Answer

(Fatwa: 805/673/B=1432)

We learn from hadith that reading tashib thrice in ruku and sajdah is good, five times is better while reading seven times is the best. However, if one offers long nafl salah he may read 9, 11, 13 and 15 times. There is no limit, but it should be noted that reciting tasbih in odd numbers is better.

Allah (Subhana Wa Ta’ala) knows Best
