Benefits of a Tasbeeh


tasbih.jpgHakimul Ummat Ashraf Ali Thanvi (Rahmatullah Ta’ala alayhi) writes in “Hayaat al-Muslimeen”:

“A Tasbeeh is also beneficial for inculcating in one the habit of constant Zikr. For this purpose the use of a Tasbeeh is therefore best. Some people who are not in the habit of making Zikr constantly, feel that by keeping a Tasbeeh in hand at most times, one will develop riyaa (show) since people will regard the holder of the Tasbeeh as a pious person. This thought prevents them from keeping a tasbeeh at hand. The result of this attitude is that they do not develop the habit of Zikr. It should be realised that riyaa is an internal condition. If one’s niyyat is to attract people’s attention and to display piety then only will the question of riyaa arise. Riyaa is not what others think of one. One should not indulge unnecessarily in such suspicions which are merely traps of shaitaan to divert one from constant Zikr.”
