Tasbeehaat Of Rukoo And Sajdah


What will be the condition of the salaah if a person does not recite the Tasbeehaat in Rukoo or Sajdah or only recites it once?

Will Salaah be valid?


It is Sunnah to read the Tasbeeh thrice in Ruku’a and Sajdah. If a person only reads the Tasbeeh once or does not read it at all, in both these situations, if he stayed in that posture for the duration of at least one Tasbeeh, then his Salaah will be valid.

If he remained there for the duration of less than one Tasbeeh, then Sajdah Sahw will be Wajib if it was unintentional and if it was done intentionally, then it will be Wajib to repeat the Salaah.

(يجب) وظاهر الآية أنه فرض نهر ج ٦ ٥ وفى مرقى الفلاح: (و) يسن (تسبسحه) اى الركوع (ثلاثا) لقول النبي : إذا ركع احدكم فليقل ثلاث مرات سبحان ربى العظيم ، وذلك أدناه وإذا سجد فليقل سبحان ربى الأعلى ثلاث مرات
