Hadith Loot to the Cause of Allah - 1st Rajab

Loot to the Cause of Allah - 1st Rajab 1431 (13th June 2010)

Narrated 'Ali (Radi-Allahu 'anhu):

Fatima complained of what she suffered from the hand mill and from
grinding, when she got the news that some slave girls of the booty had been
brought to Allah's Apostle (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam). She went to him
to ask for a maid-servant, but she could not find him, and told 'Aisha of
her need. When the Prophet (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) came, Aisha
informed him of that. The Prophet (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) came to
our house when we had gone to our beds. (On seeing the Prophet) we were
going to get up, but he said, 'Keep at your places,' I felt the coolness of
the Prophet's feet (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) on my chest. Then he
said, "Shall I tell you a thing which is better than what you asked me for?
When you go to your beds, say: 'Allahu Akbar (i.e. Allah is Greater)' for
34 times, and 'Alhamdu Lillah (i.e. all the praises are for Allah)' for 33
times, and Subhan Allah (i.e. Glorified be Allah) for 33 times. This is
better for you than what you have requested."
