Importance of Salatul Tasbih:
This article discusses the significance and benefits of praying Salat ul Tasbih.
Our Beloved Prophet Mohammed (S.A.W) once said to his uncle (father’s brother) Sayyiduna Abbass (may Allah be pleased with him).
“Oh, uncle! Shall I not give you Shall I not grant you Shall not award you Shall not do mercy on you. When you do ten things Allah will forgive your sins of the future, and of the past; new and old; those you have forgotten and those you did knowingly; big and small; hidden and revealed”. He then (SAW) clarified the way how to pray Salatul Tasbih. He said the person who prays this Salah one in a day or every Friday or one in every month or only one Time in a whole year and if this is not possible then at least one time in a lifetime.(Abu’Dawood and Tirimzi)
How to pray Salatul Tasbih?
Salatul Tasbih has four Rakat, and it can pray and read at any time a day. But do not pray (Namaz) on away time and sunrise sunset makrooh time because Islam does not allow to pray in these times. So, keep in your mind these forbidden times for performing Salat (namaaz). But it is preferred before Zuhr (Fatawa Alamgeeri)
The Tasbih to be read in Salatul Tasbih:
“Subhan Allahi Wal Hamdulillahi Wa Laa ilaha illal Laahu Wallahu Akbar.”
Here is the method of how to pray Salatul Tasbih. The goal is to recite above Tasbih 300 times in Four Rakah with the following method.
In the first rakaat, after reading Sana “Subhaana Kallahumma…”, read the above tasbih 15 times. Now recite Aaoz “Aoozubillah…”, Bismillah “Bismillah…”, Then read sura Fatiha and a Surah or minimum of three small Ayayhs then read the tasbih 10 times again. Go to Roku saying Takbeer (Allah Hoo Akbar), after reciting “Subhaana Rabbiyal Azeem” minimum of three times read the tasbih 10 times in Ruku. Saying “Samee Allahu Liman Hamidah Rabbana Lakal Hamdh” gets up from ruku to qiyam position.
Now read the tasbih 10 times. Go to Sajdah saying Takbeer (Allah Hoo Akbar) and after reciting “Subhaana Rabbiyal A’la” a minimum of three times read the tasbih ten times in Sajdah. Now go after first Sajdah go to Jalsa (sitting position) saying Takbeer (Allah Hoo Akbar). Sit in Jalsa read Tasbih ten times. Go to Sajood again saying Takbeer (Allah Hoo Akbar) and after reciting “Subhaana Rabbiyal A’la” a minimum of three times read the tasbih ten times in Sajdah again.
Get up to begin 2nd Rakat saying Takbeer (Allah Hoo Akbar).
Do Rakat #2 in the same fashion, but before reading Bismillah “Bismillah…”, and Surah Fatiha, read the Tasbeeh 15 times. Follow the rest as you did in the first Rakat. After the second Sajdah of Second Rakat sits in Qaidah Oola (first sitting) reads Attahiyat, Durood, and Dua then get up for 3rd Rakat without saying, Salam.
Begin third Rakat, just like the first Rakat, with Sana “Subhaana Kallahumma…”, read the above tasbih 15 times. Follow the rest as you did in the first Rakat until you sit for Qaidah Akihra (last sitting) after the second sajdah of the fourth Rakah.
In Qaidah Akihra Attahiyat, Durood, Dua finish Salah with Salam.
