The World Federation One Stop Fiqh

Ruling 1035

When one has the option to, it is better that in sajdah he says:

subḥānal lāh

سُبْحَانَ اللهِ



subḥāna rabbiyal aʿlā wa biḥamdih

سُبْحَانَ رَبِّيَ الْأَعْلَىٰ وَ بِحَمْدِهِ


…and these words must be said consecutively and in correct Arabic. Saying any dhikr suffices, but based on obligatory precaution it must be of this length. And it is recommended that one says subḥāna rabbiyal aʿlā wa biḥamdih three, five, seven, or even more times.
