SALAAH GLORIFYING ALLAH (Tasbih Salaah/ Salat ut Tasbeeh)

Hadith & Seerah, The Teachings of the Holy Prophet, The Ways of the Prophet (SAWS) / Wednesday, June 9th, 2010

Hadrat Abdullah -ibn- Abbas (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu) narrated that the Messenger of ALLAH told his uncle, son of ‘Abdul Muttalib (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu):

Abbas my uncle, shall I not give you, shall not present you, shall I not tell you, shall I not produce in you ten things, by your doing which ALLAH will forgive you your sin, first and last, old and new, involuntary and voluntary, small and great, secret and open? You should perform Salaah four rakahs reciting in each on surah al-Fatihah (I) and a surah and when you finish the recitation in the first rak’ah you should say fifteen times while standing:

“Glory be to ALLAH, Praise be to ALLAH. There is no God but ALLAH. ALLAH is most great.”

Then you should bow and say it ten times while bowing. Then you should raise your head after bowing and say it ten times. Then you should prostrate yourself and say it ten times, then raise you head and say it ten times. Then you should prostrate again and say it ten times then you should sit and say it ten times then get up without (again) saying takbeer. That is seventy five times in a rakah. You should do that in four rak’ahs. If you can observe it once daily, do so, if not then once a week; if not then once in a month, if not then once in a year if not then once in your lifetime. [Abu Dawud – Mishkat]
