Excerpt from the book:
The Benefit of Revering Bismillah
Nabi (PBUH) said that the person who picks up a thing on which bismillah is written and he respects it, Allah (SWT) will write his name among the Siddiqin. He will lessen the punishment on his parents even if they are disbelievers. Similarly, the person who writes bismillah beautifully, keeps it with him and respects it, Allah (SWT) writes down one thousand rewards for him, removes a thousand evils from him and grants him a higher status of one thousand stages.
Sa’id Ibn Abi Sakinah states that he heard the following hadith from Ali Ibn Abi Talib. He saw a person writing bismillah and said to him, “Write it beautifully for the person who writes it beautifully will be forgiven.”
The same Sa’id narrates that a person saw a piece of paper with bismillah written on it. He picked it up, kissed it and rubbed it on his eyes. He was forgiven for his sins.
