When Hazrat Musa (‘alaihis salaam) requested Allah Ta‘ala to grant him a special and exclusive bounty, Allah Ta‘ala commanded him to recite لا إلاه إلا الله in abundance.

Hazrat Abu Sa‘eed Khudri (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said:

عن أبي سعيد الخدري رضي الله عنه : عن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال : قال موسى عليه السلام : يا رب علمني شيئا اذكرك به وأدعوك به قال : يا موسى قل لا إله إلا الله قال : يا رب كل عبادك يقول هذا قال : قل لا إله إلا الله قال : لا إله إلا أنت يا رب إنما أريد شيئا تخصني به قال : يا موسى لو كان السماوات السبع وعامرهن غيري والأرضين السبع في كفة ولا إله إلا الله في كفة مالت بهن لا إله إلا الله (حاكم 1/528)

Hazrat Musa (‘alaihis salaam) asked Allah Ta‘ala, “O my Lord! Teach me something by which I may remember you (make your zikr) and call unto you in supplication!” Allah Ta‘ala replied, “O Musa! Reciteلا إلاه إلا الله ”On receiving this answer, Hazrat Musa (‘alaihis salaam) said, “O my Lord! All your servants recite this!” Allah Ta‘ala replied, “Recite لا إلاه إلا الله ”Hazrat Musa (‘alaihis salaam) said to Allah Ta‘ala, “There is no deity besides you, O my Lord! (However) I want something which is exclusive to myself.” Allah Ta‘ala replied, “O Musa! If the seven heavens and their inhabitants and the seven earths were placed into one pan of the scale and لا إلاه إلا الله was placed into the other pan, the pan which contained لا إلاه إلا الله would surely outweigh the other pan.”
