]

Allaah Ta’ala said:

لَئِن شَكَرْتُمْ لأَزِيدَنَّكُمْ

《If you give thanks (by accepting Faith and worshipping none but Allah), I will give you more (of My Blessings 》[Ibraheem: 7]

Other Ahadeeth about al-Hamd

الحمد لله كثيراً

From Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri -RadhiAllaahu anhu- who said that the Messenger of Allaah -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- said

“ إذا قال العبد : الحمد لله كثيراً- قال الله تعالى : اكتبوا لعبدي رحمتي كثيراً

‘When the slave of Allaah says: ‘Alhamdulillah Katheera’ [Praise be to Allaah a lot], Allaah Ta’ala  says: ‘Write a lot of my Mercy for  My slave.’

[Saheeh Targheeb 1578 & graded Hasan Lighayrihi by Al-Albaani]

The Messenger of Allaah -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- said:

“قال رجلٌ:الحمد لله كثيراً،فأعظمها الملكُ أن يكتبها،فراجع فيها ربه عز وجل فقال:اكتبها

كما قال عبدي كثيراً”

‘A man said ‘Alhamdulillah Katheera’ [Praise be to Allaah a lot] the Angel saw this as a great matter so he went to check with his Lord -Azza wa Jal. Allaah said: ‘Write it as my slave said it, ‘Katheer’.’

[Saheeh Targheeb wa Tarheeb 1577 & researched in Saheehah no.3452]

From Abu Ummamah -RadhiAllaahu anhu- said that the Messenger of Allaah -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- said:

«ما أنعم الله على عبد نعمة فحمد الله عليها إلا كان ذلك الحمد أفضل من تلك النعمة.. … » .

‘Allaah did not give a blessing to a worshipper and he says ‘Alhamdulillah’ for that blessing except that the Hamd [Praise for Allaah] was better than that blessing.’

[Collected by Tabarani & Al-Albaani graded it Hasan. As well as another narration from Anas collected by Ibn Sunni, al-Kharaiti as in  Saheeh al-Jamia as-Sagheer no. 5562]

From Anas that the Prophet -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- said:

«التأني من الله، والعجلة من الشيطان، وما شيء أكثر معاذير من الله، وما شيء أحب إلى الله من الحمد»

‘Being patient and gentle is from Allaah, haste is from the Shaytaan. There is nothing more as a pardon from Allaah and nothing more beloved to Allaah than ‘al-Hamd’. [Praise for Allaah].

[Collected by al-Bayhaqi in Shu’ab al-Eemaan and graded Hasan by Al-Albaani in Silsilah Saheehah no. 1795, Saheeh Targheeb No. 1572]

From Mus’ab bin Sa’ad from his father: that a Bedouin said to the Prophet -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- : ‘Teach me a Dua, perhaps Allaah will benefit me by it?’

The Prophet said:

“قُلْ: اللهُمَّ لَكَ الحمدُ كلُّه، وإليكَ يرجعُ الأَمرُ كُلُّهُ”.

‘Say: O Allaah all praise is for You and all commands are for You.’

[Collected by al-Bayhaqi & Al-Albaani graded it Hasan in Saheeh Targheeb no. 1576]
