تُسَبِّحُ لَهُ السَّمَاوَاتُ السَّبْعُ وَالْأَرْضُ وَمَن فِيهِنَّ ۚ وَإِن مِّن شَيْءٍ إِلَّا يُسَبِّحُ بِحَمْدِهِ وَلَٰكِن لَّا تَفْقَهُونَ تَسْبِيحَهُمْ ۗ إِنَّهُ كَانَ حَلِيمًا غَفُورًا
The seven heavens and the earth and whatever is in them exalt Him. And there is not a thing except that it exalts [ Allah ] by His praise, but you do not understand their [way of] exalting. Indeed, He is ever Forbearing and Forgiving. (Surah al Isra:44)
Everything that dwells in the Heavens and the Earth, from the tiniest atom in our bodies to the largest mountain, exalts Allah. They do Tasbih with Hamd. Tasbih is to declare Allah is far above any imperfection. And Hamd is to affirm all the perfect attributes, it is to praise the Most Perfect One.
So everything in this universe is doing Tasbih through their condition by being obedient and subservient to Allah. And they also do Tasbih through their words and languages, by sanctifying Him, venerating Him, glorifying Him and magnifying Him because of His Perfection.
Nuh (as) said to his son, “I will give you some advice. I command you with two things and I forbid you from two things. I command you with, ‘laa ilaaha illAllah’ for indeed, if the seven heavens and the seven earths were placed in a pan (of the scale) and ‘laa ilaaha illAllah’ on (the other) pan, it would surely outweigh them. And if the seven heavens and the seven earths were a closed circle, it would be split by ‘laa ilaaha illAllah’. And (I instruct you to say), ‘SubhanAllahi wa bihamdihi’ for it is the prayer of every thing and by it everything is given its provision. And I forbid you from shirk and pride.” [al-Adab al-Mufrad].
The Best Words:
The Messenger of Allah ( ﷺ ) was asked as to which words are the best. He ( ﷺ ) said, “That which Allah choose for His angels and His servants, ‘SubhanAllahi wa bihamdihi’.” [Muslim].
