Praise be to Allaah.
May Allaah reward you with good for this concern and eagerness to do good and righteous deeds during this blessed month.Â
To the good deeds that you have mentioned may be added charity, feeding the poor, going for âUmrah and observing iâtikaaf for those who are able to do so.Â
As for the words that you can repeat whilst you are working, these include tasbeeh (saying Subhaan Allaah (Glory be to Allaah)), tahleel (saying Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah (There is no god but Allaah)), takbeer (saying Allaahu akbar (Allaah is most Great)), praying for forgiveness, making duâaaâ and responding to the muezzin. Keep your tongue moist with the remembrance of Allaah and seek a great reward with a few words which you can utter. For every tasbeehah you will have (the reward of) one charity, for every tahmeedah (saying Alhamdulillah (Praise be to Allaah)) you will have (the reward of) one charity, for every takbeerah you will have (the reward of) one charity, and for every tahleelah you will have (the reward of) one charity.Â
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: âEvery personâs every joint must perform a charity every day the sun comes up, every tasbeehah is a charity, every tahmeedah is a charity, every tahleelah is a charity, every takbeerah is a charity, enjoining what is good is a charity, forbidding what is evil is a charity, and if you do two rakâahs at duha time (the forenoon), that may be sufficient.â Narrated by Muslim, 720.Â
And he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: âTwo words which are light on the tongue and heavy in the Balance, and beloved to the Most Merciful: Subhaana Allaah wa bihamdih, subhaan Allaah il-âAzeem (Glory and praise be to Allaah, glory be to Allaah the Almighty).â Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 6682; Muslim, 2694.Â
And he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: âWhoever says âSubhaan Allaah il-âAzeem wa bi hamdih (Glory and praise be to Allaah the Almighty),â a palm tree will be planted for him in Paradise.â Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 3465; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi.Â
And he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: âWhoever says âAstaghfir Allaah ul-âazeem alladhi laa ilaaha illa huwa al-hayy ul-qayyoom wa atoobu ilayh (I seek the forgiveness of Allaah the Almighty, beside Whom there is no other god, and I repent to Him),â will be forgiven even if he fled from the battlefield.â Narrated by Abu Dawood, 1517; al-Tirmidhi, 3277â classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh Abi Dawood.Â
And he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: âThere is no Muslim on earth who prays to Allaah for something but Allaah will grant him it, or divert an equivalent evil from him, so long as he does not pray for sin or the severing of family ties.â A man among the people said: âThen we will pray a great deal.â He said: âAllaah is most generous.â Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 3573; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi.Â
And he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: âWhen you hear the muezzin, say what he says, then send blessings upon me, for whoever send one blessing upon me, Allaah will send ten blessings upon him. Then ask Allaah to grant me al-waseelah, which is a position in Paradise which will be attained by only one of the slaves of Allaah, and I hope that I will be the one. Whoever asks for al-waseelah for me, intercession will be granted for him.â Narrated by Muslim, 384.Â
And he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: âWhoever says when he hears the call to prayer, âAllaahumma rabba hadhhiâl-daâwat il-taammah waâl-salaat il-qaaâimah, aati Muhammadan al-waseelah waâl-fadeelah wabâathhu maqaaman mahmoodan alladhi waâadtahu (O Allaah, Lord of this perfect call and the prayer which is about to begin, grant Muhammad al-waseelah (a station in Paradise) and al-fadeelah (a rank above the rest of creation), and raise him to the praised position that You have promised),â my intercession will be granted for him on the Day of Resurrection.â Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 614.Â
