The Third Kalimah(Tumjeed) The third kalimah has a unique and very interesting story behind it.
It all started before Allah Ta’alah created Adam A.S. The Angels were trying to move the Arsh (Throne) of Allah Ta’alah but it was too heavy and wouldn’t budge.So they asked Almighty Allah for help.
Allah told them to recite “Subhanallah.” The Angels did as they were told and found that it gave them power and strength and they were able to move the Arsh. They liked this so much that they began constantly hymning “Subhanallah.”- (Glory be to Allah).
Then Allah created Adam A.S. When Allah blew life into Adam, the first thing he did was sneeze and say “Alhamdulillah” (All praise be to Allah)The angels liked this act so much that they added praise this to their and glorification of Allah. Thus the kalimah became “Subhanallah Walhamdulillah”
Hundreds of years passed and the Prophet Nooh A.S. was now on earth. For nine hundred years he proclaimed the oneness of Allah with the words “La illaha illalah.” (There is none worthy of worship. The Angels loved this act so much that they added this to the kalimah. Thus,the kalimah now became “Subhanallah Walhamdulillah Wa La illaha illalah.”
The Angels kept repeating this kalimah day and night. Many centuries passed and the Prophet Ebrahim A.S. (Abraham) was asked by Almighty Allah to sacrifice his beloved son Ismaeel A.S. He was about to slaughter his son and He needed something to give him the courage he needed to do this difficult deed. So he recited “Allahu Akbar.” (Allah is Great)
The Angels loved this act so much that they added “Allahu Akbar” to the kalimah. Thus the kalimah became “Subhanallah Walhamdulillah Wa La illaha illalah Allahu Akbar.”
More centuries passed. It was the night of Meraj, when our Beloved Prophet Muhammed S.A.W. ascended to the Heavens with Gibraeel A.S. There Gibraeel A.S. told Nabee S.A.W. the story and Nabee S.A.W. added the final part of the Kalmiah “Wala Howla Wa La Quwata Illah Billah Hil Aleyeel Azeem.”
Thus the kalimah now became Subhanallah Walhamdulillah Wa La illaha illalah Allahu Akbar Wala Howla Wa La Quwata Illah Billah Hil Aleyeel Azeem” (There is no Power and Might except from Allah, The Most High, The Great). And up to this day, this kalimah (or declaration of faith) buzzes around the Arsh of Almighy Allah.
There is a Hadith that says “3rd kalima” is such a great medicine that it cures every disease and the most minor disease it cures is “Sorrow” (Gham).
Last but not the least ALLAH says “spread the knowledge whatever u have. Its duty of each and every Muslim”
