THANK ALLÂH SUBHÂNAHU WA TA’ÂLÂ EVERYDAY FOR ALL THE JOINTS IN YOUR BODY WHICH MAKE YOU WALK AND MOVE, BY MAKING THIS SIMPLE YET POWERFUL DHIKR.
The Messenger of Allâh salallâhu alaihi wa sallam said: “Every human was created with three hundred and sixty joints. Whoever says أَكْبَرُ اللَّهُ – Allâhu ’Akbar (Allâh is the Greatest), الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ – al-hamdu lillâh (All praise and thanks be to Allâh), لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ – Lâ ’ilâha ’illallâh (There is none worthy of worship in truth but Allâh), سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ – Subhânallâh (Glory be to Allâh), أَسْتَغْفِرُ اللَّهَ – ’Astaghfirullâh (I seek Allâh’s forgiveness), removes a stone, a thorn or a bone from the road, enjoins what is right and forbids what is wrong, up to the equal number of these three hundred and sixty joints, then he walks that day having moved himself away from Hell. [Muslim]
There are three hundred and sixty joints in a human body. It is these joints which enable him to work and make all kinds of movements. If man’s body did not have these joints it would have been impossible for him to sit, stand, lie, move and make use of different organs of his body. Thus every joint is a blessing for which one must express gratitude to Allâh. It is yet another blessing of Allâh subhânahu wa ta‘âlâ that He has also told man a very easy way of thanksgiving which can be practiced even by the poorest man in the world. [Riyâdhus-Sâlihîn]
