The Holy Prophet S.A.W.S. counseled his uncle Syedina Abbas R.A.A. to perform this Salaah after performing the two Sunnah Rakaah’s of Salaahul Faj'r (before the Imam to commences the Far’d Salaah in Jama’ath).
We may perform this Salaah at other times too. It is most auspicious for all of us.

Fifteen times before going to Rukooh in each Rakaah
Ten times in the Rukooh, after reciting SUBHANA RABBIYAL AZEEM
Ten times after rising and before going into Saj’dah
Ten times in each Saj’dah, after reciting SUB'HANA RABBIYAL AALAA
Ten times while being seated after the first Saj’dah
Ten times while remaining seated after the second Saj’dah of the first rakaah and before standing up
Ten times while seated, and before reciting the Ath’thahiy’yaath, in the
