قال الفقيه أبي الليث رحمه الله تعالى: مَنْ حَفِظَ سَبْعَ كَلِماَتٍ فَهُوَ شَرِيْفٌ عِنْدَ اللهِ تَعَالَى وَالْمَلَائِكَةِ وَيَغْفِرُ اللهُ ذُنُوْبَهُ وَلَوْ كَانَتْ مِثْلُ زَبَدِ الْبَحْرِ وَيَجِدُ حَلَاوَةَ الطَّاعَةِ وَيَكُونُ حَيَاتُهُ وَمَمَاتُهُ خَيْرًا
Artinya “Al-Faqih Abil Laits rahimahullahu ta’ala said: ‘Whoever memorizes seven (7) phrases, he will be honored by Allah Ta’ala and the angels. Allah will forgive his sins even if they are as numerous as the foam of the sea, and he will find the sweetness of obedience, and his life and death will be good’.” (Muhammad Nawawi bin Umar Al-Bantani, Nashaihul Ibad, page 33).

1. Basmalah
A phrase of encouragement that should be uttered every time we begin something, especially a good deed. Basmalah is the initial key that invites blessings and mercy from Allah SWT. By reciting basmalah, we invite good fortune in every step we take. It serves as the first step that guides us on the right path, illuminating our way with light and courage. So, never forget the miracle hidden in basmalah when starting anything.

كُلُّ أَمْرٍ ذِيْ بَالٍ لَا يُبْدَأُ فِيْهِ بِبِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ فَهُوَ أَقْطَعْ
Artinya: “Rasulullah saw bersabda: ‘Tiap urusan penting yang tidak diawali dengan ‘bismillaahir rahmaanir rahiim’, maka akan terputus dari rahmat Allah.”

2. Hamdalah
Expressions of gratitude that should be said every time someone completes an activity. The phrase “alhamdulillah” signifies thankfulness and acknowledgment of all the blessings given by Allah SWT.

قال العلماء : فيستحب البداءة بالحمد لله لكل مصنف ، ودارس ، ومدرس ، وخطيب ، وخاطب ، وبين يدي سائر الأمور المهمة
Artinya: “It is recommended to begin with ‘alhamdulillah’ for every author, student, teacher, preacher, and in all important matters.” (Imam an-Nawawi, al-Adzkâr an-Nâwâwî, [Beirut: Dâr Kutub Islamiyah, 2004 M], vol. 1, p. 172.)

3. Istighfar
Istighfar is the act of seeking forgiveness from Allah (by saying “astaghfirullah”) that should be done when someone realizes they have said something inappropriate or possibly committed other mistakes. It is a form of apologizing to Allah for improper actions or words.

Why do we perform istighfar in such situations? The reason is to seek forgiveness from Allah SWT. In Islam, Allah is the Most Forgiving and Most Merciful. By saying istighfar, we acknowledge our mistakes, repent, and hope that Allah will forgive us. This action reflects awareness of sin and the effort to improve oneself. Istighfar is a way to cleanse the heart and seek forgiveness from Allah after realizing our mistakes, including when we say something that is not as intended.

فَقُلْتُ اسْتَغْفِرُوْا رَبَّكُمْ اِنَّهٗ كَانَ غَفَّارًا
Artinya: “Lalu, aku (Nabi Nuh) berkata (kepada mereka): ‘Mohonlah ampun kepada Tuhanmu. Sesungguhnya Dia Maha Pengampun’.” (Qur’an, Surah Nuh: 10)

Reading istighfar can also prevent calamity, as stated in the Qur’an, Surah Al-Anfal: 33:
وَمَا كَانَ اللّٰهُ مُعَذِّبَهُمْ وَهُمْ يَسْتَغْفِرُوْنَ
Artinya: “Allah will not punish them while they seek forgiveness.”

4. Insyaallah
The phrase “insyaallah” is used when someone desires something. This phrase, derived from the Qur’an, literally means ‘if Allah wills’. The use of “insyaallah” reflects our belief in Allah’s power to determine everything.

