Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
The poor Emigrants came to the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings upon him) and said: "The wealthy have gone with the highest ranks and lasting bliss." He asked: "How is that?" They replied: "They offer Salat (prayer) as we offer it; they observe fast as we do; (and as they are wealthy) they perform Hajj and 'Umrah, and go for Jihad, and they spend in charity but we cannot, and they free the slaves but we are unable to do so." The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings upon him) said, "Shall I not teach you something with which you may overtake those who surpassed you and with which you will surpass those who will come after you? None will excel you unless he who does which you do." They said: "Yes, please do, O Messenger of Allah" He (peace and blessings upon him) said, "You should recite: Tasbih (Allah is free from imperfection), Takbir (Allah is Greatest), Tahmid (Praise be to Allah) thirty-three times after each Salat."
(Al-Bukhari and Muslim)
Abu Salih, the sub-narrator of the Hadith said, when Abu Hurairah (may Allah SWT be pleased with him) was asked about the manner of reciting Tasbih, Tahmid and Takbir, he said, "Recite: "Subhan-Allah, wal-hamdulillah, wallahu Akbar', till all are recited thirty-three times."
It is among the blessings of Allah (SWT) that He gives His slaves tremendous opportunities and times when they can earn multitudes of rewards, seek forgiveness, and attain closeness to their Lord, their Sustainer. Let us make the most of them.
