Subhanallah at all times!
Subhanallah is one sublimely glorious word to express the exaltation and glorification of one’s Creator, the Almighty Lord – Allah. It is expressed since time immemorial. And expressed at all times!
“So exalted is Allah when you reach the evening and when you reach the morning.
And to Him is [due all] praise throughout the heavens and the earth. And [exalted is He] at night and when you are at noon.” (Surah Ar-Room 30: 17-18)
The word ‘heen’ used in the verse carries the meaning of ‘time’ and ‘at the approach of’ certain time’.
If one looks reflectively at the above mentioned verses of the Qur’an, it is clear that we are commanded to glorify – and we glorify Allah at all times – evening, morning, noon, when day begins to decline and night.
Our five time prayers – fajr, zuhr, asr, maghrib and isha – explicitly convey the message that Allah is glorified at all times.
We must also know that every living creature knows its own mode of Tasbeeh, exaltation of Allah.
Tasbeeh, therefore, is not done in isolation by human beings. We are in unison with nature. In harmony with the universe! Subhanallah!!

Thank you and Jazakallaahu Khayra.
Dear brothers/sisters, I found this article from Islamicity to be useful and therefore reproducing here:
“SubhanAllah, He is Absolutely Flawless. The utter beauty, completeness, total negation, absolute perfection and exaltation that is contained in saying those two words completely boggles my mind and I know I cannot do any justice to it. My intention is to give a tiny drop from the ocean of what tasbeeh really contains, so we do not continue to repeat this phrase (especially in salah) without knowing its true meaning.
The word tasbeeh means the act of saying subhanAllah just as tahmeed means the act of saying alhamdulillah.
Tasbeeh is comprised of two words: Subhan and Allah:
Subhan is from seen-ba-ha and it means to glorify, praise, magnify, extol Allah, by tongue or by heart. It includes:
1. To say He has no flaw in His Perfection, that He is Far above any imperfection.
2. He is far above and beyond any similarity to His Creation.
3. He is free from and above all kinds of association (shirk) and any un-divine attributes.
When one does tasbeeh, they negate any flaw and affirm all perfection in Allah azza wa jal.
Translations such as “glory be to Allah” do not contain the full meaning of tasbeeh, rather it is an impartial translation. A more appropriate translation is, SubhanAllah: How Perfect is Allah and Far Above any flaw and association.
Another meaning of the root seen-ba-ha is the act of swimming, floating, and being quick and swift as well as being remote. How does this connect with glorifying Allah? It denotes the quickness in betaking oneself to Allah, in agility in serving and obeying Him. When doing tasbeeh, you affirm (i.e., keep afloat) the Perfection of Allah ta’ala and His disassociation to His creation. It is used for prompt obedience that comes out immediately, like an immediate reaction. (Imagine when you see something amazing, right away, you say: “subhanAllah!”)
The dwellers of Jannah’s last call will be: “Alhamdulillah!”, but what do they say when they enter Jannah? A name of Allah that coincides with this root is As-Subooh, which means The Exalted One who is praised and glorified extensively. We learn from a hadeeth in Saheeh Muslim from A’ishah radiyallahu anha, that the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam used to say in ruku and sajdah: Subboohun, Quddoosun, Rabb al Malaa’ikati war Rooh. Subboohun: the One who is Exalted a lot, Quddoos : the One who is very Pure, Rabb ul Malaaikati war Rooh : Rabb of the angels and of Jibreel. Why do we say this in ruku and sajdah? It is out of humility, reminding ourselves how small we are, and we acknowledge Allah’s Purity and that He is the Rabb.
“Their call therein will be “Subhanaka Allahumma!”, How Exalted are You, O Allah, a Far from imperfection!” (Surah Yunus, verse 10)
So when we say “SubhanAllah” the complete meaning is (but not limited too): I declare (or celebrate, extol) the remoteness, or freedom, of Allah from any imperfection or impurity or from anything derogatory from His glory. From the attribution of there being an equal to Him, or any companion, or anything like unto Him, or anything contrary to Him, from everything that should not be attributed to Him.
