They said: “No, oh Messenger of Allāh!”
He said: “Shall I point you towards something, which has its roots is in Earth, and its branches are in the skies?”
They said: “Yes, Oh Messenger of Allāh!”
He said: “Each of you should say, after he finishes from his obligatory prayers, “Glory be to Allāh, and all Praise is due to Allāh, and there is no god by Allāh, and Allāh is Greater” (SubḥānAllāh, wal-Ḥamdulillah, wa Lā Ilāha Ila Allāh, Wa-Allāhu Akbar), thirty times – for their roots are on Earth, and their roots are in the skies – and they drive away the destruction, fire, drowining, falling into wells, being devoured by beasts, violent deaths, and the calamity which decends from the sky upon the servant on that day – and they are enduring good deeds.”

The Messenger of Allāh صلى الله عليه وآله said: “Whoever says ‘Glory be to Allāh’ (SubḥānAllāh), from it, Allāh will plant a tree for him in heaven.
And whoever says ‘all Praise is due to Allāh’ (al-Ḥamdulillah), from it, Allāh will plant a tree for him in heaven.
And whoever says ‘and there is no god by Allāh’ (Lā Ilāha Ila Allāh), from it, Allāh will plant a tree for him in heaven.
And whoever says ‘Allāh is Greater’ (Allāhu Akbar), from it, Allāh will plant a tree for him in heaven.”
Then a man from Quraysh said: “Oh Messenger of Allāh, our trees in heaven are, indeed, a lot!”
He replied: “Yes, however – beware of sending fire upon them, and you burn them. That is why Allāh, Mighty and Majestic, says: “O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and do not invalidate your deeds.1
