بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

We begin with Allah’s blessed name, we praise him and we glorify him, seek his forgiveness and ask him to guide us. Whoever Allah guides, None can lead astray and whoever he misguides, None can guide. There is no power and no strength except from Allah, The most high, the Most great, the most powerful. We bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. We pray for peace and blessings on all the noble messengers and in particular on the last of them all “the blessed prophet Mohammad (pbuh)”

Narrated Abdullah Ibn Abbas: The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) said to al-Abbas ibn AbdulMuttalib: Abbas, my uncle, shall I not give you, shall I not present to you, shall I not donate to you, shall I not produce for you ten things? If you act upon them, Allah will forgive you your sins, first and last, old and new, involuntary and voluntary, small and great, secret and open.

These are the ten things:

you should pray four rak'ahs, reciting in each one Fatihat al-Kitab and a surah.

When you finish the recitation of the first rak'ah you should say fifteen times while standing: [ 'Subhanallah, al-hamdulillah, wa la ilaha illallah, wa Allahu Akbar'] "Glory be to Allah", "Praise be to Allah", "There is no god but Allah", "Allah is most great".

Then you should bow and say it ten times while bowing.

Then you should raise your head after bowing and say it ten times.

Then you should kneel down in prostration and say it ten times while prostrating yourself.

Then you should raise your head after prostration and say it ten times.

Then you should prostrate yourself and say it ten times.

Then you should raise your head after prostrating and say it ten times in every rak'ah. You should do that in four rak'ahs. That is seventy-five [repetitions of the phrases] in each rak'ah.

If you can observe it once daily, do so; if not, then once weekly; if not, then once a month; if not, then once a year; if not, then once in your lifetime. ABU DAWOOD[BOOK 4: HADITH: 1292]

Ibn alMubarak says: "The tasbih prayer is a greatly desired act and it is desirable that one should punctually observe it and never neglect it.
Thus if one prays the tasbih prayer he will surely get great reward from his lord. And Allah alone knows the best.

I ask Allah to make this a sincere effort, seeking his pleasure, and I ask him to grant us refuge in him from the evils within ourselves, and that in our deeds. I ask him to grant us success in achieving whatever pleases him; And May Allah Shower His blessings and mercy upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his family and his Companions and on all those who follow him until the final hour.
