Q: Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) requested Hazrat Fatima (radhiyallahu anha) to recite 33 times Subhanallah, 33 times Alhamdulillah and 34 times Allahu Akbar which is termed as Tasbeeh-e-Fatimi. This would then serve as an energy booster. If I extend the zikr by adding La Howla wala quwwata illa billa… will it still be called Tasbeeh-e-Fatimi?
A: You may complete the tasbeeh-e-faatimi and after completing it you can recite “Laa howla…”
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
