Q: I want to know the validity of the below hadeeth I found in the following site: 

Powerful and Virtuous Dua for every need (Must read)


In the book “Key to the Garden of Bliss (Jannat Ki Kunji)” Sahban ul Hind, Hazrat Maulana Ahmed Saeed Dehlwi RA, has quoted the following hadith:

Hazrat Abduallah bin Umar [RA] says, that the Prophet [SAW] has said: Whatever a man asks Allah on reciting the following will be given, one thousand virtues are written in his record and he is advanced one thousand stages, while Allah appoints 70,000 angels for him to pray for his forgiveness till the Day of Judgment. The phrases are: 

Alhamdu Lil-la-hil-lazi Tawa-zoa’a Kul-lu-shai-in Bi Az-matihi Wal Hamdu Lil-la-hil-lazi Zal-la Kul-lo-shai-in Li-Iz-zatihi Wal Hamdu Lil-la-hil-lazi Kha-zoa’a Kul-lo-shai-il Li Mul-kehee Wal Hamdu Lil-la-hil-lazi Is-tas-la-ma Kul-lo-shai-il Li-Qud-ra-tihi 

[All Praise is due to Allah, before Whose Grandeur every thing is humbled and All Praise is due to Allah, before Whose Greatness every thing is subdued and All Praise is due to Allah, before Whose Dominion every thing is abased and All Praise is due to Allah, before Whose Strength every thing surrenders] [Hadith Book: Al-Mu’jamul Kabir by Tabrani]


A: The dua appears in Imaam Tabrani (rahmatullahi alaihi)’s kitaab. It is permissible to recite this dua.

And Allah Ta’ala knows best.

وعن ابن عمر قال : سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم يقول من قال الحمد لله الذي تواضع كل شيء لعظمته والحمد لله الذي ذل كل شيء لعزته والحمد لله الذي خضع كل شيء لملكه والحمد لله الذي استسلم كل شيء لقدرته فقالها يطلب بها ما عند الله كتب الله له بها ألف حسنة ورفع له بها ألف درجة ووكل بها سبعين ألف ملك يستغفرون له إلى يوم القيامة
رواه الطبراني وفيه يحيى بن عبد الله البابلتي وهو ضعيف (مجمع الزوائد 10/116  رقم 16891)
