1. It is narrated that Ali (a.s.) used to recite this blessed supplication during the first ten days of Zilhajj. He used to say that if one recites the supplication: ‘Laa ilaaha illallaahu a’dadal layaalee wadduhoori laa ilaaha illallaahu a’dada amwaajil buh’oori laa ilaaha illallaahu wa rah’matuhu khairum mimmaa yaj-maoo’na laa ilaaha illallaahu a’dadash shauki wash shajari laa ilaaha illallaaha illallaahu a’dadash sha’ri wal wabari laa ilaaha illallaahu a’dadal h’ajari wal madari laa ilaaha illallaahu a’dada lamh’il u’yooni laa ilaaha illallaahu fil laili idhaa a’s-a’s wa fis’ s’ub- h’i idhaa tanaffasa laa ilaaha illallaahu a’dadar riyaah’i fil baraariyyi was’ s’ukhoori laa ilaaha illallaahu minal yaumi ilaa yaumi yunfakhu fis’ s’oor’ ten times during these ten days the Almighty Allah would reward him a rank equaling pearls and rubies in Paradise for each Tahleel. There would be a distance equal to that of traveling a hundred years on a fast vehicle between each rank. There would be a city on each level having a castle made of precious stone and those cities won’t be cut off from each other. They would have surrounding walls, forts, high-rises, houses, wives, beds, Hoorul Ein, food laid on tables, servants, rivers, trees, ornaments and dresses. No one can describe them. When that person comes out of grave, each and every hair on his body would be illuminated and seventy thousand angels would surround him and walk with him till the door of Paradise. When this person enters Paradise, the angels would follow him until they reach the city, whose outer appearance would be like that of a ruby and it would be like green emerald from inside. It will have all sorts of things created by Allah in Paradise. When they reach here, he would be told, “O loved one of Allah! Do you know which city is this and what all things it has?” He would reply, “I don’t know but who are you?” They would say, “We are angels. When you recited Laa ilaaha illallaah in the world, we saw you and this city along with the servants is for you. You would be given a better reward from the Almighty Allah. You will see in Darus Salaam, the neighborhood of Allah what He has given you. You will see that this reward would never be taken back.” The narrator says that one must recite this supplication much so that one is rewarded more.
