The Virtue of Being Pleased With Allâh as (ones) Lord, Islâm as (ones) Religion & Muhammad as (ones) Prophet

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

1) Guaranteed paradise

عَنْ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ الْخُدْرِيِّ، أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏”‏ يَا أَبَا سَعِيدٍ مَنْ رَضِيَ بِاللَّهِ رَبًّا وَبِالإِسْلاَمِ دِينًا وَبِمُحَمَّدٍ نَبِيًّا وَجَبَتْ لَهُ الْجَنَّةُ ‏”‏ ‏.‏ قَالَ فَعَجِبَ لَهَا أَبُو سَعِيدٍ قَالَ أَعِدْهَا عَلَىَّ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ‏.‏ فَفَعَلَ ثُمَّ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏”‏ وَأُخْرَى يُرْفَعُ بِهَا الْعَبْدُ مِائَةَ دَرَجَةٍ فِي الْجَنَّةِ مَا بَيْنَ كُلِّ دَرَجَتَيْنِ كَمَا بَيْنَ السَّمَاءِ وَالأَرْضِ ‏”‏ ‏.‏ قَالَ وَمَا هِيَ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ قَالَ ‏”‏ الْجِهَادُ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ الْجِهَادُ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ ‏”

It was narrated from Abû Sa’îd Al-Khudrî that the Messenger of Allâh (ﷺ) said:”O Abû Sa’îd! Whoever is content with Allâh as Lord, Islâm as his religion and Muhammad as Prophet, then he is guaranteed Paradise.” Abu Sa’îd found this amazing and said: “Say it to me again, O Messenger of Allâh.” So he did that, then the Messenger of Allâh (ﷺ) said: “And there is something else by means of which a person may be raised one hundred degrees in Paradise, each of which is like that which is between the Heaven and the Earth.” He said: “What is it, O Messenger of Allâh?” He said: “Jihad in the cause of Allâh, Jihad in the cause of Allâh.”

(Sunan An-Nasâ’i 3131. Declared Sahîh by Al-Albânî)


2) Attaining the sweetness of Îmân (faith)

عَنِ الْعَبَّاسِ بْنِ عَبْدِ الْمُطَّلِبِ، أَنَّهُ سَمِعَ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَقُولُ ‏ “‏ ذَاقَ طَعْمَ الإِيمَانِ مَنْ رَضِيَ بِاللَّهِ رَبًّا وَبِالإِسْلاَمِ دِينًا وَبِمُحَمَّدٍ نَبِيًّا ‏”‏ ‏.

Narrated Al-Abbâs ibn Abdul-Muttalib:that he heard the Messenger of Allâh (ﷺ) say: “Whoever is pleased with Allâh as (his) Lord, and Islâm as (his) religion, and Muhammad as (his) Prophet, then he has tasted the sweetness of faith.”

(At-Tirmidhî 2623. Declared Sahîh by Shu’ayb Al-Arnaût & Ahmad Shâkir)


3) The prophet will take him by the hand until he will enter paradise

عن المنيذر صاحب رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم- وكان يكون بإفريقية – قال سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول: مَن قال إذا أصْبحَ : رَضِيتُ باللهِ ربًّا ، وبالإسلامِ دينًا ، وبِمحمدٍ نبيًا فأنا الزَّعيمُ ، لآخُذَنَّ بيدِه حتى أُدخِلَه الجنةَ

It was narrated from Al-Munaydhir – a companion of the Messenger, and he was in Africa- who said: I heard the Messenger of Allâh (ﷺ) say: Whoever says when the morning enters: radîtu Billahi rabban wa bil-islâmi dînan wa bi muhammadin nabiyyan (I am pleased with Allâh as my Lord, Islâm as my religion and Muhammad as my Prophet). Then I guarantee I will take him by the hand until he is entered into Paradise.

(Sahîh At-Targhîb 657. Declared Hasan by Al-Albânî)


4) Allâh will please him / (on the Day of Resurrection)

عن ثوبان قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم :ما مِن عبدٍ مسلمٍ يقولُ حينَ يُصْبِحُ وحينَ يُمْسي ثلاثَ مرَّاتٍ رضيتُ باللهِ ربًّا وبالإسلامِ دينًا وبمحمَّدٍ صلَّى اللهُ عليه وسلَّم نبيًّا إلَّا كان حقًّا على اللهِ أن يُرضِيَه يومَ القيامةِ

It was narrated from Thawbân that he said: The Messenger of Allâh (ﷺ) said: No Muslim servant says thrice ever morning and evening: radîtu Billahi rabban wa bil-islâmi dînan wa bi muhammadin nabiyyan (I am pleased with Allâh as my Lord, Islâm as my religion and Muhammad as my Prophet), except that is is incumbent upon Allâh to please him on the Day of Resurrection.

(Majm’a Al-Zawâid 10/119. Majmu Al-Fatâwâ of Ibn Bâz 26/28. Imâm Ahmads Musnad 23111. Sunan Al-Kubra of An-Nasâ’i 9832. Declared Sahîh by Shu’ayb Al-Arnaût)

In another wording :

عن ثوبان قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : مَن قالَ حينَ يصبِحُ وحينَ يُمسي ثلاثَ مرَّاتٍ رضيتُ باللَّهِ ربًّا وبالإسلامِ دينًا وبمحمَّدٍ نبيًّا كانَ حقًّا على اللَّهِ أن يُرضِيَهُ

It was narrated from Thawbân that he said: The Messenger of Allâh (ﷺ) said: Whoever says thrice ever morning and evening: radîtu Billahi rabban wa bil-islâmi dînan wa bi muhammadin nabiyyan (I am pleased with Allâh as my Lord, Islâm as my religion and Muhammad as my Prophet), except that is is incumbent upon Allâh to please him.

Declared Hasan by Ibn Hajr in Nata’ij Al-Afkâr 2/371.


5) Sins will be forgiven

عَنْ سَعْدِ بْنِ أَبِي وَقَّاصٍ، عَنْ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ ـ صلى الله عليه وسلم ـ أَنَّهُ قَالَ ‏ “‏ مَنْ قَالَ حِينَ يَسْمَعُ الْمُؤَذِّنَ وَأَنَا أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لاَ شَرِيكَ لَهُ وَأَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمَّدًا عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُولُهُ رَضِيتُ بِاللَّهِ رَبًّا وَبِالإِسْلاَمِ دِينًا وَبِمُحَمَّدٍ نَبِيًّا غُفِرَ لَهُ ذَنْبُهُ ‏”

It was narrated from Sa’d ibn Abî Waqqâs that:The Messenger of Allâh (ﷺ) said: “Whoever says, when he hears the Mu’adh-dhin, ‘Wa ana Ash-hadu an lâ ilâha illallâh wahdahu lâ sharîka lahu, wa ash-hadu anna Muhammadan ‘abduhu wa rasûluhu, radîtu Billahi rabban wa bil-islâmi dînan wa bi muhammadin nabiyyan (And I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped but Allâh alone, with no partner, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger, and I am pleased with Allâh as my Lord, Islâm as my religion and Muhammad as my Prophet),’ his sins will be forgiven to him.

(Sunan Ibn Mâjah 721. Declared Sahîh by Al-Albânî)
