On The Prayer for Forgiveness [Ṣalātut-Tasbīḥ] · Is it Prayed in Congregation? · Part Seven
by The Albaani Site
See here for part six.
Questioner: In relation to Ṣalātut-Tasbīḥ … we know that the Prophet ﷺ taught [his uncle] ʿAbbās this prayer but that he ﷺ didn’t pray it [himself], and it has been said that it has not been reported that the Companions prayed it in congregation … how do we pray it in congregation and call the people to that?
Al-Albaani: I didn’t know that you pray it in jamāʿah—you pray it in jamāʿah?
Questioner: Yes, we have prayed it in congregation on more than one occasion Shaikh.
Al-Albaani: That’s on you … Ṣalātut-Tasbīḥ is legislated to be prayed like the Sunnahs, on its own.
Questioner: Everyone [praying it] individually?
Al-Albaani: … or at home.
Questioner: You mean you didn’t pray it with us?
Questioner: A personal question, have you ever prayed it?
Questioner: You did. So praying it in congregation is an innovation?
Questioner: Wallaahi, we reported from you that you prayed it with us, O Shaikh.
Al-Albaani: May Allaah forgive you.
