The Tasbih Prayer: Is It A Reprehensible Innovation?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Qibla.com

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

Is the “Salatut Tasbeeh” an innovation that should be avoided?  I ask this because I have noticed that certain scholars have classified the hadith regarding Salatul Tasbeeh as a weak and fabricated hadith, and should be avoided. Can you please tell me where the Hanafi school stand on this issue?  

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Walaikum assalam,

There is a long-standing dispute among the hadith scholars about the status of the hadiths regarding the Tasbih Prayer.

But the stronger opinion does seem to be that the hadith is sound, and Allah knows best, as Hafidh Ibn Hajar stated, and confirmed by my friend and teacher, Shaykh Ahmad Abd al-Jabbar.

In the Hanafi madhhab, it is recommended, as mentioned in the major texts, such as Ibn Abidin’s Hashiya.

Walaikum assalam,

Faraz Rabbani.
