The Tasbeeh of Hazrat Fatima Zahra (A.S.) is one of the Islamic Sharia’s firmly prescribed acts of devotion. In the view of the great Imams (A.S.) and Shiite jurists, it is extremely significant. From the standpoint of execution, it is a simple, quick, yet extremely potent act of devotion; its impact, fulfillment, and virtue are many. This may be seen in the fact that when the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.A.) wanted to teach his daughter Hazrat Fatima Zahra about this act of worship, he asked her to do it (A.S.), He said
O Fatima I’ve given you something greater than a maidservant, the universe, and everything in it. Allah is not adored by anything more worthy than the Tasbeeh of Fatima Zahra,’ says Imam Muhammad Baqir (A.S.) in this regard. If there was any higher form of worship, the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.A.) would have given it to Hazrat Fatima (A.S.)

Meaning and Benefits of Tasbeeh Fatima
Means “Purity be to Allah”.When someone says “Subhanallah,” they are accepting and declaring Allah Ta’ala’s pureness, or the fact that Allah Ta’ala is without flaw or imperfection. There is also an acknowledgment that we are imperfect in this. There are so many flaws and flaws in us.
When we worship Allah Ta’ala in this way, Allah Ta’ala purifies us, according to Hazrat Maulana Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Saheb (Rahmatullahi ‘Alayh).
Females should read “SubhanAllah” 300 times, according to several Mashaa’ikh. Tazkiyah can be attained just through this Tasbeeh (purification). Allah Ta’ala will purify, and what will the state of such a heart be when Allah Ta’ala purifies?
Means “Praise be to Allah”. Allah Ta’ala does not require our praise. Either we worship Allah Ta’ala or not, all praise is for Him. The only one deserving of honor is Allah Ta’ala. In Allah Ta’ala’s Hamd, the heart accepts Allah Ta’ala just as He is. We should reflect and trust that Allah Ta’ala is the exclusive possessor of all praising attributes. We, on the other hand, are worthless and have nothing.
When someone praises Allah Ta’ala, Allah Ta’ala, out of His Ihsaan and Karam, arranges conditions in which people are praising the people in return.
“Allah hu Akbar”
Means “Allah is the greatest”. Allah Ta’ala possesses all of the characteristics of grandeur. Allah Ta’ala is the only one who can achieve greatness. When a person recognizes and accepts Allah Ta’ala’s Greatness, Allah Ta’ala bestows honor on the person who respects Him in the hearts of the creation.
This honor, according to Hazrat Maulana Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar (Rahmatullahi ‘Alayh), is based on the Masnoon Dua, which says, “O Allah, make me tiny (insignificant) in my own eyes, and make me large (significant) in the eyes of the people.”
Importance of Tasbeeh Fatima
About the importance of this Tasbeeh in the eyes of the Ahlulbayt (a.s.), Imam Jafar Sadiq (a.s.) says:
“I prefer reciting Hazrat Fatima Zahra’s (A.S) Tasbeeh every day after every prayer to reciting one thousand units of (mustahab) prayer.”
Sins are forgiven when this Tasbeeh is recited. Imam Mohammad Baqir (a.s.) states in a tradition:
“Whoever recites Lady Zahraa’s Tasbeeh and then requests pardon will be forgiven.”
It also has the effect of driving Shaitan away and bringing Allah fulfillment, as tradition from Imam Mohammad Baqir (a.s.) states:
“(Reciting Tasbeeh) drives away Shaitan and brings Allah satisfaction.”
After Namaz, Hazrat Fatima Zahra’s (A.S) Tasbeeh should be recited instantly. This means that once the reciter has completed the Namaz, he should remain seated in the same Tashahud position without shifting his feet or doing anything else, and immediately begin reciting the Tasbeeh.
