The POWER Of DHIKR (Remembrance of Allah)

Conquest with The POWER Of DHIKR (Remembrance of Allah ) in war -

In Sahih Muslim, Abu Hurairah reported that the Prophet Muhammad inquired:
― "Have you heard of a city, of which part is in the sea? Yes, they said (understanding him to mean Constantinople). He said: ―The Last Hour shall not occur until 70,000 of the children of Isaac shall attack it. When they will come to it they will land down, but they will not fight with arms, nor shower it with arrows. They will only say: ‘There is no god but Allah, and Allah is the Greatest', and one of its sides will fall. They will recite it for the second time: ‘There is no god but Allah, and Allah is The Greatest', and another side of the city will fall. Afterwards they will recite for a third time: ‘There is no god but Allah, and Allah is the Greatest’, and then it will be opened to them, and they will enter it and acquire booty. While they will be dividing the spoils, a proclaimer will come to them and say: Verily Dajjal/Anti-Christ has come out. Then they will leave everything and return.”

The famous commander of the Muslims, Habib Ibn Musallama, whenever encountered with the enemy or attacked a stronghold of the enemy, he recited (Lahawla Wala quwwata illabilla).
One day he stormed a Byzantinian Castle and when he and all the Muslims recited these words with loud voice, the walls of the castle fell down. [source-'al Wabil as sayyib' by Ibn AlQayyim R.A.]
