How should we recite the Tasbih Fatimi after the Fard Salahs?
1) 33 times Subanallah, 33 times Alhamdulillah, 33 times Allahu Akbar and 1 time La ilaha illallahu wahdahu la sharika lahu lahul mulku walahul hamdu wahuwa ‘ala kulli shay in qadir.
2) or 33, 33 & 34?
One may practice on either of these two methods as both are found in authentic Hadiths.
In fact, ‘Allamah Nawawi (rahimahullah) has also suggested combining both versions by reciting the Allahu Akbar thirty four times and also adding the additional recital of La ilaha illallahu wahdahu la sharika lahu… at the end.
(Al-Mufhim of Qurtubi, Hadith: 482-483, Al-Minhaj of Nawawi, Hadith: 1346, Fathul Bari of Ibn Hajar, Hadith: 843 & Al-Futuhatur Rabbaniyyah, vol.3 pg.42)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
