Imagine earning a million good deeds simply by praising Allah SWT every time you shop! One of the fastest and easiest ways to earn yourself mountains of good deeds is to learn the dua of the marketplace as taught to us by the Prophet SAW.
The messenger of Allah (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: Whoever enters the market and says:
laa ilaaha ill-allaahu waḥdahu laa shareeka lah, lah-ul-mulku wa lahul-ḥamdu, yuḥyee wa yumeetu wa huwa ḥayun laa yamootu, bi yadi-hil-khayru, wa huwa ‛alaa kulli shay’in qadeer
“None has the right to be worshipped except Allah, alone, without partner, to Him belongs all sovereignty and praise. He gives life and causes death, and He is living and does not die. In His hand is all good and He Omnipotent over all things.”
Allah SWT will wipe a million bad deeds from his record, grant him a million good deeds, and will elevate him a million degree (of virtue)- ([and will build him a house in paradise] in another narration).
(Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah and classed as Sahih by Sheikh Albani)
The most beautiful aspect of this dua is that you don’t have to specifically go into a marketplace – rather the scholars have agreed that the reward is the same every time you step into a place where you buy goods.
Truly Allah’s favours upon His servants is magnificent and made easy for those who have faith!
