La Hawla Wala Quwwata Illa Billahil Aliyyil Azeem Benefits

The phrase indicates that whatever happens in our lives is always under Divine control and everything else comes second to that reality. We may think we have free will but at the end of the day it is God who decides what happens next in our lives; whether it be good or bad, joyous or sad, prosperous or impoverished.

Generally, people think this is just a Dua that is recited for protection from the devil (shaitan), but it has far immense benefits.

One should recite this dua when he wakes up at night and before going to sleep, Allah will protect him from all evil and will guard his bloodline from any kind of evil eye. In sha Allah.

We should try to recite this dua at least 10 times daily.

Hazrat Muhammad (ﷺ) said: One of the treasures of Paradise is Lahaula Walakuata Illabillah aliyil Azeem. This in itself is a great merit of this surah.
