Hadith on Dua: Powerful supplication to Allah, morning and evening

Abu Ayyub reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Whoever says ten times when he awakens in the morning, ‘There is no God but Allah, alone without any partners to Him. He owns the dominion and for Him is all praise. He gives life and causes death, for He has power over all things,’ then Allah will record ten good times for each time he said it, Allah will erase ten sins by it, he will be raised by Allah ten degrees, it will be as if he has freed ten slaves, he will be guarded from the beginning of the day until its end, and he will not act on that day with anything else to overcome it. If he says it in the evening, then he will have the same.

عَنْ أَبِي أَيُّوبَ الْأَنْصَارِيِّ عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ أَنَّهُ قَالَ مَنْ قَالَ حِينَ يُصْبِحُ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ يُحْيِي وَيُمِيتُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ عَشْرَ مَرَّاتٍ كَتَبَ اللهُ لَهُ بِكُلِّ وَاحِدَةٍ قَالَهَا عَشْرَ حَسَنَاتٍ وَحَطَّ اللهُ عَنْهُ بِهَا عَشْرَ سَيِّئَاتٍ وَرَفَعَهُ اللهُ بِهَا عَشْرَ دَرَجَاتٍ وَكُنَّ لَهُ كَعَشْرِ رِقَابٍ وَكُنَّ لَهُ مَسْلَحَةً مِنْ أَوَّلِ النَّهَارِ إِلَى آخِرِهِ وَلَمْ يَعْمَلْ يَوْمَئِذٍ عَمَلًا يَقْهَرُهُنَّ فَإِنْ قَالَ حِينَ يُمْسِي فَمِثْلُ ذَلِكَ
