Salatul Tasbeeh - Prayer to seek forgiveness from all sins

Benefits of Salatul Tasbeeh

Our Beloved Prophet Mohammed (Sallallaho Alihiwassallam) 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 I not award you Shall I not do mercy on you When you do 10 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. Then he (Sallallaho Alihiwassallam) explained the taught the way to pray Salatul Tasbih and then said if you can pray this salah once a day, if you can not pray once a day then every Friday, and even if this is not possible then once a month and even if this is not possible then once a year and even if this is not possible then at least once in a lifetime (Abu’Dawood & Tirimzi)

Method to perform Salatul Tasbeeh

This salaat (namaz) is offered in four raka'at at a time and can be read in any part of the day and night besides Zawal and Sunrise and Sunset makrooh times, keeping in mind the forbidden times for performing Salat (namaaz).

The Tasbeeh to be read in Salaatul Tasbeeh

" Subhaan Allahi Wal Hamdulillahi Wa Laa ilaha illal Laahu Wallahu Akbar "

Goal is to recite above Tasbeeh 300 times in four Raka'at of Salat with the following method.

Special notes regarding Salatul Tasbeeh

When performing Salat-ul-Tasbeeh, the normal Takbeers and Tasbeehs of Ruku, Sajda, etc. are separate from that of the extra Tasbeehs. The Tasbeeh that must be recited 75 times in each Rakaat is 'additional'. Therefore, you must say Allaahu Akbar (like normally) when moving from one posture to another in any of the Rakaats.
Thanaa and Ta'awwudh is only recited in the beginning of the first Rakaat of any Salat. Only Tasmiyyah should be recited at the beginning of the other Rakaats after reciting the Tasbeeh 15 times.
