ENERGY BOOSTER

Once Faathimah رضي الله تعالي عنها ه  had requested Rasulullah  صلى الله عليه وسلم  for a slave (servant) to assist her with all the difficult chores of the home.

 Rasulullah  صلى الله عليه وسلم  said to her and Ali  رضى الله تعالى عنه : “Should I not show you something better than what you asked for?

 When you retire to your bed, recite Subhanallah 33 times, Alhamdulillah 33 times and Allahu-Akbar 34 times. This is better for you than a servant” (Saheeh Bukhari #3705).

Faatimah رضي الله تعالي عنها was the beloved daughter of Rasulullah  صلى الله عليه وسلم . She is the leader of all the women of paradise. Despite all her virtue she never took it as below her dignity to carry out the domestic work. She used to grind the grain herself which caused corns on her hand. She carried water for the house in a leather bag which left a mark on her chest.  She cleaned the house herself which made her clothes dirty (Sifatus Safwah vol. 1, pg. 310).

 Rasulullah  صلى الله عليه وسلم  taught her these tasbeehaat instead of providing her a servant to help her. The Scholars of hadeeth deduce from this that the recitation of these tasbeehaat before going to bed, apart from the spiritual benefit, will be a means of gaining physical strength which will make it easy for one to accomplish one’s daily tasks.

From the time that Ali  رضى الله تعالى عنه  was given this prescription, he says that he never missed reciting them a single night, even on the night of a severe battle when he was the commander of the army (Saheeh Muslim #6917).

Let us also practice on this. Recite these tasbeehaat every night and derive the immense benefits in this world and the hereafter.  
آميـــن يا أرحــم الراحميـن
