“I saw Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) counting them on (the fingers of) his right hand.” (Tirmidhee)
There are different hadiths related to the count of tasbeehat that Prophet (PBUH) would do after the prayers. According to some hadiths, it was Subhanallah, and al-hamdulillah 33 time one after the another and by the end it was Allahu Akabar 34 times. Thus a Muslim must also revive this Sunah of Prophet (PBUH) and must do dhikr on his or her fingers after every obligatory prayer.
