Questioner: How do you pray Ṣalātut-Tasbīḥ?

Al-Albaani: As has been reported in the paths of the ḥadīth about it, Ṣalātut-Tasbīḥ is like the other prayers, it differs only in that in each rakʿah there are seventy-five tasbīḥs to be said, so the total would be three hundred.

So in the first rakʿah, before the bowing [rukūʿ], he says the tasbīḥ fifteen times, [so he says]:

سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ،  وَالْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ، وَلاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ،  وَاللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ
Subḥānallāh, walḥamdulillāh, wa lā ilāha illallāh, wallāhu-Akbar

And then he bows, when he has finished [saying what he says in] the regular bowing he [then] says this tasbīḥ ten times [while in rukūʿ], so that makes it twenty-five.

Then he raises his head from the rukūʿ [i.e., stands up] and says: Samiʿallāhu liman-ḥamidah, Rabbanā walakal-ḥamd, and then says it ten times.

And likewise with every pillar, ten tasbīḥs—when he prostrates, after he has said the [normal] tasbīḥs for the sajdah he then says ten of the Ṣalātut-Tasbīḥ ones … when he rests between the two sajdahs, ten tasbīḥs, when he raises his head from the second sajdah [ten tasbīḥs], when he sits to rest after the second sajdah [before standing up for the next rakʿah], ten tasbīḥs, in total these come to seventy-five.

So he does that in every rakʿah which makes the total three hundred tasbīḥs.

This is how it is performed and he doesn’t add anything else to the sunnah prayers except these tasbīḥs and in the order I just mentioned now.

Riḥlatun-Nūr, 48b.

[So you stand to pray:

—after having read Fātiḥah and some of the Qurʾān you say the tasbīḥ fifteen times.
—then when in rukūʿ after having said the normal praise said in it, you say this tasbīḥ ten times.
—then after rising from rukūʿ ten times.
—in sajdah, after having said the normal praise said in it, ten times.
—between the two sajdahs ten times.
—in the second sajdah ten times.
—after the second sajdah while sitting before getting up for the next rakʿah, ten times.

And then you stand up for the next rakʿah. That makes seventy-five, repeated over four rakʿahs, three-hundred tasbīḥs. Also see here.]
