Alhamdulillah That Fills the Scale

An excerpt from a khutbah that I gave discussing the statement of the Prophet: “And Alhamdulillah fills the scale”.

The complete hadith is as follows:

( الطهور شطر الإيمان ، والحمد لله تملأ الميزان ، وسبحان الله والحمد لله تملآن – تملأ – ما بين السماوات والأرض ، والصلاة نور ، والصدقة برهان ، والصبر ضياء ، والقرآن حجة لك أو عليك ، كل الناس يغدو ، فبائع نفسه ، فمعتقها أو موبقها ) رواه مسلم

“Purity is half of faith and the praise of Allah fills the scale; glorification and praise fill up what is between the heavens and the earth. Prayer is a light, charity is proof (of sincere faith), and patience is illumination. The Quran is a proof for you or against you; all people go out early in the morning and sell themselves, either setting themselves free or destroying themselves.”

The khutbah focuses on what alhamdulillah means, some examples of its usage in Qur’an and how alhamdulillah can fill the scale of good deeds.