In daily life, saying “insyaallah” is a way to show our awareness of Allah’s will in everything we do. It is a reminder that all our plans and efforts are entirely dependent on His will. By saying “insyaallah,” we submit all matters to Him and recognize that whatever happens is His will.

وَلَا تَقُوْلَنَّ لِشَا۟يْءٍ اِنِّيْ فَاعِلٌ ذٰلِكَ غَدًا، اِلَّآ اَنْ يَّشَاۤءَ اللّٰهُ
Artinya: “And never say of anything, ‘I will do that tomorrow,’ except [when adding], ‘If Allah wills’.” (Qur’an, Surah Al-Kahfi: 23-24)

5. Hauqalah
The phrase “hauqalah” or ‘la hawla wala quwwata illa billahil ‘aliyyil ‘azhim’ should be said when facing situations that are considered undesirable. This phrase reflects our awareness of our limitations and dependence on Allah’s strength and majesty.

In difficult moments or when faced with undesirable situations, saying “la hawla wala quwwata illa billahil ‘aliyyil ‘azhim” is a way to acknowledge that we have no power or strength without His intervention. It is a form of humility and submission to Allah’s majesty, reminding us that everything happens by His permission and will.

وروي في الخبر أيضا إذا نزل بالإنسان مهم وتلا لا حول ولا قوة إلا بالله العلي العظيم ثلا ثمائة فرج الله عنه أي أقلها ذلك ذكره شيخنا يوسف في حاشيته على المعراج
Artinya, “It is narrated in the hadith that if anxiety strikes a person, and he reads Lā haula wa lā quwwata illā billāhil ‘aliyyil azhīmi 300 times, Allah will open a way out for him, meaning that Allah will lessen his burden. This is mentioned by our teacher, Sheikh Yusuf in his Hasyiyah Mi’raj.” (Nawawi Al-Bantani, Kasyifatus Saja, page 5).

6. Tarji’
The phrase tarji’, “innalillahi wa inna ilaihi raji’un,” should be said when someone is afflicted with a calamity. This phrase reflects our awareness of our origins from Allah SWT and our return to Him.

In situations of sorrow, saying “innalillahi wa inna ilaihi raji’un” is a way to remind ourselves that everything comes from Allah and that we will all return to Him. It is an expression of humility and patience in facing trials, reminding us that we are His servants subject to His decrees.

اَلَّذِيْنَ اِذَآ اَصَابَتْهُمْ مُّصِيْبَةٌۗ قَالُوْٓا اِنَّا لِلّٰهِ وَاِنَّآ اِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُوْنَ
Artinya: “Who, when faced with a disaster, say, ‘Indeed we belong to Allah, and indeed to Him we will return’.” (Qur’an, Surah Al-Baqarah: 156)

7. Tauhid
The kalimat tauhid, “laa ilaaha illallaah Muhammadur rasulullah,” should be recited daily by a person. This phrase is a declaration of the oneness of Allah and the prophethood of Muhammad SAW.

In Islam, reciting the kalimat tauhid is an

affirmation of belief in the oneness of Allah and the prophethood of Muhammad. This phrase strengthens a person’s faith and maintains their spiritual strength. By reciting this phrase regularly, one acknowledges that there is no god but Allah and Muhammad is His messenger.

Thus, this kalimat tauhid is considered very important in a Muslim’s life, as it is seen as the key to paradise and a reminder of the foundational faith that must be diligently maintained every day.

مُعَاذَ بْنِ جَبَلٍ قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: مَنْ كَانَ آخِرَ كَلَامِهِ لَا إِلٰهَ إِلَّا الله دَخَلَ الْجَنَّةَ
Artinya: “From Mu’adz bin Jabal radhiyallahu ‘anhu, he said: ‘The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: ‘Whoever’s last words are La ilaha illallah (there is no god but Allah) will enter Paradise’.”
