Once a year or more


O son, we must be grateful that He has granted us hidayah and tawfik. That one like us who rarely stood on the prayer mat before, became acquainted with it. That we have been taught and inspired to do salatul tasbeeh. That we have been given the realization to perform it at least once a year. It's a big opportunity, a big time sinner like us gladly grab. We are grateful. We count our blessings, each one of them. He is indeed Generous.

When we learned that Salatul Tasbeeh could make Allah forgive our sins, its first and its last, its past and its present, involuntary or voluntary, no matter how small or great, be it in secrecy or openly, we make an effort to pray salatul tasbeeh  once, twice or more in a year because we learned that:
"If you are able to pray it once every day, do so; and if you are unable to do so, then once in every week; if you are (still) unable to do so, then once in every month; if you are still unable to do so, then once a year; if you are (still) unable to do so, then once in your life."

Both the hijrah (lunar) year and the solar year have just begun. We wish to remind ourselves to do this special salat at least once this year. We are not sure how far into the year we shall live, so we remind ourselves to get on with it quickly. InshaAllah.

سُبْحَانَ اللهِ وَالْحَمْدُ ِللهِ وَلاَ اِلَهَ اِلاََّ اللهُُ وَاللهُُ اََكْبَرْ
