Abu Hurairah (RA) reported: The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, “There are two statements that are light for the tongue to remember, heavy in the Scales and are dear to the Merciful:

Subhan-Allahi wa bihamdihi, Subhan-Allahil-Azim

Glory be to Allah and His is the praise, (and) Allah, the Greatest is free from imperfection”

The Hadith above verifies that man’s religious actions carry weight however small they might seem. On the Day of Judgement, his actions will be cast into the balance and Allah will award the actions with weight i.e. sawab. The utterance of the above two statements may seem light and easy for the tongue yet their weight in terms of sawab is immense. Hence every Muslim should make it a practice to repeat them frequently in his dhikr. Another thing that the hadith underlines about the two statements is that they are dearest to Allah.
