Tasbihaat To Recite

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

There are plenty of duas and tasbihaat for us to recite, that hold many virtues and rewards. They can be recited throughout the entire year; however what could be a better time to get into the routine than during the blessed month of Ramadan when the reward of all good deeds are increased immensely.

A few tasbihaat are mentioned below along with their rewards.

1. Recite abundantly the tasbihaat of:

Subhanallahi alhamdulillah la ilahi illah Allahu akbar la hawla wa la quwwata illah billah


It has been narrated in a hadith of Tirmidhi that saying Subhanallah 100 times in the morning and evening earns one the reward of 100 Hajj.

One who says Alhamdulillah in the morning and in the evening, it is as if he provided the Mujahideen (people going in Jihad) with horses or participates 100 times in Jihad.

One who says La ilaha illallah 100 times in the morning and evening, it is as if he frees 100 slaves belonging to the family of Hazrat Ismail (as).

While one who says Allahu akbar 100 times, nobody will be better than him on that day except one who says it the same number of times or more.

The above Arabic tasbih puts all the above together. Try and pray the above 100 times a day.

2. There is a more specific reward for reciting the Kalima:




La ilaha illallah

There is no God but Allah

Abu Darda (ra) narrates from the Prophet Muhammad (saw) that, "No person says La ilaha illallah 100 times without Allah raising him on the Day of Judgement with his face radiant like the full moon.
(Tabrani)

3. Sincere repentance (tawbah) should be done by either reciting:


Astaghfirullah

Or


Astaghfirullahal adheem aladhi la ila illah huwal hayyul qayyumu wa atoobu ilay

Set a daily target of how much Istighfaar to recite. 

Anas bin Malik (ra) narrates that the Prophet Muhammad (saw) was on his journey when he said, "Seek forgiveness". So, we asked for forgiveness. He said, "Complete it 70 times". So, we completed it. The Prophet (saw) then said, "No man and no woman seek forgiveness from Allah 70 times in a day without Allah forgiving him of 700 sins. A man or woman committing more than 700 sins in a day is certainly in loss".

4. Another tasbih to recite is:

 
Subhannallahi wa bihamdihi

Jabir (ra) narrates that the Prophet (saw) said, "He who says the above dua, a date palm is planted in Paradise for him".
(Tirmidhi)

5. Another tasbih to recite:



La hawla wa la quwwata illah billah

This tasbih is described as one of the treasures of Paradise in a Hadith of Bukhari.

Abu Hurayra (ra) narrates that the Prophet (saw) said, "He who says the above, it will be a cure for him from 99 ailments, the lowest of them being worry".
(Hakim)

To end, always try to keep the tongue moist with the remembrance of Allah - whilst standing, sitting and lying down. As we are told in the Ahadith, the only regret that the people of Paradise will have after entering Paradise is the time they spent in the world in which they do not remember Allah.

Remember, a true believer is he who speaks and deals with the people, he laughs and smiles with those around him yet his heart is always with Allah. His mind is never absent from the presence of Allah.

May we all reach such a stage - ameen.

Wasalaam!
