Erasing of Sins

عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ عَمْرٍو رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُمَا قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ:

“مَا عَلَى الْأَرْضِ أَحَدٌ يَقُولُ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ وَاللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ وَلَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللَّهِ إِلَّا كُفِّرَتْ عَنْهُ خَطَايَاهُ وَلَوْ كَانَتْ مِثْلَ زَبَدِ الْبَحْرِ”.

أخرجه أحمد (2/158 ، رقم 6479) ، والترمذي (5/509 ، رقم 3460) وحسَّنه الألباني (صحيح الجامع، رقم 5636).

It is narrated from Abdullah ibn Amr al-Aas [RAA] that the Prophet صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ said,

“There is nobody on the Earth who says “La ilaha il-lal-laahu wAllahu akbaru wa la hawla wa la quwwata illa billahi” except that his sins are erased even if they were like the foam of the sea”.

[Reported by Imam Ahmad, Tirmidhi and graded as good (hasan) by Al-Albani].

لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ – La ilaha il-lal-laahu: There is no deity/object worthy of worship except Allah.

وَاللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ – wAllahu akbaru: And Allah is the greatest.

وَلَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللَّهِ – wa la hawla wa la quwwata illa billahi: And there is no power and no strength except with Allah.
