Fatwa ID: 02507

Answered by: Maulana Javed ibn Nazir Kachhalia

Question:

I read a hadith that we should read Ayat al kursi immediately after salam. But someone told me that it should be read after sunnats. But the hadith states immediately after salam. And same with 33-33 times subhanallah and alhumdulillah and allahuakbar. Please tell me the correct way to recite these

Answer

بسم الله الرحمن الرحي

In regards to Ayatul Kursi:

The hadith is:
“Whoever recites Aayatul Kursi after every Fard (Fard Salah), only death is keeping him/her from entering Jannah. (As soon as he/she dies, will enter Jannah) (Nasa’i, Ibne Hibban,Kanzul Ummal)

In regards to the Tasbeeh (SubhanAllah, Alhamdulillah, Allahu Akbar):

The hadith says:

Ka'b bin 'Ujrah raḥimahullāh (may Allāh have mercy upon him) reported:

The Messenger of Allah () said, "There are some words, the reciters of which will never be disappointed. These are: Tasbih [saying ‘Subhan-Allah’ (Allah is free from imperfection)], thirty-three times, Tahmid [saying ‘Al-hamdulillah’ (praise be to Allah)] thirty-three times and Takbir [saying ‘Allahu Akbar’ (Allah is Greatest)] thirty-four times; and these should be recited after the conclusion of every prescribed prayer." [Muslim]

Only Allah knows best.
