La Hawla Wala Quwwata Illa Billah Meaning

La Hawla Wala Quwwata Illa Billah Meaning :

There is a single fundamental fact that unites all Muslims: nothing in this world can occur without Allah’s will.

This is one of Islam’s core beliefs, and everyone who utters the common zikir understands it.

“la hawla wala quwwata illa billah”.

There is no power and no strength except with Allah.

It’s a brief but powerful phrase, Subhanallah.This claim—often referred to as Hawqala—is mentioned in more than ten hadith volumes where Prophet Muhammad (SAWS) instructs his disciples to recite this dhikr on a daily basis.

Many scholars have rated the authenticity of these hadiths as Sahih, or authentic, which is why we should try to live by this saying every day. 

la hawla wala quwwata illa billah (6 words) or you may recall la hawla wala quwwata illa billahil aliyyil azim, which is a little lengthier form. It is simple to recall and has a smooth pronunciation thanks to its rhythmic tone.

HADITH MENTIONING LA HAWLA WALA QUWWATA

The following Hadiths describe the Prophet (SAWS) saying this phrase:

It was narrated that Abu Musa said: ‘The Prophet (SAWS) heard me saying: ‘La hawla wa la quwwata illa billah (there is no power and no strength except with Allah).’ He said: ‘O ‘Abdullah bin Qais! Shall I not tell you of a word which is one of the treasures of Paradise?’ I said: ‘Yes, O Messenger of Allah.’ He said: ‘Say: La hawla wa la quwwata illa billah (There is no power and no strength except with Allah).’”

Say During Adhan

It was narrated that ‘Alqamah bin Waqqas said: “I was with Mu’awiyah when the Mu’adhdhin called the Adhan. Muawiyah said what the Mu’adhdhin said, but when he said: ‘Hayya ‘alas-salah (come to prayer),’ he said: ‘La hawla wa la quwwata illa Billah (There is no power and no strength except with Allah);’ and when he said: ‘Hayya ‘alal-falah (come to prosperity),’ he said: ‘La hawla wa la quwwata illa Billah (There is no power and no strength except with Allah).’ After that he said what the Mu’adhdhin said, then he said: ‘I heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) saying exactly like that.’”

Dua When Leaving The House

Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “Whoever says (upon leaving his house): ‘Bismillah, tawakkaltu ‘alallah, wa la hawla wa la quwwata illa billah [I begin with the Name of Allah; I trust in Allah; there is no altering of conditions but by the Power of Allah],’ it will be said to him: ‘You are guided, defended and protected.’ The devil will go far away from him”. [Abu Dawud, At-Tirmidhi and An- Nasa’i]. Abu Dawud reported it with this addition: “One devil will say to another: ‘How can you deal with a man who has been guided, defended and protected?”
