Salam Alykom

Anyone who could help me find some reliable hadiths about Tasbih Fatimah Zahra S.A and how it should be done? A brother was asking me for some hadith sources regarding it but I couldn't really find any online. :)


JazakumAllah khairan

Imam Ali said to a man from Bani Sa'eed:

...The Prophet (pbuh) upon hearing this, said: 

`Shall I teach you something that is better for you than a servant and a world with everything in it? After every prayer say: Allahu Akbar thirty four (34) times, Alhamdulillah thirty three (33) times and Subhan Allah thirty three (33) times then conclude that with la illaha ila Allah. Surely this is better for you than that which you wanted and the world and its belongings.' 

Thus, Fatima adhered to this glorification after every prayer; and it came to be known as `Tasbih Fatima.' 

'Abu Haroun, surely we command our children to adhere to `Tasbih Fatima' the same way we command them to perform prayers. So perform the tasbih, for whoever adheres to it shall never be miserable.'"

- (Bihar al Anwar)


The Prophet (pbuh) also says, had there been a better tasbih, he would have taught it to Fatimah (as).

- (Furu `ul Kafi, vol. 3, p. 343, "The Book of the Salat" ch. on "The After-the-Salat Du'a"', hadith 14.)


Imam as-Sadiq (as) is quoted to have said that these tasbihs every day after every salat are more loved by me than a thousand rak`ats of the salat every day.

- (Biharul Anwar, vol. 83, p. 332, quoting Thawabul A'mal, p. 149. Wasa'ilush-Shi'ah, vol. 4. p. 1024, " The Book of as-Salat ", chs. on "After the-Salat Invocation", ch. 9, hadith 2.)

    • Anthony Joshua is not a marquee name? After he beat the great Klitchko?
    • Why people make Islam so hard? No ideas. Is not hard. People just complicating stuff in my opinion. I don't see anything to support your claim.
    • Where is water cooked? This remind me the day the Syrians got into Europe and they where given bottles of water to drink and they started throwing the water away and then complained of being thirsty.
    • Salam. You asked a good question and I admire your sensitivity to the Holy Month of Muharram. A refrigerator is a necessity especially for someone who needs to store a medication cooler than room temperature. There is no problem with buying something you need in Muharram, just try to do your shopping before or after the 9th (Tasua) and the 10th (Ashura). Those two days are when Imam Hussein AS and his companions in Karbala lost their lives and we should honor them by mourning. 
    • Shi'as that look down upon you because of your name are probably unaware to the fact that the Imams named their children with your name as well. You are actually doing us a great service brother. Many Sunnis often ask the Shi'a why we don't name our children and follow the sunnah of the Imams who named their children 'Umar, 'Uthman, or Aisha. You are helping us prove that we do indeed name our children the way the Imams named their children (although these names are indeed seldom heard nowadays). It's true that such names have negativity associated with them because of certain personalities in Islam's history, but they are also associated with some of the greatest personalities as well. If you look at recent blog entries, brother Islamic Salvation has some great posts on 'Uthman b. Madh'un, a great companion of the Prophet. Imam Ali also named a son with your blessed name. - Abu al-Faraj said: Uthman b. Ali about whom it is narrated from Ali that he said: I name him with the name of my brother Uthman b. Madh`un.
