The Holy Prophet Muhammad [s] once said to his Companions [r]: One day Prophet Musa [a] prayed to Almighty Allah to teach him some form of dhikr for his remembrance. Allah commanded him to recite, “Lailaha illallah (There is no god but Allah)!” Musa [a] said, “O my Lord! but this dhikr is recited by all of creation.” Again came the reply, “Recite ‘Lailaha illallah!’ ” Musa [a] asked once more “My Sustainer, I want something special, meant for me alone.” Almighty Allah said, “ O Musa! If the seven heavens and the seven earths were placed in one pan of a scale, and the words ‘La-ilaha illallah’ (There is no god but Allah) in the other, these words would outweigh the heavens and earths together.”
