Subhan Allah is a compound word made up of the Arabic words "Subhan" and "Allah." In its literal definition, "Subhan" declares the supremacy and purity of Allah, which exalts Him. According to the beliefs of Islam, Allah is the creator of this universe. The word Allah is linguistically related to Aramic, Syrian, and Hebrew words for God. Put together, Subhan Allah is a phrase used to exclaim Allah’s glory and show one’s respect, adoration, and admiration for Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى).
Whoever recites Subhan Allah Tasbih 100 times in the morning and 100 times in the evening will receive a reward equivalent to that of someone who has completed 100 Hajj.
Abu Hurairah reported the Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him) as saying:
If anyone says a hundred times in the morning: "Glory be to Allah, the Sublime, and I begin with praise of him," and says likewise in the evening, no one from the creatures will bring anything like the one which he will bring. Grade: Sahih (Al-Albani), Sunan Abi Dawud 5091
Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) advised Fatima Binte Muhammad, his beloved daughter, to recite "Subhan Allah" 33 times, Alhumdulliah 33 times, and Allah o Akbar 34 times after each fard salah (namaz) before going to sleep. This tasbih reminds us to be grateful to Allah at all times, especially in tough situations. Moreover, it teaches us to become self-reliant and not get caught up in the desire for worldly desires.
Narrated `Ali: Fatima complained of the suffering caused to her by the hand mill. Some Captives were brought to the Prophet; she came to him but did not find him at home. `Aisha was present there to whom she told (of her desire for a servant). When the Prophet (ﷺ) came, Aisha informed him about Fatima's visit. `Ali added, "So the Prophet (ﷺ) came to us, while we had gone to our bed, I wanted to get up, but the Prophet (ﷺ) said, "Remain at your place." Then he sat down between us till I found the coolness of his feet on my chest. Then he said, "Shall I teach you a thing which is better than what you have asked me? When you go to bed, say, 'Allahu-Akbar' thirty-four times, and 'Subhan Allah thirty-three times, and 'Al hamdu-li l-lah thirty-three times for that is better for you both than a servant." Sahih al-Bukhari 3705
Subhan Allah is an expression that shows a Muslim's admiration and praise for Allah. When you remember Allah in every phase of life, Allah remembers you, too, and bestows favor upon you. Reciting tasbih will bring you favors in this world and the hereafter.
Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "There are two expressions which are very easy for the tongue to say, but they are very heavy in the balance and are very dear to The Beneficent (Allah), and they are, 'Subhan Allah Al- `Azim and 'Subhan Allah wa bihamdihi.'" Sahih al-Bukhari 6406
The Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) said that recite 100 tasbihat, 1000 good deeds are written for him, and 1000 bad deeds are wiped away from their record.
Mus'ab bin Sa'd narrated from his father that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said to those sitting with him: "Is one of you incapable of attaining a thousand good deeds?" So a questioner among those seated with him asked him: "How can one of us earn a thousand good deeds?" He said: "(When) one of you recites a hundred Tasbīḥāt, a thousand good deeds are written for him, and a thousand evil deeds are wiped away from him." Grade: Sahih (Darussalam), Jami` at-Tirmidhi 3463
