Reciting Tasbeeh-e-Faatimi

Recommended Posts

Reciting Tasbeeh-e-Faatimi after every fardh salaah


On one occasion the poor Sahaabah (Radhiallahu Anhum) complained to Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) saying, “O Nabi of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), as far as the wealthy among your sahaabah are concerned, then they perform salaah and we also perform salaah, they observe nafl fast and we also observe nafl fast, so in that respect we are equal. However, with regards to spending wealth in the path of Allah Ta’aala, since they are endowed with wealth from the side of Allah Ta’aala, they are able to free slaves and generously spend in the path of Allah Ta’aala whilst we are unable to do so. Hence, we are deprived of the great merits and abundant rewards received through giving alms for the cause of Deen.”

Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) then taught them the tasbeeh-e-Faatimi, exhorting them to recite after every fardh salaah, 33 times ‘Subhaanallah’, 33 times ‘Alhamdulillah’ ,34 times‘Allahu Akbar’ and ‘Laa ilaaha illallah’ 10 times. Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) then told them that if you recite this tasbeeh you will surpass those before you, and those after you will not be able to reach your status and position. There will be no one more superior to you except those who also practice upon this. The poor Sahaabah (Radhiallahu Anhum) immediately commenced reciting this tasbeeh after the five daily salaah (as per the instruction of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)). When the wealthy Sahaabah (Radhiallahu Anhum) learnt about this, they also began reciting it. The poor Sahaabah (Radhiallahu Anhum) returned to Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) and complained, “O Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), the wealthy have learnt about this and they also have began reciting this tasbeeh." (i.e. they are equal to us in this also, with the virtue of charity remaining exclusive to them).

Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) replied, “This is the bounty of Almighty Allah Ta’aala. He grants it to whomsoever He pleases.”

(Mishkaat Shareef, Vol 1, Pg 89, Tirmidhi Sharif  Vol 1 Pg. 94)

Are you Stressed?



I tend to get stressed out very easily. And because of that I often get anxiety attacks leaving me sick and unable to sleep. Is there any specific dua for anxiety?



In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.


In this world of means, we have to adopt means to fulfill our needs and overcome our challenges. We then make Dua to Allah to put Barakah in the means we have adopted and to make the means successful and effective. Your anxiety attack due to stress is a medical condition. You should consult your physician and follow his/her advise.


Reading Tasbeeh- Faatimi after every Fardh Salaah is very effective against stress and anxiety.


Tasbeeh- Faatimi is to recite:


• 33 times Subhan’Allah( Pure is Allah)• 33 times Alhamdulillah(All praise is due to Allah)• 34 times Allahu Akbar( Allah is the greatest)


Thereafter make Dua to Allah for your needs.


And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

Different Narrations



There are different narrations with the most well known being reading tasbih & tahlil 33 times and takbir 34 times. My question is whether one could read it once?


In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.




Tasbih Fatimi is the prayer given by the Prophet of Allah (SAW) to Saaidah Fatima (RA) when she asked the Prophet of Alllah (SAW) for a servant.


The full Hadith is that it was reported by Saaiduna Abu Hurairah (RA) that Saaidah Fatimi (RA) had come to the Prophet of Allah (SAW) asking him for a servant. He said, “ Shall I not guide you to what is better than a servant? Read Tasbih of Allah 33 times and Tahmid of Allah 33 times and Takbir of Allah 34 times at the time of each prayer and at the time of your sleep.” (Mishkat P209 V1 Sahih Muslim)


One should recite the aforementioned tasbih, tahlil 33 times and takbir 34 times. However if a person is busy and does not have time to complete the above dua, then by merely reading each one of them 10 times will suffice and one will be rewarded as well.


It is reported by Saaiduna Abdullah Ibn-Amr bin- Aas (RA) that the Prophet of Allah (SAW) said:


“There are two virtuous deeds which no Muslim does but enter paradise. Behold they are easy and those who act upon them are few. He shall recite Tasbih of Allah 10 times at the end of each prayer and his Tahmids 10 times and his Takbirs 10 times.” (Mishkat P211 Sunan Abu DawudP 335 v2 Sunan Tirmizi P178 v2)


If a person does not have time to recite even that then by reciting tasbih and tahlil once there are many virtues.


It is narrated by Saaiduna Ibn Abbas (RA) that the Propeht of Allah (SAW) said:


“Those who will first be called to Paradise on the Day of Judgement will be those who praised Allah secretly and openly.” (Mishkat P201)


Saaiduna Ibn Masud (RA) narrates that the Propeht of Allah (SAW) said:


“I met Ibrahim (AS) on the night I was taken to Paradise. He said: “O Muhammad! Convey my greeting to your followers and inform them that Paradise is of pure earth and of sweet water and it has got vast fields. Its plantations are glorifications to Allah (Tasbih) and Praise of Allah (Tahlil) and there is no God but Allah (La Illaha Illalah) and Allah is the greatest. (Takbir)       (Mishkat P202)


Only Allah Knows Best.

One should recite tasbeeh-e-Faatimi after every salaah i.e. 33 times Suhbaanallah, 33 times Alhamdulillah, 33 times Allahu Akbar, and complete the hundred by reciting: 

لَا إلَهَ إلَّا اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيْكَ لَهُ لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيْر

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه عن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم من سبح الله في دبر كل صلاة ثلاثا وثلاثين وحمد الله ثلاثا وثلاثين وكبر الله ثلاثا وثلاثين فتلك تسعة وتسعون وقال تمام المائة لا إله إلا الله وحده لا شريك له له الملك وله الحمد وهو على كل شيء قدير غفرت خطاياه وإن كانت مثل زبد البحر ( صحيح مسلم رقم 597)

Hadhrat Abu Hurairah (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “The one who recites after the fardh salaah tasbeeh (Subhaanallah) 33 times, tahmeed (Alhamdulillah) 33 times, takbeer (Allahu Akbar) 33 times, and completes the hundred by reciting

لَا إلَهَ إلَّا اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيْكَ لَهُ لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيْر

his previous (minor) sins will be forgiven even though it be as much as the foam of the ocean.”
