Invocation for Entering A Market and its Tremendous Reward
|Laa ‘ilaaha ‘illallaahu wahdahu laa shareeka lahu,
Lahul-mulku wa lahul-hamdu,
Yuhyee wa yumeetu,
wa Huwa Hayyun Laa Yamootu,
wa Huwa ‘alaa kulli shay’in Qadeer
None has the right to be worshipped but Allah alone, Who has no partner.
His is the dominion and His is the praise.
He brings life and He causes death,
and He is living and does not die.
In His Hand is all good,
and He is Able to do all things.
Reference: At-Tirmithi 5/291, and Al-Hakim 1/538. Al-Albani graded it good in Sahih Ibn Majah 2/21 and Sahih At-Tirmithi 3/152.
It is stated in the hadith that if a person reads the above du’aa in the market place, Allaah writes ten lakh rewards for him and forgives ten lakh sins and raises his status by ten lakh, and a house is prepared for him in Jannah.
N.B. one lakh = 100,000 (Tirmidhi) Note: Whoever recites this du’aa [in the market place], Allaah will reward him with a million virtues (hasanah), forgive a million of his sins and elevate his rank by a million
