Declaring Allah's Greatness, Praise and Perfection(Du'a at the start of prayer)




From Ibn ‘Umar (رضي الله عنه) who said: “Whilst we were praying with the Messenger of Allāh (ﷺ) a man from amongst people recited;


اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ كَبِيرًا وَالْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ كَثِيرًا وَسُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ بُكْرَةً وَأَصِيلاً


Allahu Akbaru kabeera, wal-hamdu Lillahi katheera, wa Subhan-Allahi bukratan was asila 


(Allah is Great, the Greatest, and praise belongs to Allāh in abundance, and glorified be Allāh at the beginning and end of the day),


So the Messenger of Allāh (ﷺ) asked (after prayer): _*“Who said such and such?!!”*_ The man replied: _“I did O Messenger of Allāh.”_ So the Messenger of Allāh (ﷺ) said: _*“I was amazed by it, for it opened the gates of heaven.”*_


Ibn 'Umar (رضي الله عنه) said: “I have not abandoned them (i.e these words) since I heard the Messenger of Allāh (ﷺ) saying that.”


[‎Sahih Muslim 601, Sunan an-Nasa'i 886, At-Tirmidhi 223 & Abu Awaanah; Abu Nuaim also narrated it in Akhbaar Isbahaan 1/210 from Jubair ibn Mut'am who heard the Prophet (ﷺ) say in voluntary prayer]


Note: Sh. al-Albānī Raḥimahullāh mentioned in his book (صفة صلاة النبي) that this Dhikr is from one of the supplications with which the prayer is opened (after the first Takbeer).

All praise is due to Allah, we ask Him to bless the Prophet Sallah Llah Alei Wasalam and let's die in the path of Qur'an and Sunnah.
