Takbeer, Tahleel, Tahmeed and Tasbeeh

Right from the beginning of his mission as the Last and Final Messenger of Allah to mankind down to his last breath, Prophet Muhammad Sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam, has taught us hundreds of du’aas (supplications) and ways to remember and glorify Allah (adhkaar).

Du’aas and Adhkaar that are simple, yet splendid! Mind-boggling, yet insightful! Lucid, yet marvelous!  Precise, yet comprehensive! Humble, yet piercing!  We have no choice but to marvel at this glorious Prophet’s humility and worship towards his Creator.

These are the sacred days of Dhul Hijjah. The hujjaj have assembled at the House of Allah from every distant land in the world.

It was narrated from ‘Abd-Allah ibn ‘Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:

Say Takbeer Tahleel Tasbeeh

“There are no days that are greater before Allah in which Good Deeds are more beloved to Him, than these ten days, so recite a great deal of tahleel, takbeer and tahmeed during them.” Narrated by Ahmad, 7/224.  

Takbeer is to proclaim the greatness of Allah by saying Allahu Akbar (Allah is Great!)

Tahleel is to declare the oneness of Allah by saying La ilaaha il-lal-laah (There is none worthy of worship except Allah)

Tahmeed is to praise Allah by saying Alhamdulillah (All Praise belongs to Allah)

Tasbeeh is to glorify Allah by saying Subhanallah (Glory be to Allah)

Another beautiful hadeeth glitters like this:

It was narrated from Nu’man bin Bashir that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:

“What you mention of glory of Allah, of Tasbeeh (Subhanallah), Tahleel (Laa ilaaha il-lal-laah) and Tahmeed (Al-Hamdu lillah), revolves around the Throne, buzzing like bees, reminding of the one who said it. Wouldn’t any one of you like to have, or continue to have, something that reminds of him (in the presence of Allah)?'” Subhanallah!

It is Sunnah to recite takbeer, tahmeed, tahleel and tasbeeh during the first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah.

Muslims are encouraged to fill the atmosphere saying these words aloud in mosques, homes, streets and at every place in which it is permissible to remember Allah.

Men should say loudly and women should say quietly.

The Takbeer during Dhul Hijjah is said in its extended format which is as follows:

Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, laa ilaaha il-lal-laahu Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, wa Lillaahil-hamd


Listen to this Eid Takbeer

Allah is Great! Allah is Great! Allah is Great! There is none worthy of worship and obedience except Allah. Allah is Great! Allah is Great! And all Praise belongs to Him alone!

During Hajj days, we all hear the Talbiyah, the most beautiful resounding proclamation ever on the face of the earth!


Please listen to this beautiful Talbiyah recitation by UAE’s most popular Qaari, Sheikh Salah Bukhatir:

Allah has created us. He has given us the faculty of speech. Let us use our tongue to glorify Him as He alone deserves to be glorified and worshiped.

May Allah accept our du’aas, our adhkaar, our worship and forgive us of our sins. May He be pleased with us. Aameen.

O Allah! Keep us alive as true Muslims and take our souls in the state of Imaan. Aameen.
