Answer:

 

Long ruku

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


 

Your Question: when the imam calls for ruku i say subhana..............3 times after i finished saying what should i do as the imam is still in ruku so let me know what duaa i must recite at the time of ruku after finishing subhana rabbi..................

Sahih Muslim Hadith 1697 Narrated by Hudhayfah (part)

I prayed (supererogatory) with the Messenger of Allah (saws) one night and he (saws) started reciting al-Baqarah. I thought that he would bow at the end of one hundred verses, but he continued.and (after the qiyam and recitation of quran) he (saws) would then bow (in ruku) and say: Glory be to my Mighty Lord (Subhanah Rabbi-al-Adheem). His (saws) bowing lasted about the same length of time as his standing (and then on returning to the standing posture after ruku) he (saws) would say: Allah listens to him who praises Him (Sameh Allaho leman hameda), and he (saws) would then stand about the same length of time as he (saws) had spent in bowing. He (saws) would then prostrate himself and say: Glory be to my Lord Most High (Subhanah Rabbi-al-Aala), and his prostration lasted nearly the same length of time as his standing.

 

The scholars and the jurists in Islam are almost unanimous in their opinion that the Messenger of Allah (saws) would Extol and Glorify the Lord in His Ruku by saying Subhanah Rabbi-al-Adheem, and Subhanah Rabbi-al-Aala in his Sujood. The Prophet (saws) guided the believers to only Extol and Glorify the Lord while in the state of ruku and not make any supplications; but while the in the state of prostration, one should Extol and Glorify the Lord and make any number of supplications one wills or wishes to make.

 

Sahih Muslim Hadith 970 Narrated by Abdullah ibn Abbas (part)

The Messenger of Allah (saws) said: I have been forbidden to recite the Qur'an in the state of bowing (ruku) and prostration (sajdah) in prayer. So far as the Ruku (bowing in prayer) is concerned, Extol in it the Great and Glorious Lord, and while prostrating (sajdah in prayer) yourselves be earnest in supplication, for it is fitting that your supplications should be answered.

 

The Messenger of Allah (saws) forbade the believers to recite the Quran or make supplications while in the state of ruku, but guided the believers to only Extol and Praise the Lord Most High in their state of ruku; and there is absolutely no harm if one were to say the terms of Extol and Praise any number of odd times (3,5,7,9, 1199, etc.) in their ruku.

 

Your Question: and when he say samiyallah.......................i say rabbbanah lakal hamd after that still the imam is in the same position , so please tell me what to read and also i experienced during sajdah.

In the standing position between the ruku and the sujood, one may again Extol and Praise the Lord as often as one wills. After the declaration of Rabbana lakal hamd lakas-shukhr (O our Lord, to You Alone belongs all Praise and all Thanks), one may say any of the phrases of Extol and Praise like Subhan-Allah (Glory be to Allah), Allah-o-Akbar (Allah is the Greatest), Alhamdolillaah (All Praise be to Allah), Laa ilaaha illalaah (There is no god but Allah), etc.

 

Your Question: for fard namaz also the last 2 rakah i say surah fateha and just standing till he calls for ruku

In the last two rakahs of the obligatory dhuhr, asr, and isha prayers, and in the last rakah of magrib prayers, one should only recite the Surah Al-Fatihah and remain silent until the imam declares the takbeer for ruku.

 

Your Question: my another question is during qayamul lail (tahajjud) imam recites quran for a long time, i cant concentrate, what should i do? if i know surah can i recite with him that way i can concentrate.

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 7 Surah Aaraaf verse 204:

204 When the Qur'an is (being) read, listen to it with attention and hold your peace: that ye may receive Mercy.

Dear and beloved Sister in Islam, it is a direct Command from Allah Subhanah that when His Glorious Words are being recited, one who sincerely believes in Allah and the Last Day must listen to them with full attention and hold their peace; thus it would not be appropriate or permissible for one to recite the Quran along with the imam while the imam is reciting it in the prayers.but one should strive to concentrate on its meanings in ones heart.

 

Dhakwan, the protege of Aishah, would lead her in (voluntary) prayer during Ramadan while reciting from a copy of the Qur'an.

Related by Malik.

 

Alternatively, if one wills, in ones nafl or supererogatory prayers like the qiyam-ul-layl, it is absolutely permissible in Shariah if one wishes to hold a copy of the Quran and follow the imams recitation while standing in prayer.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
