Answered by: Alimah Aabedah Khatun
I am a Hanafi Muqallid from Bangladesh. Is it permissible to say ”Rabbana lakal hamd hamdan katheeran tayyiban mubaarak feeh” after the rukoo when we stand?
May I read ”Allahummagfirlee, warhamni, wahdini, wa aafini, warzuqni, wajburni, warfa’ni” in between two sujood in fard salah?
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Firstly, reading ”Rabbana lakal hamd hamdan katheeran tayyiban mubaarak feeh” would be permissible when standing up after ruku. The prophet (s.a.w) has mentioned a hadith on this dua, as a man recited this dua after standing up from ruku and the prophet (s.a.w) said he saw 30 angels competing to write this good deed first.
One day we were praying behind the Prophet. When he raised his head from bowing, he said, “Sami`a l-lahu liman hamidah.” A man behind him said, “Rabbana wa laka l-hamdu, hamdan kathiran taiyiban mubarakan fihi” (O our Lord! All the praises are for You, many good and blessed praises). When the Prophet completed the prayer, he asked, Who has said these words? The man replied, I. The Prophet said I saw over thirty angels competing to write it first. The Prophet rose (from bowing) and stood straight till all the vertebrae of his spinal column came to a natural position. (Sahih Bukhari – hadith 799)
Secondly, yes it is also permissible to read ”Allahummaghfirli, warhamni, wahdini, wa aafini, warzuqni, wajburni, warfa’ni” in between the 2 sujoods in salah, as it is mentioned in a hadith:
Ibn Abbas narrated that Between the two prostrations, the Prophet would say: Allahummaghfir li, warhamni, wajburni, wahdini, warzuqni. O, Allah! Pardon me, have mercy on me, help me, guide me, and grant me sustenance. (Sunan Tirmidhi – hadith 284)
There are different duas mentioned in different hadith, but it would be permissible to read these mentioned duas in between the 2 prostrations in nafl prayers or if you are praying fardh individually.
Only Allah knows best.
