Namaz-e-Tasbeeh or Salatul Tasbih is a special prayer having great virtues and benefits. Even though it is not mandatory to perform namaz-e-tasbeeh, it is recommended in hadith that one should perform this prayer on daily basis if possible if not then once in week, if that is not also possible then once in month, if once cannot perform this prayer once in a month then once should perform it once in a year and even if that is not possible then it is greatly emphasized to offer namaz-e-tasbeeh at once in a life time. Hadith has described great virtues and benefits of namaz-e-tasbeeh.
Our Beloved Prophet Mohammed (s.a.w) said to his uncle (father’s brother) Sayyidna Abbas (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 (s.a.w) explained the taught the way to pray Salatul Tasbih and then said if you can pray this salah once a day, if you cannot 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)
Namaz-e-tasbeeh has the power through which a person’s lifetime sins are forgiven. Though it seems like a small act but the benefits and rewards against it are countless. What else a person needs when he has been told a very easy way through which one can wash off all the sins of the life. This is the greatness of our religion Islam. May Allah give us the strength to offer namaz-e-tasbeeh as much as we can.
Time To Pray:
There are four raka’ats performed at a time in this prayer and can be performed in any part of the day and night besides Zawal and Sunrise which are makrooh times, keeping in mind the forbidden times for performing Salaat (namaaz). It is a brilliant practice during the holy nights of Ramadan and on any other propitious night in a year.
