Can you give me `as many ahadith as possible

Question

Can you give me `as many ahadith as possible` to answer the following question; “How can we increase our share of the Trees and Houses of Paradise?” (especially through dhikr).

 

For example;

 

Regarding the trees:

 

1) “Whoever says Subhan Allah il-`azim wa bi-hamdihi (Glory and praise be to Allah the Almighty), a palm tree will be planted for him in Paradise.” (Narrated as hasan (good) by al-Tirmidhi (3464), see; Nataa’ij al-Afkaar (1/104))

 

2) “I met Ibraaheem…and he said, “O Muhammad, tell your ummah that Paradise is a a land whose soil is good and its water is sweet. It is an empty plain, which will be planted with SubhaanAllaah, al-Hamdulillaah, and Allaahu Akbar” (Narrated by al-Tirmidhi with a hasan isnaad)

 

Etc…

 

Regarding the houses;

 

1) “A house will be built in paradise for every Muslim who offers twelve Rak’ah of optional salah  other than the obligatory salah  in day and night, to seek pleasure of Allah.” (Narrated by Muslim, Abu Dawud, Ahmad, an-Nasaa’ee, Ibn Maajah, and a similar hadith in al-Tirmidhi (380); it is saheeh).

 

2) “Whoever builds a mosque for Allaah (swt), Allaah (swt) will build something similar for him in Paradise”. (Narrated by Ahmad, al-Bukhaari, Muslim (828), at-Tirmidhi and Ibn Maajah)

 

Etc…

 

I’m not a scholar or a student of Islam, however, what I know is the following; there are many trustworthy (hasan/sahih) ahadith narrated on this subject about which the laymen (like me) don’t know much about and thus can’t act upon it. That’s why I have come to ask your help, and inshaAllah ta3ala, you will help me, and thus will gain your own share of the reward, bi idni Allah.
