Salaam and Greetings of Peace:
The Messenger of God (pbuh) once heard a man supplicating: ‘O God, I supplicate You bearing witness that You are indeed God, that there is no deity but You, the One, the Self-Sustaining; who does not beget nor was begotten; who has no equal.’
Upon which, the Prophet (pbuh) said, ‘ By the One in whose hand is my soul, he has supplicated God by His supreme name. When God is called upon by it, He answers; When asked for something through it, He gives.’
– A Hadith taken from Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya’s book – The Invocation Of God.
