Many Muslims display in their residences Subhan Allah wall art such as a Subhan Allah wall frame, in which the Arabic expression, which means ‘Glory be to Allah’ in English, is written or painted or printed in calligraphic style.

Listed here are some Sahih Hadith, authentic prophetic narrations, that elucidate the virtues and benefits of reciting Subhan Allah:

Sa’d bin Abi Waqqas (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: We were with the Prophet (peace be upon him) when he asked, “Is anyone of you unable to earn a 1000 good deeds?” One of those present asked: “How can one earn 1000 good deeds in a day?” He (peace be upon him) answered, “By saying: Subhan Allah a 100 times, then 1000 good deeds will be recorded for him or 1000 sins will be blotted out from his record.” (Muslim)

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said, “Whoever says SubhanAllah wa biHamdihi (Glory be to Allah and Praise Him) a 100 times during the day, his sins are wiped away, even if they are like the foam of the sea.” (Bukhari)

Abu Dharr reported that Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said, “Shall I tell you the words that Allah loves the most?” I said: “Yes, tell me, O Messenger of Allah.” He (peace be upon hi) said: “The words dearest to Allah are: SubhanAllah wa bihamdihi (Glory be to Allah and Praise Him)”. [Muslim, Tirmidhi]

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “A palm tree is planted for the reciter of SubhanAllahi ‘l-`adheem wa biHamdihi (Glory be to Allah, The Supreme, and Praise Him) in Paradise.” [Tirmidhi)

The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: “Two words are light on the tongue, weigh heavily in the balance, they are loved by the Most Merciful One: SubhanAllahi wa biHamdihi, Subhan-Allahi ‘l-`adheem (Glory be to Allah, and Praise, Glory be to Allah, the Supreme).”

[Bukhari, Muslim]

Abu Sa`id (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Perform the enduring goods deeds more frequently.” They asked, “What are these enduring good deeds?” The Prophet (peace be upon him) answered: Takbir [Allahu Akbar], Tahlil [la ilaha illallah], Tasbih [Subhan’Allah], Alhamdulillah, and  La hawla wa la quwwata illa billah.”

 Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “For me to say SubhanAllah, walHamdulilah, wa La illaha ilAllahu, waAllahu Akbar (Glory be to Allah, All Praise is for Allah, There is No God but Allah, Allah is the Greatest) is dearer to me and all that the sun rises upon (ie the whole world).” [Muslim]

Abd Allah ibn Mas’ud reported that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “During the Night Journey I met Ibrahim (AS) who said to me: ‘O Muhammad, convey my greetings to your Community, and tell them that the Paradise is of pure land, its water is sweet, and its expanse is vast, spacious and even. And its seedlings are SubhanAllah, walhamdulilah, wa la ilaha ilAllah, waAllahu Akbar.’” [Tirmidhi]

It is thus no wonder many Muslims like to display in their homes Subhan Allah wall art, such as a Subhan Allah wall frame.
