‘None has the right to be worshipped except Allah, alone, without partner. To Him belongs all sovereignty and praise and He is over all things omnipotent.’ …a hundred times during the day, has the reward of freeing ten
slaves, a hundred good deeds are recorded for him and a hundred bad deeds are wiped away and he has gained refuge from the devil that day until evening and none shall come with anything better except someone who has done more.’

‘Whoever says:

…one hundred times, none shall come on the Day of Resurrection with anything better except someone who has said the same or even more.’
