Q: What is Salaat-ut-Tasbeeh and when and how to perform it?


A: One should perform four rakaats nafil Salaah with the intention of Salaat-ut-Tasbeeh. After reciting the thana, one will recite the following dua fifteen times سُبْحَانَ اللهِ وَالْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ وَلَا إلَهَ إلَّا اللهُ وَاللهُ أكْبَرْ. Thereafter one will commence the qiraat by reciting Surah Faatiha and a Surah and before going into ruku’ one will recite the same dua ten times. Thereafter in each posture one will recite the same dua ten times (i.e. in ruku’, quamah, jalsa and in both sajdahs one will recite the dua ten times). In total this dua will be recited 75 times in each rakaat and 300 times in the entire four rakaats.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
