“When the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) stood up to offer Salaat, he raised his hands until they were level with his shoulders, then he said the Takbeer (Allahu Akbar).” [Sahih Muslim]

The first reality proclaimed in the prayer, and in the call to prayer, is Allah’s greatness: “Allahu Akbar.”

“Allah is the Greatest” is repeated six times in the Adhaan. If you hear the Adhaan five times a day and repeat after it as is the Sunnah, then you hear or say it sixty times a day. If you add to this the number of times you say “Allahu Akbar” in your five daily prayers and the recommended Tasbeeh of “Allahu Akbar” 34 times after each Fardh prayer, then you see that a Muslim who prays regularly repeats this statement 466 times at least in the course of a single day.

A Clear Concept of The Creator

He is the Originator of the heavens and the earth. How can He have a
child when He has never had a consort? He has created everything and
has full knowledge of all things.
Such is God, your Lord; there is no deity other than Him, the Creator
of all things, so worship Him alone. He is the Guardian of everything.
No power of vision can encompass Him, whereas He encompasses all
vision; He is above all comprehension, yet is all-aware. (6:101-103)a-clear-concept-of-the-creatorPeace be upon you!
