Ruling 1029

It is recommended that a person says takbīr before going into rukūʿ and while standing straight. It is also recommended that when a man performs rukūʿ, he should push back his knees, keep his back flat, stretch his neck forward and keep it in line with his back, look between his feet, invoke blessings upon Prophet Muḥammad (Ṣ) and his progeny (ṣalawāt) before or after the dhikr; and after rising from rukūʿ and standing straight, and while his body is still, he should say:

سَمِعَ اللهُ لِمَنْ حَمِدَهُ

samiʿal lāhu liman ḥamidah
