Tasbih of Fatimah
|Shia Islam portal|
The Tasbih of Fatimah (Arabic: تسبیح فاطمة), commonly known as "Tasbih Hadhrat Zahra" or "Tasbih al-Zahra" (Arabic: تسبیح الزهراء), is a special dhikr which is attributed to Fatimah bint Muhammad, and is included 34 times Allah-o-Akbar (Takbir), 33 times Alhamdulillah (Tahmid) and 33 times Subhanallah (Tasbih).
According to an Islamic narration from Ali ibn Abi Talib, the Islamic prophet Muhammad taught this dhikr (Tasbih of Fatimah) to his daughter Fatimah. According to this narration Fatimah who was suffering hardships of daily routine, intended to ask him for a servant helping them with household chores, then her father (Muhammad) taught her the mentioned tasbih and told her that this tasbih is better for you than that servant; hence Fatimah pleased with it.
In regards to this tasbih which is also famous as Tasbihat al-Sayyidah al-Zahra or Tasbihat Hazrat Fatimah al-Zahra, it is said that this is Mustahab (recommended) to say tasbih of Fatimah after every (Wajib/Mustahabb) prayers; it is also emphasized Mustahab to say this dhikr after Fajr prayer.
It has been narrated from Muhammad al-Baqir that he said: Allah has not been worshiped by anything better than tasbih Hazrat Zahra --from the aspect of praise and dhikr; Allah would grant it to Fatimah if there was/is a better practice rather than this tasbih.
Ja'far al-Sadiq said: “Reciting Tasbeeh of Hazrat Zahra (s.a.) everyday after every Salat is liked by me more than reciting one thousand rakats of (mustahab) namaz”. Moreover, Muhammad al-Baqir mentioned that: “One who recites the Tasbeeh of Hazrat Zahra (s.a.) and then seeks forgiveness, will be forgiven”.
