Salat-ul-Tasbeeh (Glorification Prayer)
Ibn Abbas reported that the Prophet (Sal-allahu-aleihi-wasallam) said to Abbas bin Abdul Muttalib:
When you become free from reading in the first rakat while you are standing, you shall utter 15 times
"Subhan Allah-e-Wa-Al Hamd-o-lillah-e-Wala-Ilaha-Ilallaho-Wallaho-Akbar" [Glory to be Allah and All Praise is for Allah and There is no deity but Allah and Allah is the Greatest];
then you shall bow down and utter it 10 times while you are in bowing;
next you shall raise up your head from bowing and utter it 10 times;
next you shall prostrate down and utter it 10 times while you are in prostration;
next you shall raise up your head from prostration and utter it 10 times;
next you shall prostrate down again and utter it 10 times in prostration;
next you shall raise up your head and utter it ten times.
Illustration: There are seven postures in a rakat of Salat, in Salat Tasbeeh you need to utter 75 times
1-After Fatiha and Sura (15 Times)
2-In Rukoo (10 Times)
3-Before bowing down (10 Times)
4-In Sajda (First) (10 Times)
5- In sitting between two Sajda (10 Times)
6- In Sajda (Second) (10 Times)
- Before standing up for next rakat; and before Qaedah (Tahiyat) in the 2nd & last rakat. (10 Times)
7- Return to standing position after completing 1st & 3rd rakat. (10 Times)
This salat is very pleasing, will be completed in 15-20 minutes inshaAllah. Please do not count the numbers while praying, instead you can press your fingers to remember. In case, you utter the less Tasbeeh in one posture, complete the numbers in the next posture.
Abu Dawud, Ibn Majah, Tirmizi narrated a similar Hadith from Abu Rafe and Baihaqi narrated this Hadith in Dawat-ul-Kabir. Hadith No.1252 of Mishkat Al-Masabih.
