Assalamualaykum ,

Respected mufti saab is it permissible to recite Allahuakabar jus before saying samiallah and then stand straight in qiyam, according to Imam Abu Hanifa? If not then is this permissible accordding to any other school of thought?

Jazakallah Khair


Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah's guidance)

For a Munfarid (Individual prayer) to say 'Samiallahuli man Hamida, Rabbana Lakal Hamd' is a Sunnah and agreed upon by all the four School of thought. (Darse Tirmidhi Vol. 2 Pg. 48)

Whoever recites Allahu Akbar after doing Ruku, it is permissible. However, this is contrary to the sunnah and is therefore detested.

And Only Allah Ta'ala Knows Best.
