Muslims says ‘Allahu Akbar’ several times during the day across the world – it is recited in the public call (azaan) for mandatory prayer five times a day. In each of the five obligatory prayers, Allahu-Akbar is recited a set number of times. It is also said a set number of times in the voluntary prayers.In fact, no azaan or salah is complete without the recitation of ‘Allahu Akbar’.

People also say ‘Allahu-Akbar’ when they are experiencing difficulty, as to remind themselves that no tragedy or sorrow is big enough for Allah to handle. Muslims also say it in times of success as to humble themselves because it is only by Allah’s Will and Mercy that we are able to succeed in our endeavours.

Given below are some prophet narrations that talk of the virtues of reciting Allahu-Akbar.

Abu Sa`id (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Perform the enduring goods deeds more frequently.” They asked, “What are these enduring good deeds?” The Prophet (peace be upon him) replied: Takbir [Allahu Akbar], Tahlil [la ilahaillallah], Tasbih [Subhan’Allah], Alhamdulillah, and  lahawlawa la quwwataillabillah.”

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “For me to say SubhanAllah, walHamdulilah, wa La illahailAllahu, waAllahu Akbar (Glory be to Allah, All Praise is for Allah, There is No God but Allah, Allah is the Greatest) is dearer to me and all that the sun rises upon (ie the whole world).” [Sahih Muslim]

Abd Allah ibn Mas’ud reported that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “During the Night Journey I met Ibrahim (AS) who said to me: ‘O Muhammad, convey my greetings to your Community, and tell them that the Paradise is of pure land, its water is sweet, and its expanse is vast, spacious and even. And its seedlings are SubhanAllah, walhamdulilah, wa la ilahailAllah, waAllahu Akbar.’” [at-Tirmidhi]

In another hadith, it is said: “Whoever glorifies Allah (says Subhaan Allah) 33 times immediately after each prayer, and praises Allah (says Al-hamduLillaah) 33 times, and magnifies Allah (says AllahuAkbar) 33 times, this makes 99, then to complete 100, says Laailaaha ill-Allah wahdahulaashareekalahu, lahu’l-mulkwalahu’l-hamdwahuwa ‘ala kullishay’inqadeer (There is no god except Allah Alone, with no partner, His is the power and His is the praise, and He is Able to do all things) – his sins will be forgiven even if they are like the foam of the sea.” (Muslim)
