What is Tasbih Fatimah? The Dua to Boost Your Energy!

One time Fatimah went to complain her husband, Ali, about how exhausting and tiring the housework has become on her.

Ali and Fatimah were very poor actually. Unlike many other homes, they had no money to afford to have a servant or a maid to help out in the housework.

So Fatimah used to do everything, and you got to appreciate that because there were no washing machines, no dishwashers, no vacuums… it was all physical work.

So, Ali hearing this he says:

“O Fatimah! How about you get a servant?”

“How can I get a servant? We don’t have money?”

He tells her:

“I have heard that your father Muhammad (peace be upon him) just recently received some prisoners of war, and why not you go and request from him to give you one of those people to be a servant for us?”

Fatimah liked the idea and she heads there right away. She knocks on the door, Aisha opens the door, and they greet each other. Fatimah asks:

“O Aisha, is my father here?”

Aisha says:

“No, he’s not here.”

Then Fatimah basically wants to tell her exactly what the request is like, and she told her:

“I heard my father’s received some prisoner of war and I was hoping I can get one to be like a servant to help me.”

Aisha said:

“The moment your father comes back, I will surely let him know of what your need is.”

Fatimah goes back home.

The Prophet, after some time, comes back to his house, and Aisha tells him exactly why Fatimah came, and that she’s looking for a servant to help her out with all the housework.

Tasbih Fatimah

Being an amazing father, the Prophet did not delay it for two or three days, he says:

You know what, I’m going to go right now to the house of Ali.

As he gets there, Ali and Fatimah would like to stand up and greet the Prophet, but the Prophet says:

Stay the way you are, no need to stand up.

The Prophet comes and sits in between Fatimah and Ali and said:

Shall I not guide you of something that is better and more beneficial to both of you than whatever you have requested (having a servant)? Whenever you’re about to go to sleep, say Subhanallah 33 times, say Alhamdulillah 33 times, and say Allahu Hu Akbar 34 times. This is better for you than having a servant. (Al-Bukhari) Say these remembrances (dua) before you sleep and Allah will boost you with physical energy that you’re able to work the following day; you’ll feel as if someone is supporting you, as if there’s a servant helping you. That’s how much energy you will have.

And some other understanding of this narration is that you will not feel as exhausted whenever you do the actual daily work that you’re used to because of that dua you’ve said that night before.

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so


It’s a sad day for all those who knew Ali Banat, the young man gifted with cancer. Ali Banat was an inspiring Australian Muslim philanthropist whose diagnosis of cancer motivated him to dedicate his life to charity work. “At this point in my life, Alhamdulillah I have been gifted by Allah with cancer throughout my body and I have changed my whole life to helping people,” he said. An Inspiration to Muslim Youth A man of a kind heart was known for his charity work over the past three years. One of his biggest achievements is MATW project, (Muslims Around The World) launched in October 2015 to assist those less fortunate in the poverty-stricken areas of Togo, Africa. He was an inspiration to Muslim youth, dedicating his big fortune to charity work. His organization built mosques and schools for the less fortunate in Africa. May Allah accept it from him! Indeed, to Allah we belong and to Him we shall return. May Allah have mercy on our brother Ali Banat and make it easy


Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many. Being diagnosed with cancer is like death sentence for many. But this is not the way Australian Muslim Ali Ali Banat sees it. For him, the sickness is unquestionably a gift from Allah. “At this point in m
