] and if they were descending they would make Tasbeeh [say Subhãna 'allahi (216)

(216) Meaning Glorified is Allah and removed from any imperfections.


Al-Albãni said that it was reported, with two or more narrators in succession missing from its chain, by way of Ibn Juraij in Sunan 'Abi Dawood. He said that it was merged into hadeeth #196 which Muslim reported by way of 'Ibn `Umar. Al-Albãni pointed out that Ibn Hajar said it was among the most precise [difficult to detect] mergings into a hadeeth. Merging is the addition of explanatory comments which are not part of the hadeeth into the hadeeth by one of its narrators. Al-Albãni said that this hadeeth was similarly reported in Saheeh 'Al-Bukhãri. The wording was like this: "We used to when climbing make Takbeer, and when descending make Tasbeeh." Al-Albãni included this hadeeth in The Authentic of Good Sayings as #140.
