Great Reward Of Dhikr After Wuḍū

عَنْ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ الْخُدْرِيِّ ، قَالَ : مَنْ قَالَ إذَا فَرَغَ مِنْ وُضُوئِهِ : سُبْحَانَك اللَّهُمَّ وَبِحَمْدِكَ ، أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لاَ إلَهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ ، أَسْتَغْفِرُك وَأَتُوبُ إلَيْك ، خُتِمَتْ بِخَاتَمٍ ، ثُمَّ رُفِعَتْ تَحْتَ الْعَرْشِ ، فَلَمْ تُكْسَرْ إلَى يَوْمِ الْقِيَامَةِ.

From Abū Sa’eed al-Khuḍree Raḍi-Allāhu ‘Anhu who said: “Whoever says this when he finishes his Wuḍū;

‘Subḥaanak Allaahumma Wa Biḥamdika Ash-Hadu al-Laa Ilaaha Illaa Anta Astaghfiruka Wa Atoobu Ilayk’

(Glory be to you O Allāh and praise belongs to you, I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except You, I seek your forgiveness and I repent to you.)

(His speech) is then sealed, after that it is raised up to and placed under the Throne (of Allāh) then NOTHING will break it (i.e the seal) until the Day of Resurrection.”

⚠ Note: The scholars differ as to if this narration is Mawqoof (i.e whether this is the statement of a Companion) or its Marfū’ (attributed to Prophet ﷺ), however this is report of unseen which cannot be narrated by a Companion except if he heard from the Prophet ﷺ, and Allāh knows best, as for its Sanad there is NO DOUBT it’s an authentic narration like Ibn Ḥajar Raḥimahullāh mentioned in al-Futooḥāt ar-Rabbāniyyah. ⚠
