A sentence from the treasures of Paradise

[2. Surah Al-Baqarah : Ayah 43]

And keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate and bow down with those who bow down.

A sentence from the treasures of Paradise
[Sahih Bukhari: Volume 8, Book 77 'Al-Qadar', Number 607]

Narrated Abu Musa (Radi Allah Anhu): While we were with Allah's Apostle (sal-allahu-alleihi-wasallam) in a holy battle, we never went up a hill or reached its peak or went down a valley but raised our voices with Takbir. Allah's Apostle (sal-allahu-alleihi-wasallam) came close to us and said, "O people! Don't exert yourselves, for you do not call a deaf or an absent one, but you call the All-Listener, the All-Seer." The Prophet (sal-allahu-alleihi-wasallam) then said, "O 'Abdullah bin Qais! Shall I teach you a sentence which is from the treasures of Paradise? ( It is): 'La haula wala quwata illa billah. (There is neither might nor power except with Allah)."

Our Lord! accept from us; surely Thou art the Hearing, the Knowing.
