WHAT CAN YOU DO IN ONE MINUTE?
Brothers &Sisters in Islam Let's continue to seek guidance from Allah, and may He guide us to the straight path.
Pliz Ask yourself ..WHAT CAN YOU DO IN ONE MINUTE?
There follows a list of things that can be done in one minute, by the
permission of Allah:
► In one minute you can recite Surah al-Faatihah 3 times, reciting rapidly and silently. Some scholars said that the reward for reading al-
Faatihah is more than 600 hasanahs, so if you read it 3 times you will, by
the permission of Allaah, gain more than 1800 hasanahs – all of that in one minute.
► In one minute you can recite Surah al-Ikhlaas (Qul Huwa Allaahu Ahad) 20 times, reciting rapidly and silently. Reciting it once is equivalent to one-third of the Qur’aan. If you read it 20 times it is equivalent to reading the Qur’aan 7 times. If you
read it 20 times in one minute each day, you will have read it 600 times in
one month, and 7200 times in one year, which will be equal in reward to reading the Qur’aan 2400 times.
► You can read one page of the Book of Allah in one minute.
► You can memorize a short aayah of the Book of Allah in one minute.
► In one minute you can say Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah wahdahu laa shareeka
lah, lahu’l-mulk wa lahu’l-hamd wa huwa ‘ala kulli shay’in qadeer (There
is no god except Allaah alone with no partner; to Him be dominion and
praise, and He is Able to do all things) – 20 times. The reward for saying this
is like freeing 8 slaves for the sake of Allah from among the sons of Ismaa’eel.
► In one minute you can say Subhaan Allaahi wa bi hamdihi (Glory and praise be to Allaah) 100 times. Whoever says that in one day will be forgiven for his sins even if they are like the foam of the sea.
► In one minute you can say Subhaan Allahi wa bi hamdihi Subhaan Allaah il-‘Azeem (Glory and
praise be to Allaah, glory be to Allaah the Almighty) 50 times. These are two
phrases which are light on the lips, heavy in the balance and beloved to
the Most Merciful, as was narrated by al-Bukhaari and Muslim.
► The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “When I
say ‘Subhaan Allaah, wa’l-hamdu Lillah, wa laa ilaah ill-Allaah, wa Allahu akbar (Glory be to Allah, praise be to Allah, there is no god except Allah, and Allah is Most Great)’, this is more beloved to me than all that the sun rises upon.” (Narrated by Muslim). In one minute, you can say all of these words more than 18 times. These words are the most beloved words to Allah, the best of words, and they weigh heavily in the balance of good deeds, as was
narrated in the saheeh ahaadeeth.
► In one minute you can say, Laa hawla wa laa quwwata illa Billaah (there is no strength and no power except with Allah) more than 40 times. This is one of the treasures of Paradise, as was narrated by al- Bukhaari and Muslim. They are a means of putting up with difficulties
and of aiming to achieve great things.
► In one minute you can say Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah approximately 50 times. This is the greatest word, for it is the word of Tawheed, the good word, the word that stands firm. If these are the last words of a person,
he will enter Paradise, and there are other reports which indicate how great these words are.
► In one minute you can say Subhaan Allaah wa bi hamdih, ‘adada khalqihi, wa ridaa nafsihi, wazinata‘arshihi, wa midaada kalimaatihi (Glory and praise be to Allaah, as
much as the number of His creation, as much as pleases Him, as much as the weight of His Throne and as much as the ink of His words) more than 15times. This words bring many more times the reward for other forms of
tasbeeh and dhikr, as was reported in saheeh ahaadeeth from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be
► In one minute you can seek the forgiveness of Allah more than 100 times by saying “Astaghfir-Allaah (I
seek the forgiveness of Allaah). The virtues of seeking forgiveness are no secret, for it is the means of attaining forgiveness and entering Paradise, and it is the means of being granted a
good life, increasing one’s strength, warding off disasters, making things easier, bringing rain and increasing one’s wealth and children.
► You can say a few brief and concise words in one minute, and Allah may
bring about some good through them that you could never imagine.
► In one minute you can send blessings on the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) 50 times by saying Sall-Allaahu ‘alayhiwa sallam (May Allaah bless him and grant him peace). In return Allaah will send blessings upon you 500 hundred times because one blessing brings ten like it.
► In one minute you can motivate your heart to give thanks to Allaah, to
love Him, to fear Him, to put hope in Him, to long for Him, and thus travel
through the stages of ‘uboodiyyah (total enslavement to Allah). You could do this when you are lying on your bed or walking in the street.
► In one minute you can read more than two pages of a useful book that is easy to understand.
► In one minute you can uphold the ties of kinship by calling a relative on
► You can raise your hands and recite any du’aa’ you wish from the
books of du’aa’, in one minute.

► You can offer sincere advice to a brother in one minute.

► Making the most of one minute motivates you to make the most of other periods that would otherwise be wasted.
