One day, The Messenger of Allāh صلى الله عليه وآله was sitting with a group of his companions, among them ʿAlī bin Abī Ṭālib عليه السلام, when he (the Prophet) said: “Whoever says “There is no god but Allāh” enters Paradise.”
Two men from his companions said: “We say “There is no god but Allāh!”
The Messenger of Allāh صلى الله عليه وآله said: “The testimony of “There is no god but Allāh!” is accepted only from him (ʿAlī ) and his Shiʿa, the ones whom our Lord has taken a covenant with.”
The two men said: “Then, we [also] say “There is no god but Allāh!”So the The Messenger of Allāh صلى الله عليه وآله placed his hand upon the head of ʿAlī عليه السلام and then said: “The sign of that (i.e. one who is a Shiʿa of ʿAlī, and his testimony is accepted), is he does not break his oaths given to him (ʿAlī ), does not sit in the place of his sitting, and does not reject his words.”

The Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله said:
Whoever exclaims Allāh is Greater (Kabbar Allāh, i.e. says Allāhu Akbar) one hundred times, is superior to the one who has emancipated one hundred slaves.
And whoever Glorifies Allāh (Sabbaḥ Allāh, i.e. says Subḥan Allāh) one hundred times, is superior to the one who rides one hundred sacrificial camels.
And whoever Praises Allāh (Ḥamid Allāh, i.e. says al-Ḥamdulillah) one hundred times, is superior to the one who burdens one hundred horses in the way of Allāh who are saddled, harnessed and readied with a rider.
And whoever says ‘There is no god but Allāh’ (Lā Ilāha Ila Allāh) one hundred times, is the most superior in people in deeds on that day, except for the one who increases.
He (the narrator, i.e. the Imām) said: This was made known to the rich, and they acted upon it. The poor came to the Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله and said: “Oh Messenger of Allāh, the rich people were informed of what you said, and they acted upon it.”
He replied: That is a bounty from Allāh, He grants to whoever He wills, and Allāh is the possessor of great bounty.
