حَدَّثَنَا ‏ ‏أَبُو بَكْرِ بْنُ أَبِي شَيْبَةَ ‏ ‏حَدَّثَنَا ‏ ‏عَفَّانُ ‏ ‏حَدَّثَنَا ‏ ‏حَمَّادُ بْنُ سَلَمَةَ ‏ ‏عَنْ ‏ ‏أَبِي سِنَانٍ ‏ ‏عَنْ ‏ ‏عُثْمَانَ بْنِ أَبِي سَوْدَةَ ‏ ‏عَنْ ‏ ‏أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ ‏
أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ‏ ‏صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ‏ ‏مَرَّ بِهِ وَهُوَ يَغْرِسُ غَرْسًا فَقَالَ يَا ‏ ‏أَبَا هُرَيْرَةَ ‏ ‏مَا الَّذِي تَغْرِسُ قُلْتُ غِرَاسًا لِي قَالَ أَلَا أَدُلُّكَ عَلَى غِرَاسٍ خَيْرٍ لَكَ مِنْ هَذَا قَالَ بَلَى يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ قَالَ ‏ ‏قُلْ سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ وَالْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ وَلَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ وَاللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ يُغْرَسْ لَكَ بِكُلِّ وَاحِدَةٍ شَجَرَةٌ فِي الْجَنَّةِ

Abu Hurairah related that the Messenger of Allah passed by him while he was planting a seedling. So he enquired, “Abu Hurairah, what is it that you are planting?” I (i.e. Abu Hurairah) replied, “It is a plant for me.” He said, “Should I not direct you to plants which are better for you than this (one)?” He replied, “Indeed, O Messenger of Allah.” He said, “Say: Subhanallah, walhamdulillah, wa laa ilaaha illa Allah, wallahu akbar (Glory be to Allah, all praise be to Allah, there is none worthy of worhip except Allah, and Allah is the greatest). For each one, a tree will be planted for you in Jannah.”

(Sunan ibn Majah)
