ASSALAMUALAIKUM, PLEASE ANSWER THE FOLLOWING JAZAKALLAH.Q1-THE TWELVE TASBEEHS OF THE KALIMAH TAYYIBAH WHICH IS DONE ALOUD IN CONGREGATION BY THE BUZRUGS IS THIS PROVEN BY HADITH? IF THE ANSWER IS YES WHAT ARE THE AHAADITH WITH REFERENCE OF KITAAB? WASSALAAM


Answer:

                                                                

A Muttafaq ‘Alaihi (agreed upon) Hadith is narrated wherein Ibne Abbas (R.A.) says that:  “I used to make out the completion of the Salaah of the Prophet e by the Takbeer.”  (Mishkaat, Page 88)  The commentators explaining the meaning of this Hadith explain that the Prophet e and the Sahabah used to make some kind of loud Zikr on completion of their Salaah.  On hearing this Zikr, Ibne Abbas (R.A.), who was unable to attend all the Salaahs due to his tender age at that time, would come to know that the Salaah has ended.  From this the Fuqahaa (jurists) have permitted the loud Zikr.  (Mirqaat, Sharah Mishkaat)

Similarly a lot of encouragement and virtues are mentioned with regards to reciting the first Kalimah, e.g.  A Hadith states that:  “The one who recites ‘La ilaaha illallah’ a hundred times in the morning as well as a hundred times in the evening, will get the reward of setting a hundred Arab slaves free.”  (Mishkaat, Page 202)  Another Hadith states that:  “The one who recites ‘La ilaaha illallah’ hundred times daily, his face will shine like the full moon on the Day of Qiyaamah.”    A Hadith states that:  “The best Zikr is ‘La ilaaha illallah.'”  Another Hadith mentions that:  “Qiyaamah will not come as long as there is someone saying Allah, Allah.”  Sahih Muslim (Mishkaat, Page 480)   This Hadith shows the permissibility of making Zikr saying ‘Allah Allah’.

Many Ahaadith have been narrated with regards to making congregational Zikr also, e.g. the Angels surround that group of people who make the Zikr of Allah, and they are showered with the mercy of Allah together with peace and tranquillity descending on them.  Angels are always in search of gatherings making the Zikr of Allah.” 

“The gatherings of the Zikr of Allah are the gardens of Paradise.”  (Mishkaat, Page 196)  The Prophet e also states that:  “Sitting in the gathering of such people who make the Zikr of Allah from Fajr Salaah until sunrise is more beloved to me than setting four Arab slaves free, and sitting in a gathering of such people who make the Zikr of Allah from Asr Salaah until sunset is more beloved to me than setting four Arab slaves free.”  (Mishkaat, Page 89)  Many other similar Ahaadith have been narrated in Fadhaail-e-Zikr by Sheikh Zakariyya (R.A.A.)

In light of these Ahaadith the Buzrugs have suggested loud Zikr of the twelve Tasbeehs for the spiritual upliftment of ones self.  (Imdaadul Fataawaa, Vol. 5, Page 223)

Loud Zikr is permissible if it does not cause any disturbance to anyone performing Salaah, performing any other ‘Ibaadat or sleeping.  (Ad-Durrul Mukhtaar, Vol. 1, Page 488)
