لَآ إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ ۖ
وَهُوَ رَبُّ ٱلْعَرْشِ ٱلْعَظِيمِ
Allah is sufficient for me.
There is none worthy of worship but Him.
I have placed my trust in Him,
He is Lord of the Majestic Throne.
(Seven Times: Day and Night)
laa ilaaha illaa huwa
wa huwa Rabbu ‘l-Arshi ‘l-Azeem
Reference and Authenticity : Sunan Abi Dawud 5081 : حَسْبِيَ اللَّهُ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ
عَنْ أَبِي الدَّرْدَاءِ رضى الله عنه قَالَ مَنْ قَالَ إِذَا أَصْبَحَ وَإِذَا أَمْسَى حَسْبِيَ اللَّهُ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ عَلَيْهِ تَوَكَّلْتُ وَهُوَ رَبُّ الْعَرْشِ الْعَظِيمِ سَبْعَ مَرَّاتٍ كَفَاهُ اللَّهُ مَا أَهَمَّهُ صَادِقًا كَانَ بِهَا أَوْ كَاذِبًا .
Abu al-Darda’ said:
if anyone says seven times morning and evening; “Allah sufficeth me: there is no god but He; on him is my trust- he, the Lord of the Throne (of glory) Supreme”, Allah will be sufficient for him against anything which grieves him, whether he is true or false in (repeating) them.
Reference : Sunan Abi Dawud 5081
In-book reference : Book 43, Hadith 309
English translation : Book 42, Hadith 5063
The authenticity of this chain of narration has been confirmed, halting the chain at Abu Darda. In book, Silsilatul Zaeefa (5286), Al-Albani expressed reservations and objection about the last statement
“.whether he is true or false in (repeating) them.”
So it seems that above statement aligns with the viewpoint of a narrator and not part of original content. The crucial point remains that the core of the Hadith is genuinely authentic which is this part:
‘If anyone says seven times morning and evening; “Allah sufficeth me there is no god but He; on him is my trust, the Lord of the Throne (of glory) Supreme”, Allah will be sufficient for him against anything which grieves him’
The Collected Fatwas of Ibn Baz” (26/65)
Praise be to Allah.
This hadeeth was narrated in a mawqoof report from Abu’d-Darda’ (may Allah be pleased with him) by Abu Dawood in his Sunan with a jayyid isnaad, as follows: “Whoever says in the morning and in the evening Sufficient for me is Allaah, there is no god besides Him; in Him have I put my trust and He is the Lord of the mighty Throne., seven times, Allah, may He be exalted, will suffice him for what concerns him,” and it does not contain the additional phrase mentioned (“of the affairs of this world and the Hereafter”). This is a mawqoof hadeeth, the isnaad of which ends with Abu’d-Darda’ and does not go back to the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him), but it comes under the heading of a marfoo‘ hadeeth because such words could not be said on the basis of individual opinion. And Allah is the source of strength. End quote.
