No protecting friend of God through dependence

Surah Baniii ‘Israaa-‘iil (The Children of Israel) – 17

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast)

(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful)

 وَقُلِ ٱلْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ ٱلَّذِى لَمْ يَتَّخِذْ وَلَدًا وَلَمْ يَكُن لَّهُۥ شَرِيكٌ فِى ٱلْمُلْكِ وَلَمْ يَكُن لَّهُۥ وَلِىٌّ مِّنَ ٱلذُّلِّ وَكَبِّرْهُ تَكْبِيرًۢا 111


111.  And say: Praise be to Allah, Who hath not taken unto Himself a son, and Who hath no partner in the Sovereignty, nor hath He any protecting friend through dependence, and magnify Him with all magnificence. 111.  Wa  qulil-Hamdu  Lillaahil-lazii  lam  yattakhiz  waladanw-wa  lam  yakul-laHuu  shariikun  fil-mulki  wa  lam  yakul-laHuu  waliyyum-minaz-zulli  wa  kabbirHu  takbiiraa.




It is commanded: Allah Almighty is Whole of the entire excellences and virtues. You should imagine His virtues for His worship and say: All Praises and gratitude-able attributes are only of Allah Almighty. He is not necessitous of any other and nor He needs descendants who may help Him in His works and nor courtiers or ministers are required by Him to help in running the management of His Sovereignty, and nor there is any weakness or defect in Him; because of which He may need any supporter or protecting friend. All the creatures have been bowing before Him. No one can claim that he is companion or equal of God Almighty. While no one can be equal of Him then how can anyone surpass Him? Therefore, He is The Greatest.


You should have the same Belief in your heart, and disclose the same also by your thoughts, your tongue and your deeds in all respect that Allah Almighty is the Greatest. No such word should come out from your mouth by which there is a doubt of His insult whether that is very little (Let us flee to God). Your heart should be sure that there is no such work which cannot be done by Allah Almighty due to which one would have to approach any other save Him. Your knowledge will be perfect at that time when you will believe that Allah Almighty is The Greatest, The Beneficent and The Omnipotent. We should recite following words maximum time

سبحان الله والحمد لله ولا اله الا الله والله اكبر


(SubhaanAllaah walhamduLillaah wa-laa ‘ilaaha ‘illAllaahu Wallaahu Akbar), Subhaan Allaah (سبحان الله) means “Allah is free from imperfection”. Al-hamdu Lillaah (الحمد لله) means “All praise is due to Allah”. wa-laa ‘ilaaha ‘illAllaahu (There is no God but Allah), Allaahu Akbar (الله أكبر ) means “Allah is Greatest”.


Prophet Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) has said that these are some of the dearest phrases of Allah Swt and has lot of benefits in reciting these.
