It was reported from Abu ‘Abdur-Rahman Al-Hubli, from As-SunãbihI, from Mu’ädh bin Jabal, that the Messenger of Allah (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) held his hand and said: “0 Mu’adh! I swear by Allah, I love you. I swear by Allah, I love you. I advise you, 0 Mu’ãdh, that you never leave saying after every prayer,

[اللَّهُمَّ أَعِنِّي عَلَى ذِكْرِكَ وَشُكْرِكَ وَحُسْنِ عِبَادَتِكَ – O Allah! Help me in remembering You, thanking You, and perfecting my worship of You (1)].” And Mu’ãdh advised As-Sunãbihi with that, and As-Sunabihi advised Abu ‘Abdur-RahmAn with that. [2]
